Hello,

I would like to get some more detail information about your problem,

How long the problem is there? Which joints have been been affected? Is there swelling , redness , tenderness?

How many times do you pass stool ? its consistency?

How many days before the tooth was extrated?

Do you have any other disease?

Do you take any medicine?

Waiting for your reply.

Thank you.

  • i was born with what initially was thought mitral valve prolapse, but as i got older a new cardiaologist told me that i had regurgitation, and a narrow aorta.
  • 9/1 will be the 3rd day, i noticed my elbow was hurting for about a week when i moved it around ( thought i sleped bad) . then almost 3 days ago i felt all this pain all of a sudden come over me, it affected my knees, ankles lower spine area, neck, and elbows. no redness no swelling.
  • i went to the dentist approx a week ago, i have to go back and remove stitches.
  • ive passed muddy stools approx 6x today.
  • im on no medication, i just take tylenol or motrin for pain.
  • any other disease no, not that i know of thank god.

Thank you for the information.

As the joints are not red or swollen , it can be simple arthralgia or joint pain , not arthritis.

However you need an examination by a doctor to confirm it.

The joint pain does not seem to be related to dental extraction .

Your muddy colored stool needs a stool test to find out whether there is any infection in the gut or not.

Some infections may cause both diarrhea & joint pain.

You can take Tylenol but better to avoid motrin as it may cause gastric irritation & sometimes bleeding.

I hope this information will be helpful.

 

Please ask if you need any clarification.

 

Best wishes.
