Sometimes Male Organ Pain May Suggest Reiter’s Syndrome

Sometimes Male Organ Pain May Suggest
Reiter’s Syndrome
The body is a marvelous creation, and one the complexity of which is often
taken for granted. One reason that physicians may have difficulty initially
diagnosing a medical problem is because one symptom can be common to so
many different conditions – and often the symptom doesn’t directly
correspond to the characteristics of the condition. That’s why sometimes a
male organ health issue, such as simple male organ pain, can indicate a
problem seemingly unrelated to male organ health. This is essentially the
case with male organ pain as a possible prognosticator of a condition known
as Reiter’s syndrome.
Reiter’s syndrome
More commonly known as reactive arthritis, Reiter’s syndrome causes
painful swelling in the joints, usually the knees and ankles, although other
joints may also be affected. In addition, there may also be an infection of the
eyes that accompanies Reiter’s syndrome.
Often, however, before the joint pain starts and continuing throughout the
time the condition is noticeable, a man with Reiter’s syndrome will
experience male organ pain. Indeed, some think that an infection in the
member, or in some other part of the body, is what is ultimately responsible
for the painful arthritic characteristics. (The fact that the arthritis occurs in
reaction to an infection not located in the joints is why it is sometimes
referred to as reactive arthritis.) In most cases, the male organ pain is not
ongoing but sporadic, occurring usually during urination and/or seed release.
Beyond the male organ pain, the prostate is also sometimes affected. This
can in turn bring about chills and fever in some men. Finally, there can
sometimes be skin rashes that eventually develop, sometimes occurring on
the head of the member.
But what causes the infection that ultimately brings about joint pain and
swelling? There can be a number of causes. Frequently, Reiter’s syndrome
has been associated with salmonella, or more accurately, with the bacteria
that causes salmonella. Other bacteria that cause other forms of food
poisoning also have been implicated in the male organ pain that can precede
Reiter’s syndrome.
There also can be a sensual component to the infection. Chlamydia, a social
disease, can sometimes cause the infection, and this again can sometimes
lead to cases of the arthritic syndrome. Men with HIV are also more prone to
developing Reiter’s.
But there appears to be a strong genetic component as well. About fourfifths of cases of Reiter’s syndrome occur in people with a specific genetic
type (known as HLA-B27). The genetic type does not cause the condition,
but it does make it much more likely that someone who is exposed to the
bacteria associated with Reiter’s will develop the condition.
So how is Reiter’s syndrome treated? Assuming that the infection that
provoked the condition still persists, it is likely that the doctor will prescribe
antibiotic treatment. The arthritic issues are likely to be dealt with via a
number of possible options, including non-steroidal anti-inflammatory
medications, corticosteroids, topical steroids (for skin conditions), and/or
rheumatoid arthritis medications. If the arthritis has been long lasting or
severe, then physical therapy may be needed to get the body back into
proper shape.
In terms of prevention, wearing latex protection to help prevent the spread of
chlamydia and storing food at appropriate temperatures and cooking it
thoroughly can help reduce the risk of infection that can lead to Reiter’s
Male organ pain from Reiter’s syndrome might be more easily managed if
male organ health is maintained at a high level. This can be aided by the
daily application of a superior male organ health oil (health professionals
recommend Man 1 Man Oil, which is clinically proven mild and safe for
skin). The best oils are those that include the full range of necessary
vitamins, including A, B5, C, D, and E. In addition, look for an oil with Larginine, an amino acid that helps produce nitric oxide. This in turn allows
male organ blood vessels to expand and remain open when needed.
