I apologize that I took so long to respond to your query. This is quite a rare disease and it seems as if the only effective treatment is cyclical treatment with antibiotics. They think that this could be caused by overgrowth of bacterial flora in the bowel with subsequent development of a circulating immune complex disease. It may be worth your while to get an opinion from a rheumatologist ( they specialize in immune diseases) and it may help to take Probiotics three times a day long term. Please let me know what the rheumatologist says?
