    1. Asymmetrical aseptic in >1 joint, 2-6/52 post infection elsewhere (gastroenteritis, salmonella, campylobacter), more in HLA B27+ve individuals.
    2. Can’t see, pee, or climb a tree (eye involvement = uveitis, water infections = dysuria/frequency, arthritis).
    3. Mx: NSAIDs, steroid joint injections, self-limiting, maybe chronic requiring DMARDs = refer.
