Question: What causes joint pain, eye burning and skin redness/burning

 Paul9871 - Sat Nov 07, 2009 11:43 pm

My bother has terrible joint pain that flares up at random followed by stinging/burning eyes and his skin also feels like its buring. His pain is all over. He had Mono several years ago and has never been the same. His pain condition has never been diagnosed despite several doctors. He has already been tested for neurological diseases like MS and MD and he doesn't have either. Any information is helpful. Thank you.
