Frequently Asked Questions

Rheumatologists treat inflammatory and autoimmune musculoskeletal problems that are systemic in origin, which means they affect the entire body while just affecting a specific joint. These rheumatic diseases affect not just the joints but also the skin, neurological system, internal organs, and even the eyes.

 

Rheumatologists use blood tests such as serum rheumatoid factor, positive genetic markers, serum antibodies, and inflammatory chemicals in addition to the patient’s medical history, physical examination, and these indicators. Additionally, imaging tests such as ultrasound, CT/MRI scan, and x-ray are helpful in the diagnosing process.

See a rheumatologist if you experience pain in several joints, have a family history of lupus or rheumatoid arthritis, or if the joint pain is accompanied by fever, exhaustion, and weight loss.

Rheumatologists do not treat fractures or conduct procedures, in contrast to orthopaedics. They also deal with autoimmune diseases’ long-term and persistent symptoms, particularly gout, osteoarthritis, lupus, and persistent back pain.

The rheumatologist will inquire about your symptoms on your initial appointment, including joint pain, fever, fatigue, cramps, back discomfort, etc. The doctor will then examine your lips, skin, and eyes, looking for rashes and symptoms of inflammation. The rheumatologist may request that you undergo certain tests if necessary.

Some common conditions that rheumatologists treat include rheumatoid arthritis, scleroderma, ankylosing spondylitis, systemic lupus erythematosus, osteoarthritis, polymyalgia rheumatic, and Sjogren’s syndrome.

The rheumatologist may carry out the following blood tests:

  • Antibodies against cyclic citrullinated peptides (anti-CCP).
  • C-reactive protein test (CRP).
  • The rate of erythrocyte sedimentation (ESR).
  • The rheumatoid factor
