Why does a joint pain or swelling need immediate attention?

While pain relief is the immediate and utmost concern of every patient with this condition, Rheumatic diseases require early evaluation to understand its effects on the internal organs. This is critical to fight the condition and survive its long–term complications.

When should you consult a Rheumatologist ?

  • Multiple joint pains
  • Any joint pain for more than 12 weeks
  • Early morning stiffness
  • Lower backache
  • Generalized body pain
  • Neck stiffness
  • Excessive fatigue
  • Photosensitivity-rashes appearing in sun exposed areas
  • Oral ulcers
  • Excessive hair loss
  • Dryness of mouth/eyes
  • Recurrent redness of eyes

Myth

Rheumatoid Arthritis is a disease that affects mostly the elderly

Fact

Although the incidence (the number of new cases in a given year) of RA increases in men and women until about the eighth decade of life, RA is not a disease of old age.1 For instance, the incidence tends to peak earlier for women than men, at about ages 55 to 64 years for women, compared with 75 to 84 years for men. However, RA can occur at any age and is often diagnosed in the prime of life and even in children younger than 16 years of age.
