How Do Doctors Tell that You Have Arthritis?
You may experience some minor aches and pains. If the pain persists, you should see a doctor.
To determine if you have arthritis due to joint pains or other symptoms, your doctor will ask for more information. Your medical history, habits, symptoms, and any other pertinent questions will be asked by your doctor. These questions can help pinpoint the root cause of any illness such as arthritis.
These are the questions that a doctor will ask to determine if you have arthritis.
- Which symptoms or signs did you experience? What were your symptoms?
- What are the symptoms of pain in your joints? Are they tender, swollen, or warm?
- Are the symptoms new or did they develop gradually? Are they better or worse after rest?
- These symptoms are most common at what time?
- Are these your first symptoms?
- Is there anyone in the family with arthritis, anxiety, immunity issues, chronic diseases, or anxiety?
- What are you most often doing? Do you have any vices? What is your food intake? How do you sleep?
Imaging tests such as X-rays and nerve tests will be performed by your doctor. To determine the type of arthritis, your doctor will take blood, fluid, or tissue samples.
