What to expect at your first Rheumatology visit:
Many rheumatic diseases are very difficult to diagnose so they may require more than one appointment, A complete physical check up to search for inflammation or joint swelling will be performed along with a full medical and family history. Blood test and X-rays may also be ordered to fully pinpoint a diagnosis. It’s very important to communicate all of your symptoms and ask questions.
