What is it and how is it diagnosed?

We all have general musculoskeletal pains from time to time which last for just a few days. But, when pain in your joints, muscles, neck, back and bones is severe and persistent for more than a few days, you should see your medical provider. Rheumatic diseases are difficult to identify in their early stages and you can have everyday symptoms which actually are related to much more complex conditions. Rheumatologists are experts in this area and are trained to evaluate all of your symptoms to diagnose and treat your condition.They know it is imperative to find the correct diagnosis as rapidly as possible to begin appropriate treatment because many of these disorders respond best to treatment in the early stages of disease.
