Use our Arthritis Checkup tool to determine if those aches and pains might be signs of a more serious condition.
More than one in seven visits to a physician is due to aches and pains. Pains that last more than six weeks may be related to rheumatoid arthritis. Take this mini-checkup to see if your chronic (greater than 6 weeks) symptoms may be related to Rheumatoid arthritis or something else.
Based on your symptoms, you've just evaluated your odds of having each of four different ailments -- Rheumatoid arthritis or other rheumatologic disease, bursitis/tendinitis, osteoarthritis, or Lyme disease. Because this tool is not for diagnostic purposes, we recommend that you see a physician and get a definitive diagnosis.
