What is Rheumatology?

  • Polymalgia Rheumatica
  • Scleroderma
  • Myositis and Inflammatory myopathy
  • Sarcoidosis
  • Paget’s disease
  • Spondyloarthropathies and antiphospholipid syndrome
Symptoms I should be aware of?

A condition always starts with symptoms. Rheumatoid diseases are no different, the following symptoms are by no means a closed list however do look out for these:

-Joint pain


-Joint stiffness

-Blue or white fingers when exposed to cold

-Hair loss

-Rashes across cheeks

Remember Rheumatoid diseases are autoimmune and inflammatory diseases that causes you immune system to attack the joints, muscles, bones and organs so symptoms do vary, according to the individual.

Why should Rheumatology be important to you?

Should you suffer from a rheumatic disease, this will quickly leave you in a state of immense pain should you not treat it quickly. These conditions are inflammatory diseases and they do leave joint and bones stiff without treatment rendering you immobile as the immune system attacks the muscles over time. For example, a person who has gout, which is a rheumatoid disease, will quickly experience fluid buildup in the joints and this will render them unable to apply pressure on the joint due to intense pain. This is caused through inflammation. This is a painful experience and should be prevented beforehand.

Seeking treatment with Rheumatic diseases are vitally important.
