Its symptoms are stiffness in the joints (particularly in the morning), swelling and pain in multiple joints, fatigue, issues in other organs like the lungs and eyes, and lumps.

Rheumatologists treat a variety of rheumatic disorders which include osteoarthritis, lupus, rheumatoid arthritis (RA), scleroderma, gout, ankylosing spondylitis, osteoporosis, infectious arthritis, polymyalgia rheumatic, and juvenile idiopathic arthritis.

Many people get confused on whether they should see a rheumatologist or orthopaedist as both of them treat disorders related to joints, bones, and muscles. However, they are different in terms of the way they treat these disorders. A rheumatologist provides non-surgical treatment options like medications to treat joint disorders. On the other hand, an orthopaedist specialises in the surgical treatment of such disorders and managing fractures.
