CMC Rheumatology provides care for those suffering from rheumatic diseases. We diagnose, assess, and treat common conditions such as gout, a variety of autoimmune diseases, chronic joint pain, multiple forms of arthritis, tendonitis, chronic back pain, lupus and much more.
When muscle and joint pain won't go away, it might be time to visit CMC Rheumatology.
Are your issues continually getting worse? Will they return after a short reprieve? Do they just never quite go away? Don't just ignore the pain. It's important to get your symptoms checked sooner than later to prevent joint damage and more complicated issues.
Rheumatic diseases can have a significant impact on your quality of life. If untreated, daily activities like walking, cooking, climbing stairs, and even preparing for your day can become the most difficult of tasks. These diseases can also have a profound effect on your work because of their disabling symptoms.
Ditch the pain and start living again!
CMC Rheumatology is ready to help you live a happier and healthier life. We offer a variety of treatments to build a personalized care plan for you and your unique needs. You will play an important part in your own care as we educate you on your disease, help you lead a healthier lifestyle, and give you the tools to manage your symptoms at home.
My first appointment
Know your symptoms The better you can explain your own symptoms and the information you provide will help your doctor diagnose your condition. Bring notes with you that provide details like:
- The type of pain you are feeling (throbbing, stabbing)
- The location of your pain (muscles, hands, joints)
- When did your symptoms start? Have they stopped?
- How long have you had your symptoms
- Are there times of the day your pain is better or worse
- Is there anything that seems to contribute or correlate with your pain? (types of physical activity, certain foods, stress)
- Are you experiencing any other symptoms you think might be connected to your joint or muscle pain?
Take notes and bring your questions Bring a notebook or journal with you to document your conversation with your doctor and their recommendations. Your doctor will be discussing your condition, treatment plan, and giving you other advice. This can be a little overwhelming so take good notes and ask lots of questions to make sure you will go home with the information you need to get a positive start on your path to treatment.
