RHEUMATOLOGY CONDITIONS

There are many rheumatologic diseases. These are the common conditions that rheumatologists treat. Most common conditions are related to joint pain, muscle disorders, bones, and various connective tissues.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is the most common form of autoimmune arthritis. It causes joint pain, stiffness, swelling, and difficulty moving joints. Small joints in the hands and feet are the most commonly affects. Rarely, rheumatoid arthritis can affect other organs. This type of arthritis causes the body’s immune system to attack its own joints and tissues. There can be excessive inflammation around the joints in the case of this autoimmune condition.

Gout

Gout is a type of arthritis that causes painful inflammation. It occurs when there is too much uric acid in the body, making it crystalize and deposit into the joints. This often results in severe pain, redness, and joint swelling. The big toe is usually the first joint affected, though other joints can be involved. If you’re suffering from gout and are looking for some relief, don’t hesitate to reach out. Dr. Humayun Beg is an excellent rheumatologist and gout doctor serving all of northeast Houston.
