Hello Robert,

I'm Dr Chaithanya attending you.

Yes, this can be associated with Rheumatic conditions

I can say very close association.

You need to consult a Rheumatologist to get the specific tests and rule out any rheumatological conditions

Request to leave a positive rating. Any bonus appreciated.

I feel better already! Thank you.

ElanorTracy, CA

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.

JulieLockesburg, AR

You have been more help than you know. I seriously don't know what my sisters situation would be today if you had not gone above and beyond just answering my questions.
