Understanding Undifferentiated Arthritis

By September 17, 2013

Follow me on:

If you have been diagnosed with arthritis, there is still more that you and your doctor need to know. To receive appropriate treatment, it is important to identify your type of arthritis. Early on, some patients present vague symptoms or overlapping symptoms. When a definitive diagnosis isn't possible initially, especially in patients with inflammatory types of arthritis, they are classified as having "Undifferentiated Arthritis".

What happens to most patients who have undifferentiated arthritis? Do they go on to get a specific diagnosis? Do some go into remission? Are they usually treated or is treatment delayed? Learn more in What Is Undifferentiated Arthritis?
