Joint pain can have various causes, ranging in severity from 'minor' to 'very serious'. Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.
Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms. In order to diagnose joint pain, we could:
|Vitamin B6 Need||26%||Unlikely|
|High Histamine||0%||Ruled out|
|Parkinson's Disease||0%||Ruled out|
|Phosphorus Deficiency||0%||Ruled out|
|Male Menopause||0%||Ruled out|
|Low Estrogens||0%||Ruled out|
Do you have pain, stiffness or swelling in any of your joints that is not associated with a past injury or abuse?
Possible responses:→ No / don't know
→ Minor, in one or two joints
→ Minor in several joints, or moderate in one or two
→ Major in one or two joints, or moderate in several
→ Major, in several joints

Most patients with SLE have musculoskeletal symptoms. The typical clinical manifestations are arthralgia, reported by 95% of patients, and arthritis (swollen joints) by 90%. The joints most commonly involved are the index finger, wrist and knees. Lupus is rarely accompanied by actual joint erosion.
Chronic arthritis (swollen and painful joints) could indicate sarcoidosis.
