Migratory Arthritis

What Causes Migratory Arthritis?

Migratory arthritis can have various causes, just like most other symptoms.  Finding the true cause means ruling out or confirming each possibility – in other words, diagnosis.

Diagnose your symptoms now!
  • understand what's happening to your body
  • let The Analyst™ find what's wrong
  • have a doctor review your case (optional)

Diagnosis is usually a complex process due to the sheer number of possible causes and related symptoms.  In order to diagnose migratory arthritis, we could:

  • Research the topic
  • Find a doctor with the time
  • Use a diagnostic computer system.
The process is the same, whichever method is used.

Step 1: List all Possible Causes

We begin by identifying the disease conditions which have "migratory arthritis" as a symptom.  For example, Lyme disease.

Step 2: Build a Symptom Checklist

We then identify all possible symptoms and risk factors of each possible cause, and check the ones that apply:
recurring depression
unexplained high fevers
numb/burning/tingling extremities
constant fatigue
migraine headaches
frequent 'chills'
Lyme disease
reduced sense of taste
... and so on

Step 3: Rule Out or Confirm each Possible Cause

A differential diagnosis of your symptoms and risk factors finds the likely cause of migratory arthritis.

Arriving at a Correct Diagnosis

The Analyst™ is our online diagnosis tool that learns all about you through a straightforward process of multi-level questioning, providing diagnosis at the end.

If you indicate joint problems, The Analyst™ will ask further questions including this one:
Do you have arthritis that seems to migrate from joint to joint?
Possible responses:
→ No / don't know
→ Probably, but I am not certain
→ Yes, it is a minor problem but easily manageable
→ Yes, it is a significant problem affecting my life
→ Yes, it is a severe, debilitating problem
Based on your response to this question, which may indicate either possible migrating arthritis or migrating arthritis, The Analyst™ will consider possibilities such as Lyme Disease.
