How Do You Feel?

In order to find a treatment that may work for you and your lifestyle, your doctor needs to understand how you’re feeling. Use our Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptom Tracker to assess your symptoms. Then, you can share your results with your doctor to help explain how arthritis may be holding you back from the things you used to do.

This tracker is not intended as a tool for the self-diagnosis or treatment of any medical condition, and should not replace discussions with a healthcare provider. Please talk to your doctor about any symptoms you may be experiencing.
