Is knee pain when changing weather a sign of rheumatoid arthritis?
Hello doctor! My knee hurts like an ant bite every time the weather changes, but it doesn't hurt. Did the doctor tell me it was a sign of rheumatoid arthritis? Can you give me advice on treatment and prescriptions? I thank you doctor.

Hello! Rheumatoid arthritis often occurs in women, the joints are symmetrical. Symptoms include hot, red, painful swelling, morning stiffness... Your problem is knee paresthesia, so it's likely not rheumatoid arthritis. However, in order to make the most accurate conclusions, you can go to the hospitals of Vinmec Health System to have a specialist doctor determine the diagnosis and specific treatment direction.
Thank you for sending your question to Vinmec Health System. Wishing you a speedy recovery.
