A brief intro to Rheumatologists

Who is a rheumatologist?

Internists or medical specialists who deal with the diagnosis and treatment of musculoskeletal disorders, as well as, autoimmune rheumatic diseases are called rheumatologists (ریمیٹولوجسٹ). Their expertise is related to treating the autoimmune and inflammatory disorders of the joints and muscles that end up causing stiffness and deformity in the bones.

ایک ریموٹولوجسٹ کون ہوتا ہے؟

عارضی ماہرین یا طبی ماہرین جو پٹھوں کے عوارض کی تشخیص اور علاج کے ساتھ ساتھ آٹومیمون ریمیٹک بیماریوں کے معاملات سے نمٹتے ہیں انھیں ریمیٹولوجسٹ کہتے ہیں۔ ان کی مہارت کا تعلق جوڑوں اور پٹھوں کی خود کار قوت اور سوزش کی بیماریوں کے علاج سے ہے جو ہڈیوں میں سختی اور عیب پیدا کرتے ہیں۔

When should you see a rheumatologist?

Rheumatic diseases are mostly genetic in origin. Many people, especially women, are prone to these autoimmune disorders. You should see a rheumatologist (ریمیٹولوجسٹ) when you are experiencing muscle and joint pain that is not resolving. This could imply that additional evaluation is needed and there could be concern for autoimmune disorder especially if someone in your family has already been diagnosed with rheumatic diseases.

Chronic inflammation and improper treatment can result in joint damage that can otherwise be reversed with timely management. While medical specialists can miss the early signs of rheumatic diseases, rheumatologists (ریمیٹولوجسٹ) are specially trained to identify these autoimmune disorders—most of which respond best to treatment early on in the disease. Thus, do not delay in getting evaluated and seeking a proper diagnosis.

آپ کو ایک ریموٹولوجسٹ سے کب ملاقات کرنی چاہئے؟

ریمیٹک امراض زیادہ تر جینیاتی ہوتے ہیں۔ بہت سے لوگ ، خاص طور پر خواتین ، خود بخود ان بیماریوں کا شکار ہیں۔ جب آپ کو پٹھوں اور جوڑوں کا درد ہو رہا ہے جو حل نہیں ہوتا ہے تو آپ کو ریمیٹولوجسٹ سے رابطہ کرنا چاہئے۔ اس کا مطلب یہ ہوسکتا ہے کہ اضافی تشخیص کی ضرورت ہے اور خود آٹو امیون خرابی کی شکایت ہوسکتی ہے خاص طور پر اگر آپ کے گھر والوں میں پہلے ہی ریمیٹک بیماریوں کی تشخیص ہوچکی ہے۔

دائمی سوزش اور غلط علاج کے نتیجے میں مشترکہ نقصان ہوسکتا ہے جو بصورت دیگر بروقت انتظام کے ساتھ ٹھیک کی جاسکتی ہے۔ اگرچہ طبی ماہرین ریموٹائڈ سے متعلق امراض کی ابتدائی علامات کو نظر انداز کر سکتے ہیں ، لیکن ان آٹو امیون امراض کی شناخت کے لئے ریمیٹولوجسٹ خاص طور پر تربیت یافتہ ہیں - جن میں سے بیشتر اس مرض کے ابتدائی علاج کا بہترین جواب دیتے ہیں۔ اس طرح ، تشخیص کرنے اور مناسب تشخیص کے حصول میں تاخیر نہیں کرنی چاہئے۔

What are the main areas of concern of a rheumatologist?

Rheumatologists (ریمیٹولوجسٹ) deal with over a hundred types of rheumatic diseases. Many of these diseases are ever-changing and evolving, and multiple sessions as well as investigations may be needed to make a conclusive diagnosis.

Rheumatologists (ریمیٹولوجسٹ) are like medical detectives—working on diseases that no one else has figured out. In fact, a lot of rare and uncommon illnesses are the forte of a rheumatologist which is why rheumatologists have to do a lot of diagnostic work-up.

The main rheumatic diseases they treat most often include: osteoarthritis, vasculitis, myositis, fibromyalgia, Lyme disease, gout, back pain, musculoskeletal pain diseases, rheumatoid arthritis, lupus, scleroderma and antiphospholipid syndrome.

Rheumatologists (ریمیٹولوجسٹ) work with other health care providers to act as a consultant, advising them about specific treatment plans and diagnoses. Also, they rely on skilled professionals like occupational therapists, physical therapists, and psychologists for complete management of their patient’s conditions. Patients with chronic autoimmune disorders as well as their families can need additional help from a psychologist or a psychiatrist to cope with the changes that illness brings into their life.

What are the most common rheumatic disorders in Pakistan?

The worldwide prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis and other autoimmune diseases are higher in developed regions of the world like Europe and North America. By all accounts, developing countries have a lower incidence than developed countries. However, data compiled for both India and Pakistan, with their shared ethnicity, suggests that the prevalence of rheumatoid arthritis here is comparable to that in developed countries. While there are inherent differences like lab findings and clinical features, the other features are quite similar to those presented in the western world.

According to the Clinical Lead and Consultant for Rheumatology, Dr. Terence Gibson, at Guy’s and St Thomas’ NHS Foundation Trust in London, UK, about 1 percent of the population in Pakistan has rheumatoid arthritis. Other common disorders of rheumatic origin include lupus, gout, chronic back pain, osteoarthritis of the knee, and antiphospholipid syndrome.

How to become a rheumatologist in Pakistan?

Following the five years of graduation in medicine and surgery (MBBS), and the mandatory house-job, rheumatologists (ریمیٹولوجسٹ) enroll in a four-year residency program in medicine. This is followed by a further two years of training in rheumatology programs and post-graduation. Continual practice and medical education credits are important for a rheumatologist.

پاکستان میں ایک ریموٹولوجسٹ کیسے بنا جا سکتا ہے؟

میڈیسن اینڈ سرجری (ایم بی بی ایس) میں گریجویشن کے پانچ سال اور لازمی ہائوس جاب کے بعد ، ریمیٹولوجسٹ طب میں چار سالہ رہائشی پروگرام میں داخلہ لیتے ہیں۔ اس کے بعد ریمیٹولوجی پروگراموں اور پوسٹ گریجویشن میں مزید دو سالوں کی تربیت حاصل کی جاتی ہے۔ رمیومولوجسٹ کے لئے مستقل مشق اور میڈیکل ایجوکیشن کے کریڈٹ اہم ہیں۔

What does a Rheumatologist do?

A rheumatologist (ریمیٹولوجسٹ) treats inflammatory and autoimmune disorders of the musculoskeletal system that are systemic in nature—which means that they impact the whole of the body despite affecting a particular joint. These rheumatic disorders impact the skin, nervous system, internal organs, and even the eyes.

In comparison to orthopedics, rheumatologists (ریمیٹولوجسٹ) do not perform surgeries and do not reduce fractures. Additionally, they deal with the chronic and long-term effects of autoimmune disorders especially gout, osteoarthritis, lupus, and chronic back pain.

Rheumatologists rely on the patient's history, physical examination as well as blood tests like serum rheumatoid factor, positive genetic markers, serum antibodies and inflammatory compounds. Additionally, imaging tests prove useful in diagnosis including an x-ray, CT/MRI scan and ultrasound.

ایک ریموٹولوجسٹ کیا کرتا ہے؟

ایک ریموٹولوجسٹ اعصابی نظام کی سوزش اور آٹو امیون عوارض کا علاج کرتا ہے جو سسٹیمک فطرت کے ہوتے ہیں۔ اس کا مطلب یہ ہے کہ وہ کسی خاص جوڑوں کو متاثر کرنے کے ساتھ ساتھ پورے جسم پر اثر ڈالتا ہے۔ یہ رمیٹک عوارض جلد ، اعصابی نظام ، اندرونی اعضاء اور یہاں تک کہ آنکھیں بھی متاثر کرتے ہیں

رتھوپیڈکس کے مقابلے میں ، ریموٹولوجسٹ سرجری نہیں کرتے ہیں اور فریکچر کو ٹھیک نہیں کرتے ہیں۔ مزید برآں، وہ آٹو ایمون ڈس آرڈرز کے دائمی اور طویل مدتی اثرات سے نمٹتے ہیں خاص طور پر گاؤٹ، آسٹیو آرتھرائٹس، لوپس اور دائمی کمر درد۔

ریومیٹالوجسٹ مریض کی ہسٹری، جسمانی معائنہ کے ساتھ ساتھ خون کے ٹیسٹ جیسے سیرم ریومیٹائیڈ فیکٹر، مثبت جینیٹک مارکرز، سیرم اینٹی باڈیز اور سوزش کے مرکبات پر انحصار کرتے ہیں۔ مزید برآں، امیجنگ ٹیسٹ تشخیص میں مفید ثابت ہوتے ہیں جن میں ایکسرے، سی ٹی ایم آر آئی اسکین اور الٹراساؤنڈ شامل ہیں۔
