Subject: Inflammatory Polyarthropathy

Was at the nurse this morning getting my blood taken and I noticed on my form it said I had inflammatory polyarthropathy. Can anyone tell me what this is?

I think that it basically means you have inflammation in many joints. It a term used by medics when they have no firm diagnosis of a particular type of arthritis.
Hope this helps

Yeh I can agree with what Louise said. Thats what they said I had when I was growing up. Before they could properly diagnose me xx

I assume so. Unless they find another reason for the joints to inflame. All arthritis means is inflamation of the joints. Not very helpful when your diagnosed with it though is it?
