Pain in multiple joints (polyarthralgia) that disappears with physical activity should be checked by a rheumatologist. Several diagnostic procedures should be done: standard blood analyses (blood count, sedimentation…), rheum factor, ANA, X-ray image of the painful joints etc. in order to diagnose the condition.
