Hi,
How are you? Diagnosis of rheumatic fever is difficult since the disease has different forms.  Rheumatic fever is an inflammatory disease that may develop after an infection with Streptococcus bacteria  and can affect the heart, joints, skin, and brain. Diagnostic tests may include: blood test for recurrent strep infection (such as an ASO test), complete blood count,  Electrocardiogram and sedimentation rate (ESR). Several major and minor criteria have been developed to help standardize rheumatic fever diagnosis. Meeting these criteria, as well as having evidence of a recent streptococcal infection, can help confirm that you have rheumatic fever. Check with your doctor for proper evaluation and management. Direct clinical examiantion is important. Take care and do keep us posted.
