If your wrist, neck, knee, or shoulder hurts and you don’t know why, chances are you’ve turned to Google to learn more about your symptoms. It’s true that knowledge is power, but having the right knowledge is even more powerful. PainSpot will ask you a series of questions — based on how the nation’s leading doctors actually diagnose pain — and suggest possible conditions that you can bring to your health care provider for a more informed discussion and evaluation.START YOUR ASSESSMENT
Doug Roberts, MD
Clinical rheumatologist and creator of PainSpot
I didn't like that feeling of helplessness when there's something going on with your body and you don’t know what it is. I created PainSpot to empower people and give them a reliable, easy way to understand what they might have so they can have a more informed conversation with their doctor.
I was worried for months that my hand pain might be rheumatoid arthritis, but PainSpot convinced me to finally see a doctor about my symptoms. I’m so grateful I went in when I did.
I diagnosed myself as having plantar fasciitis because of my foot pain. But after taking a PainSpot quiz, I realized I needed to ask my doctor about psoriatic arthritis, which I had barely heard of at the time.
I was blaming my neck pain on too much golf and poor sleep. Now I realize it might be a disc issue related to arthritis. So far, the physical therapy seems to be helping a lot.
I was told that my pain was due to fibromyalgia, but that just didn’t seem right. After using PainSpot for my knee and lower back, I’m pushing for a rheumatologist appointment to figure out what’s really happening.
