Benefits of undergoing an X-ray include:
Depending on the severity of your rheumatoid condition, it is recommended to have regular check-ups with your doctor. Generally, these should be scheduled every 1-3 months, but this recommendation may differ depending on the doctor's assessment of individual cases.
In addition, if you notice any changes in your symptoms between check-ups, it is always best to contact your doctor immediately for further evaluation.
