Should you ask your doctor for synovial fluid analysis if you have chronic joint problems with multiple surgeries?
Likely not useful..: Joint fluid analysis is of limited usefulness unless suspected having infection and/or gout, and maybe some rare rheumatologic conditions. Beyond these few conditions, there isn't much else that needs synovial fluid analysis. If you have had multiple joint surgeries, especially in same joint, I would expect that this is already done. Consult your doc. Good luck. ...Read more

Early RA: Early stages of Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) may demonstrate "demineralization" of joints due to inflammation. The CCP test is fairly specific for the diagnosis of RA, even if the "RA" factor is (-). Alkpo4 is found in liver/bones and with joint inflammation may be elevated. The best time to seek help to control RA is during the first 6-12 months after the onset of joint symptoms. ...Read more
