Currently the questionnaire is only available in Dutch. We are working on implementing other languages ​​in the near future.

Why did we build this tool?

Many people use the internet to search for information on medical symptoms. However, much of the information online is not scientifically proven and it can be difficult to know if your symptoms are due to a rheumatic condition.

The Questionnaire for Rheuma? was developed by European doctors with a lot of knowledge of rheumatic diseases. With this tool we strive to help people to get the most appropriate help for their symptoms faster and be more certain about whether or not they have a form of a rheumatic disease.

How can you contribute?
If you face musculoskeletal problems you can help us by completing the symptom checker. 

In the future, we want to be able to give personalised advice in addition to a personalised overview. To achieve this, we first need to research the condition people develop. With this information, we can further improve the online tool.

I want to participate!

How does it work?

Completing the questions takes 10 minutes each time. In total you will be filling out 4 surveys in a span of 12 months.

  1. Fill in the online questionnaire.  At the end of the questionnaire we will ask your permission to participate in this study.
  2. After 3, 6 and 12 months we will send you an email. In this email we ask you to fill out an additional questionnaire. Some of the questions that  we will ask are:
  • Have you visited a doctor since the last questionnaire? 
  • Have you been referred to a medical specialist?
  • Have you received a diagnosis or medication?
