QUIZ: Could I Have Spondyloarthritis? Identifying Symptoms

Written by Alison Channon
Updated on October 12, 2023

Did you know back pain can be caused by spondyloarthritis?

Do you have back pain that’s lasted longer than three months? If so, you may have chronic back pain, which is a primary symptom of spondyloarthritis.

This quiz includes five multiple choice questions to help you and your physician assess whether your back pain could be chronic inflammatory back pain — the major symptom of spondyloarthritis. There are also two demographic questions.

For each question, select an answer and click the white arrow button to go to the next question. Click the arrow button after the last question to get your quiz results.

After completing the quiz, you’ll have the option to receive your results via email so you can save or print them. Please make sure you click all the way through the “Done” button.

The quiz should take less than one minute to complete

Note: This questionnaire is for informational or background purposes only. It should not be used as a replacement for seeking medical advice or care from your doctor. This questionnaire was adapted from the Assessment of SpondyloArthritis international Society (ASAS) criteria for classification of inflammatory back pain.1 Although inflammatory back pain is a strong indicator of spondyloarthritis, including ankylosing spondylitis, there are other signs, symptoms, and health conditions to consider. Consult your doctor for medical information about your condition and advice on how to manage it.
