Arthritis means inflammation of joints. There are over 100 forms of arthritis.
The most common is osteoarthritis (degenerative joint disease), caused by prior trauma to or infection of the joint (wear and tear). It usually occurs in older people.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease that can affect anyone at any age. It affects not only the joints of the fingers, wrists, hips, knees, and feet, but also the muscles, tendons and other tissues of the body. Other forms of arthritis include psoriatic arthritis, and autoimmune diseases in which the body attacks itself. Septic arthritis is caused by joint infection.
The major complaint by individuals who have arthritis is pain. Pain is often a constant and daily feature of the disease. The pain may be in the back, neck, hip, or any other joints. The pain is caused by inflammation around the joint, damage to the joint from disease, bone damage and distention, daily wear and tear of the joint, and muscle strain and fatigue from forced movement against stiff, painful joints. Severe pain in joints, particularly toes, may be also caused by gout.
