Arthritis (Osteoarthritis - Rheumatoid Arthritis - Gout)
Natural Homeopathy Is One of The Safest Self-Cure Medicine | See Remedies
Arthritis is a form of joint disorder that usually involves inflammation, stiffness, pain, and swelling of one or more joints. Joints are places where two bones meet, such as your elbow or knee. Over time, a swollen joint can become severely damaged. Some kinds of arthritis can also cause problems in your organs, such as your eyes or skin.
Although arthritis is more common in women and tends to occur more frequently as we get older, it can occur at any age, even in childhood.
Arthritis is one of the most chronic health-condition and a leading cause of disability throughout the world today. It limits everyday activities such as walking, bathing, dressing, and moving around naturally with normal quickness.
Arthritis is second only to heart disease as a cause of work disability.
According to the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), more than 50 million adults and 300,000 children have some type of arthritis in United States of America alone.
Arthritis is not a single disease; it is an informal way of referring to joint pain or joint disease. There are more than 100 forms of arthritis; all of which can cause inflammation and pain in your body joints.
Rheumatoid arthritis and the osteoarthritis are the most common forms of arthritis amongst its several forms. People who suffer from rheumatoid arthritis, which affects the synovial membrane that encapsulates joints, are more likely to get bursitis also.
The osteoarthritis is an inflammation of joints caused by cartilage degeneration and hence is also called Degenerative Arthritis. The condition usually comes with age and mostly affects hips, knees, and the fingers.
Sometimes osteoarthritis follows a joint injury. For instance, a person having his knee badly hurt playing cricket and which apparently has healed completely, might get arthritis in his knee joint.
Rheumatoid arthritis (also called rheumatic arthritis) is a chronic progressive disease causing inflammation in the joints and bones, resulting in painful deformity and immobility, especially in hands, fingers, wrists, feet, and ankles. It happens when the body's own defense system doesn't work properly. It may also affect body's internal organs and its systems. One may feel sick or tired, and may also have a fever.
Another common type of arthritis is gouty arthritis or simply Gout. Painful gouty arthritis is caused by uric-acid-crystal deposits in joint tissues.
Gout is also a chronic progressive disease. The tendency to develop gout and elevated blood uric acid level (hyperuricemia) is often inherited.
Most common of all gout symptoms is nighttime attack of sharp pain in big toe.
Gout and hyperuricemia (condition of abnormally high level of uric acid in the blood) are aggravated by obesity, weight gain, blood pressure, alcohol intake, high fructose in corn syrup found in soft drinks, abnormal kidney function, and certain medications.
Your symptoms are the key for you to know when should you visit your health care provider.
