Arthritis as a whole is a joint disorder in which the tissues near to the joints and tissues of the joint undergoes wear tear. This damage causes pain and inflammation. If not treated on time the condition becomes terrible and chances for complete recovery become less. Therefore start early with treatment when diagnosed with arthritis.
Since there are more than 100 types of arthritis it is difficult to mention the specific symptom for each but arthritis as a whole has few common symptoms that are generally seen in the majority of patients.
Initially, arthritis reflects in the form of painful joints. Sometimes inflammation too occurs along with the pain. Pain is likely to increase at the time of movement of the affected body part and simultaneously the pain will decrease if the joint is kept steady. Pathological reports have shown that patients suffering from arthritis have an increased level of uric acid in their bodies.
Uric acid as such is a waste product of our body. It is normally present in the blood which is the resultant of the breakdown of purines. When its level increases, it causes crystals to form in the joints and causes gout. This leads to a specific kind of arthritis called gout arthritis. This arthritis generally occurs between the ages of 40 to 50 years.
Every kind of arthritis shows its own symptoms but since all arthritis has to do with the joints therefore if the pain starts and persists on your joints then consult a medical health expert for the exact reasons.
