Would like to start off by explaining exactly what arthritis is. It actually refers to an inflammation of the joints. Such things happen when a body reacts for some types of injuries as well as diseases.
The Inflammation is Normally Paired Together With Stiffening, Soreness and the Swellings
One of the bad things about it is that it may this condition can last for months and even years and it can cause the serious damaging of tissues. Please note however that it does not necessarily affect only the joins as organs can for instance also be affected.
- Something what many people often don't realize is that there are in fact many different kinds of arthritis.
- Some of the more popular include gout and osteoarthritis.
- A lot more information about these can be found down below.
As mentioned before, one of the most common types of arthritis include osteoarthritis, gout and rheumatoid arthritis.
This is a Condition Which can be Very Painful
Our bodies have uric acid and when our bodies are unable to rid itself of this sort of acid then a person can get gout as it leads to joins having large crystals. This often leads to a lot of pain and join swelling.
This is also known as degenerative joint disease and can be often observed with people at an older age and it is in fact the most common kind of arthritis around. At the end of our bones we have something which is called cartilage which is needed so as to protect our bones from in opposition to massaging each other.
This cartilage however often wears away once people get older and this can lead to the swelling of the joints and a lot of pain due to the bones rubbing towards each other.
Gouty Arthritis (Gout) and Uric Acid
Gouty arthritis, or gout, is an extremely painful disease that affects the joints of the elderly, the obese, and the diabetics. Crystals of uric acid are found in these ...
One of the main problems with this illness is that it is the body itself which is causing it. The immune system for reasons known is attacking itself which often leads to serious damage of the actual cartilage and it can even lead to serious health issues involving nerves and other body parts.
