Arthritis literally means inflammation of the joints – it leads to pain and stiffness in the joints. There are various types of arthritis, including osteoarthritis (the most common reason for age-related joint pain worldwide) and rheumatoid arthritis (an autoimmune condition that can affect people at any age).
The most common types of arthritis in India are osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and gout. In the spirit of raising awareness on World Arthritis Day, here’s what you need to know about these three conditions:
Age of onset: 50 – 60 years
Cause: Wear and tear of joints over time can lead to changes in the structure and function of the whole joint.
Symptoms: Joint pain after physical activity such as getting up from a chair, transient stiffness in the morning or after rest, reduced range of motion, tenderness in the joints and bony swelling.
• Rheumatoid arthritis:
Age of onset: 30-60 years
Cause: It is an autoimmune disease in which the body’s own immune system attacks the body’s joints. It is a progressive disease that affects the articular (the connection between the joints) and extra-articular (surrounding the joints like disks) structures resulting in pain, disability and even mortality.
Symptoms: Vague pain with the gradual appearance of swelling or tenderness in the joints, prolonged periods of morning stiffness with arthralgia (joint pain), and pain in a limited number of joints.
Gout is a form of inflammatory arthritis that develops in some people who have high levels of uric acid in the blood. Uric acid is a product of the breakdown of urine.
