Why am I suffering from arthritis?
Osteoarthritis is the most prevalent arthritis and is often easy to diagnose. An acute joint injury might trigger it, or it can arise even after a previous injury has healed completely. For instance, suppose you were a college football player who sustained a severe knee injury. You seek treatment, rehabilitate, and reintroduce yourself to the game. Although the injury healed, damage to the cartilage and surrounding muscles occurred, reducing joint support or slightly altering joint motion. As a result, it is still possible for you to get osteoarthritis later in life.
The same is true for occupations that require repetitive motions or overuse. For instance, if you are a carpenter who is required to wield a hammer repeatedly as part of your employment, you may get osteoarthritis in the elbows or hands.
If you are overweight, you may also be at a greater risk of getting osteoarthritis, as your knees and hip joints are put under more strain.
Rheumatoid arthritis is a different kind of arthritis that is less well known. It develops as an autoimmune reaction, which means that your immune system perceives your joints as a threat and launches an attack on them. According to researchers, your medical history, environment, and hormones may all have a role in developing rheumatoid arthritis. Due to the disease’s autoimmune nature, it is normal for it to attack the same joints on both sides of your body. Additionally, females are more likely to develop it than males.
What are the signs and symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis?
According to the Arthritis Foundation, it is currently the largest cause of disability. Arthritis causes pain and inflammation in the joints and can affect one or more joints simultaneously.
Because osteoarthritis is caused by the joint cartilage wearing down due to age or usage, joint pain is the most prevalent symptom, as the cartilage no longer acts as the thick cushion it once did. Without a cushion between the bones, the bones grind together, resulting in an inflammatory response in the joint.
Rheumatoid arthritis, often known as “inflammatory arthritis,” produces joint pain that is exacerbated by prolonged sitting, standing, or inactivity.
Arthritis discomfort can become significantly worse with movement, such as knee bending. With movement, you may detect popping or clicking sounds in the affected joint(s), as well as sensitivity or pain to the touch. Arthritis can also induce discomfort during exercise or work, and the pain may subside after the action is ceased.
