Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid arthritis, Fibromyalgia, Gout, Systemic lupus erythematosus ....Lots and Lot of arthritis
There are over 100 different types of arthritis that affect the joints and connective tissues of over 40 million Americans. Most times, we do not clearly understand what causes arthritis. It tends to be chronic and usually cannot be cured. But it can be managed with home and alternative treatment. Common types of arthritis include (the first three are the most common)
Osteoarthritis (OA), the most common of all arthritic conditions.
Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) affects the whole body so that RA patients often feel as if they have a virus. The membranes lining joints become inflamed, causing pain, warmth, redness, and swelling. Involved jointstypically wrists, knuckles, knees, and joints of the balls of feetcan become misshapen and misaligned. RA usually begins in middle age, affects joints on both sides of the body, such as both wrists (unlike OA, which can affect just one knee or one hip), and is much more common in women than men.
Fibromyalgia is a condition involving generalized muscle pain, fatigue, and poor sleep. Tender spots (when pressed) on muscles are the hallmark of this condition.
Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis (JRA) is a completely different condition in children with at least three major subtypes that affect single joints, multiple joints, or the entire body. In most children, the disease completely disappears over time.
Gout is a type of arthritis characterized by attacks of sudden, severe pain in body joints. The joint most often affected is at the base of the big toe. Gout can also affect knees, ankles, feet, and (less commonly) joints in the arms. The pain is caused by a build-up of uric acid crystals in the joints.
Systemic lupus erythematosus (lupus, SLE) is an autoimmune disorder. That is, antibodies (that your body produces) attack other parts of your body. A red skin rash may be present; about half of SLE patients have arthritis in their joints, but not to the degree of intensity and disability as RA. Lupus is a very individual condition: some people arent aware they have it, but others have a major illness.
Ankylosing spondylitis is a genetic disease?over half of the people who develop it have a family member with the condition. It is known as attachment arthritis because tendons and muscles that attach to bones become inflamed. The typical site is the bottom of the spine (sacrum) where pelvic bones connect. Low back pain is the hallmark of this condition.
The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons met and announced that results from several published, placebo-controlled clinical trials indicate that glucosamine is an effective treatment for arthritis. American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons 1999 Annual Meeting Scientific Program
