The word arthritis comes from “arth” which means joint, and “itis” which means inflammation. There are over 100 different types of arthritis that mainly affect the joints. Most types of arthritis affect the elderly but there are some kinds that can affect children as well. It is one of the main causes of disability in the world.
One of the most common symptoms of arthritis is joint pain and it can happen in any of the joints on the body. A for sure sign that you have arthritis would be pain and tenderness, definitely if you are experiencing worsened symptoms when using them, like going for a walk, getting up from sitting, and carrying groceries. Fatigue is another common symptom and most people who have this symptom say that they get a sudden or instant tiredness this can also go along with weakness as well. 
Treatments for arthritis can be different and vary for mild to very serious treatment. A very serious treatment would be surgery in cases were deformity is a result from arthritis. Talking to your doctor to get diagnosed would be the best thing to prevent any serious problems like lose of movement and deformity. Together you and doctor can work to find a solution that is good for you.

A few of the most common kinds of arthritis are Osteoarthritis, Rheumatoid, Psoriatic, Gout, Juvenile, Infectious, Ankvlosing, Fibromyalgia, Polymyalgia Rheumatica, and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus. Osteoarthritis is a degenerative joint disease, it is caused by waer and tear to the joints. Rheumatoid arthritis is when the immune system attacks its own body, mostly joints. Psoriatic arthritis is like rheumatoid except it is autoimmune, if left untreated it can cause crippling. Juvenile arthritis is usually rheumatoid but it refers to all different kinds that affect children. Infectious arthritis is caused by fungi,viruses, or bacteria.

Ankylosing Spondylitis is chronic and can result in fusing the vertebrae called rigid spine. This can affect men and women sometimes between the ages of 16 and 35. Polymayalgia Rheumatica affects people after the age of 50 and causes severe aching I nthe shoulders, hips, and neck. Systemic Lupus Erythematosis is autoimmune and affects the entire system with several internal organs. Firbromyalgia affects soft tissue of the body and caused by a defective transmitter function in the brain.

Gout occurs in people between the ages of 40 and 60 mostly and normally signs are noticed when the big toe becomes suddenly swollen, painful, hot, and red. It seems to be a mostly inherited disease and also is thought to be a hormonal factor involved with it as well. It can affect fingers, toes, wrists, elbows, knees, and ankles. They normally become tender almost to the point where even the touch of the bed sheet seems to be painful. An attack of gout can last for a few weeks and it can be repeated through a number of years.
