Arthritis means joint disease or joint pain and there are over a hundred different types and conditions linked to it. There are many variations. Anyone can have it at any age, any race and any gender, although it seems to be a little more common in women and is also more common as people age.
Arthritis can cause swelling and stiffness in the joints as well as pain and can limit movement, some people can suffer constantly and others may find that symptoms come and go. Pain levels can vary, some have severely painful experiences, sometimes you can experience quite mild pain or anything in between, and the pain levels of arthritis can be persistent for long and shorter periods of time, they may increase or decrease in severity.
For some, arthritis is so severe, it can be debilitating and prevent one from carrying out everyday tasks such as being able to hold a saucepan or walk up a flight of stairs, it can cause joints to become deformed on the outside of the body and usually any damage is diagnosed with an x-ray.
