Known to be one of the most common diseases across the globe, Arthritis literally means Joint Inflammation also known as arthralgia. Arthritis causes a severe pain and burning at the joints where two bones meet. It may occur at one or more parts of the body. Depending on the location of the problem, there are more than 100 types of arthritis that includes rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis etc.
Cartilage is a firm but flexible tissue that is present in joints, respiratory tract, and external ear. When this cartilage undergoes wear and tear, osteoarthritis occurs. When there is inflammation in the joints because of the over-active immune system, rheumatoid arthritis occurs. These two are the most seen arthritis amongst most people, especially in those who are aging.
The causes are not specific to a type of Arthritis but there are some common factors that are known to have observed by experts in the patients that who are affected by all kinds of arthritis. These are not the only, but a few of the major causes.
Unlike some other diseases, Arthritis is not difficult to identify once it affects a person. There will be a constant inflammation or pain in the joints despite applying some preliminary medicine or first aid. If this pain or inflammation persists for a few days without any signs of slowing down, then there is a high probability that it is arthritis. Swelling, redness, stiffness, and tenderness in the joints are some of the common symptoms observed at first.
Some kind of arthritis may not directly show inflammation of joints at first. Instead they affect some internal organs and can show symptoms like high fever, weight loss, nausea, and breathing issues etc.
It is always suggested to consult a doctor immediately when fever along with joint pains occurs so that some preliminary examinations will be conducted. If it is detected in the earlier stages, there is a high chance that it can be cured without it affecting other parts of the body. Homeopathy is highly effective in such cases as it first prevents the disease from spreading to other parts and then starts curing it from the root cause and getting rid of the issue completely.
