Arthritis: Causes, Symptoms and Effective treatement

Arthritis is not an incurable disease...

Arthritis is a common name for a condition that affects the joints and the cells around them. In addition to the pain in the joints, the symptoms of arthritis are numbness and swelling in the joints. It can affect one or more joints or several joints in the body. More than 100 types of arthritis have been diagnosed so far.

There are many causes of arthritis. Some of these include Osteoarthritis or gout, Inflammatory Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, Psoriatic Arthritis, Septic Arthritis, and Metabolic (Gout). 

 

Common symptoms of Arthritis

Joint pain and stiffness around the joints are the most common symptoms of arthritis. It may be a sudden one or something that will not go away for a long time. Osteoarthritis is most commonly found in weight-bearing joints such as the knees, hips, and spine. Rheumatoid arthritis is found in the joints of the hands (the first two joints of the fingers are the proximal interphalangeal and the metacarpophalangeal), the joints of the ankle and knee, and gout on the big toe, ankle, knee, and elbow.


In the case of osteoarthritis, the pain may be felt after activities such as walking more than usual and climbing stairs. Later this pain can turn into something that lasts all day and even in sleep. Eventually, it will get worse to the point where it interferes with daily activities. In Inflammatory Arthritis, pain and stiffness are more likely to be felt when you wake up in the morning. In addition, this type of pain decreases when walking or working out.

There are two main types of arthritis, painful and non-painful. Painful and painless arthritis can be differentiated by the swelling, itching, and appearance of the joints, as well as the time, time, and order of the joints. Examples of painful arthritis include Infectious Arthritis (Septic Arthritis), Inflammatory Arthritis, and Rheumatoid Arthritis. Knee fatigue is an example of painless arthritis. This is the most common.

In the early stages of arthritis, you may experience fatigue, physical discomfort, and depression. This can be a symptom of the disease. These symptoms may occur more or less frequently. In most patients, the symptoms may not be in the joints but other parts of the body. These include hair loss, loss of vision in one eye, pain, itching, mouth ulcers, genital ulcers, muscle aches, respiratory problems, weight loss, and fever.

 


Some Main Causes of Arthritis

Excess weight, injuries to the joints, weakness of the muscles around the joints, and loss of cartilage due to stress in the joints due to lack of exercise are the main causes of arthritis.

Arthritis can also be caused by changes in the body's immune system. These include Inflammatory Arthritis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, Ankylosing Spondylitis, and Psoriatic  Arthritis. Purine is an important component of DNA in the body. Uric acid is a by-product of the metabolic process of purine and some other foods. Arthritis is caused when uric acid builds up in the joints.

 


Effective treatment for Arthritis

Most people think of arthritis as an incurable disease. Arthritis is a disease that can be cured if detected early. The term "Arthritis" is used to refer to various problems that occur in the joints. The word "Arthritis" itself means inflammation of the joints. Like a fever, arthritis is a symptom.

Confirmation of the disease is the first step towards effective treatment. It is important to see a doctor and find out what type of arthritis you have. To confirm arthritis, doctors consider the patient's symptoms and perform a physical examination followed by a blood test and an X-ray to determine the type of arthritis.

Studies show that giving proper exercise to the affected joints will help in healing the disease in the long run. It is possible to prevent gout from getting worse with treatment. Physiotherapy and workouts can help strengthen muscles and joints. Painkillers are only a temporary solution for arthritis. Losing weight in overweight people can help reduce the symptoms of the disease. The medicines range from corticosteroids to monoclonal antibodies and biological are used for treatment.

 


Daily rules to prevent disease


Avoid placing the pillow below the knee while sleeping. Lie down long while lying down. When you get up in the morning, do simple stretching exercises that stretch and tighten the muscles in your arms and legs while sitting on the bed.

By focusing on diet, arthritis can be prevented to some extent. There are two types of nuts that are best suited to prevent arthritis. The first is almonds and the other is walnuts. Studies from the Arthritis Foundation show that both can help prevent gout.

 

Walnuts:

Walnuts are rich in alpha-linolenic acid and omega 3 fatty acids. Studies show that eating walnuts is good for preventing Rheumatoid Arthritis as it is low in C-reactive protein. Walnuts are not only good for arthritis but also for preventing diabetes and heart disease.

 

 

Almonds:

Almonds are rich in vitamin E and antioxidants. A study by the Arthritis Foundation found that soaking four or five almonds in the water a day can help prevent arthritis. Experts say eating almonds can help prevent foot pain, joint pain, and swelling. Almonds are good not only for arthritis but also for the prevention of gastrointestinal diseases and heart disease.
