Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis.
It is caused by the loss of cartilage that covers joint bones, which happens as we age. But the group Foxhall Internists says rheumatoid arthritis can cause a person's joints to become inflamed, creating stiffness, fatigue, pain, swelling and limited movement.
Most other forms of arthritis fall under the category of inflammatory arthritis, and those can strike at any age, particularly young women. But there are treatments for inflammatory arthritis than can help relieve pain. Doctors have discovered advances in the field of treatment of these conditions that would put the disease in remission, in order for patients not to experience symptoms.
