Arthritis is a common condition that causes pain and inflammation in a joint. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis, all of which have different causes and treatment methods.
Arthritis is most commonly seen in adults over the age of 65 but it can also develop in children and teens. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, arthritis is more common in women than men and in those that are overweight
Types of arthritis:
Inflammatory arthritis - such as rheumatoid arthritis, ankylosing spondylitis, gout

Inflammation may also be associated with general "flu"-like symptoms including:
· Fatigue/loss of energy

Degenerative or mechanical arthritis:
Degenerative Joint Disease is a non-infectious, progressive disorder of the weight bearing joints. The normal articular joint cartilage is smooth, white and translucent. It is composed of cartilage cells imbedded in a sponge-like middle, or matrix, made of collagen, protein polysaccharides and water. With early, primary degenerative arthritis, the cartilage becomes yellow and opaque with localized areas of softening and roughening of the surfaces.
The main symptom is pain, causing loss of ability and often stiffness. "Pain" is generally described as a sharp ache or a burning sensation in the associated muscles and tendons. Degenerative Joint can cause a crackling noise when the affected joint is moved or touched and people may experience muscle spasms and contractions in the tendons. Occasionally, the joints may also be filled with fluid. Some people report increased pain associated with cold temperature, high humidity, and/or a drop in barometric pressure, but studies have had mixed results.
