If you’re only vaguely certain about whether or not you’re suffering from arthritis, or if you’re just dealing with sore muscles, your best bet is to see a professional. With that said, you should definitely look out for any combination of the following symptoms: decreased range of motion, swelling, redness, stiffness, and pain. Definitely don’t sit around hoping for the best—see a specialist, pronto. You might be wondering what the primary causes of arthritis are. Two exist. Osteoarthritis, the first kind, is a condition involving the wearing out of joint cartilage. A large reduction of cartilage eventually results in bones grinding on bones, which greatly restricts movement and causes severe pain. Rheumatoid arthritis (the second kind), occurs when the synovial membrane (the lining of the joint capsule) is attacked by the immune system, resulting in swelling and inflammation. Left untreated, cartilage and the bone within the joint can eventually be destroyed. Age, family history, and sex are all risk factors that increase the likelihood of developing arthritis.
