 Arthritis (Rheumatoid Arthritis, Psoriatic Arthritis, arthritis symptoms)

 Introduction to arthritis

The condition of arthritis in India is similar to that of developed countries. Around 18 crores or 15% of the population is suffering from diseases like arthritis. There have indeed been many reforms in the world of medicine. The average age is increased. The risk of infectious diseases has also decreased, but non-communicable diseases have emerged on a large scale. Arthritis is also one of these. The situation of autoimmune diseases is getting serious due to the changes in lifestyle, environment, and climate.

         Arthritis is a chronic disease, it cannot be cured completely. But good treatment exists. Symptoms, pain, and inflammation of the disease can be controlled through many medicines.

         The sooner the disease is diagnosed, the better the treatment. If it is a case of arthritis, see a specialist. Due to the lack of good rheumatologists and lack of information in people, most cases of Rheumatoid Arthritis are being seen by orthopedic specialists. In cases of RA, wherever possible, see a rheumatologist. Do not take any tests for confirmation of arthritis. Also, do not leave the treatment in between.

Symptoms of arthritis: In simple words, arthritis is a problem of inflammation or inflammation in the joints. There is joint pain, swelling, and redness in it. There is pain and stiffness in the joints and muscles when waking up in the morning, which starts to heal within half an hour of being active. These are symptoms of arthritis. In inflammatory arthritis, this effect can also persist for a long time.

Inflammatory Arthritis and Non-Inflammatory 

Some arthritis has symptoms of inflammation and pain, called inflammatory arthritis, such as rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and ankylosing spondylitis. The wear and tear of joints and cartilage or degeneration of joints with aging are called degenerative arthritis, such as osteoarthritis. It gives relief by relaxing the joints. In inflammatory arthritis, it is necessary to keep the joints active.

          Symptoms of arthritis also depend on the type of arthritis. Lupus Arthritis patients have symptoms like fever, mouth ulcer, hair fall, skin rashes in the sun. Symptoms like muscle weakness, back pain, red eyes, increase in breath and cough also appear.

          The main reason for their increasing number of cases among the youth is the wrong way to work late on the computer, sitting in the same position, getting up and lying down. In show grain syndrome, dryness occurs in the eyes and mouth, affecting the teeth. Some patients have deformities in their joints or the joints stop working. In degenerative arthritis, the sound often comes from the joints or sensation under the skin when getting up or moving.

Arthritis screening and treatment 

Arthritis is not a fatal disease, so carelessness is taken in its treatment. Many times patients take painkillers on their own. Leave the treatment in the middle or resort to chandeliers. Due to these reasons, it is late in getting the right treatment.

         To identify arthritis, we check for rheumatoid factor, anti-CCP, ANA, etc. in the blood. These tests are done to confirm autoimmune diseases. The rheumatoid factor is also found positive in healthy people. One percent of such cases are found in young people and up to 5 percent in people above 70 years of age. The severity and condition of rheumatoid arthritis are known by the anti-CCP test. Arthritis is confirmed through both tests and physical examination. There is no direct cure for osteoarthritis. But there are disease-modifying anti-rheumatoid drugs for disease-modifying anti-rheumatoid for rheumatoid arthritis. There are also certain biological drugs that affect the protein molecules associated with the immune system.

                Pain relievers such as paracetamol and opioids are effective in reducing pain. Corticosteroids drugs reduce inflammation and pain. These are given both by drugs and vaccines. When the joints start to get crooked, which cannot be corrected in other ways, the help of surgery and joint replacement is taken. Exercise and physiotherapy also provide relief in pain.

               The final thing is that this problem is serious, it requires lifelong treatment and care. So do not get discouraged and keep the environment clean.
