Arthritis is a very painful condition that can cripple the sufferer. There are many kinds of arthritis, and with so much information to come to grips with on the subject, it can leave people bewildered.

Christine Jeffries is doing her part to correct that situation. She writes in a clear and easily understood way about all aspects of this crippling disease. Christine suggests a number of questions you can ask your doctor if you are suffering from arthritis and are looking for a proper diagnosis and treatment plan. She also kindly supplies some answers to help you in your search for information.

"Arthritis is an inflammatory disorder in which your autoimmune system attacks the tissue around joints causing deterioration. There are over 100 different types of arthritis; rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis are the most common. Symptoms of arthritis include joint swelling, joint tenderness, pain and/or stiffness of the joint(s) and limited range of motion in one or more joints."
