Arthritis-Joint Pains

Arthritis is one of the diseases which we usually associate with old age. A quintessential representation of aged people has them clutching the joints or complaining about joint pain. The disease may affect anyone but is mostly seen in those of the age bracket 40 and 60. Women are also more prone to the disease along with obese people, who also have more chances of being affected.

Rheumatoid arthritis is a disease wherein our immune system attacks the lining of our joints' membranes, called Synovium. It is a rather ironical fact regarding the defensive nature of immune system yet in the complex mechanisms of the human body imperfections are present no doubt.

It is this so called Synovium that is responsible for the smooth functioning of the joints as it creates a liquid which lubricates the joints. This subsequently causes inflammation, which thickens the synovium. This is dangerous as it will destroy cartilage- and the bone in the joint. Our joints lose their alignment and strength as the tendons and ligaments that hold them together stretch and consequently weaken. All this finally causes our joints to pain and swell.

Rheumatoid arthritis can also affect many 'non-joint' parts of the body like Skin, Nerve tissue, Bone marrow, Eyes, Lungs etc. The symptoms are not uniform in nature-Both in severity and frequency, so one needs to be careful as it is usual to ignore most joint pains which often occur in daily functioning of life. So here are the symptoms one needs to watch out for-

This is the marked feature of the disease. Joint swelling, redness and stiffness can happen due to it.

• Morning Stiffness

In mornings or after prolonged period of inactivity the movement of joints may result in pain. This is also not a passing pain but remains for some time.

• Numbness or Tingling

This is caused by the swelling in the arm or the swelling in the any of the joints. The swelling compresses the nerves going into the hands. It essentially pushes against the nerves creating the tingly feeling. The sensation is often worse at night.
