Pain is a common symptom of innumerable diseases. But here we will be talking of pain in Arthritis. Arthritis is derived from two words “Arthro” means joint and “itis” means inflammation. Hence arthritis is inflammation of the joint. A single joint is made-up of many components. A joint (whichever it may be) includes- 2 or multiple bones, muscles, ligaments, synovial fluid, blood vessels, and nerves. Any deviation or problem in any of these components can lead to pain in the joint. There are different types of arthritis. The most common form of arthritis is osteoarthritis. Other common rheumatic conditions related to arthritis include Gout, Rheumatoid arthritis (RA), Septic arthritis, and Psoriatic arthritis.
Arthritis is divided into different groups for easy classification as –
Inflammatory Arthritis – Inflammatory arthritis can affect several joints, and the inflammation can damage the surface of the joints and also the underlying bone. Examples of inflammatory arthritis include Ankylosing spondylitis, RA, Arthritis associated with colitis or psoriasis.
Degenerative or mechanical arthritis – Degenerative or mechanical arthritis refers to a group of conditions that mainly involve damage to the cartilage that covers the ends of the bones. Osteoarthritis, Degenerative Disc Disease, etc. are some of the examples.
Infectious arthritis/ Septic arthritis – A bacterium, virus, or fungus that enters a joint can sometimes cause inflammation. This arthritis should be treated quickly otherwise it may result in irreversible damage to the affected joint.
Metabolic arthritis – This arthritis has disturbed uric acid metabolism in which uric acid builds up and forms needle-like crystals in the joints, resulting in sudden spikes of extreme joint pain. Example- Gout.
Arthritis of an auto-immune disease – This type of arthritis occurs when the body’s immune system attacks the tissues of the body, specifically connective tissue, leading to joint inflammation, pain, and degeneration of the joint tissue. Example: RA, SLE, Sjogren’s syndrome.
Arthritis is predominantly a disease of the elderly, but children can also be affected by the disease. Arthritis is more common in women than in men. There is no single cause of all types of arthritis. The causes vary according to the type of arthritis whereas possible causes include: injury- leading to degenerative arthritis, abnormal metabolism- leading to gout and pseudo gout, inheritance- such as in osteoarthritis, immune system dysfunction- as in RA and SLE. Some people may be genetically more likely to develop certain arthritic conditions. Additional factors, such as infection, smoking, and physically demanding occupations, can interact with genes to further increase the risk of arthritis. Gout is one type of arthritis that is closely linked to diet, as it is caused by elevated levels of uric acid which can be a result of a diet high in purines.
The symptoms of arthritis appear and how they appear to vary widely, depending on the type. Pain, which can vary in severity, is a common symptom in virtually all types of arthritis. Other symptoms include swelling, joint stiffness, tenderness, and difficulty moving the affected joints. Some forms of autoimmune arthritis, such as Rheumatoid Arthritis (RA) and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE), can affect multiple organs and cause widespread symptoms. Arthritis in childhood can cause permanent damage to joints; this is called Juvenile idiopathic arthritis (JIA).
Treatment for these joint pains taken is mostly the painkillers. Painkillers acts physiologically and decreases the pain temporarily within few hours. The treatment is restricted to pain whatever may be the cause for it. Whatever may be the diagnosis- may be the osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or gout the conventional medicine does have only the medicines which relieves the pain for sometime but the underlying pathology is the same. Though the patient takes the painkillers daily, they are not able to do their daily chores normally.
As for example if a person is having knee pains due to osteoarthritis of knee joint and is prescribed painkiller and some calcium supplements. They take the tablets regularly to avoid pain but the degeneration of knee is in progress, because there is no treatment of the cause. And though the patient is taking the so-called treatment with lots of side-effects in it, the condition worsens with time and after few years they need to think for the knee replacement.
