Arthritis is the breakdown of tissue inside the joints. It can cause pain, inflammation, restricted movement of the area and an apparent weakness within the joints affected. Arthritis is very common in the UK, affecting around 10 million people of all ages.

There are two main types of Arthritis: Osteoarthritis and Rheumatoid Arthritis. When it comes to older people, the most common type of arthritis is osteoarthritis. This is caused by wear and tear; the older we are the more we have used our joints through our lifetimes. Around eight million people in the UK are affected by this type of arthritis.

Symptoms of arthritis include:

Joint pain, tenderness and stiffness.
Restricted movement of joints.
Inflammation in and around the joints.

Unfortunately, there is currently no cure for the illness but there are treatments available such as painkillers and corticosteroids, which can help slow down the condition.

This is a horrible autoimmune disease. It mostly effects joint, but can effect other organs. The disease usually begins gradually with fatigue, morning stiffness (lasting more than one hour), widespread muscle aches, loss of appetite, and weakness. Eventually, joint pain appears. When the joint is not used for a while, it can become warm, tender, and stiff. When the lining of the joint (synovium) becomes inflamed, it gives off more fluid and the joint becomes swollen. Joint pain is often felt on both sides of the body, and may effect the wrist, knees, elbows, fingers, toes, ankle or neck.
Rheumatoid arthritis sucks.

Rackatoid Arthritis is a chronic disease affecting woman mainly characterized by inflammation of the lining of lumbar, hip, and knee joints due to, among other reasons, the repetitive stress on the body associated with munificent natural or artificial breasts. It is closely related to the syndrome affecting overweight males known as Bitchtitoid Arthritis. Sometimes Rackatoid Arthritis can arise from the rapid denigration of spine curvature (see Splendidbreastosis).
While Mary's magnanimous mammaries made her the focal point of teen attention during her cheerleading tenure, in later years she regrettably suffered terribly first with Splendidbreastosis, and subsequently with Rackatoid Arthritis which effectively brought an end to, among other things, her scantily clad pogo stick videos which enjoyed a burgeoning audience on YouTube.
