Inflammatory arthritis is arthritis which will inflame the joints. There are many types of this type of arthritis, but to simplify it, I am only going to go over a few types and tell what these types are specifically.
One of the most common inflammatory arthritis types is rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis can cause a variety of joint pain symptoms as well as other symptoms that make you feel unwell. The symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis are those such as:
1. Intensive joint pains
2. Inflammation of the joints causing swelling
3. Sometimes you may have a rash
4. Fever may be present
Diagnosis of Rheumatoid Arthritis involves something called a SED-RATE blood test. This test will show abnormal results in mostly all people that have rheumatoid arthritis. Another very important test the rheumatologist will certainly do is the blood test which tells the rheumatoid factor in the blood. That factor is always high in the case of people with rheumatoid arthritis.
Upon finding out that Rheumatoid Arthritis is the case, treatments will begin with anti-inflammatory drugs along with a cancer fighting drug called Methotrexate, which my mom has taken for years for rheumatoid arthritis. Methotrexate does wonders for pain reduction of rheumatoid arthritis and helps the person be able to live a happier pain-free life.
Doctors might also use steroid pills or injections to reduce the pain from Rheumatoid Arthritis.
Another inflammatory arthritis type is actually Systemic Lupus. Systemic Lupus is very debilitating over time to the person who has it. The disease brings on symptoms such as:
1. Joint pains, inflammation, and a lot of swelling in the extrem0.0Inflammatory arthritis is arthritis which will inflame the joints. There are many types of this type of arthritis, but to simplify it, I am only going to go over a few types and tell what these types are specifically.
First, you must understand that any type of inflammatory arthritis is an autoimmune disorder. Autoimmune diseases are those which causes the immune system to launch an attack on its own antibodies, causing various types of medical problems. Inflammatory arthritis is arthritis which will inflame the joints. There are many types of this type of arthritis, but to simplify it, I am only going to go over a few types and tell what these types are specifically.
2. There is definitely skin rashes in many places. 3. Headaches 4. Fevers occur 5. Infections, colds, and flu
Systemic Lupus can be very mild, or very severe. Instead of your immune system creating healthy antibodies, in Systemic Lupus, your immune system prefers to create antibodies that attack major organs.
Treatment for Systemic Lupus involves treating the symptoms that radiate from the disease since there is no cure at this time. Drugs that have an anti-inflammatory effect may help, and a diet that contains foods with properties which help bone and joint pains may ease some of the joint discomfort.
Skin medications and creams may help the various skin type of problems with lupus as well as staying out of the bright sunlight.
Another commonly heard about inflammatory arthritis type is Reiter's Syndrome. Reiter's Syndrome is just as bad as Systemic Lupus in that it causes a lot of joint pain and inflammation, and is very life-limiting as far as being free from pain. This condition is one of those joint diseases that progresses step-by-step, going so far as to affect the eyes conjunctiva, tendons that are latched on to the joints, and the whole body's bone structures, (meaning the skeleton). Interestingly enough, this inflammatory arthritis type comes from sexually transmitted diseases. Venereal diseases carry many types of bacteria strains that cause this dreadful disease.
Symptoms of Reiter's Syndrome are:
1. Genitalia pain since it is coming from bacterias there
2. Multiple joint pains all over the body such as elbows, knees, foot joints, and every possible joint thought of.
3. It is common to have many sores and many rashes
People with Reiter's Syndrome are helped up to a point with anti-inflammatory medications, and possibly Methotrexate, heat therapies for all of the joint pains, and nutritional changes may help.
If the underlying venereal disease is cured or controlled, a lot of the pain from Reiter's Syndrome will clear up since this is the main cause to begin with. To avoid Reiter's Syndrome to begin with, be aware of venereal disease with your sexual partner.
Ankylosing Spondylitis is an inflammatory type of arthritis caused by many years of doing athletics. After a certain number of years as an athlete, bones and ligaments get torn. If this sports related injury is not treated on an ongoing basis, then bone problems will continue progressing until Ankylosing Spondylitis developments within the connective tissues.
This bone issue begins within the sacroiliac joints. This is where both the pelvis and lower spine join together. The symptoms are:
1. Intense back pains
3. Trouble with relaxation and breathing very deeply
4. Painful, swollen, red eyes
Treatment for Ankylosing Spondylitis involves getting the immune system back up to where it should be, and the use of steroids and doing blood testing trying to find the reasons for antibodies not functioning properly in the first place. Some of the causes can be due to allergies in foods, and other infectious cycles taking place within the body itself.
