by Lesli Chadwick
This inflammation can further impact other organs, such as the eyes, heart and lungs.
Symptoms include low back and buttocks pain or stiffness. Pain can spread to the
neck, shoulders, ribs, hips and thighs. Fatigue and anemia are may happen as well.

Another form of arthritis is bursitis, which usually affects the hips, shoulders and
elbows. However, in some cases it can also be felt in the knees, heels are in the big
toe. Since bursitis is the effect caused by repetitive motion in the joints, some
athletes are prone to it, but bad posture can be a cause as well. Symptoms are pain
and stiffness in the joints which become more intense when the joint is used. The
joint may also swell and become warm to the touch.

Both adult and juvenile arthritis symptoms are much the same, including pain,
swelling and stiffness of the joints. Symptoms aren't constant, but usually come and
go. Since a child may not mention these symptoms, parents should be on the
lookout for children limping, being unusually clumsy, or not wanting to get involved in
physical activities like they normally would.

In older people, osteoarthritis is the most common form, as long-term everyday use
of the joints is part of the cause. Symptoms will vary, depending on which joints are
impacted. Many with it in their fingers don't even know it until it's revealed by an
x-ray. Symptoms are the standard pain and swelling, however the pain will fade over

If the body has too much uric acid, gout is a potential problem. The symptom of this
form of arthritis is intense pain-usually in the big toe. The toe may become swollen,
red and warm to the touch. While the toe is the most common place for gout, it can
also manifest itself in the wrists, ankles and knees. Symptoms may not show
themselves again for several years, but if left untreated, the crystals formed by the
uric acid and destroy a portion of the bone.

Next in the list of types of arthritis, we have rheumatoid arthritis which is caused by
an overactive immune system. Generally, the symptoms start out as minor stiffness
and pain which may come and go, but it will get worse overtime and become more
frequent. If this arthritis can be caught within the first few months of manifestation,
treatment is most effective.

If you feel you have any of these types of arthritis, or notice any of these arthritis
symptoms, you should see your doctor. You have a greater chance of dealing with it
properly if you can treat it in its early stages.
