What Causes My Arthritis Flareups?

Do you have arthritis? One of the main causes of arthritis pain is inflammation. It happens because there’s tissue damage in the body. When there’s tissue damage, your body releases chemicals which alert your nerves to carry pain signals to your brain. Then you feel pain at the site of the tissue damage. Interesting, right? But not something you want!

Possible Causees of Arthritis

While arthritis has been studied, the exact cause of it is still unknown. That said, researchers have found some risk factors that could cause it, including obesity, smoking, genetics, and joint injury or overuse. Joints can also degenerate over time, so if certain joints are overused they tend to degenerate faster. If you or someone you know is dealing with osteoarthritis, chances are certain joints were overused in the hips, knees, neck, lower back or hands. Runners could get this issue in their knees since they run often. Sewers could get this issue in their hands since they’re using them to sew. You get the idea. Cartilage can wear away thanks to overuse, and then you’ve got bones rubbing together which hurts! Meanwhile, being overweight doesn’t help– it puts more strain on joints and muscles.

What Does Rheumatoid Arthritis Entail?

Have you heard of rheumatoid arthritis? This happens when your body’s immune system essentially attacks healthy cells in your body by mistake. Then you experience painful swelling in the tissues and lining of the joints in certain parts of the body such as fingers, toes, wrists, hips or knees. Women are more likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis, and risk factors include smoking, obesity and age.
