What is Arthritis?
Arthritis means joint pain associated with inflammation (redness, warmth and swelling). All joint pains are not arthritis.
All joint pains are not arthritis.
Most rheumatology diseases are a particular type of arthritis. However, depending on disease type, they can affect any organ of the body. Thus, they can be serious diseases too. They even affect children and young people.
Rheumatology diseases are autoimmune diseases
Rheumatic diseases are often autoimmune in nature. Autoimmune diseases are diseases, where a part of one’s own immune system automatically starts acting against itself. It is unknown why this ‘auto’ ‘immune’ activation causes problems only in a few. Note, it is not the low immunity, but over active immunity, which is the problem. Over active immunity loves to hit joints, this is why most rheumatic diseases have arthritis.
Who is a Rheumatologist?
Rheumatologist is a physician doctor, who is specially trained to investigate & treat various types of arthritis and rheumatic diseases with medicines. They are also commonly known as ‘joint pain or arthritis’ doctors. They are different from orthopaedic doctors, who are surgeons. However, both type of doctors need to work together, at times, to treat some patients.
It is necessary to start treatment early if you suffer from rheumatic illness. As immunity is over active in these diseases, the medicines used to treat these diseases regulate and sometimes suppress the immune system. Early effective treatment helps prevent serious joint damage and can help save life in serious rheumatic disease.
