If you feel pain and stiffness in your body or have trouble moving around, you might have arthritis. Arthritis is not the name for one disease rather it is a broad term that covers a group of over 100 diseases. It is a disease affecting your joints– the places where your bones connect like wrists, knees, hips, or fingers. However some other types of arthritis can also affect the connective tissues and organs, including your skin.
It can affect anyone, however it is more common with your age. About 1 out of 5 adults have some form of the condition. As you get older, your joints tend to get worn down.
