Patient discussion about arthritic

Q. What types of arthritis are there? I am familiar with several types of arthritis, for instance R.A or ostheoarthritis. Are there more types?

A. Arthritis is a symptom that can occur on its own as part of a known disease such as RA, osteoarthritis or Gout, and can also happen as a part of other complex of symptoms involving the joints in other diseases such as: Crohn’s disease, ulcerative colitis, psoriasis and so on. Other diseases can mimic arthritis for instance: osteoporosis or multiple myeloma.
