What is the difference between osteoarthritis and inflammatory arthritis?

In Osteoarthritis, It is caused by physical use, wear and tear of a joint over time, or/and occasionally like over a short time as a result of an injury ( ie fall, sport, dancing etc).

Inflammatory arthritis is a chronic autoimmune disease. For instant your immune system misidentifies your own body tissues as harmful germs or/and pathogens and attacks them. This results in inflammation of the affected tissues in and around joints.

Because Osteoarthritis involves physical wear on the joints in the body, it normally appears in people after the age of 50. The older you get, the more likely you will to get osteoarthritis.

Since inflammatory arthritis is a chronic (painful) disease, it definitely affects people of all ages, often hitting them (people) in their prime or peak working age and child-rearing age. Inflammatory arthritis diseases can often be diagnosed in patients as young as age 18 or 29. BUT Less common in kids and teens may be diagnosed with a form of childhood arthritis,

What is inflammatory arthritis?

Inflammatory arthritis is joint inflammation caused by an hyper or high-strung immune system. It normally affects many joints throughout the body together or same time. Inflammatory forms of arthritis are much less common than osteoarthritis, which affects most people at the later stages of life.

Joint pain and stiffness after periods of rest or inactivity, Mainly in the morning (some in the cold weather and change of seasons)

Swelling, redness and/or a feeling of warmth in the affected joints
