Answer by Coyote
uh.. i heard of a rheumatoid arthritus, which is worse than osteoarthritus (most common form of arthritus). osteoarthritus is pain and stiffness in a particular joint, while i heard rheumatoid arthritus is some type of arthritus that can get increasingly worse and cause permanent joint damage sometimes if not treated well.
