As a supplement in higher doses than is found naturally, chondroitin is a popular treatment for osteoarthritis. As an osteoarthritis treatment, chondroitin is often used along with another supplement,glucosamine.

Iit could be one of many conditions from Fibromyalgia, Osteoarthritis, Arthritis or Rheumatoid Arthritis. But they are all treated differently. However, the sooner you seek treatment, if its rheumatoid arthritis, the better as over time chronic inflammation can cause erosions and weakness of the bones as well as the muscles, which could then lead to severe rheumatoid arthritis.
You are most likely to develop rheumatoid arthritis between the ages of 30 and 50 whereas arthritis can affect people of any age. Fibromyalgia is mainly in women and could also strike at any time.
Unlike osteoarthritis, which is caused by wear and tear of the joints, rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease whereby instead of fighting infection, the immune system attacks the cells that line the joints which then damages them.
They now know that much of the long-term damage can happen in the first months of developing the condition, so an early diagnosis is crucial.
Unfortunately, a bit like Fibromyalgia, there is no one single test for rheumatoid arthritis and so the diagnosis can be complicated. Usually you will be referred to a rheumatologist, who will examine your joints and may send your for xrays, and ultrasound or an MRI scan and of course take some blood tests.
Once you have been diagnosed then you will be cared for by a team of specialists . Moving around can be one of the difficult problems with rheumatoid arthritis but they do say that borage seed oil and evening primrose oil ‘may’ help reduce morning stiffness.
