Rheumatic diseases can affect any joint in our bodies, causing pain and inflammation. More than a hundred conditions are classified as being rheumatic, including osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, and ankylosing spondylitis. Although fibromyalgia does not cause inflammation, it is sometimes referred to as a rheumatic condition due to symptoms such as fatigue and chronic pain.
Rheumatic symptoms include pain, soreness, stiffness, and symptomatic worsening in response to weather changes.
While some rheumatic conditions may be caused by wear and tear of the joints, others can be caused by autoimmune diseases when your own body attacks the lining of joints, like arthritis.
