Depending on the answers you have given, you may have symptoms of arthritis or arthrosis. We recommend that you contact your doctor for an accurate diagnosis. Arthritis and arthrosis are often confused but are completely different: Arthritis is a typical inflammatory process. Within the joint, an “angry immune system” is created, resulting in chronic inflammation, which also leads to joint damage and, of course, pain. In arthrosis, on the other hand, there is a consumption of the joint, associated with the age and wear of the joint itself.
