Arthritis is one such condition that worsens with age. More than 10 million cases are seen per year. Sadly, I became a sufferer of arthritis as well. I am in my early 50s, and the signs started when I was in my 40s. I have been under medications for the last 8 years, but cannot see any improvement. The early signs were not painful. As my age and the condition progressed, I started facing joint pain, stiffness, and finally stopped the normal functioning of my hands and legs. After regular visiting my doctor and physiotherapist, I regained the mobility of my body parts, but did not heal permanently. I face a lot of trouble while walking down the stairs, stiffness in the joints in the morning, inability to use my hand and more.
