Is Arthritis Causing Your Pain and Stiffness?

If your knees creak or your knuckles ache, you could have one of two types of joint disease -- rheumatoid arthritis (RA) or osteoarthritis (OA). It’s important to determine which you have (if either) because they call for different treatments. Only your doctor can diagnose your symptoms, but take this quiz to learn the differences, pinpoint your complaints and determine your next steps.

Osteoarthritis is Also Called:
a) Wear-and-tear arthritis
b) Weak bone syndrome
c) Familial osteoporosis
