Which arthritis is worse? Rheumatoid or Osteoarthritis?

Both. It depends upon patient condition. As far as RA is concerned there is no treatment in the world; but our recent research has enabled us to treat it with 90% success. We treat OA, but our sucess is limited to 50%. Don't get confused with figures, many times OA is more painful!

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease, which means that your body basically attacks the joints. That is the reason that I find it to be worse than osteoarthritis. There can be quite a few complications with it. Osteoarthritis is very painful still and I hope I never have either of these.

The pain of arthritis is very similar, weather its rheumatoid or osteo (both very painful). Its like there is broken glass in the joints. Rheumatoid usually affects young people and osteo affects older people. If u r predisposed to arthritis (Its in ur family) ur will probably get it at some time in ur life. Most people in the western world will suffer some form of arthritis, unfortunately.

They are both terrible. One is not worse than the other. Very painful and debilitating. People have said rheumatoid, but osteoarthritis is just as bad. Instead of fevers and swelling, just turning over in bed you can fracture bones. You can fracture your tailbone just by sitting down. Just miss-step slightly when walking and break a few bones in your foot. God forbid you fall down. You can shatter a hip and/or leg, back, arms, wrists....all at once.

Rheumatoid is worse in my opinion. thats the one where your knuckles (and other joints) get all distorted and extremely painful, few effective treatments and no cure. At least with osteo, it can be controlled with medications and at worst, joint replacements.

They are both painful but i would say rheumatoid becasue you can actually get a frever with it and severe swelling it just doesnt affect the bones you can have flu like symptoms as well
