Is the pain in your joints increasing without any sign of recovery despite medication? Does it bring along fever, fatigue and loss of appetite too? These can be signs of Arthritis- either Osteo or Rheumatoid. That causes inflammation in the joints and hence leads to unbearable pain. If not paid attention, this can lead to deformity of joints. The problem is the result of imbalanced vata dosha.
People who are suffering from Arthritis- either Osteo or Rheumatoid, have to come across this situation due to sports injuries and old age to be more prominent, degeneration where the fluids inside our body becomes dry, due to increased toxins thus leading to swelling, inflammation and stiffness.

People with Osteo Arthritis are recommended oiling, both in massage and diet as well but contrary to it, Rheumatoid Arthritis does not.
