Hi Brenda jill is right it is a pretenshious (can't spell that) clinical word to say you have arthritis. I googles it and that term applies to many forms of arthritis it's not a name for one kind. As jill lists abouve there are many forms of arthritis. Give your rheumy nurse a ring and tell her you are a little confused about what your specialist told you. She is more likely to give you a laymans explanation. And will help to put your mind at rest.
Jill and I have lived with arthritis etc for over twenty years and we still have a life. The meds are important part of that they slow the disease down so you get less damage in the future. Hope this helps take care xxxx
