    This list is full of errors. Some diseases appear repeatedly, and many are not arthritis at all, though they may be related to it. Flat feet, for instance—that is not even a disease, let alone a type of arthritis. It's just a deformity that can cause or be caused by arthritis. Osteoporosis is not arthritis. That and several other bone problems appear in this list; probably they are associated with arthritis in some cases, but that does not make them "forms of arthritis". And there are many other problems that I don't care to hunt down and list here.

    Better to call this "169 medical phenomena that probably have some connection with arthritis".

    Thanks for posting this article. I never realized that I have so many different forms of arthritis at the same time.

    I have the following, # 162 - arthritis of ulcerative colitis, # 156 - tennis elbow, #134 - sarcoidosis, # 123 - raynaud's phenomenon, # 104 - osteoporosis, # 98 - osteoarthritis, #29 - degenerative joint disease, and # 4 - adhesive capsulitis.

    The last one adhesive capsulitis , I have right now, and it is extremely painful, motion is limited in my shoulder and arm. (this is also called frozen shoulder)
    this can last anywhere from 6 months to 3 years in pain.

    I had this several years ago in the other shoulder and it took almost 28 months for me to get relef. After this shoulder cleared up from the scar tissue, I ended up with osteoarthritis in that shoulder.

    Yes, that's a lot to figure out which ones are the ones we have, the list just seems endless. Xrays can show some, blood work can show other types, but none of this achy feels good, I would like to evict it all, from our bodies. I would love a day, when nothing hurt, or botheredme.

    I think doctors diagnose more often than not based on symptoms alone.
