Symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis differ considerably from those of other types of arthritis, such as gout and osteoarthritis. For example, gout tends to cause intermittent joint inflammation in a single join, with a sudden onset, and episodes last only a few days. Osteoarthritis, on the other hand, tends to cause chronic (long-term) use-related pain. In addition, osteoarthritis is associated with minimal or no inflammation and involves fewer joints than does rheumatoid arthritis. Morning stiffness, a typical feature of rheumatoid arthritis, is uncommon in osteoarthritis.
