Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Arthritis has many causes. Some are autoimmune, some are age related, some are manifestations of autoimmune or systemic illness. They need to be correlate for the cause and then treated accordingly. corticosteroids and NSAIDs are mainstay of treatment.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
