Difference Between Rheumatoid Arthritis And Bone Tuberculosis?
Hello Nurdiyanah, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease of the joint caused by an autoimmune process, which is a process that causes the body's immune cells to attack healthy body tissues and cause an inflammation and tissue damage. Especially for rheumatoid arthritis, body tissue that is attacked is part of the joint so that it can cause complaints as you experience.
While bone TB is a bone infection (most often in the spine) caused by TB germs. This condition can indeed cause complaints that resemble a rheumatoid arthritis, but the two are very different both in the process of occurrence, treatment and also the possibility of cure where bone tuberculosis requires special TB therapy and the infection can be completely removed if treated properly.
Whereas rheumatoid arthirits, because it is an autoimmune disease, is still not completely cured as in bone TB, but can only be controlled to prevent recurrence and slow the possibility of worsening the condition of the sufferer.
Because you have seen a doctor and have been diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis based on an examination of complaints, history of illness and also your physical condition, it is strongly recommended that you currently undergo all the therapies recommended by your doctor at this time until you return to take control. evaluate your treatment, whether you need additional drugs or other medical measures to overcome the condition you are experiencing.
I hope this helps.
