Pauline, osteoarthritis is “wear and tear” arthritis, i.e. damage to joints due to old age, excessive use or trauma. Polyarthritis means that many joints are affected. I wrote something about the differences between osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis a while ago and if you’re interested in a copy you can mail me at netdoc@mweb.co.za. Good luck.
