how long does it take for arthritis to cure?

Dr. Dan Fisher
26 years experience Internal Medicine
Depends.: Arthritis is a very broad term that includes many different kinds of arthritis ( osteoarthritis, gout, psoriatic, rheumatoid, traumatic, viral, gonorrheal, etc.). Some forms never cure while others are transient. As you are young it really could be anything. Need a diagnosis in order to be able to predict the outcome.
