Osteoarthritis is the most common of the three different types of arthritis that can occur in the knee. It is a progressive disease that slowly wears away joint cartilage, most likely to strike after middle age.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an inflammatory disease that can strike at any age.
When arthritis develops following an injury to the knee, it is called post-traumatic arthritis.
Some types of arthritis can cause fatigue. Check out these other symptoms:
- Swelling or Tenderness of the knee
- Gradual increase in pain
- Poor range of motion when extending the knee
- Grinding or Popping sensation in the knee
- Loss of joint space
