Great question! There are over 100 types of arthritis that can cause joint pain, so to further determine what type you might have, you need further evaluation. Historically, key blood tests and X-rays will likely need to be done, too. In either case, I would advise you to follow up with a rheumatologist for further evaluation, as there can be many different causes for your symptoms and it should be evaluated by a healthcare professional.
