There is no way of knowing for sure, did your doctor mention cartilage erosion?

Customer: replied 6 years ago.
you still have not told me what kind of arthritis i have sir
Expert:  Andy R replied 6 years ago.

It may be either rheumatoid arthritis or just a degenerating joint without having to be arthritis. If you have no other joint problems it may just be degenerative joint disease, which is a form of arthritis. Please review the website I've attached for further information.
