What type of Arthritis

About 10 years ago I was diagnosed with Lumbar Spondylosis and more recently, after xrays etc on my neck and shoulders, my GP has told me I have arthritis in these areas.  When I asked him what type of arthritis it was he just said 'it's arthritis'.  He has put me on Condrosulf 400mg - are these tablets given to help any type of arthritis or are they prescribed to help a particilar form of arthritis.

Dear Sallybeans,
When you are asking " Type of Arthritis" are you specifically asking to rule out RA?
The type of presentation you have said, points towards the diagnosis of Degenerative arthritis.Chondrosulf 400mg is the right medicine for the arthritis.But i think, you would need to start spine physiotherapy also along with the medicines as arthritis causes pain.The present medication will only de-accelerate the speed of arthritis.
Feel free to ask more....
