arthritis or what

I have been told i have r arthritis in my knees and other joints but i'm not sure. If i slightly knock my joints, especially my knees or shoulder, they bruise and swell up and are so painful,this starts within 1-2 seconds, that i can't walk or stand up and stays that way for at least 2 days. I cannot bend my knees or elbows for more than 3 minutes at a time.

"i have been told i have arthritis"...Were you diagnosed by a doctor?  If not, I would make an appointment with one.  The doctor will be able to determine if it is arthritis or not.  I hope you feel better soon.

Yes i was diagnosed by a doctor. It was at a Rheumatology Clinic. I don't attend the clinic as the doctor discharged me after telling me that i have DISH and Rheuatoid Arthritis.

I don't understand...the rheumatologist discharged you without a treatment plan and no follow-up appointment??
