What Is Arthritis?

Arthritis is not just a single disease; it refers to joint pain or disease. There are more than 100 different types of arthritis and related conditions. Common symptoms include swelling, pain, stiffness, and decreased range of motion in the affected joints. These symptoms can be mild, moderate, or severe, and they may stay the same for years or progress and worsen over time.

What Are the Symptoms of Arthritis?

Symptoms of arthritis may include:

  • Persistent joint pain
  • Swelling in joints
  • Stiffness, especially in the morning or after sitting for long periods
  • Redness and warmth in a joint
  • Decreased ability to move the joint through its full range of motion

Should I See a Doctor About My Arthritis Symptoms?

If you’re experiencing persistent joint pain or stiffness that affects your quality of life and ability to perform daily activities, it’s essential to consult a healthcare provider. Early diagnosis and treatment can prevent further joint damage and improve your quality of life.
