JOINT PAIN

JOINT PAIN OVERVIEW

Joint pain refers to discomfort, aches, and soreness in any of the body’s joints. Joint pain is a common complaint. It doesn’t typically require a hospital visit.

Sometimes, joint pain is the result of an illness or injury. Arthritis is also a common cause of joint pain. However, it can also be due to other conditions or factors.

COMMON CAUSES OF JOINT PAIN

The most common causes of chronic pain in joints are:

  • Osteoarthritis, a common type of arthritis, happens over time when the cartilage, the protective cushion in between the bones, wears away. The joints become painful and stiff. Osteoarthritis develops slowly and usually occurs during middle age.
  • Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disease that causes swelling and pain in the joints. Often the joints become deformed (usually occurring in the fingers and wrists).
  • Gout is a painful condition where crystals from the body collect in the joint, causing severe pain and swelling. This usually occurs in the big toe.
  • Bursitis is caused by overuse. It is usually found in the hip, knee, elbow, or shoulder.
  • Viral infections, rash, or fever may make joint movement painful.
  • Injuries, such as broken bones or sprains
  • Tendinitis is an inflammation of the tendons, or the flexible bands that connect bone and muscle. It is typically seen in the elbow, heel, or shoulder and is usually caused by overuse.

JOINT PAIN SYMPTOMS

In some cases, your joint pain will require you to see a doctor. You should make an appointment if you don’t know the cause of your joint pain and are experiencing other unexplained symptoms.

Common symptoms of joint pain:

  • The area around the joint is swollen, red, tender, or warm to the touch
  • The pain persists for three days or more
  • You have a fever but no other signs of the flu
  • You’ve experienced a serious injury.
  • The joint appears deformed.
  • Swelling of the joint occurs suddenly.
  • The joint is completely immobile.
