What are the symptoms of OsteoArthritis?
The 5 main symptoms of OsteoArthritis are:
The pain tends to be worse when you move your joint at the start or end of the day. If you have severe OsteoArthritis, you may feel pain more often.
The swelling may be hard (caused by osteophytes) or soft (caused by synovial thickening and extra fluid), and the muscles around your joint may look thin or wasted.
Grating/grinding sensation (crepitus)
Your joint may creak or crunch as you move.
Your joints may feel stiff after rest, but this usually wears off as you get moving.
Not being able to use your joint normally
Your joint may not move as freely or as far as normal. Sometimes it may give way because your muscles have weakened or your joint has become less stable. Exercises to strengthen your muscles can help to prevent this.
