“The joints on my fingers are red and swollen.” “ My knees are swollen.” “My elbow aches and feels hot.”
This or a similar experience is what arthritis patients report.
One or more joints are swollen, red and painful. This is a clear sign of joint inflammation. It could happen in just one joint, or in several. It can creep up slowly or come on suddenly without a recognizable cause. It can come up after a fall or other trauma, with or without a bacterial inflammation.
It is a common experience that arthritis pain increases during movement. Very often the ability to move is restricted due to pain.
