Arthritis Causes and Symptoms
Signs and Symptoms of Arthritis in the Spine
There are many different types of arthritis that can be caused by a number of different conditions. No matter what causes the arthritis, though, there are common signs and symptoms that the sufferer will experience. This can include:
- Pain and swelling in the joints.
- Stiffness in the joints.
- Feeling tired more often.
- Not being able to sleep at night.
- A persistent low-grade fever.
- Aches and pains in your muscles.
Unfortunately, these symptoms can lead to even more serious health concerns. Patients with arthritis are often unable to get the recommended amount of exercise each day, leading to issues with their weight and causing them to be at risk of obesity, heart disease, high cholesterol and other serious health concerns. It can also limit their ability to participate in activities with their family and friends, creating issues like depression and isolation.
