Understanding Arthritis

Arthritis can affect most anyone. It is particularly common among:

  • amateur athletes
  • heavy equipment laborers
  • outdoor workers
  • aging seniors
  • overweight persons of any age

If you’ve been injured or if there’s a history of arthritis in your family, it may claim you as a victim.

According to the Arthritis Foundation, it’s impossible to get an exact count of arthritis sufferers because many people, believing they just have a temporary ache or pain, self-medicate using over-the-counter remedies rather than consulting a physician and learning that they are in the first stages of arthritis.

How can I find out if I have arthritis?

If you have arthritis, your joints will ache and you’ll tire easily.  Pain overtakes your mindset making it hard for you to concentrate on work – or leisure activities.  You’ll find yourself:

  • moving around with greater difficulty
  • tiring more easily
  • needing to rest in between activities
  • waking with night pain that causes you to sleep less

Over time, you are likely to experience:

  • weakened resistance
  • intensifying pain

It’s time to consult your physician about how to deal with your particular type of arthritis and how to manage your pain and movement.

If these preliminary symptoms cause you pain and discomfort for two or more weeks, see your doctor.
