Health Tip: What Causes Arthritis Pain?

Health Tip: What Causes Arthritis Pain?


(HealthDay News) -- It's no secret to any person with arthritis that pain comes with the territory.

But what makes arthritis so painful? The Arthritis Foundation offers this list of contributing factors:

  • Arthritis causes painful inflammation (swelling) of the joints.
  • Arthritis -- over time -- damages joint tissue, causing additional pain.
  • Arthritis leads to a feeling of fatigue, which makes pain feel worse and more difficult to manage.
  • Arthritis can lead to symptoms of stress or depression, making you focus more on pain and lament not being able to do the things you once enjoyed.
