How do I know if I have arthritis?
A consultation and exam will help you know for sure, but you may suspect arthritis if you experience:
- Sore or stiff joints
- Limits to your range of motion
- Clicking or cracking sounds at affected joints
- Mild swelling
- Pain that worsens following activity
Joints that are typically affected include your knees, hips, shoulders and elbows. Arthritis pain usually increases over time.
