More Signs of Osteoarthritis

Final Thoughts on Osteoarthritis Symptoms

As mentioned above, there are many possible symptoms of osteoarthritis. But a number of these symptoms are shared with other medical conditions. Therefore, if you have any possible symptoms of osteoarthritis and they last longer than two weeks, you should see your regular doctor or a rheumatologist. He or she will be able to help diagnose and treat the problem. If you have a fever, feel physically ill, suddenly have a swollen joint, or have problems using your joint, see your healthcare provider sooner.
Finally, remember that most people with osteoarthritis live active, productive lives despite any limitations. They do so by using treatment strategies such as rest and exercise, pain-relief medications, education and support programs, learning self-care, and having a "good attitude."
