Osteoarthritis (OA) Symptoms

The most common symptom associated with osteoarthritis is pain and aching in the joints. Osteoarthritis joint pain is exacerbated by movement or under stress, but relieved while immobile. However, the joints will become stiff after a long period at rest. Common indications of osteoarthritis include joint tenderness, bone spurs, inflammation, and morning stiffness.
