10 Rheumatoid Arthritis Symptoms You Shouldn’t Ignore!

3) Pain in Motion

Pain in motion means that you will notice that your joints hurt when you move. You may also feel pain in your muscles and tendons. Pain is usually associated with stiffness and worsens in a cold climate.

Joint pain in arthritis can be very severe. In the advanced stages of the disease, the pain is intense because the articulation is already damaged with ongoing inflammation for years and the bone ends start to rub one another and cause mechanical damage, too. Tiny fingers are formed in the bone ends, which rub against the adjacent bone and contribute to the damage.

Inflammation is painful and triggers nerve terminals communicating this sensation to the brain. So, even if no mechanical process is still present, you will likely experience joint pain.
