I Get My Hand Stiff In The Moring And Some Days Is Hard To Get Up When Sitting Ans When I Go For Walks The Next Day My Joints Are In Some Much Pain.what Can It Be,

My hand gets stiff in the morning and sometimes my whole body is stiff and it is hard to get up. When I go for walks, my joints ache the next day and I am in great pain. What can it be?

Answer

Morning joint stiffness and pain can be the early signs of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Of course, there are many other possibilities as well. Like many of the inflammatory conditions that affect the joint, it is best to see a Rheumatologist to catch the culprit early and initiate appropriate treatment. Stopping a fire before it roars out of control can save you much pain in the future. Time to see a doctor.
