Symptom: Pain and stiffness



DESCRIPTION: Joint stiffness is a common characteristic of arthritis. It is defined as discomfort after a period of inactivity, decreased range of motion or a loss of range of motion in a joint. With osteoarthritis, joint stiffness after waking may last up to 30 minutes. With inflammatory types of arthritis such as rheumatoid arthritis or systemic lupus erythematosus, the stiffness typically lasts more than 45 minutes. Joint pain may also be caused by bursitis. The bursae are fluid-filled sacs that cushion and pad bony prominences, allowing muscles and tendons to move freely over the bone.
