Osteoarthritis affects nearly 21 million Americans. The chance of developing the disease increases with age. Most people over age 60 have osteoarthritis to some degree, but its severity varies. Even people in their 20s and 30s can get osteoarthritis. In people over 50, more women than men get osteoarthritis.
Dealing with pain can be the hardest part of having arthritis or a related condition, but you can learn to manage it and its impact on your life. Symptoms of osteoarthritis most often develop gradually and include: * Joint aching and soreness, especially with movement. * Pain after overuse or after long periods of inactivity. * Bony enlargements in the middle and end joints of the fingers (which may or may not be painful). * Joint swelling and joint fluid accumulation.
