Problems that affect the functionality of a person’s hand can be quite frustrating. One such issue is arthritis. In order to identify whether or not you are experiencing this problem, it will be helpful to know about the signs and symptoms of arthritis.
When a patient has arthritis, they may be dealing with a lot of pain in their hand and fingers. This may be accompanied by stiffness and a feeling of pressure. Patients may also notice severe swelling and inflammation in the joints of the fingers, hand, or wrist.
When these symptoms occur, it can cause restriction of motion and interfere with normal hand and finger functions, making one’s quality of life suffer.
