What does having Arthritis feel like?

Do you feel the area around a joint, such as the wrist, knee, or elbow, can become red, swollen, and tender to the touch? Does it also feel warm?

Having this condition can also limit  the physical and social aspects of people’s lives. Arthritis may affect your ability to bend, lift, or grasp objects, or walk more than a short distance. As the condition worsens, it can impact every aspect of daily life, like bathing, grooming, and using the toilet. Joint pain may also alter your ability to do household tasks such as shopping, cleaning, and the laundry. Pain can also limit your social and leisure activities. People who have arthritis may have feelings of helplessness and loss of control over their lives, which can lead to depression.



The doctor of the future will give no medicines,

but will interest his patients in the care of the human frame,

in diet, and in the causes and prevention of disease.

~Thomas Edison


There are over 100 different forms of arthritis and one of the most common form in Singapore is rheumatoid arthritis. People suffering from arthritis will have symptoms of painful, swelling joint stiffness and a constant ache around the joints. Serious symptoms includes the immobility -inability to use the hand or even walk, weight loss, sleeplessness.

Regular exercise is emphasised especially for rheumatoid arthritis as it is important to keep the muscles strong in order to support the joints, while movement allows reduction in stiffness. Living with arthritis is a painful and stressful ordeal for the patient and their loved ones. The inability to move can cause the individual to become depressed very easily. According to the Arthritis Foundation, a program of yoga poses, breathing and relaxation can make a huge difference in joint tenderness and swelling.
