Arthritis / Joint Pain

Those experiencing arthritis symptoms and general joint pain should consider various factors including lifestyle and diet that may be having an effect on their condition.

Why do my joints hurt?

It is estimated that more than 9 million people in the UK suffer from arthritis and related conditions, experiencing frequent stiffness, pain, swelling, fatigue and reduced mobility.

There are different types of arthritis; rheumatoid arthritis is one example where inflammation occurs as the body’s immune system targets affected joints, leading to pain and swelling which can be debilitating.

Joint pain symptoms:
Typical joint pain symptoms include:

• Persistently aching joints such as ankles, wrists, knees, hips, back or shoulders
• Stiffness or swelling in joints
• Pain during movement

Joint Pain and Diet 

If you find yourself asking “why do my joints hurt?” and experience prolonged aches and pains without an obvious cause, you should visit your GP to rule out any underlying medical conditions.

For those with joint pain, maintaining an anti-inflammatory diet could be beneficial to your joint health. Aching bones and joints have also been linked to vitamin D deficiency.
