Arthritis is one of the most common reasons for joint discomfort. Aside from osteoarthritis (OA), the most common form of the disease is rheumatoid arthritis (RA) (RA).

Other causes

Pain can be caused by:

  • bursitis, or inflammation of the cushioning pads around joints
  • lupus
  • gout
  • certain infectious diseases, such as mumps, influenza, and hepatitis
  • chondromalacia of the patella, or a breakdown of the cartilage in the kneecap
  • an injury
  • tendinitis, or inflammation of the tendon
  • an infection of the bone or joint
  • overuse of a joint
  • cancer
  • fibromyalgia
  • osteoporosis
  • sarcoidosis
  • rickets

Your hands may be hurting because you’ve been sitting at a desk for a long time. While arthritis or osteoarthritis may be to blame, it is also possible. Working in the trades can cause knee discomfort, but it can also be exacerbated by obesity. Discomfort alleviation and a long-term healing strategy are necessary when dealing with joint pain, which can stem from a variety of different sources.
