If you have arthritis, or know someone who does, you know how painful and debilitating the disease can be. The best way to deal with arthritis varies depending on how bad the disease is, where it hurts and how much of an impact it has on your daily life.
Pains in your joints should not be ignored and if you have been experiencing these pains for longer than a few days, don’t ignore them. Your doctor will ask you some questions that will give him more information about the problem. Some questions to be prepared for are how long you have been experiencing the pain, how did it start and what kinds of activities seems to make it worse. Other clues to the problem are what kinds of things makes the pain feel better. For example, you may feel better after a nights sleep.
