What is arthralgia?
Symptoms can include:
- Back pain
- Loss of spine flexibility
- Inflammation of the eyes, lungs and heart valves
- Swelling and stiffness of the spine and sacroiliac joints
Diagnosis requires careful clinical evaluation.
For non-arthritis joint pain, rest and exercise can help, as can warm baths, massage and stretching exercises. On the advice of a physician, anti-inflammatory medications may help relieve pain and swelling.
