What are the Symptoms of Osteoarthritis of the Knee?

Osteoarthritis is a degenerative disorder that causes the erosion of protective tissue between joints. When it occurs in the knee it affects a person’s ability to be mobile, and to move and bend without pain. What are the symptoms of osteoarthritis of the knee?

Symptoms Directly Related to the Knee

Some of the symptoms of osteoarthritis occur directly in the joint that is affected – in this case the knee. Many people experience pain, stiffness, and swelling in the knee and the area just around the knee. The pain can radiate up into the thigh or down into the shin. Pain might be mild, severe, or anywhere in between. Some people experience so much pain their disease is debilitating. It is possible to treat the pain and swelling associated with osteoarthritis with medication, but some people find that over time more drastic measures are necessary.

In addition to the ongoing pain and swelling, it is also common for people with osteoarthritis to develop bone spurs and to experience a loss of a range of motion. In general, movement of any kind is tough when you are unable to bend your knee joints. Simple, daily tasks become a painful challenge.

Symptoms Caused by Arthritis but Experienced Elsewhere

It is also possible for osteoarthritis in the knee to affect your entire well-being. Many people experience fatigue and over time, might develop depression or anxiety. There are a number of reasons for this. In addition to living with chronic pain, in and of itself something that can trigger depression, but there is also a problem when a person’s quality of life is affected by how he or she feels. If you are constantly in pain it is difficult to participate and take pleasure in life’s activities.

Additionally, many people find they experience anxiety because they have no idea what the future holds. They do not know if their condition will worsen and they are concerned about treating their pain. They might feel anxious about one day needing knee replacement surgery or they might be worried they will be unable to afford the medication and treatment to keep their pain under control. Finally, they are anxious loved ones will lose patience with them and that they will miss out on the best moments in the lives of those they love. 

If you begin to experience any of the symptoms of osteoarthritis or you are struggling emotionally with your condition, it is important to alert your doctor. He or she can provide supportive and healing treatment that will allow you to manage your problem and possibly one day to eliminate it completely.
