Arthritis is inflammation of one or more of your joints. Early symptoms of arthritis of the hand include joint pain that may feel “dull,” or a “burning” sensation. The arthritis pain often occurs after periods of increased joint use, such as heavy gripping or grasping.
The pain may not be present immediately, but may show up hours later or even the following day. It is often worse in the mornings and after a period of inactivity (orthoinfo.aaos.org).
When the joints are affected by arthritis, activities of daily living can be difficult. Arthritis can occur in many areas of the hand and wrist.
Weakness in your hands can make it hard to do even the simplest everyday tasks, such as opening jars.
