Arthritis. Fight it. Manage Pain. Extra-articular features of joint disease(23) Cutaneous nodules Cutaneous vasculitis lesions Lymphadenopathy Oedema Ocular inflammation Urethritis Tenosynovitis (tendon sheath effusions) Bursitis (swollen bursa) Diarrhea Orogenital ulceration Just as there are different types of arthritis, there are also different types of pain. Even your own pain may vary from day to day. Each person needs a pain management plan. What works for one person may not work for someone else. You may need to try several different treatments before you find the one that works for you. Long-lasting pain, like the kind that accompanies osteoarthritis, is different. While it tells you that something is wrong, it often isn't as easy to relieve. Managing this type of pain is essential to enhance your quality of life and sense of well-being. Many people with arthritis have found that by learning and practicing pain management skills, they can reduce their pain.
