Symptom #2: Stiff Joints

The other symptom most commonly associated with osteoarthritis, as well as other forms of arthritis, is stiffness in the joints. While it’s fairly normal to experience a bit of stiffness in your joints early in the morning, if this becomes a consistent thing throughout the day, it could be a sign of an emerging problem like osteoarthritis.

The joint stiffness is still likely to be worst in the morning for sufferers of osteoarthritis, but fortunately it can be reduced if you power through it and do some stretching exercises in the morning. Make sure you stay fluid during the day and don’t let your joints fall into disuse.
