Difficulty Moving

Stiffness in the joints surrounding the infected bone is another symptom of osteomyelitis, and it's one that can develop within a day or two of the infection occurring. It is generally somewhat severe, and it can cause sufferers to walk with a pronounced limp or be unable to perform normal physical tasks.

Those who work manual labor jobs or engage in athletics are often quick to notice new stiffness; however, those living a sedentary lifestyle may notice other symptoms first.3‘Osteomyelitis.’ NORD (National Organization for Rare Disorders), National Organization for Rare Disorders, 13 Aug. 2019, rarediseases.org/rare-diseases/osteomyelitis/
