10 Symptoms of Scurvy

Symptom #2: Stiff Joints

The older we get, the more aches and pains we experience. Even when we are young, we can still experience stiff joints occasionally, although these will usually only be temporary. With certain illnesses, stiff joints can become a considerable problem, and one such illness is scurvy.

People with scurvy will often feel stiffness and pain in their joints and the level of pain can be quite severe. Even moving a little can be very painful, restricting the patient’s mobility considerably. The good news, though, is that adding some vitamin C to the diet should make the pain go away.
