Joint pain can include discomfort, pain, or inflammation arising from any part of a joint, including cartilage, bone, ligaments, tendons, or muscles. This type of pain is typically related to arthritis or arthralgia, which are an inflammation of the joints, but it can be related to a variety of other conditions, such as cancer, broken bones, regional pain syndrome, gout, lupus, tendinitis, and more. Motion, pressure, or weight-bearing resistance can intensify joint pain and lead to swelling, redness, and tenderness and warmth around the affected joint.
