  • Acute Pain: An acute condition which results in the sensation of distress, or agony due to stimulation of nerve endings
  • Aging: The medical conditions from getting older.
  • Alkaptonuria: A rare inherited metabolic disease characterized by homogentisic aciduria, arthritis and ochronosis. Symptoms include darkening of urine, alkinization due to overproduction of homogentisic acid, arthritis in the large joints and black ochronotic pigmentation of cartilage and collagen tissue. However, many of these symptoms may not occur until middle age. The condition may also be caused by chronic phenol poisoning.
  • Arthritis: A condition which is characterized by the inflammation of a joint
  • Arthritis-like symptoms: A condition which is characterized by symptoms which mimic that of arthritis
  • Body symptoms: Symptoms affecting the entire body features.
  • Bone symptoms: Symptoms affecting the body's bones
  • Brain symptoms: Symptoms affecting the brain
  • Bunion: A bunion is a painful swelling of the soft tissue, and bone enlargement over the inside of the ball of the big toe. Often the big toe will look as if it is bent in towards the other toes or even can lie across them.
  • Chondrocalcinosis 1: A very rare genetic disorder characterized by progressive osteoarthritis which starts relatively early and is progressive. Joint damage is caused by deposits of crystals containing calcium.
  • Chondrocalcinosis 2: A very rare genetic disorder characterized by progressive osteoarthritis. Joint damage is caused by deposits of crystals containing calcium.
  • Chondrocalcinosis familial articular: A very rare genetic disorder characterized by osteoarthritis which starts relatively early and is progressive. Joint damage is caused by deposits of crystals containing calcium.
  • Common symptoms: The most common symptoms
  • Diabetes-like symptoms: Symptoms similar to those of diabetes
  • Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type 3: A rare genetic connective tissue disorder characterized by lax joints, hyperextensible skin and mild connective tissue fragility - a mild form of the condition.
  • Ehlers-Danlos syndrome type III: A rare genetic connective tissue disorder characterized by lax joints, hyperextensible skin and mild connective tissue fragility - a mild form of the condition.
  • Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, arthrochalasic type: A rare genetic connective tissue disorder characterized by hyperextensible and fragile skin and hypermobile joints which leads to dislocations, osteoarthritis and fractures - previously known as EDS types 7A and 7B.
  • Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, hypermobility type: A rare genetic connective tissue disorder characterized by hypermobile joints, hyperextensible skin and - previously known as EDS type 3.
  • Gout: Painful joints, most commonly the big toe.
  • Head symptoms: Symptoms affecting the head or brain
  • Hemochromatosis: Excess of iron leading to problems with joints, liver, heart and pancreas.
  • Hip dysplasia: A dislocation of the hip at birth or a hip joint that dislocates easily.
  • Inflammatory symptoms: Symptoms related to inflammation.
  • Injury: Any damage inflicted in the body
  • Joint Pain: Pain affecting the joints
  • Joint injury: An injury to any joint in the body. The larger limb joints tend to be the most utilized and are hence more prone to injuries. Severity of symptoms varies depending on the type and location of injury and often the primary symptom is pain. A joint injury can involve damage to the bones, ligaments or other tissues of the joint. The injury may be acute (e.g. trauma) or chronic (e.g. overuse).
  • Joint pain: Pain affecting the joints
  • Joint redness: The appearance of redness located over a joint
  • Joint symptoms: Symptoms affecting the joints.
  • Larsen syndrome: A rare genetic disorder characterized by multiple joint dislocation, a flat face and short fingernails.
  • Lupus: chronic autoimmune disease that can be fatal, though with recent medical advances, fatalities are becoming increasingly rare.
  • Multiple epiphyseal dysplasia: A rare genetic disorder characterized by short stature and limb, joint and hip abnormalities which become evident from two to 10 years.
  • Musculoskeletal symptoms: Symptoms affecting muscles or bones of the skeleton.
  • Nail-Patella Syndrome: A rare inherited disorder characterized by small or absent kneecap and ridged and/or absent nails as well as other abnormalities
  • Nerve symptoms: Symptoms affecting the nerves
  • Neurological symptoms: Any symptoms that are caused by neurological conditions
  • Obesity: Excessive body weight especially fat.
  • Osteochondritis Dissecans: A rare condition caused by an interruption of the blood supply to section of bone in a joint which can result in a piece of bone breaking off and causing pain. The knee is most often affected but it can occur in ankles and elbows.
  • Pain: Any type of pain sensation symptoms.
  • Pituitary cancer, childhood: Cancer (malignant) of the pituitary gland in children. The pituitary gland produces various hormones and some pituitary tumors (functioning tumors) can affect the secretion of one or more of these hormones resulting in a range of symptoms depending on the exact location of the tumor. Some pituitary tumors do not affect hormone production (nonfunctioning tumors).
  • Pituitary tumors, adult: A benign or cancer tumor that develops in the tissue of the pituitary gland in adults. The pituitary gland produces various hormones and some pituitary tumors (functioning tumors) can affect the secretion of one or more of these hormones resulting in a range of symptoms depending on the exact location of the tumor. Some pituitary tumors do not affect hormone production (nonfunctioning tumors).
  • Rheumatoid arthritis: An autoimmune inflammatory condition which primarily affects the joints
  • Satoyoshi syndrome: A very rare syndrome characterized by alopecia, diarrhea, skeletal abnormalities and painful leg cramps caused by physical exercise or emotional stress.
  • Sensations: Changes to sensations or the senses
  • Sensory symptoms: Symptoms affecting the sensory systems.
  • Skeletal symptoms: Symptoms affecting the skeletal system such as the bones.
  • Spondyloepiphyseal dysplasia tarda: A rare genetic disorder characterized by short stature and skeletal abnormalities which are usually not apparent before 12 years.
  • Stiff joints: Reduced mobility or movement of the joints
  • Stiffness: Reduced mobility or movement
  • Systemic lupus erythematosus: chronic autoimmune disease that can be fatal, though with recent medical advances, fatalities are becoming increasingly rare.

  • Wilson's disease: Wilson disease, or hepatolenticular degeneration, is a neurodegenerative disease of copper metabolism.
