Though some joint pain is related to serious health conditions, that’s not the case for all joint pain.

Some things that can cause joint pain, according to the National Institutes of HealthOff Site Icon (NIH), include:

Autoimmune diseases, including lupus and rheumatoid arthritis
Bursitis
Gout
Injury, including fractures
Osteoarthritis
Osteomyelitis (a bone infection)
Septic arthritis (a joint infection)
Tendinitis
Unusual overuse, including sprains and strains
Viral infections

Joint pain is discomfort that arises from any joint. Joint pain is sometimes called arthralgia. There are many different causes of joint pain.

Most causes of joint pain are harmless and resolve without any long-term problems. However, some causes of joint pain require treatment for a long time and cause long-term joint problems.

Note: some causes of joint pain require urgent treatment. For example:

If you have an infection in a joint (septic arthritis) then you will need to be seen in hospital as an emergency.
If you are thought to have rheumatoid arthritis then you will need an urgent appointment with a specialist because starting treatment early will reduce the risk of long-term problems.
