Osteoarthritis Symptoms Journal

This journal can help you pay attention to what your body and joint aches are saying.

Medically reviewed in June 2021

What's going on with your body? Are your arthritis symptoms getting better or worse? If you have osteoarthritis, it's important to listen up and pay close attention to what your body is saying. Even better, get it all down in writing so you can talk about how you're doing with your healthcare provider. This printable osteoarthritis symptoms journal makes that part easier. Just print a page each week, and use it to keep tabs on symptoms like pain, stiffness, swelling, crunching sounds, or grating sensations. Take a few completed worksheets to your next doctor appointment to discuss your treatment progress.
