There is an obvious link between poor sleep and arthritis pain. Arthritis pain can make it difficult for a person to get a good night’s rest and the less sleep a person gets, the more pain they will feel, and so on goes the cycle.
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), arthritis affects 54.4 million adults in the United States. Arthritis can cause pain, aching, stiffness, and swelling around the joints. All of which can prevent a person from getting restful sleep.
In a 2015 study, it was found that 31% of people with arthritis have trouble falling asleep and 81% have trouble staying asleep. Sleep problems in people with arthritis may result in a depressed mood and functional disability.
