Having arthritis in a dream may indicate that you lack the desire or ability to move forward with your purpose or cannot act on your dreams for fulfillment.
The inflamed joints associated with arthntis may suggest an aggravation that is crippling an individual’s ability to act. Arthritis may also appear as a sign of a possible illness, which may need to be medically treated.
To dream of having arthritis actually means that your problems are very minor and should not be stressed about.
Dreams of arthritis symbolize that you are having difficulty asking for what you really want, that you are resisting reaching for your dreams and that you may be feeling undeserving of your aspirations.
