I'm a 19 year old female.Whenever I use the hot tub (never for more than 10-15 minutes), my knees become stiff and it hurts to bend them when i put on my pants. This stiffness goes away within the hour. I have also noticed that this same thing happens when I take a very hot shower. Everything I have found on google recommends using the hot tub for still muscles or joints, but does anyone have the opposite effect? I know this is a Rheumatoid Arthritis forum but I'm curious as to whether this might be the start of arthritis?

I have experienced that as well, but offhand can't remember (if I ever knew) the reason behind it.
I wouldn't worry about it being a sign of RA if you don't have other issues. If you're sitting still in the hot tub, the heat and lack of movement might just be the culprit.
