For persons who have ever had arthritis or rheumatism in the past 12 months and who had stiffness in their joints when they just got out of bed, ARTHSTIFFTP reports the time period (A.M. or P.M.) for ARTHSTIFFT, which indicates the time when the stiffness goes away.

Users should combine ARTHSTIFFTP with ARTHSTIFFT to indicate the exact time during the day when the stiffness goes away.
