Reasons Behind Your Pain!

painWhen You Have Pain Everywhere

Muscle pain that affects a small part of your body is usually caused by overuse like exercising or working out for long hours —  for example. Or it could be a minor injury, like a bruised shoulder after a fall. But when you pain all over your body, it’s more possibility of an infection, illness, or medicine you’ve taken.

The Chronic Cough

When a flu virus hits, it brings on fever and congestion, and it can make pain in your muscles , especially in your back, legs, and arms. It usually gets better on its own in a week , but consult your doctor if it doesn’t. You also should visit him if you have other health problems along with chronic cold and cough.

Blood Circulation Problem

If you have pain in your arms, legs, or both, your muscles may not be getting enough blood due to circulation problems. At first, you may notice it only when you exercise, but in time, you might feel it when you sit or walk. This is usually caused by a condition called arteriosclerosis, which is when there’s blockage in the veins that carry blood to your muscles.

Rheumatoid Arthritis

This is also an autoimmune disease — it mainly affects your joints and can lead to bone loss. It can cause pain and inflammation all over your body, and your joints may swell into odd shapes. Medication and physical therapy can help with your symptoms, but there’s no cure. In some cases, you may need surgery to repair the affected joints.

Fibromyalgia

This condition can cause pain in your joints and muscles as well as problems with sleep, mood, and memory. Scientists think it happens when your brain takes normal, mild pain signals and mistakenly makes them worse. It may be triggered by illness, surgery, or severe mental stress. Medicine can ease symptoms, and exercise and relaxation techniques like yoga may help, too.

Chronic Fatigue Syndrome

The main symptom of this condition is extreme tiredness (fatigue) that can’t be explained. It might get worse with exercise or mental strain, but rest doesn’t make it better. You also may have muscle pain, memory problems, sore throat, joint pain, and headaches, and you may not be able to sleep well. There’s no cure, but medication and physical therapy can help manage your symptoms.

Medications

Drugs called statins are used to control high cholesterol, and about 30% of people who take them say they have muscle pain. If this is happening with you, talk to your doctor. She may be able to give you a different medication.
