Exercise. In general no matter what type of muscle or joint pain you have exercise is a major part of your therapy. Medications have to be more specific to the diagnosis so one can not give a blanket recommendation.
Pain. Stretching, heat from a shower or heating pad (don't get burned), massage, & acupuncture can help. Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDS) can help with both pain relief and in reducing inflammation. Examples are ibuprofen (like Advil, Nuprin or Motrin), Naproxen sodium (like Aleve, (naproxen) Naprosyn, Anaprox) or Asprin (such as Bayer, Ecotrin, Ascriptin). Avoid NSAID's if pregnant or allergic.
Yes. Yes it can.
No. 24 yo asks if "anxiety" causes "joint pain". Anxiety originates in the mind & reflects psychologic effects of mental processes. Joint pain originates in soft tissue pain transducers within tendons & ligaments surrounding joints. Persons w. greater anxiety intensity might subjectively experience & report "greater" joint pain; whether they do is an unmeasurable & unprovable theoretical speculation.
The anatomy. A joint is a joint and muscle is muscle.
Hey, I've had these hives that come and go since the beginning of october. Also muscle pain that comes and goes as well as joint pain. Please help.
Allergic. Medical consultation and formal allergy testing with a thorough exam should answer your issues.
Can chronic salmonella typhoid cause migratory joint pain? I never had acute illness. Joint and muscle pain comes and goes and is migratory.
Migratory joint pain. Studies show that a migratory polyarthritis has a panoply of causes. A careful history and physical exam are indicated promptly. Typhoid fever could cause a reactive arthritis but several questions need to be asked over a series of visits and lab tests to determine your diagnosis. Several etiologies including vascular, infectious, inflammatory, autoimmune, metabolic, idiopathic, neoplastic, etc.
My wife is suffering from RA and the same is under control. No joint pain but on medition. Muscle pain and mild swelling in right arm. Reason?
Probably unrelated. If the disease is well controlled, it is likely to be unrelated. You did not mentioned what meds your wife is taking so I cannot comment on that area.
Had ANA, ENA panel, FBC done 4 months ago due to joint pain, muscle pain, facial rash, fatigue but all neg/normal. Still ill, should I get retested?
No. Multiple retests will give you the same results.
Diagnosed w/mono 4 yrs ago, lymes a yr later. Still have symptoms and now experiencing joint pain, muscle pain, hair loss. Can it be something else?
Yes. Your symptoms don't sound like either mono or lyme disease. I suggest that you start fresh, probably with a new doctor, to find out what is causing your current symptoms. There are many possibilities, including lupus or thyroid disease.
Burning tongue sensation? Also joint and muscle pain everwhere. H.pylori diagnosed a month ago, treated 3 weeks ago. Could I be missing nutrients causing muscle and joint pain, dizziness, burnt tong?
Burning tongue. If part of your treatment for h. Pylori included biaxin, (clarithromycin) this is a possible cause of the burning tongue discomfort. Try bathing your tongue with maalox or apply glyoxide drops to it. In addition, take mutivitamin and extra vitamin B 12. If symptoms persist, see your physician who will order appropriate blood tests.
Possibly... what antibiotic and how long was it taken? Must consider a yeast infection secondary to antibiotic use. Consider consulting with a Functional Medicine specialist, and a Nutritionist.
See doctor. Assuming that you had finished you H pylori treatment about 2 weeks ago and symptoms started around then, you may have something like a "serum-sickness" type of reaction to one of the drugs which may last for 1-3 weeks. Burning tongue may be from a fungal infection from the antibiotics used. Nonetheless this is not a common response and thus you should contact your doctor to make sure.
I have a positive ana, ena and anti ssa/ro along with joint pain, muscle pain, fatigue and numbness. How likely is it that I have SLE?
SLE. All these are signs of some inflammatory disease of which SLE is one type. There are other markers to further identify the specific type of disease, and along with a complete physical exam and some tissue studies may pin down a specific diagnosis. However, there is no one specific test that marks SLE conclusively.
