There is an invisible civil war raging inside the body of millions of Americans that can go undetected for years. It’s called, chronic inflammation and has been featured on the cover of TIME magazine with the title, “Secret Killer”.
Joint pain, in truth, is more of a symptom than a disease. Joint pain may be accompanied by fever, chills, nausea and vomiting, fatigue and irritability. At times the pain may be so debilitating that it may cause one to toss and turn in bed and spend sleepless nights. The causes of pain in the joint may be listed as follows:
1. Autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis and lupus
2. Osteoarthritis occurring due to cartilage degeneration and formation of bony spurs or osteophytes
4. Septic arthritis or pyarthrosis
5. Sprain and over-strains
7. Bursitis or inflammation of bursae or fluid-filled sacs that couch or cushion joint structure
8. Tendonitis or inflammation of tendons supporting the joint
9. Chondromalacia patellae
11. Aseptic necrosis
12. Plant thorn synovitis
13. Steroid drug withdrawal
14. Torn ACL
15. Sickle cell disease
16. Siogren’s syndrome
17. Illiotibial band syndrome
18. Sacroiliac joint dysfunction
19. Dengue fever
20. Synovial sarcoma
22. Bone tumor
23. Infectious diseases like influenza, hepatitis, measles, mumps, parvovirus, lyme disease, rheumatic fever, rubella, varicella or chicken pox etc.
What causes joint pain? Joint pain refers to any kind of discomfort that occurs where two bones or more come together. This relatively innocuous term can describe anything from minor soreness associated with too much typing to the excruciating pain and inflammation that comes with some forms of cancer and immune disorders. While joint pain usually isn’t an emergency, being able to identify its source can help you determine whether your discomfort is a sign of something more serious.
Repetitive Stress Injuries
As more of the population enters jobs that require the same motions over and over again, the incidence of repetitive stress injuries increases. These injuries include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendinitis and a wide variety of other damage to the joints and the tissues around them. If left alone in their early stages, the majority will heal on their own or through the use of anti-inflammatory supplements and drugs. Longer-term injuries may eventually require surgery or other more serious intervention, however.
This condition is usually associated with old age, but can happen at any time in your life. It’s caused by repeated wear on the cartilage in your joint, which forces the surface of the bones to come into contact. This can be very painful and causes significant inflammation. Taking natural or over the counter anti-inflammatory treatments like NSAIDS or green-lipped mussel powder and fish oil can help you deal with this condition, but the problem is not usually reversible.
Several disorders of the immune system cause the body’s natural defenses to attack its own tissues. These include lupus, rheumatoid arthritis, fibromyalgia and sarcoidosis. There is currently no cure for any of these autoimmune causes of joint pain, but doctors can use anti-inflammatory treatments combined with immunosuppressants to decrease the pain and damage done to the joint.
While joint pain from cancer isn’t very common, it can be a very serious sign. The two cancers that are most likely to cause joint pain are cancer of the bones and metastatic cancers that have spread to the bone. Both damage the bone and create swelling and tenderness accompanied by fatigue. They can also cause bones to break much more easily
