Joint pain, otherwise known as arthralgia, affects thousands of people every day. And to treat it effectively, you first need to understand why your joints started to hurt in the first place.

It can have many faces: from stinging to burning to spreading. It reduces the comfort of life and makes daily functioning more difficult and, in extreme cases, can even lead to disability.

It can cause pain in the joints.

With doctor Kacper Nihalani, we break down the causes of joint pain and suggest what information to give to your orthopaedist to get an accurate diagnosis.

.
.

From this article you will learn:

  • What joints are most commonly affected by pain.
  • .
  • From what joints can hurt.
  • .
  • What information is valuable in making a diagnosis.
  • How joints can be treated.
  • How joint pain can be treated.
  • .
  • How preventive care for the musculoskeletal system looks like.

Which joints hurt the most?

.

Depending on the cause of the pain, one particular joint, a pair of joints (e.g. knees or elbows), joints on one side of the body or... all of them may be bothered. Whether the pain is affecting a specific site or the whole body can be valuable diagnostic information.

The most common complaints of this part of the musculoskeletal system are:

.
  • pain in the joints of the hands and fingers,
  • .
  • pain in the joints of the knees,
  • .
  • joint pain in the foot,
  • .

When looking at your complaints, it is worth noting the exact location of the joint pain - do you feel it on the inside or outside? This is often a criterion that differentiates between different conditions (e.g.  tennis bunion and golfers)and.

Additionally, the complaints accompanying the pain, for example: swelling, fever or joint stiffness, will be helpful information for the specialist. Also pay attention to the circumstances of the pain - does it bother you non-stop? Or is it worse in the morning or only after exercise ?

Causes of joint pain

.

There are indeed many causes of joint pain, so it is not worth diagnosing on your own. The smooth identification of these will determine the implementation of the right treatment to bring you relief. Below you will find information about the most common causes of joint pain. Keep in mind, however, that the catalogue of possible causes is by no means exhaustive.

.

Joints often ache as a result of being overloaded. This can happen to you, for example, when you start a new sport and your body is not used to certain movements. Overloading can also happen to people who work physically or experienced athletes who train very intensively.

One of the most mundane causes of joint and muscle pain is... incorrect posture. Staying in one position for several hours (ah those charms of a sedentary job), on the one hand, and on the other hand, exercising incorrectly (oh, you can hurt yourself). It should be noted, however, that your muscles will start to ache most quickly because of this, but in some cases these symptoms can easily be confused with each otherand.

Sedentary lifestyles and lack of physical activity, and consequently weak muscles, are a simple way to develop joint complaints. Movement stimulates the production of joint fluid and increases joint mobility. When you're active, you're also building up your muscles, which naturally and most effectively stabilise the joint components (orthoses and stabilisers can hide)and.

And if lack of movement and proper workplace ergonomics are not the cause, we are already entering the realm of illness and injury...

Viral and bacterial infections

.

You feel uncomfortable in the evening, and in the morning you open your eyes and cannot get out of bed. Joint and muscle pains are a fairly typical symptom flu virus. They are also usually accompanied by fever and a general feeling of discomfortand.

Joint pain can also occur during an infection COVID-19, especially if accompanied by a dry cough. With symptoms like these, it's worth signing up for a medical teleportation. A specialist can refer you for tests to detect the virusand.

Another of the diseases that can manifest as joint pain is angina. It is caused by the bacteria Streptococcus pyogenes. It most commonly affects children and adolescents; adults suffer from it relatively rarely. Its typical signs are high fever (often above 38°C), no cough and enlarged tonsils and cervical lymph nodesand.

Joint pain can also occur with boreliosis. This is a multisystemic, dangerous, zoonotic disease that can be contracted through a tick bite. Its characteristic symptom is a migrating erythema, which takes the shape of a red ring with a pale centre. However, this skin lesion does not occur in all infectedand.

.

In the course of this disease, arthritis often develops, resulting in pain. So if you find this parasite on your skin, remove it as soon as possible and observe the bitten area closely. If you notice erythema or other worrying symptoms, see your doctor immediatelyand.

.
.

Test the tick

.

A tick that bites you or your loved ones can be sent for free testing for the bacteria (spirochetes) that cause Lyme disease. The condition? You have to provide the parasite up to 3 days after the bite and fill in two questionnaires - one just after the bite and one after 8 weeks. You will get the result for the presence of bacteria after about 10 days. Such services are provided by the Department of Parasitology of the Faculty of Biology at the University of Warsawand. More details can be found on their website.

.

Injuries

.

If you take a spectacular fall off your bike or while skiing and your knee or elbow starts to hurt, you are unlikely to be in any doubt as to the cause of the pain. However, sometimes injuries can be more tricky. There are times when joint pain from an injury will occur when you stand poorly, lift or grab something heavy or simply trip.

Sometimes in such cases it will hurt and stop. For a while. Because after a few hours, or sometimes even the next day, the pain begins, which can be difficult to relate to the injury.

The pain is not as bad as it used to be.

Joint injuries are usually accompanied by swelling. Often there is also a haematoma. In most cases, with injuries the pain is sudden and sharp. Characteristically, you may also hear a snap or crunch at the time of the accidentand.

To this day, my skin suffers when I recall the sound that accompanied the rupture of the joint capsules on an unlucky ankle sprain...

.

Some injuries may carry with them the need to attend the nearest ED (Hospital Emergency Department).

Go to hospital immediately if:

.
    .
  • the pain is incapacitating (you get faint or dark before your eyes),
  • .
  • the limb does not line up properly (it is bent in a strange way),
  • .
  • you cannot move your arm or leg,
  • .
  • the area of injury swells quickly and significantly,
  • .
  • there has been a break in the continuity of the skin (when the wound is deep or its edges have spread),
  • .
.

What is the ED used for?

.

The Hospital Emergency Department is the place where emergency care is provided. It is where people go after accidents, heart attacks and other serious medical conditions. If you fell down while walking your dog a week ago and your wrist hurts, this really isn't the best place to go (yes, such delivers happen in the ED too). With such an injury, go to a specialist at an outpatient clinic.

Degeneration

.

One of the most common causes of joint pain in people over 50 is arthritis. These form as a result of the production of joint lubricant decreasing with age, which leads to the degradation of joint cartilage. When the cartilage wears away, the surfaces of the bones begin to rub against each other and are destroyedand.

As a result of this destruction, there is an overbuilding of bone tissue - new blood vessels form in the bone and cells multiply in excessive numbers. Osteophytes are formed, i.e. beaks and bony protrusions on the joint surface. These make movement difficult and often cause painand.

Rheumatic diseases

.

Rheumatic diseases are a group of conditions with an autoimmune basis, which is when the body starts attacking its own tissues. The exact causes of autoimmune diseases are not yet known, but it is known that they are based on a malfunction of the immune system. It treats healthy cells in the body as if they were damaged versions or pathogensand.

One of the most common autoimmune diseases that causes joint pain is rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Other examples include psoriatic arthritis or rheumatic feverand.

Rheumatic diseases, although they can mainly manifest as joint and muscle pain, are often multi-system ailments. This means that they can also affect other organs - such as the lungs, heart or kidneysand.

Gouturitic gout

.

Goutaine gout is also a rheumatic disease. Although at first glance it is not associated with joints, it can be the cause of joint pain. As a result of metabolic abnormalities, sodium urate crystals are deposited in the body's tissues. These tend to accumulate in the joints, causing great discomfort when movingand.

.

Joint pain in pregnancy

.

Joint pain in advanced pregnancy is a fairly common complaint of mothers-to-be and, contrary to appearances, is not at all related to increasing body weight. The woman's body secretes relaxin, a hormone that causes the ligaments and tendons to relax. This allows the body to slightly shift its parts to make room for the enlarging uterusand.

This internal tidying up, in turn, can lead to slight changes in the alignment of the joints and the pressures exerted on them. And this is the reason why joints can suddenly start to ache in pregnancy .

Diagnosis of joint pain

.

As you can see, the causes of painful joints can be really many. Therefore, it is very important to make a correct diagnosis - only this will enable you to apply the right treatment. So never try to diagnose yourself. That's what a specialist is for.

With painful joints, it is best to see an orthopaedist (unless, of course, it is an infection - in which case go to your GP). If he or she concludes that your joint pains may have rheumatic causes, he or she will refer you to a rheumatologist.

To help ease joint pain, go to a specialist.

To help your doctor make an accurate diagnosis, it is a good idea to prepare answers to a few questions:

  • Whether the pain affects one, several or all joints:
  • .
  • Where exactly does the joint hurt (on the side, front, back, inside or outside)?
  • Where does the joint hurt?
  • Does the time of day affect the intensity of the pain?
  • .
  • Does the pain occur or increase when moving the joint?
  • Does the pain occur after prolonged periods of rest (e.g. sitting)?
  • Does the pain occur after prolonged periods of rest?
  • Is the pain accompanied by other symptoms: joint stiffness, swelling, fever?
  • .

The more precise information you are able to provide, the more likely it is that you will be referred for appropriate tests and that an accurate diagnosis will be made. It is this that is the key to implementing the appropriate treatment and getting rid of or alleviating your complaints.

The more precise information you can provide, the more likely you are to be referred to the appropriate tests and given an accurate diagnosis.

ANA (anti-nuclear antibodies)

Test.

When a specialist suspects an autoimmune cause of your joint pain, they may refer you for an ANA test. This blood test, which checks for specific immune system cells - antinuclear antibodiesand.

These cells attack the nuclei of healthy cells and are one of the body's characteristic abnormal responses in conditions such as lupus, systemic scleroderma or Sjögren's syndrome .

Treatment of painful joints

.

The treatment of joint pain will depend on its cause. If the discomfort is caused by a viral or bacterial disease - treatment will come down to eradicating the pathogens, while pain relief will be provided by painkillers.

In the case of injuries, the pain will be relieved.

In the case of injuries, treatment methods may include drug treatment, cold compresses, but also immobilisation of the limb, rehabilitation and even surgery. The same will be true for degenerative changes - it all depends on the extent of damage within the jointand.

In addition to the above methods, injections of collagenhyaluronic acid or steroids .

are also used to treat arthritis.

The most complex is certainly the treatment of joint pain of rheumatic origin. For these diseases, immunosuppressive drugs, i.e. drugs that reduce the activity of the immune system, are primarily applicable. Biological treatment is also possible, but in Poland this is not part of the standard treatment at the National Health Fundand.

.
.

Tablets and ointments for joint pain

.

Remember that most tablets and ointments that you can purchase over-the-counter will only mask the symptoms and not tackle the cause of your joint pain. Therefore, they should not be used as the sole treatmentand. Although, of course, these preparations can make your daily life easier.

.

Prevention in joint disease

.

Prevention is better than cure - an old but very true saying. To keep your joints in good shape, it's worth remembering a balanced diet, full of vegetables and fruit. Choose lean meat, fish and vegetable fats. Meanwhile, avoid eating large amounts of red meat, sweets and processed foodsand.

This diet minimises the risk of chronic inflammation, which very often accompanies joint disease. In this regard, valuable properties are demonstrated in particular omega-3 acids.

. What helps with joint stiffness?.

For joint stiffness, one of the things that will help you is to regularly do exercises that strengthen the muscles around your joints and those that will improve their flexibility. Try exercises such as cycling, resistance training, yoga or swimming.

Additionally a diet rich in nutrients such as vitamin Dvitamin Comega-3 acids and collagen, can have a beneficial effect on joint health. It is also important to avoid or limit the intake of foods that are rich in trans fats and increase inflammation, such as unhealthy snacks and highly processed foods.

. What herbs for joint pain?.

Supportively, for joint pain you can try herbs such as:

.

Curcumin: Add to your diet turmeric, which contains curcumin - a compound with anti-inflammatory effects.

Ginger: Take advantage of the anti-inflammatory properties of ginger, which can help relieve joint pain. Make yourself an infusion of a piece of ginger and water, and drink it twice a day.

Rosemary.

Rosemary: External application of rosemary oil can relieve joint pain. Mix a few drops of rosemary oil with a carrier such as coconut oil and apply to painful joints.

. Where are the joints?.

Joints are located wherever your body bends. So you have them in your hands: fingers, wrists, elbows, arms and shoulders, and in your legs: hips, knees, ankles and toes.

The next place where joints are found is in the spine - you will find intervertebral joints, distributed practically along its length.

. How do joints hurt?.

Joints can hurt in many ways. Often it is a sharp, stabbing pain, but it can also be a burning sensation or a feeling of the joint bursting from the inside. In addition, the pain can spread not only in the joint, but also around it.

. What do joints hurt from?.

There are many causes of joint pain. Most commonly (especially in young people), joint pain can be linked to overload or, conversely, to staying in one position for too long. Trauma is also a frequent cause.

.

In older people, joint pain can be caused by degenerative changes or rheumatic diseases.

.
. What is good for joint pain?.

In addition to the treatment prescribed by a specialist, you can support yourself in the fight against joint pain by using cold compresses (short-term) or appropriate dietary supplements (long-term). Particularly valuable are preparations with collagenhyaluronic acid and glucosamine and chondroitin.

An example collagen for joints is Natu.Care's premium collagen - with high-quality collagen hydrolysate derived from wild-caught fish.

Another product that can help you with joint pain, especially that associated with inflammation, will be omega-3 acids. This is because they exhibit anti-inflammatory effects. Check out Premium Omega-3 from Natu.Care - with the best-absorbed form of triglycerides and a decent daily serving.

. Which doctor treats joint pain?.

Most often with joint pain you need to be referred to an orthopaedist. If this specialist considers that your complaints may be related to rheumatic diseases, then he or she will refer you to a rheumatologist. In some cases, you may also be referred to a neurologist - especially if the pain is related to the spine.
