Arthritis Leg Pain
The joints pain in leg gives rise to swelling in the vicinity of the joint. Inflammation may or may not be seen but it can be felt. The medications having anti-inflammatory effects under medical supervision can be used to reduce the swelling.
Difficulties in Walking
Over a period of time the cartilages and joints in general deteriorate that prevent a person from walking normally. Knees become so painful that one is reluctant to walk.
Joint deterioration with swelling and pain add up to cause stiffness in the leg. Stiffness in the leg may be felt in the morning after sleep or when sitting or standing for too long.
When you are facing painful joint condition two main things happen.
1. The deterioration of joint tissue or cartilage changes the structure of the whole joint. Subsequently rest of the skeletal system is affected as things are connected in the system.
2. This pain in the leg will force you to change the way you walk or sleep.
Another painful joint condition in your body can be arthritis finger. Since each hand has 27 bones, there are number of joints in fingers. Also the normal daily work is dependent on fingers. There are two types of painful joint conditions found in fingers same as found in leg. Also the symptoms of arthritis finger are more or less the same as stated above.
Dealing with arthritis leg pain and painful joint condition in finger requires you to combine therapies and food that reduces inflammation. Reduction in inflammation will bring down the pain.
Lower Back Pain
When you have lower back pain combined with a pain or ache going down the back of one or both legs, you probably have an issue with your sciatic nerve. The sciatic nerve runs down from around the hip area down the buttocks and the back of your legs. Typically when it gets irritated it feels like an ache radiating down the buttocks and it can be on one side or both.
Heat on the painful area combined with rest is the best for this type of back pain, although sciatica pain can be especially stubborn to get relief. Try heating pads, hot water bottles or even a hot shower or bath for relief for your back.
Stretching out those stubborn muscles in your back can also provide some relief, provided you are still flexible enough to do the exercises. If not it’s probably time to speak to your doctor about what the best plan of attack is for managing your back pain which may include heat, exercises and/or medication such as a pain reliever or muscle relaxant.
Visiting the doctor can be an expensive option for some of my readers but realizing when you should seek medical advice can reduce your recovery time. If at any time you feel like this pain is too much, the exercises aren’t working, or your pain is getting worse, it’s time to consult your doctor. There may be something else going on with your back that may need to be addressed.
