Diffuse Joint Pain

Diffuse Joint Pain

There could be several different reasons for the pain in your joints:

Wear and tear: Osteoarthritis (OA) is a degenerative condition caused by the wear and tear and eventual loss of the cartilage surrounding the joint for injury, fracture, cartilage damage, tendonitis or sprain.

Autoimmune Disorders: Autoimmune Disorders in which a person’s body produces antibodies against its own body tissues, can also produce joint pain – e.g. Rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and Systemic Lupus Erythematosus (SLE).

Inflammation of the joint: Septic arthritis caused by bacterial inflammation of the joint may arise locally or may be carried to the joint from another area of infection, through the bloodstream. Infections such as Lyme disease, mumps, rubella, influenza, hepatitis, measles, and rheumatic fever may also cause joint inflammation.

Metabolic Disorders: Metabolic disorders such as gout and pseudogout, in which materials are deposited into the joints, can cause pain and inflammation.

Bone Diseases: Bone diseases such as osteomyelitis and Paget’s disease can cause diffuse joint pain.
Tumors and cancers: Tumors and cancers near a joint can affect the joint and produce pain.

The nature and severity of your joint pain symptoms will depend to a great extent on the cause. If the joint pain is due to inflammatory disorders such as injury or forms of arthritis, symptoms may include:

  • Fever
  • Redness
  • Swelling of the joint
  • Morning stiffness in the joint
  • Stiffness of the joint after long periods of rest

If the pain is caused by non-inflammatory disorders, symptoms may include:

  • Limited morning stiffness in the joint
  • Exacerbation of pain with exercise
  • Relief from pain with rest

If you are also experiencing symptoms such as fatigue and weight loss, the pain could be triggered by an underlying infectious disease and you should talk to Innovative Healthcare.
