Joint Pain May Cause Fatigue

What causes Joint Pain Fatigue? The answer is anything from a sprained ankle to lupus. There are many conditions between the two, arthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, herniated disc, degenerative disc disease, etc., etc. The one thing they have in common is PAIN. I think we can all agree with that statement. Therefore I think we can safely say joint pain can cause fatigue.

If your body is experiencing pain you are using energy tiring to compensate for it. The muscles tense up, respiration increases or decreases which consumes energy. In addition you do not eat properly, so you do not get the proper nutrition that supplies your body with the essential muscular enhancements that help control pain.

Exercising is out of the question when you are experiencing severe pain.

Sleep patterns may be interrupted. You may wake up at different times of the night if your body is experiencing pain. Sometimes a person may have to sleep in a recliner or chair because of the pain caused when laying horizontally. When sleeping in a vertical position the body can suffer from fluid retention, which causes weight gain, even if you are eating properly. This fluid could become life threatening should it settle around your heart or lungs.

Your thought patterns are effected which could result in anger or depression. This could lead to arguments with friends and family members. You may even have passing thoughts of suicide if the pain is serve enough. Get help immediately should the thought of suicide become persistent

The list is endless. I should know because it happened to myself. So let's get you out of pain and get some relief.

Below is a short list to help get you on your way.

1. Go visit your doctor. If you are not getting the proper results from your primary care provider, visit another one. Keep searching until you find one that can help.

2. Eat properly, try to avoid processed foods and eat an abundant supply of vegetables, fruits and nuts. Your doctor can assist you in selecting the proper diet that would be the most beneficial for you.

3. Exercise, I know that sounds scary but do as much as you can comfortably do. Don't over do it. Start out slow and built up as you go along.

4. If you smoke, quit. There are many alternative methods to help you these days.

5. Sleep and rest. Try to establish a regular sleep pattern that you can follow each and every night the same way.

6. A good primary care provider can help you with the suggestions I mentioned above. Write any questions down that you may have before you go, so you will not forget to ask when you arrive.

7. Pray, even if you don't believe, why not just act (as if) there was a God. You just might be surprised. with the results you get.
