Top Arthritis Pain Secrets

There are a number of supplements available for arthritis pain that offer safe relief free of side effects. Nerve Renew has been shown to work for many arthritis sufferers as well as those who have neuropathy. It's important to note that there are five kinds of arthritis, all of which can become painful and debilitating. Sadly, arthritis can plague anyone! Even the healthiest of athletes can develop arthritis.

Today, we'll take a look at the different kinds of arthritis and we'll review their corresponding symptoms.

1-Osteoarthritis

This is by far the most common form of arthritis, it's caused by “wear and tear” on the joints. It's also known as degenerative joint disease. Many people who are obese develop osteoarthritis since obesity puts extra weight on the joints. Every pound of body weight creates 5 pounds of pressure on the back! It's reported that the knees, hips, feet, and spine are most commonly affected by osteoarthritis. Movements become painful because the cartilage starts to wear off from teh friction of the bones rubbing together, resulting in the decrease of cartilage and joint tissue. Additionally, spurs or bumps can also manifest on the feet and fingers. Spurs are calcium deposits which form protrusions. These are usually painless with the exception of those on the heels. Unfortunately, osteoarthritis tends to worsen with the progression of time.

The symptoms of osteoarthritis are usually deep aching pain, morning stiffness, pain when walking or bending over, and even pain doing seemingly simple things like combing your hair. In some cases, the joints can feel warm to the touch as they become swollen and hard to move. Nerve Renew does seem to offer relief for those who are plagued with osteoarthritis.

It's recommended that you exercise and stay active. Many people resort to water exercises and walking. Bone broth is also highly recommended because the collagen is said to help the joints. Needless to say, it's best to avoid non alkaline foods such as refined carbs, sugars, and processed foods to avoid inflammation.

2-Rheumatoid Arthritis

This is an autoimmune condition in which the body targets its own joints leading to inflammation. Most people report that the condition tends to flare up and recede before flaring up again. If not treated it can result in joint damage, hormonal changes, nerve damage and in some case inflammation of the blood vessels. It is said that 20% of those who have rheumatoid arthritis will develop lumps or nodules under the skin on areas like the knuckles, elbows, or heels, in some cases these nodules can be the size of walnuts. Rheumatoid arthritis or RA is more severe than the more common osteoarthritis.

While doctors don't know the exact cause of rheumatoid arthritis it is believed that the immune system is hijacked by a virus or bacteria that targets the joints and later spreads to other areas of the body.

The symptoms are pain, stiffness, and swelling in the shoulders, elbows, wrists, feet, jaw, neck, and hands. Interestingly, there is a symmetry meaning that when knuckles are swollen on the left hand they'll also become swollen on the right hand. The morning stiffness or stiffness after rest periods can last for several hours. Some sufferers also report fatigue and loss of appetite. Many people with Rheumatoid arthritis have reported an improvement in their symptoms when taking Nerve Renew, a natural supplement.

3-Psoriatic Arthritis

Psoriatic arthritis is marked by the presence of itchy and painful patches of red and white scaly skin on different parts of the body such as the elbows, knees, scalp, and sometimes even the navel. It's important to note that less than 30% of people who have psoriasis will develop psoriatic arthritis.

Psoriatic arthritis can be asymmetrical, it can affect joints on just one side or on both sides of your body. So, you could have it in just one knee or a few joints. The signs and symptoms of psoriatic arthritis can sometimes resemble those of rheumatoid arthritis and both diseases cause the joints to become painful, swollen, and warm to the touch.

Some of the most common symptoms reported by those who are plagued with psoriatic arthritis include swollen fingers, toes, pain in the tendons, sole, heals, and lower back.  There are also cases in which the fingernails become discolored. This kind of arthritis seems to start between the ages of 30 and 50.

Psoriasis itself is not indicative of psoriatic arthritis, but those with psoriatic arthritis usually start with psoriasis.  Hot Espom Salt baths may provide some relief by reducing inflammation. Turmeric supplements may also provide some relief to those who suffer from psoriatic arthritis.

4- Gout

When your body is acidic there is a greater chance that the uric acid that would normally be flushed through the kidneys to the urine is deposited into the blood stream. This means that your kidneys cannot keep up and acid builds up forming crystals the foot joints causing intense pain. Most people report waking up with sharp and sudden pain usually after a night of heavy drinking. In some cases it can be brought on by stress and drugs. Generally, gout will last between 3 to 10 days but if not addressed can lead to kidney damage later in life.

The symptoms come on quite quickly and manifest as intense joint pain. In some cases the knees, wrists, fingers and elbows can also develop gout. There are also some cases in which people report a lingering pain even after the sharp pain of gout subsides. The joints will be red, swollen, tender and painful to move.

The best way to overcome gout is by alkalizing the body. If you have a juicer, try to juice some celery and drink the juice or you can purchase celery seed extract. Avoid meats and drink lots of water to help flush your system. Unsweetened black cherry juice as well as unsweetened  cranberry juice is reported to help alleivate the pain of gout. Both of these juices are very cleansing to the kidneys. Burdock root (can be taken in capsule) has also shown to provide relief.

5-Lupus

This from of arthritis is also called SLE or systemic lupus erythematosus. Both the joints and organs are affected by this immune disease. The immune system creates inflammation and pain and it is unable to fight viruses or bacteria.  The pain and swelling can strike any part of the body and in some cases there can even be inflammation in the brain. Lupus is more common among African American women of childbearing age

The symptoms usually include painful swollen joints with headaches, fatigue and rashes across the cheeks known as “butterfly” rashes. Sufferers also report sensitivity to the sun, hair loss, mouth sores, and in some cases anemia with very low levels of platelets and white blood cells. Some also report chest pain because there can be inflammation of the lining around the heart and lungs.

Arthritis and Arthritis Pain – The Painful Combination

While there is a myriad of medications for arthritis, many have side effects that can affect the liver over the long term. Many people seeking relief from arthritis adjust their diets to include more alkaline foods like dark leafy green vegetables and fruits. Bathing in hot water with Epsom salt also seems to provide some relief for arthritis sufferers. Others will seek out massages with peanut oil, which is known to provide topical relief for inflammation. Many people use and recommend Nerve Renew which was formerly known as Neuropathic Support Formula .
