Migrating Joint Pain

By Margaret Savorente

Those who suffer from migrating joint pain feel pain in multiple joints that either progress from joint to joint, or afflict multiple joints simultaneously at a time. Doctors define the types of pain as acute and sub acute and connect this condition to many kinds of illnesses or potential trauma. In regards to rheumatoid arthritis, those who suffer with this chronic, systemic, inflammatory illness.can feel migrating joint pain in many different areas of the body. In the beginning, the affected joints may only feel stiff intermittently. For example, pain will occur when the individual gets up in the morning. This can progress to more constant pain, especially in the joints of the wrists, knees, elbows, and ankles. In the case of systemic lupus erythematous, which is an inflammatory infectious tissue disease that bears some similarities to rheumatoid arthritis, migrating joint pain is very common. Other causes of migrating joint pain can be metabolic. Metabolic disorders can cause monarticular (single-joint) and polyarticular (multi-joint) pain. In addition, viruses from the common cold and influenza to chicken pox, German measles, and herpes simplex can result in migrating joint pain. Inflammation caused by Crohn's disease can lead to several different kinds of arthritis affecting any area of the body. Joints are typically painful when the digestive system is being compromised. Pain because of migratory arthritis can be experienced for days or even weeks and tends to abate with the recession of overactive autoimmune function.

There are many other medical conditions that result in joint pain, but it is more important to learn what to do about it.

Migratory joint pain can be treated using a number of different herbal remedies. Actea spicata is a natural herbal supplement that can help with migrating joint pain in the feet and hands, and with any swelling and stiffness. Apis Mellifica, another potentially helpful remedy can be taken three times daily to reduce joint pain and to bring down any inflammation. Arctium can also help. This herb supports supports the reduction of nerve pain as well. This herb is taken four times a day to get the best pain relief.

Health care providers believe that Belladonna can be very effective in treating migrating joint pain, but ask your doctor first. This herb is helpful when joints are inflamed and painful. Berberis vulgaris is a holistic remedy that lowers joint pain in the knees. It is suggested to take this more than once a day for best results.

When your migrating joint pain increases with activity, you may want to try a remedy with Bryonia Alba a few times a day to limit your discomfort. Reports show that Dulcamarta also works well when taken frequently for acute pain. Chamomilla is recommended to help you move more fluidly again.

Migrating joint pain can take over every part of every day life. When this pain strikes, moving around and performing normal activities can become impossible, leading to a cycle that creates even more discomfort.

When you are in a lot of pain, you can't move as freely. In turn, when you don't move, the joint discomfort, swelling and stiffness gets even worse. Exercise could help to keep the joints flexible, but when we are in pain, many of us won't exercise at all, and this is a big mistake. Be sure to talk to your physician about exercises that target migrating joint pain.

There are many choices when it comes to supplements for healthy joints targeting migrating joint pain. A good quality joint remedy should have glucosamine to assist the body in rebuilding cartilage tissue, and antioxidants that will reduce free radical damage of tissue.
