In this article, we will talk about some health issues that can cause severe pain.
This health problem refers to problems in connections between bones (joints) and it is very common in individuals who are older than fifty five. Today we know that arthritis can be caused by different reasons and due to that, several types of arthritis are known. Osteoarthritis is the most frequent type of arthritis, and it is usually caused by injury, inflammation or old age. There are also types of arthritis that are autoimmune, such as rheumatoid and psoriatic arthritis. Septic arthritis is developed due to infection of the joints, while gout is a form of arthritis developed by accumulation of certain chemicals in joints.
This condition results in problems with the bones so that bones are fragile and can be easily cracked. Here, even the usual activities can result in breaking some bone, and the reason of fragility in bones is mineral deficiency, especially deficiency in calcium. It was believed that only women can develop this condition, but that is not true because men also suffer from osteoporosis.
Temporomandibular joint disorder
This condition is caused by the inflammation of the joint between the head of the lower jawbone and the temporal bone. TMJ can be very painful and over time, the condition can worsen. The treatment for this condition is quite complicated and it includes neurological and physical therapy, and many more. TMJ is often followed by other disorders of the joints.
Complex Regional Pain Syndrome
This condition is characterized by burning and painful sensations in the extremities, though it can also be accompanied by stains or bulges on the skin, changed temperature and extreme sensitivity of the painful place.
This condition is known by its long-lasting, recurrent and diffused pain. There are no exact standards for recognizing this condition, but it does not only include pain. We know that it is not transmittable and that it can be developed due to hereditary factors. The studies showed that fibromyalgia is not dangerous, but it can greatly affect the quality of life.
Polio is caused by a virus and it can be transmitted on another individual. Fortunately, today this disease is extremely rare in the States. However, it is present in countries such as Afghanistan, India, Nigeria, and Pakistan.
