Reasons behind your Joint Pain
ABOUT THE DISEASE:
Joint pain is extremely common, especially as you age. In one national survey, about one-third of adults reported having joint pain. Knee pain was the most common complaint, followed by shoulder and hip pain. But joint pain can affect any part of the body, from the ankles and feet to shoulders and hands. Joint pain can range from mildly irritating to debilitating. It may go away after a few weeks (acute), or last for several weeks or months (chronic). Even short-term pain and swelling in the joints can affect the quality of life.
Osteoarthritis is the second most common rheumatologic problem and it is the most frequent joint disease with a prevalence of 22% to 39% in India. The prevalence of OA is increasing due to population ageing and an increase in related factors such as obesity, sedentary life style. The physical disability arising from pain and loss of functional capacity reduces quality of life and increases the risk of further morbidity. Almost 1.3 crore people in India suffer from rheumatoid arthritis; disease not restricted to the older generation. Most people who are affected by rheumatoid arthritis belong to the younger age group, between 20 and 40 years.
Causes Of Joint Pain
A wide range of conditions can lead to painful joints:
Osteoarthritis, a “wear and tear” disease, is the most common type of arthritis. It occurs when the protective cartilage that cushions the ends of the bones wears down over time. Although osteoarthritis can damage any joint, the disorder most commonly affects joints in your hands, knees, hips and spine.
Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder that happens when the body attacks its own tissues.
Bursitis is when sacs of fluid that help cushion the joints get inflamed. Bursitis occurs most often at joints that perform frequent repetitive motion.
Symptoms include pain, swelling and stiffness. Common areas include the knees, shoulders, elbows and hips.
Gout is a form of arthritis that most often affects the big toe joint.
Pain and inflammation occur when too much uric acid crystallizes and deposits in the joints.
A strain is an injury to either a muscle or a tendon (fibrous cords of tissue that connect muscle to bone). Depending on the severity of your injury, a strain may be a simple overstretch of the muscle or tendon, or it can be due to a partial or complete tear.

How much Hairfall is of concern and requires treatment?The American Academy of Dermatology has also stated that it is normal for a person to lose about 50–100 hairs each day. Anyone who notices that they are losing much more hair than they usually do (during combing or washing) or observe any warning signals like gradual thinning at the forehead or receding hairline, circular patchy bald spots or loosening of hair should consult a doctor (dermatologist or trichologist).
What are the reasons for excessive hairfall?Excessive hair fall can be the result of one or a combination of the below mentioned reasons: Family history (heredity) The most common cause of hair loss is a hereditary condition called androgenic alopecia. In men, it’s called male pattern hair loss and in women it’s called female pattern hair loss. It usually occurs gradually and in predictable patterns - a receding hairline and bald spots in men and thinning hair or widening part in women. It is due to the effect of testosterone metabolites (DHT) in genetically susceptible hair follicles. Hormonal changes Hormonal changes caused due to pregnancy, childbirth, menopause, PCOD or thyroid problems can cause permanent or temporary hair loss. Stopping some types of birth control pills can also cause a temporary hormonal imbalance. Medical conditions Medical conditions include Alopecia areata (immune system related condition which causes patchy hair loss), Scalp infections (such as ringworm or scalp psoriasis) and Trichotillomania (a hair-pulling disorder). Sexually transmitted infection (STI) like Syphilis can also lead to hair loss. Left untreated, syphilis can cause patchy hair loss on the scalp, eyebrows, beard, and elsewhere. Nutritional Deficiencies Vitamin deficiencies (particularly B, C, D and E) or too little biotin, iron, protein, or zinc can lead to hair loss. Medications Hair loss can be a side effect of certain drugs, such as those used for cancer (both chemotherapy and radiotherapy), arthritis, depression, heart problems and high blood pressure. Stress Any kind of physical trauma (surgery, accident or a severe illness) can cause temporary hair loss. This can also happen after a stressful time in your life, such as a divorce, death of a loved one or financial crisis. Stress can affect the blood supply to the hair follicles thereby reducing the nutrition required for hair strength and growth. Dramatic weight loss Sudden weight loss is a form of physical trauma that can result in hair fall. It may be possible that the weight loss itself is adding stress to your body or that diet restrictions which are part of weight loss program are resulting in vitamin or mineral deficiencies. Loss of hair along with noticeable weight loss may also be a sign of an eating disorder such as anorexia or bulimia. Hairstyles and treatments Excessive hairstyling or hairstyles that pull your hair tight can cause a type of hair loss called traction alopecia. Hot-oil hair treatments, permanents, bleaching, dyeing, straightening, curling etc. also cause damage to the hair. Before starting any treatment what are the important things to know? Before starting any treatment, you need to try to identify the reason for your hair fall.

To treat androgenic or genetic alopecia, reduce DHT levels with Flaxseed, Green tea, Amla, Grape seed and other natural remedies (the most commonly available allopathic medicines are reported with several drawbacks such as allergic contact dermatitis, scalp irritation, burning, unwanted hair growth, ejaculation disorder, and decreased libido) Alongwith these remedies use Hair growth supplements or Oils to accelerate hair growth to regain hair at a faster pace.
