Overcoming Pain In The Muscles Of The Elderly?
Excuse me, I want to ask how to deal with chills in the veins and in the flesh of the age of 60 years
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com. I am dr. Princess Claudya will help answer your questions.
Pain that occurs can be caused by the following conditions:
Myalgia: inflammation of the muscles that can be caused by fatigue, wrong body position, wrong sleeping position so that the body is crushed and causes pain
Nerve clamping, characterized by burning, tingling, or numbness
Nerve pain after herpes zoster infection: there is a history of previous herpes infection, the pain feels like burning
Bone disorders (infection or tumor)
History of injury (can affect muscles, bones, nerves, joints, ligaments, or skin)
Symptoms of infectious diseases. In a viral or bacterial infection, generally the body will experience symptoms of fever, weakness, muscle and joint pain
When pain occurs in the joints, it can be due to arthritis due to gout (gout arthritis) or due to the erosion of cartilage with aging (osteoarthritis).
To ascertain the cause of the complaint, it is better to consult further with a general practitioner. The doctor will further explore the complaint and will conduct an examination of the complained area. If necessary, the doctor will refer the patient to an orthopedist for examinations related to joints, bones and muscles. If necessary, the orthopedist will conduct supporting examinations such as x-rays, CT scans, bone densitometry, MRI. And after that the doctor will provide treatment for complaints in accordance with the underlying conditions.
Things that can be done to improve and prevent worsening of the disease are:
Limit strenuous physical activity
Don't exercise too much
Do not massage / massage the painful area if the cause is unknown
Get enough rest, sleep 7-8 hours a day
Cold compress the complained area to reduce pain and swelling (if any)
Over-the-counter pain relievers such as paracetamol can be taken to relieve pain
That's all the explanation from me, hopefully it helps and is useful :)
