Not all pain is equal, and how you deal with it depends on its severity and location. Whether it’s dull or sharp, in your head or your back, pain can really interfere with your life. Sometimes it's a symptom of an injury or disease, and sometimes the pain like migraine headaches is the condition itself

Muscles are an integral part of the human body system and most activities depend on it. Muscle ache is one of the common pains people face and it ranges from mild to severe depending on its cause. Because there’s muscle tissue in nearly all parts of the body, this type of pain can be felt practically anywhere. However, there’s no single cause for muscle aches and pains. While overuse or injury is common, there are other possible explanations for ongoing discomfort.

The most common causes of muscle aches

  • Muscle tension in one or more areas of the body and overusing the muscle during physical activity
  • Injuring the muscle while engaging in physically demanding work or exercise
  • Skipping warm-ups and cool downs

Some medical conditions that can cause muscle pain

Not all muscle aches are related to stress, tension, and physical activity. Some medical explanations for myalgia include:

  • Fibromyalgia, especially if aches and pains last longer than 3 months and chronic fatigue syndrome
  • Myofascial pain syndrome, which causes inflammation in muscular connective tissues called fascia
  • Infections, such as the flu, polio, or bacterial infections and use of certain medications or drugs, such as statins, ACE inhibitors, or cocaine

Home remedies for muscle pain:

Muscle aches often respond well to home treatment. Some measures you can take to relieve muscle discomfort from injuries and overuse include:

  • Resting the area of the body where you’re experiencing aches and pains and taking an over-the-counter pain reliever, such as Sudrex Joint and Muscle pain
  • Applying ice to the affected area to help relieve pain and reduce inflammation. You should use ice for 1 to 3 days following a strain or sprain, and apply heat for any pain that remains after 3 days.

Other measures that may provide relief from muscle pain include:

  • Gently stretching the muscles
  • Avoid high-impact activities until after the muscle pain goes away
  • Avoid weight lifting sessions until the muscle pain is resolved and giving yourself time to rest
  • Do stress relieving activities and exercises such as yoga and meditation to relieve tension

 

Always remember Health is Wealth and always remember that Sudrex comes in 3 packs (Sudrex Headache & Fever, Sudrex Cold & Cough and Sudrex Joint & Muscle Pain) to provide you fast relief #ReliefMoment with Sudrex.
