QUESTION: I sometimes feel that my smoking habits are linked to the headaches I suffer regularly. Could this be true in any way?
ANSWER: Hello Mary Jane! Thank you for using the #asksudrexfeature. Your suspicions are very true. Headaches after smoking can be caused by the tobacco smoke, the chemicals it contains can cause the blood vessels in your brain to narrow & give you headaches. Smoking can cause dehydration, which can also trigger a headache. The best prevention is to quit smoking or at best reduce the number of cigarettes you take daily. Reduce the risk of headaches by drinking plenty of water & don’t smoke on an empty stomach. If you still experience headaches after smoking, Sudrex Headache & Fever can help alleviate the pain.

QUESTION: My grandfather complains of pain in his knees and joints & these cause him severe pain that I can’t help feeling bad. Doctors say aging comes with joint pain. What can I do now to avoid this same painful situation in years to come?
ANSWER: Hello Tunde! Thank you for using the #asksudrexfeature. One of the most important components of managing pain for the elderly is not only in treatment but also in prevention. Ensure joint health by maintaining a healthy weight because being overweight puts pressure on the joints, causing damage & discomfort. Get regular exercise, being inactive causes the cartilage in the bones to shrink & become stiff thereby affecting movement. Physical activity can help you a great deal. Make sure you’re drinking enough water, replace soda & energy drinks with water. Make a habit of eating healthy foods that prevent inflammation, strengthen bone density & offer natural relief for joint pain. Examples include seeds & nuts, fish with omega-3 fatty acids. Others are fruits like pineapples, tomatoes, beans, whole grains & olive oil etc. Onions, garlic, ginger & turmeric are root vegetables with anti-inflammatory properties. When in pain, trust Sudrex Joint & Muscle pain caplets.

QUESTION: I really do love to run as a way of exercising my body, but I don’t understand why I get cramps/spasms each time. Are there any explanations to this occurence?
ANSWER: Hello Karen! Thank you for using the #asksudrexfeature. The occurrence of cramps or spasms during exercise is quite unpredictable. The simple explanation to cramps is dehydration & loss of electrolytes through sweating. Electrolytes are needed for proper muscle function including contracting & relaxing, any depletion both in the blood & in the muscle can result in uncontrolled muscle contractions commonly called cramps. Try not to exercise in the heat to reduce sweating & fatigue. Always have water or a sports drink with you while exercising & use stretches to gently warm up your muscles before exercise to reduce the incidence of cramping. For muscular pain take Sudrex Joint & Muscle.

ANSWER: Hello Cynthia! Thank you for using the #asksudrexfeature. Fever may occur in anyone at any age, it is a higher-than-normal body temperature and it usually occurs in response to an infection be it viral or bacterial.

Seek medical intervention if your fever lasts more than 7 days, or gets worse. If you have difficulty breathing or seem confused see a doctor.
