NSAIDS (Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs) temporarily relieve pain by reducing the production of hormone-like substances (prostaglandins) that cause pain.
Acetaminophen relieves pain by talking to the area of the brain that receives the pain signals.
Muscles, bones and joints are vulnerable targets for pain to attack. Chronic pain may begin with an injury or illness, but could also originate with anything from a bad mattress to arthritis. It is the continual firing of the pain signals.
Acute pain acts as an alarm such as with a bee sting or stubbing your toe and can last a few moments or for longer.
Exercise may help with chronic pain as it keeps a person more active and releases endorphins, the body’s natural pain blocker.
Not getting enough sleep can make pain worse or pain can prevent a good night’s sleep. Practicing good bed time habits by going to sleep and waking up on a regular schedule may be helpful.
Good distractions such as playing a game, reading or conversation with friends can also help relieve pain.
Fatty meats, wine and cheese may be foods that trigger pain in some people. Keeping a food diary and eliminating certain types of food can help determine if that is the case.
Other activities that may help relieve pain are yoga, strength training, and deep breathing.
