Arthralgia

Arthralgia is pain in the joints. Occurs in diseases of the joints (arthritis, arthrosis), infectious diseases (e.g., influenza, brucellosis) and other Treatment - depending on the cause artralgia. For removal of pains prescribed analgesic means, for example analgin 0.5 g 2-3 times a day and other

Arthralgia (arthralgia; from the Greek. arthron - joint and algos - pain) - joint pain. Term used to denote pain symptom of any disease of the joints. Arthralgia more pronounced in inflammatory lesions - arthritis, weaker with degenerative - arthritis.
Arthralgia may occur at the beginning of the acute and chronic infectious diseases (influenza, brucellosis epidemic hepatitis, and others)and with serum sickness. Arthralgia is a manifestation of a catarrhal diseases of the lower extremities associated with exposure to damp cold; common among fishermen, water experts, sailors and workers of other types of water transport, mining industry and others In these cases A. often becomes resistant, but how would monocompany disease, where the term "cold" A. can be used as symptomatic diagnosis. However, after a more detailed study (bpts Kushelev) it became clear that this kind of pain syndrome and even syndrome (in the process involved not only the ankle and knee joints, but also the shins, rather Shin bone). When the cold osteoarthrosis usually there is a provision in the history of the etiological factor (cooling). In addition, this form arthralgia characterized by seasonality, metalliliitto, the sharp decline in the zone of thermal comfort not only to the cold, but also to heat; any clinical, radiological symptoms and specific data of laboratory researches are not available. Persistent pain almost not amenable to curative effects. The pathogenesis of this common colds have not been studied.
For the treatment of acute or weakening A. chronic use of acetylsalicylic acid (aspirin), amidopyrine, analgin, reopirin and other pyrazolinone drugs. Syphilis, tuberculosis and brucellosis arthralgia give specific and antibacterial therapy. Most difficult to treat chronic catarrhal A. and osteoarthrosis; Antirheumatic agents and balneological treatment is not effective, thermal procedures often even aggravate the pain. More effective in these cases, iontophoresis with novocaine (sole - thigh), rubbing mustard or formic alcohol and drugs insect and snake venom.
Artralgia syphilis (arthralgia syphilitica) - pain in the joints, caused by syphilis infection is not accompanied by clinical and radiological changes in the synovial membranes, joint capsule, and in the epiphyses of the bones. Pain may be localized in many joints, often in large, reminding picture articular rheumatism. They are enhanced at night and decrease with distance and active movements that distinguishes them from tuberculosis, rheumatoid and other arthralgia, caused acute infectious diseases.
Arthralgia is often observed during "treponemal septicemia"when a huge number pale treponem hematogenous spread to all tissues and organs (usually just before the rash secondary fresh syphilis, during this period, and at least in the secondary recurrent syphilis). However, A. may
be observed and poorly treated patients in the tertiary period. A. experience in "reaction aggravation" after the introduction of penicillin or orally as tablets in untreated patients with fresh secondary syphilis. Development arthralgia should be probably explained by the irritation of peripheral nerve receptors in the joint cavity infection. Treatment for specific, starting with low doses. When A. in the tertiary period of syphilis potassium iodide is useful.
