Symptoms of Rheumatism-pain relief patch

The most predominant symptom of rheumatism is pain. There could be pain in the joints and muscles, or stiffness and aching that seems to have no specific cause. This pain may be localized affecting just a specific area, but could then travel to another part of the body altogether. Most common areas of pain include the knees, legs, hands, arms, shoulders, back, chest, and hips. Other rheumatism symptoms are:

  • Extreme fatigue

  • Diarrhea

  • Headaches

  • Numbness and tingling feeling in the arms and legs

  • Pain in the abdomen that recurs

  • Difficulty in swallowing

  • Fever

  • Stiffness of muscles and joints

  • Loss of sleep

  • Anxiety

  • Soreness and swelling

  • Irregular urination

  • Eye pain

A typical rheumatic ‘attack’ starts off with the swelling of a joint (the knee or the ankle for example). The skin over the joint becomes hot and reddened and the pain spreads to other joints over the next few days. During this time, any movement aggravates the pain and bed rest is absolutely necessary. Rheumatic attacks may be seasonal and may appear and disappear with no discernible cause. Very often the first attack may be dismissed as a one-off event and the full effect of the disease may not be realized until many attacks and several months or years later. Along with the pain and swelling, there is a fever along with complications to the cardiovascular system in some cases.
