Muscle and joint pain is not at all a rare medical condition. It can be the result of certain diseases and it deeply interferes with one's quality of life. Lupus is usually causing this type of symptoms because both the joints and the muscle inflame and cause aches. Lupus sufferers experience muscle and joint pains even when they are resting and, in this disease, the muscle pain is more severe than the pain in the joint.

Symptoms of lupus are similar with those of arthritis, so only a physician is entitled to establish a diagnosis. In case of muscle and joint pain, the physician will also recommend the adequate exercises that the patients can do because there is a high risk of damaging the joints and the muscles even more in case of over-exercising. It is also possible that muscle or joint pain is caused neither by lupus, nor by arthritis and is just the result of an injury. Whatever the case is, the soonest the treatment begins, the easier the healing will be. There are some medical conditions in which complete healing is not possible, but an alleviation of the symptoms makes the sufferers' life easier.

Muscle and joint pain is difficult to cope with and it is always wise to also ask your physician about alternative treatment methods, like herbal supplements. Some herbs contain substances that were used to develop the artificial drugs doctors prescribe nowadays. There are many herbs containing anti-inflammatory compounds and having no side effects. Consult with your physician to determine the most appropriate treatment scheme in your particular case and maybe you are lucky enough and herbal supplements can totally replace synthetic pills.

Boswelia has an anti-inflammatory action that can't be found in other herbs and can only be compared with the action of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Angelica contains twelve anti-inflammatory agents and ten muscle relaxant agents. The action of many herbs is similar with that of aspirin, widely used for treating muscle and joint pain, but with nasty side effects in what concerns the stomach. Herbs like black cohosh and willow can safely be used instead of aspirin and they will also protect you against gastrointestinal problems. Essential oils are also doing wonders in case of muscle and pain in the joint, if they are massaged on the aching areas. St John's Wort oil, lavender oil and rosemary oil are famous for their ability to reduce inflammation and to eliminate pain.
