Joint Pain and Hot flashes

Joint Pain Can Affect Young Adults, Too

Joint pain isn’t just for older adults. According to U.S. Department of Health and Human Services research, more than 16 percent of adults ages 18 to 44 reported joint pain in the past month.

If your job requires repetitive movements or you play sports like soccer or football, you may be at higher risk for joint pain or even arthritis. To protect your joints, avoid repetitive motions when possible, wear protective gear, and don’t overwork sore or damaged joints.

Excess weight also stresses the joints, especially the knees. Controlling your weight can help. Maintaining a healthy weight can also lower your risk of developing osteoarthritis.

Mild joint pain can often be treated with RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, Elevation) and over–the-counter pain relievers. See a doctor if you have severe pain, the joint looks crooked, or you can’t move or put any weight on the joint.

Hot Flashes Linked to Thinner Bones

                Women who have hot flashes and night sweats during menopause could face greater risk for osteoporosis. Researchers comparing the bone density of women with and without these symptoms found symptomatic women were more likely to have thinner, weaker bones. Bone loss can lead to osteoporosis, a disease common among older women and marked by easily broken bones. Keep bones strong through exercise and a diet rich in calcium and vitamin D. Talk with your doctor about a bone mineral density test; it’s the best way to check bone health.
