As for chronic arthralgia, it is characterized by persistent pain. Osteoarthritis and rheumatoid arthritis are two very common examples.

Symptoms of arthralgia

Arthralgia is characterized by pain of varying intensity on one or more joints in the body.

This feeling may be transient or recurrent, short-term or persistent. It can last up to an hour for pains of inflammatory type. In certain cases, the pain may affect several body parts.

In general, arthralgia shows no apparent physical symptoms, although it is sometimes accompanied by swelling and redness with burning sensations.

When should you consult a doctor?

However, when the pain persists and becomes recurrent, or if it becomes unbearable, it is best to seek medical attention. Thus, pain that has been persistent for a week, or morning joint pain that lasts more than an hour, require medical examination and treatment by a doctor. It is particularly recommended to consult if the affected area presents visible physical symptoms such as swelling, redness, sensation of warmth, or if an open wound has occurred on the joint.

Pathology and homeopathy are two fields of scientific research that go hand in hand. As a matter of fact, homeopathic research on a disease is always accompanied by a pathological study of that disease. Pathology is the scientific field that studies diseases, while homeopathy is a gentle method for treating diseases. Homeopathic treatment follows the principles of similarity (Similia similibus curentur or "likes are cured by likes") and comprehensiveness. There is no universal treatment for a given disease; it must be adapted to each patient.
