Arthralgia (from Greek arthro- , joint + -algos , pain) literally means joint pain . [1] [2] Specifically, arthralgia is a symptom of injury , infection , illness (in particular arthritis ), or an allergic reaction to medication . [3]Do you have arthritis, or do you have arthralgia? Many medical organizations use either term to mean any type of joint pain. Mayo Clinic , for example, states that β€œjoint pain refers to arthritis or arthralgia, which is inflammation and pain from within the joint itself.”

Treatment depends on a specific underlying cause. The underlying cause will be treated first and foremost. The treatments may include joint replacement surgery for severely damaged joints, immunosuppressants for immune system dysfunction, antibiotics when an infection is the cause, and discontinuing medication when an allergic reaction is the cause. When treating the primary cause, pain management may still play a role in treatment. The extent of its role varies depending on the specific cause of the arthralgia. Pain management may include stretching exercises, over the counter pain medications, prescription pain medication, or other treatments deemed appropriate for the symptoms. Capsaicin, a substance found in chili peppers, may relieve joint pain from arthritis and other conditions. Capsaicin blocks the actions of substance P, which helps transmit pain signals, and capsaicin triggers the release of pain-blocking chemicals in the body known as endorphins. Side effects of capsaicin cream include burning or stinging in the area where it is applied. Another topical option is an arthritis cream containing the ingredient, methyl salicylate (Bengay).
