If you are diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis or know of a loved one that is, you would understand the pain endured during day-to-day activities that once used to be quick and easy to do but now can only be attempted after taking numerous different kinds of prescribed pain killers.
In rheumatoid arthritis, the body's immune system attacks its own tissue, including joints causing painful swelling.
While there's no cure for Rheumatoid arthritis individuals rely on constant use of painkillers to get by however this constant use of painkillers also takes a heavy toll on the central nervous system.
The effects of painkillers aren’t just isolated to the central nervous system and your body’s natural ability to relieve pain, either. In fact, painkiller dependence and addiction can have a ripple effect across your entire body:
- Your Liver: Your liver is what breaks down and processes the drugs you take. When you abuse pain pills, your liver stores the toxins from these drugs, leading to dangerous and life-threatening liver damage.
- Your Heart: Some people crush or inject painkillers directly into their bodies in order to feel immediate effects. But doing this causes the drug to enter directly into the bloodstream, which affects the heart. Long-term painkiller abuse can lead to serious cardiovascular issues, heart attacks, and heart disease.
- Your Stomach: Stomach and intestinal issues can arise even after a day or two of taking painkillers. Painkiller abuse can lead to constipation, bloating, abdominal distention, bowel obstructions, and hemorrhoids.
- Your Veins: Injecting painkillers always comes with high risk, especially if the needles have been shared or aren’t sterilized. Injecting drugs like opioid painkillers can lead to collapsed veins and blood-borne infections and diseases.
Rest assured there is a drug-free alternative to Painkillers.
Transcutaneous Electrical Nerve Stimulation(TENS)
TENS sends an electrical signal to your nerves that can override your body’s pain signals. Additionally, it can trigger the release of your brain’s natural painkillers, endorphins.
According to the Arthritis Foundation, TENS can help both acute (short-term) and chronic (long-term) pain due to arthritis. One review determined that approximately half of the people who use TENS for arthritis treatment will experience a 50% reduction in their pain.
