Muscles, bones and joints are vulnerable targets for pain to attack. Chronic, or recurrent, pain may begin with an injury or illness, but could also originate with anything from a bad mattress to arthritis. Acute pain acts as an alarm such as with a bee sting or stubbing your toe and can last for a few moments or for longer. 

Exercise may help with chronic pain as it keeps a person more active and releases endorphins, the body’s natural pain blocker. 

Not getting enough sleep can make pain worse or pain can prevent a good night’s sleep. Practicing good bedtime habits by going to sleep and waking up on a regular schedule may be helpful. 

Good distractions, such as playing a game, reading or conversation with friends, can also help relieve pain. 

Fatty meats, wine, and cheese may be foods that trigger pain in some people. Keeping a food diary and eliminating certain types of food can help determine if that is the case. 

Keeping active, yoga, supplements, strength training, deep breathing as well as OTC pain relievers can help relieve pain.
