Herbal & Home Remedies Herbal Remedies Home Remedies

Rheumatism is any of the many conditions characterized by generalized pain or aching in muscles, joints and fibrous tissue. Rheumatism may also be associated with inflammation of internal organs, such as the heart, lungs and kidneys. The various forms of arthritis and rheumatism are referred to as the rheumatic diseases.

Rheumatic diseases all have one thing in common - pain. The pain may result from inflammation in a joint (arthritis), a tendon (tendonitis), or a bursa - the pouch-like cavity found near some joints (bursitis). Rheumatic diseases may involve all of the joints or muscles, or be localized at one site.

Some problems are the result of an injury or just wear and tear on your body. For certain rheumatic diseases, heredity may be a predisposing factor. Chemical imbalances and viral or bacterial infections can also cause the inflammation, and joint or muscle pain, which characterize rheumatic diseases.
