Common Causes of Body Aches

Common Causes of Body Aches

Have you ever been achy and not sure what the cause could be? While every individual is unique and will experience varied symptoms, some of the causes of everyday body aches are universal.

These conditions below can cause body aches—short- or long-term. Always see a doctor rather than self-diagnosing. However, you may gain insight into the root of your body’s aches and pains by understanding their causes.

Arthritis is an inflammation of the joints. This can be due to infection, the breakdown of cartilage due to overuse or injury, or an autoimmune condition. Arthritis can be genetic, depending upon the type. For instance, lupus and rheumatoid arthritis may run in families. Other risk factors include older age and sex (more common in women than men).

Lifestyle can play a role in the development of arthritis. Being overweight, for instance, can put excess stress on the joints. Tobacco smoking has also been found to lead to stress on the body’s connective tissues, making arthritis pain worse. You could develop arthritis nearly anywhere in the body where there are joints.

Some common symptoms of arthritis include pain, swelling, tenderness, stiffness, redness and heat around the affected area, noticeable changes in the joints (bulging, deformity, etc.), and loss or limitation of motion.

Your doctor can diagnose your arthritis and help treat or manage the symptoms. You may be able to make lifestyle changes as well, like losing weight or revamping your exercise routine. At-home care can include a topical pain relief cream too.

Using an all-natural cream like Ultimate RepairX can help relieve symptoms quickly, with fast absorption and reparative ingredients. Used along with your recommended doctor’s treatment and advice, a topical pain relief cream can lessen your arthritis pain from the outside in.


Stress is simply part of life, but too much long-term stress can wreak havoc on the body. While we may think of stress as something that affects us mentally (which it can), unexplained body aches and pains can be attributed to stress. Why? Stress can affect the immune system, potentially causing inflammation. Additionally, we may tend to tense up when stressed out, over time leading to soreness and pain. Stress can lead to a lack of sleep or tiredness, making us prone to injuries and accidents.

There are endless sources of stress, and everyone reacts to and handles life’s challenges differently. While we can’t control what happens around us, we can protect ourselves from some of the repercussions of excess, unmanaged stress.

Eating healthfully, sleeping enough, and engaging in regular exercise can help reduce stress levels. Deep breathing exercises, including meditation, can be calming. A strong support network (friends, family, co-workers, etc.) can also help you handle everyday pressure and panic. Working with a mental health therapist can be beneficial in learning how to manage stress productively.

It could be due to stress if you are experiencing body aches and pains and don’t seem to have a physical explanation. Getting to the root of the underlying issues can take time, but you can find fast relief by treating your aches and pains with a pain relief cream. Using a chemical-free cream like Ultimate RepairX gives you the peace of mind that you aren’t introducing harmful elements into your body. You don’t need another thing to stress over!


Staying well-hydrated is essential for nearly every bodily function. Aiming for about eight glasses of water per day is considered standard, more if you are extra active or it’s a scorching day.

Aside from quenching your thirst and cooling you down, good hydration can keep aches and pains at bay. For example, our muscles need water to move and function, and you could experience muscle cramping or spasms when you’re underhydrated. Water also helps to keep the joints well-lubricated, helping with normal, pain-free movement.

You may be dehydrated if you feel incredibly thirsty, notice that your urine is dark yellow, you feel dizzy or weak, or you’re tired all the time, even if you got enough sleep.

If you start increasing your fluid intake, you may notice your aches and pains subside. While your body returns to normal, you can find relief in a topical cream. Ultimate RepairX works nearly instantly to relieve pain topically. Remember, even when you’re not feeling the pain thanks to the fast-acting URX relief, you still must rehydrate for your overall health and well-being, so drink up!

Common Cold/Flu/Covid-19

We have all been uncomfortable at one point or another, perhaps bedridden with a bad cold, the flu, or, more recently, Covid-19. As our immune system fights off the illness, part of the recovery process includes body aches and pains. It may not feel like healing, but that’s how the human body works.

While we can take medications, get plenty of rest, and drink lots of fluids, we must wait it out most of the time. And we probably won’t feel like ourselves until we’re 100% better.

If you are sick with a common cold, the flu, or Covid-19, along with your doctor’s medical treatment and advice, try Ultimate RepairX on your body (externally) wherever it hurts. The quick action will make your illness more bearable until you’ve fully recovered.

We’re all susceptible to aches and pains. With fast relief, you can get back to what you love to do without anything holding you back.
