Are Allergies Causing Your Joint Pain?
Reviewed by QualityHealth’s Medical Advisory Board
Got joint pain? If you’re experiencing deep, painful aches, you may wonder if it could stem from your allergies in some way. This is a reasonable assumption, but experts say that joint pain and allergies are usually not related, although it’s possible for them to co-occur.

While joint pain isn’t usually involved, it’s common for allergies to cause sneezing, congestion, and coughing as well as itchy eyes, rash, and wheezing.
On the other hand, autoimmune conditions such as arthritis and lupus occur when your immune system launches an attack against itself (rather than against an allergen). This can indeed cause joint pain, along with swelling and fatigue.” For More Click here…Are Allergies Causing Your Joint Pain?
