People who suffer from arthritis and degenerative joints are also experiencing greater sleep problems in many cases. A recent report shows arthritis sufferers experience sleep disruption more frequently than those who don’t suffer arthritis or experience degenerative joints. A National Health Interview Study reported in the October 2010 issue of Arthritis Care and Research reviewed data from over 20,000 adults, with 20 percent of them suffering from arthritis and degenerative joints.
The report uncovered a number of statistics, the most concerning trends showing arthritis sufferers are having sleep problems almost three times more often as those who don’t have arthritis problems. Reported sleeping problems include insomnia, too much sleeping during the daytime hours, or sleeping too little at night.
Most of the reported sleeping problems had to do with overall aches and pains and joint mobility. Flexcin, one natural supplement for joint pain, helps people every day who experience joint mobility issues. A high percentage of them complain of a lack of sleep or bad sleeping patterns. A noticeable number of these same people say their sleeping improves, as well as their joint mobility, after adding the joint nutrition supplement into their regular diet.
Researchers also studied sleep patterns of those arthritis sufferers who also displayed a combination of other medical issues, such as depression and anxiety, as well as gastrointestinal problems such as acid reflux or ulcers. The combination of medical problems made for a poor sleeping outlook as well.
But steps can be taken to ensure a better night’s sleep. Here are some tips from The Arthritis Foundation:
1) Exercise during the day, but avoid fitness programs at night. Make sure to maintain a regular schedule of daily activities. This includes rising each day at the same time.
2) Stay relaxed. Focus on relaxing each day, preferably at night before bedtime. It’s also a good idea to avoid caffeine and sugary substances right before bedtime. Take a warm bath right before bedtime, and also try listening to soothing and relaxing music before bedtime.

3) Know your limits. Don’t overdo it on the job as it’s already painful enough to cope with arthritis in the workplace.
4) Avoid lengthy naps. If you need a nap to get through the day, try to schedule it earlier in the day with some light exercising afterward.
5) Take Notes. Keep a pad and pencil near the bed so you can write down important thoughts that come through your mind before bedtime or during the middle of the night. This will allow you to ease your thoughts and limit worrying about forgetting what you thought about the next morning.
Good luck and here’s to a good night’s sleep to all!
