Sex

Many arthritis sufferers experience that their pain and inflammation is temporarily relieved following sex. There is no scientific validation of this and we are not quite sure what is the mechanism. It is possible that sexual activity encourages the production of endorphins, norepinephrine, dopamine, adrenaline and other substances in the body that help to lift the mood, temporarily reduce inflammation and pain, and otherwise make one feel good. In addition, the pleasurable aspects of sex can take one's mind off of other problems, at least temporarily.
