Goody's® Makes you Unstoppable.

Before you can fight pain, you’ve got to understand your pain. Explore the various types of headaches and pain Goody’s® can help with today.

    Headaches

    Not all headaches are the same.

    Headaches are the most common type of pain. While painful, headaches rarely indicate an underlying serious illness, though frequent headaches can interfere with daily life.

    There are 3 types of headaches:

    • Muscle contraction/tension headache
    • Cluster headache
    • Migraine headache

    Backaches

    Backaches and other pains in the neck.

    Sometimes it seems that the harder you work, the more you hurt. Take a quick look at the causes of these common kinds of body aches to find your pain. What causes backache? Lower back injuries are associated with lifting, twisting, bending, reaching, pulling and pushing actions. 

    How to treat minor backaches:

    • Rest! Find a comfortable position and stay there.
    • Apply ice for 10 to 15 minutes every hour.
    • Take a mild, over-the-counter anti-inflammatory such as aspirin or acetaminophen (such as Goody's® Body Pain) as soon as you can.

    Sleeplessness

    Pain that keeps you awake is the worst.

    Losing sleep affects people every day and can make it difficult for many to perform at their best and on the job.

    How to treat pain with sleeplessness.

    Many over-the-counter pain relievers can help stop minor aches and pains and often include a sleep aid such as diphenhydramine citrate (such as Goody's® PM) to help you get the sleep you need. If you have severe pain, it is best to consult a doctor to determine the proper treatment for pain with sleeplessness.

    Arthritis

    Arthritis pain is serious stuff.

    Arthritis refers to diseases that cause pain, swelling and limited movement in joint and connective tissue.

    The two most common types of arthritis are:

    • Osteoarthritis
    • Rheumatoid arthritis

    How to treat arthritis pain.

    For minor arthritis pain use an over-the-counter anti-inflammatory such as aspirin or acetaminophen (such as Goody's® Body Pain). For osteoarthritis or rheumatoid arthritis consult your doctor for treatment.

    Cold + Flu

    Getting sick and tired of cold and flu pain?

    The Cold

    Several viruses are responsible for the common cold. A group known as rhinoviruses cause about 40 percent of all colds in adults. Typical symptoms include:

    • Sneezing
    • Sore throat
    • Congestion
    • Excessive nasal secretion (rhinitis)
    • Dry Cough

    The Flu

    Influenza is also caused by a virus. Its symptoms include:

    • Chills
    • Headaches
    • Fever
    • Muscle aches
    • Cold-like symptoms appear as the fever subsides. In extreme cases, influenza may result in death in high-risk individuals.

    How to treat colds/the flu.

    There is no proven cure for colds or flu but time. However, over-the-counter medications are available to relieve the symptoms. Other recommended treatment includes drinking fluids and bed rest. Consult your doctor if your condition worsens.
