Rheumatism
Rheumatism or rheumatic disorder is an umbrella term for conditions causing chronic, often intermittent pain affecting the joints and/or connective tissue. The study of, and therapeutic interventions in, such disorders is called rheumatology.[1] The term "rheumatism", however, does not designate any specific disorder, but covers at least 200 different conditions.[2] Sources dealing with rheumatism tend to focus on arthritis,[citation needed] but "rheumatism" may also refer to other conditions causing chronic pain, grouped as "non-articular rheumatism", also known as "regional pain syndrome" or "soft tissue rheumatism".[3] The term "Rheumatic Diseases" is used in MeSH to refer to connective tissue disorders.[4]Contents1 Types 2 Cause2.1 Weather3 Treatment 4 History 5 See also 6 References 7 Further reading 8 External linksTypes[edit] Many rheumatic disorders of chronic, intermittent joint pain have historically been caused by infectious diseases

Electric Shocks
Electrical injury
Electrical injury
is a physiological reaction caused by electric current passing through the (human) body.[1] Electric shock
Electric shock
occurs upon contact of a (human) body part with any source of electricity that causes a sufficient magnitude of current to pass through the victim's flesh, viscera or hair. Physical contact with energized wiring or devices is the most common cause of an electric shock. In cases of exposure to high voltages, such as on a power transmission tower, physical contact with energized wiring or objects may not be necessary to cause electric shock, as the voltage may be sufficient to "jump" the air gap between the electrical device and the victim. The injury related to electric shock depends on the magnitude of the current. [2] Very small currents may be imperceptible or produce a light tingling sensation
