Sir, thanks for your query on lybrate. There is new way of thinking for treating age related diseases like osteoarthritis. It requires holistic approach. In my knee clinic I advise lifestyle modification, use of knee cap for walking, regular home exercises for knee muscles and low dose medication. It gives 80% symptomatic relief.

Do contrast bath. Take hot water in one bowl, temperature should as hot as you can tolerate. In another bowl take cold water, ice cubes must be added. Then dip your hand 1st in hot water for 3 min then in cold water for 1 min. Keep repeating the cycle for about 20 min. The process should be ended on cold water.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Actually pain at calf/leg region can be due to many reasons, commonly it is muscular in nature but it can also be due to tendons, nerves, blood vessels and sometimes due to some medications if taken for a long time as well. My advise to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - ice packs application intensively with elevation of your limbs at night - take a short course of anti-inflammatory medication as per your body's suitability - stop your physical activity till pain completely subsides - intensive physical therapy, training and proper muscle conditioning once pain has subsided - slow resumption of physical activities with proper pre activity warm up and stretching of muscles and short increments in duration of physical activity each day as per pain tolerance. - we will get some blood tests for you - serum vitamin d and serum potassium levels, esr and crp once you have all these reports then you can contact me as I can advise you for proper supplementation do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Bisphosphonates - How Long Should Osteoporosis Patients Take Them?

Bisphosphonates - How Long Should Osteoporosis Patients Take Them?

Bisphosphonates are the most commonly prescribed medicine for osteoporosis patients. This medicine is taken for no more than three to five years in a stretch. A doctor typically takes a call after this time period to find out whether it is suitable for the patient to continue the medicine for a longer time based on the individual risk factors.

Bisphosphonates contain four main ingredients namely Relcast, Fosamax, Boniva and Atelvia. This medicine slows the rate of bone loss and reduces the risk of fracture. This being said, there are some potential side effects of Bisphosphonates as well:

  1. Problems in the jawbone: Consumption of Bisphosphonates can lead to a condition known as the osteonecrosis. This is a disease of the jawbone swelling, pain, and infection of the jawbone. The risk increases if a patient goes through an invasive surgery such as tooth extraction.
  2. Thigh bone fracture: Prolonged intake of Bisphosphonates is believed to be a rare kind of thigh fracture known as the atypical femoral fracture. This is very similar to a stress fracture that causes subtle pain and worsens with time.
  3. Stomach upset: Bisphosphonates intake can lead to oesophageal ulcers and sharp pain in the abdomen. It can also lead to mild fever lasting for a time period of 2-3 days along with upset stomach and body ache. This symptom mostly occurs when there is an irregularity in taking the medicine.

Choosing the right Bisphosphonates:
Drugs of the Bisphosphonates class are similar in nature. While some vary in terms of maintaining potency and bone density, the overall effectiveness of this drug is on the higher side. The common aim of this drug is to reduce the rate of fracture. The decision of choosing a drug over another depends on factors such as cost, preference, convenience and tenacity to stick to the exact dosage. Doctors often prescribe the monthly dosage at one go. The dosage can also be prescribed on a weekly basis depending on the patient’s convenience.

The effect of Bisphosphonates:
Consumption of intravenous Bisphosphonates is considered to be the best medicine for fracture prevention. It is, therefore, very unlikely that a patient with osteoporosis will see additional improvement once he has taken Bisphosphonates for more than three years. This is perhaps the reason why most doctors suggest stopping this medicine after a patient consumes this for more than 3 years. Some other factors that a doctor considers while making this decision include past history of fractures, the age of the patient and the present bone density. If however, the bone density gets worse, a doctor can always restart Bisphosphonates until further improvement is witnessed. This again depends on the patient’s medical condition at the time of check-up. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Dear, First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket . And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back . you may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * Gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * Surya Namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * In diet vegetable protein of cereal , B complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.
