Please do the following for your condition: 1. Cold Compress -- Applying cold compresses to the painful knee is one of the best and easiest ways to reduce pain and swelling. The cold will constrict the blood vessels, reducing blood flow to the affected area and thus reducing swelling. It will also give you relief from the pain. 1. Wrap a handful of ice cubes in a thin towel. 2. Apply the compress to the affected knee area for 10 to 20 minutes. 3. Do this two or three time daily until your pain is gone. Take Mag phos 6x – 4 tabs twice daily for next 10 days. Continue treatment

Sir i have safariing form (As) HLA B-27 my age is 20 what can i do Plz. Sir advice me ,i have pain in right leg (in hip joint ) advice me , presently i am taking homeopathic treatment .

Occupational Therapist, Muzaffarnagar
If you are confirmed about above mentioned test and diagnosis then I would like to suggest you first educate yourself about this condition and disease. It is very much important to understand about this condition. Without knowing it you can not understand remedial part of it. Next you need to be in regulor touch with rheumatologist physiotherapist and occupational therapist for treatment of it. Do regular ROM exercise of all joints and specially little bit more on left hip joint as u mentioned. May be there will be need of orthopaedics too later in life. Maintain your activity of daily living skills, breathing exercises, walk in rising sun time etc etc take nutrious diet too as dietician will suggest you

My wife had neck pain AND CERVICAL LYMPHADENOPATHY for 2 months and since 1 month she is on AKT4. DURING TREATMENT SHE DEVELOPED TORTICOLLIS AND NOW UNABLE TO SUPPORT HER NECK. MRI DONE MULTI LEVEL INVOLVEMENT BUT NO NEUROLOGICAL DEFICIT. PLS ADVISE.

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Chennai
The reason for cervical lymphadenopathy is infection. Having said that she is now on akt 4 I presume that she was investigated prior to starting anti tuberculosis medication. However. The treatment for the torticollis is analgesic therapy, muscle relaxants. Gels. Physio and exercises. Ultrasound therapy will help for sure.

First and foremost is to treat neuropathy by methycobalamine injection weekly one for 2-3 months and other vitamins as supplement. Then next to treat your prediabetic part by lifestyle modification by taking proper diet + exercises/physical activity. In Diet avoid binge eating, breat the food taking habit to decrease calorie intake. Take food 4 times daily but calorie intake should be low. Physical activity should be for an hour two times daily.

3 Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis to Watch Out for

3 Symptoms of Rheumatoid Arthritis to Watch Out for

3 symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis to watch out for

Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disorder in which the small joints of the hands and feet of the affected person get inflamed. It affects the lining of the joints and causes pain and swelling that may lead to joint deformity and erosion if left untreated.

This disorder of the autoimmunological system occurs when the body's immune system attacks the body's own tissues.

Although this medical condition usually causes joint problems only, sometimes it may go on to affect other body organs like skin, lungs, eyes and blood vessels as well.

Some of the signs and symptoms that are indicative of rheumatoid arthritis are:

1. Problems in the joints

One of the most common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis is swelling of the joints that become tender and painful. During the early days, only the smaller joints are affected, especially the finger and toe joints. However as the disease worsens, the symptoms spread to other body parts like knees, wrists, elbows, ankles etc. Joint redness and warmth are also characteristic features of rheumatoid arthritis. It is also recognized by joint deformity and stiff joints.

2. Fever, fatigue and loss of weight

Fatigue is a common symptom of rheumatoid arthritis. It may be a result of the body's reaction to insomnia, anemia, and inflammation. It may also be caused due to loss of appetite and the consequent and unintended weight loss. Sometimes rheumatoid arthritis is also accompanied by fever.

3. Rheumatoid nodules

Another symptom of rheumatoid arthritis is the presence of firm bumps of tissues under the skin on the arms. These bumps are known as rheumatoid nodules and may be painful. The nodules may come and go depending on the severity of the disease at a particular time. During flares, they may appear, and they may subside during the periods of remission just as all the other symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.

For your ready reference, I briefly describe my wife?s case. She is a 74-year- old housewife. She is a patient of chronic rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis and has been taking a steroid, wyslone 5 mg /day, for the last about 30 years and RISOFOC kit (calcium and vitamin D3) for osteoporosis for the last about two years. She has been taking other medicines also for hypertension (UDP 5 mg twice daily) diabetes (Glyson 5 mg thrice a day), high cholesterol (Zivast 20) etc. Now her BP and sugar levels are within the normal levels. She has terrible pain below the knee and above the ankle in the right leg and cannot walk. Her problem has been diagnosed as Rt side L5 radiculopathy and chronic steroid-induced neuropathy. An MRI done in Dec. 2014 showed L4-L5 Rt side foraminal compression. She has undergone a spine surgery on Dec. 29, 2014 and a transforaminal epidural injection at Rt side L5 level. Now she takes Lyrica 75 once every evening, tab Instrel ? thrice /day, tab Nexpro 20 twice /day, tab Rockbon once /day, and tab Mazetol 200 once in the morning, and tab Neurokind once at night. But there is no relief from the pain when she attempts to stand up and walk; there is no pain, however while she is in bed lying or sitting up. Please advise what can be done to alleviate the pain. Thanks for your attention and advice.

Relief on lying down.And pain present only on attempting to walk may indicate degeneration.In the knees or at the ankles due to prior arthritis. If possible do consult. Reevaluation may be of some help. Will try to help you in the best possible way.

I am 21year old female and am suffering from severe backache from last two days. What I should do?
Here are some tips for how to handle your back pain: -stop normal physical activity for the first few days. This will help relieve your symptoms and reduce any swelling in the area of the pain. -apply heat or ice to the painful area. One good method is to use ice for the first 48 to 72 hours, and then use heat. Take pain relievers medicine. --while sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back for the first 6 weeks after the pain begins. -avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -stretching and strengthening exercises are important. But, starting these exercises too soon after an injury can make your pain worse. -some physiotherapy treatment like ift current can give you some relief. -a full history of your problem should be taken and your movements assessed by a physiotherapist. Please consult a physiotherapist for the same.

You have to take following precautions like: use an ice pack to reduce swelling, inflammation, and pain. Take an over-the-counter pain reliever, like ibuprofen or acetaminophen. Rest your feet by staying off of them as much as possible for a few days when your heels are aching. Exercise your feet. Some good foot flexing and stretches can help stretch out the plantar fascia, and make it feel better. Adjust your shoes with inserts that raise the heel and support the arch of your foot. Avoid walking on uneven walking surfaces.

This is because of meniscus tear. You need to get MRI done at best centre with 3 tesla machine. It will show what's wrong with your knee. Then treatment can be advised. It's not good to get recurrent episodes of knee locking as it will lead to damage to knee cartilage
