My mother is aged 59 yrs. She seems to be suffering from arthritis. She complains of severe pain in joints of her fingers. She is not comfortable while sitting as her back does not allow to sit comfortably. No test done for arthritis. Kindly advise.

Hi Manoj, It is possible that your mother has rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a serious disease which apart from causing pain in the joints (over the long term) can cause damage to the joints such that you are unable to use them even if there is no pain, damage to the lungs and heart ,etc. And hence needs to be treated proactively and completely not only ot avoid pain but also to prevent damage or complications to all these organs. This can be done best by a rheumatologist. If you let me know where you live I can give you a refernce of a nearby rheumatologist. You can contact me via my website www.Rheumatologybangalore.Com You can get more information regarding rheumatoid arthritis from the document below.

My aunt underwent knee replacement surgery for both knees, now she is feeling burning sensation at feet. What will the reason for that.

DNB Rheumatology, Grad. Cert. Paed. Rheumat, MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Rheumatologist, Bangalore
The symptoms are suggestive of neuropathy or involvement of the nerves. This can be due to diabetes. It has nothing to do with the knee problem or the surgery. She needs to meet a neurologist who will help her get rid of this distressing symptom

Hi My mom is 60 and she is having knee pain since 3 or 4 years.So what option of treatment ? is the surgery is only easy and permanent cure ?

Has osteoarthritis. The diagnosis needs to confirmed. If in fact she has osteoarthritis then she needs to be assessed for comorbidities and needs to be put on an intensive exercise program with control of pain using safe pain modfiying medications instead of pain killers. This can be done best by a rheumatologist. The final option is surgery. Surgery is done by an orthopedician. Nowadays if surgery is done properly the risk of failure is < 5%. If you let me know where you live I can give you a reference of a nearby rheumatologist.

What is the medicine for rheumatoid arthritis that relief pain quickly of inflammed knee joint of right side aggravated in night.

DNB Rheumatology, Grad. Cert. Paed. Rheumat, MD - Paediatrics, MBBS
Rheumatologist, Bangalore
Rheumatoid arthritis unlike the more common causes of joint pains and arthritis not just about pain. It is a disease and needs to be treated. Just like treatment of heart attack relieves the chest pain immeidaitely and much better than any pain killers similarly treatment of rheumatoid arthritis by a rheumatologist will definitely cause your pains to come down substaintially. YOu need to meet a good rheumatolgoist as soon as possible. I can provide further details as well as a reference to a good rheumatologist if you let me know where you stay. Sharath

My wife, aged 45 years, is suffering from osteoarthritis and is having acute pain on the right leg now. She had this problem initially on her left leg since the delivery of her second child and has been diagnosed as the above condition and was under medication (both ayurvedic and allopathic) for a few months till the pain got subsided. As this problem persists, we have already consulted with an orthopedic about the nagging pain and he has suggested a knee replacement surgery based on the x-ray images taken recently. We request an opinion from you on the alternative ways available (for instance, ayurvedic).

At 45 years it is unlikely that the cause of your wife problem is osteoarthritis. Her diagnosis needs to be confirmed by a proper evaluation by a rheumatologist. Please meet a good rheumatologist before going in for ant surgery. This is because in case her problem is due to some other disease other than osteoarthritis then she is likely to have problems in the knee again EVEN after surgery.

Osteoporosis is very common in patients with rheumatoid arthritis. It also increases the risk of fall and thus the risk of fracture due to imbalance. It needs to be assessed by a rheumatologist and appropriate treatment needs to be provided. Please let me know where you are and I can provide the reference of a local rheumatolgist

Low dose methotrexate is what is used in rheumatoid arthritis. Just like low dose asprin is used in patients with stent. BOth are safe when used together. High dose methotrexate i.e. more than 45 mg per week or high dose aspirin i.e. more than 325mg per day can cuase problems when taken together.

There is no known relation between drinking and osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is a mild disorder which is usually treated by weight loss, regular exercise as well as knee muscle strengthening exercises.
