If meniscus tear is grade 3 or grade 4 and if there is catching sensation and difficulty in squating and cross-legging then surgery is required.

For ankle pain what is and when is warm (warm water etc.) and when is cold (ice) sake is recommended and why.

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Cold fomentation is recommended for any fresh injury for the first week of injury, so that the vessels constrict and the blood that is leaking from the vessels is stopped and further spread of pain and swelling is contained. After the blood has clotted and healing started, hot fomentation opens up the vessels and helps in healing and prevents stiffness.

There is nothing to do with medicines for limping it is purely pathological and poor rehabilitation a good rehabilitation on advise of surgeon's (who operated on ur- thr) and gait training exercises may correct to certain extent as it is 2 1/2 years old of post surgery weight should be 62 kg is ideal for you.

Not all patients of joint pain need surgery. Most of them can be managed without joint replacement. Physiotherapy along with medicines helps rule out diabetes, vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with a soft bedding on it. Any way take caldikind plus (mankind)1tab odx10days paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days do knee exercises. Gradually develop your walking & standing stamina. It may have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take.

You should continue your physiotherapy if you are having pain. Few things I would like to tell you, firstly when you sleep turned to one side you should try to bring your knees close to your chest by folding your hip and knees and keep a pillow between your thighs. When you sleep straight with your face facing the ceiling, you should try to keep your legs folded by putting 2-3 pillows bellow your knees. This will keep your back relaxed in night. Even when you sit for long hours you should keep some foot rest bellow your feet so that you knees are slightly above the level of you seat. Try avoid long hours travelling.

I suggest you follow the below for your condition: take mag phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and ice packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately.

How can a person with arthritis cope with it? How to get rid of rheumatoid arthritis. Please help.

DM - Rheumatology, MD - General Medicine
Rheumatologist, Mumbai
Ra is one of the most treatable arthritis currently and you should consult a rheumatologist if possible in person who are specialised at treating diseases like ra. The therapy of ra has advanced if you continue to get substandard treatment all your joints will get destroyed and you won't be able to reverse that. Also ra is a disease which can affect multiple systems and potentially life threatening. Its a misconception that ayurvedic drugs in ra have no side effects. Following are issues with it 1) most so called ayurveda specialists give you powder which are unlabelled which basically can be steroids/allopathy, you can never tell the difference 2) ayurveda drugs contain gold and lead (for which maggi was banned) both of which can have serious side effects 3) gold tablet are still used in allopathy outside india but they are used as last resort, not as first drug unlike ayurved 4) allopathic rheumatologists, treat ra to an extent so that all symptoms go away, they try to give you medicines with monitoring and avoiding side effects 5) most ayurvedic specialists take allopathy when they have ra.

My both knees have acute pain while claiming stairs and downing stairs, it is hard to use Indian toilets.
Hi, You may be suffering from severe arthritis. Please take out an MRI of the knees to know the extent of the damage occured to the joint and revert back with the reports. Time being, apply Rhumatil gel to the knees 3-4 times per day and give hot water fomentation. Do not take pain killers orally for long duration. Do not use Indian toilets and do not squat on the floor. Also get your serum calcium and Vit. D3 levels checked.
