You must get yourself examined by a pain physician as the pain is now chronic. Your pain may be due to past injury, degenerative condition or an infection. Chances of your pain being infectious is high if the pain is accompanied or preceded by systemic signs like fever. Some viral fevers are known to cause joint pains even months after recovery. So visit a pain specialist and get yourself treated adequately.

Myopathy is usually a progressive disorder but sometimes it is self arrested. Do physiotherapy to prevent contractures & deformities. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Following may help inj dinabol 25 mg im weekly x 6wks. You will need other supportive medicines also. This disease does not affect the intelligence of the patient use your intelligence. You can work on computer etc. Keep your moral up.

I am 32 years old and since 2009 I was suffering from leg pain and was diagnosed as sciatic pain initially and was using some pain killers and anti biotic. The problem was resolved, but again in 2012 it repeated and doctors suggested to go for MRI scan and noticed that L5 disk bulge is there and suggested to take rest for one month (bed rest) and the problem was solved. But again in 2014 same problem occurred. This time it was ok with yoga course. But whereas, one doctor suggested to take complete health check up and he identified with the results that due to diabetes I was suffering all these days. Now blood sugar levels are 130 (fasting) and 200 pp.

Your problem seems to be due to the disc bulge that you mentioned. Its unlikely that diabetes would cause a typical scaitica pain which is one sided since so long. However your levels of blood sugar currently warrant treatment. If left untreated, it can aggravate your nerve problems.

I am able to walk 10 minutes only. After that I get pain in my left knee. Waiting for two second I continue my walking. May i know the reason ?

You are probably having early arthritis of the knee. Use hot bag, pain relieving gels. Avoid activities like jumping or jogging. Glucosamine supplements help to keep you knee better. You can ask an orthopedic surgeon to prescribe it for you. Get the help of a good physiotherapist. You can send me a photo of your xray for review. A little care will help to keep your knees healthy for a long time.

You haven't mentioned which joint effusion you have? there are many different treatment options for joint effusion, including both home care and physician-led care. The exact treatment will depend on the severity of the condition as well as the cause of it. Some treatments specifically look to address the symptoms whereas others look to combat the underlying cause. If your condition is being caused by an infection, then the doctor may prescribe antibiotics to fight the infection. Physiotherapy exercises are also effective in reducing effusion and stiffness of the joint. Some home remedies for joint effusion are: take any medications the doctor prescribes you. Be gentle with your joint. Rest, avoid activities that put pressure on your joint, while it is painful and swollen. Ice can help control pain and swelling. Apply an ice pack, wrapped in a cloth for 15 minutes every two to four hours. Elevation-raise your knee (or elbow, or foot) using pillows above the level of your heart. Manage your weight. If you are overweight, losing weight will help.
