I an 25 years old female, I do have a problem of swelling on face, though I don't have thyroid problem.

MBBS
General Physician,
Dear as per your ht and wt it is perfectly alright. Regarding your swelling of your face is it swelling or puffyness. Do you use too much of make up and go out under sun in that case you shoud use sungoggles orbefore going out apply sunscreen lotion.

As I have arthritis, some doctors says operation some say medicines but medicines are not working anymore. Knees keep swelling and i'm unable to walk. Will ayurveda treatment cure this or not? If yes then from where and if not what is the solution for this apart from operation.

The pain relief depends on the condition of the knees and general health and any other aliments if present. You have to choose a system of medicine and take the treatment for some months. The results may vary as each individual is born different with a definite genetic make up. I suggest you to try homeopathy for a few months as it safe and harmless. A detailed history is needed for us to start the homeopathic treatment. You can ask for private consultation with me for further details.

Sir For last few months I am having a tremendous pain on my knee joints so kindly suggest for the same.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
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. A bag of frozen peas also works well as a cold compress. You can opt for alternating hot and cold compresses as well for chronic pains.

Knee Replacement Education

BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Pune
Knee Replacement Education
The knee has to support the weight of the body as you run, walk, jump and climb stairs. The stress on the knee means that knees are more frequently injured than other joints.

Knee replacement surgery can make a dramatic difference for those with severely painful knee joints. More than 90 percent of individuals who have total knee replacements report significant pain relief, improved mobility and better quality of life.

In the past, patients between 60 and 75 years of age were considered to be the best candidates for total knee replacement, but improvements in artificial knee technology and surgical techniques have made knee replacement an option for both elder patients as well as younger patients.

In a traditional total knee replacement, the damaged areas of the femur, tibia and kneecap are removed and replaced with prostheses. Patients whose joint damage is limited to one area of the joint may be candidates for partial or unicompartmental replacement.

My report hlba27 is positive and one Dr. said for recover it wil take 1 year. My issues is my back and thai are paining.

A positive test means HLA-B27 is present. It suggests a greater-than-average risk for developing or having certain autoimmune disorders. An autoimmune disorder is a condition that occurs when the immune system mistakenly attacks and destroys healthy body tissue. An abnormal result may be caused by: ankylosing spondilylitis Arthritis related to crohn's disease or ulcerative colitis Psoriatic arthritis (arthritis associated with psoriasis) reactice arthritis or Reiter's syndrome Sacroiliitis (inflammation of the sacroiliac joint) uveitis If there are symptoms or signs of an autoimmune disease, a positive HLA-B27 test may confirm the diagnosis. However, HLA-B27 is normally found in a small number of Caucasians and does not always mean you have a disease. you can take tab. combiflaim sos.

Dear lybrate-user, do you go for jogging everyday or you have started only recently. If you have started jogging only recently then I think you need to do warm up and stretching exercises first and the start jogging other wise you will have muscle cramps and other complications like tendinitis and even tear of tendons. But if you are a regular jogger and having recent onset of pain then better consult an orthopaedic surgeon.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Actually surgery for prolapsed disc is required when there are some neurological symptoms or there is significant back pain not relieved by normal conservative treatment. I will like to see a detailed neurological assessment, with x rays and if possible mri scans so that I ca advise accordingly. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Hi lybrate-user, your comdition could be plantar fascitis either due to osteophytes or thinning of sole pads. I'd suggest doing ice fomentatiom along with silicon sole support & padding in shoes. If you still continue to have pain even after doing this visit a interventional pain specialist or orthopedician for further diagnosis & treatment.
