I have not seen your other reports. But from your information you seem to have rheumatoid arthrits. You must be having more pain in the morning for 3-5 hours, pain is in hands and feet, there is no permanent cure for ra. But disease can be kept in control with diet, physical measures, prevention of injuries, medicines.

My friend is 20 years old  he has back pain for last 6 months what should he do to recover ?
Back ache can be due to several reasons. It can be muscular, related to disc degeneration or prolapse, joint irritation or nerve pinching. Most common is muscle pain due to tight and weak back and abdominal muscles. Keep a positive attitude, focus more on keeping good posture especially when sitting for long hours, use lumbar support. Take frequent breaks and stretch in between. Try changing sleeping habits. Try hot or cold therapy as tolerated. Wish you speedy recovery.

Some common home care techniques for knee pain that control inflammation and help to break the inflammatory cycle are protection, rest, ice, compression, and elevation, glucosamine supplement has also may help, I can prescribe a detailed treatment plan.

Orthopedist,
I am 23 years old I troubling with internal pain in my foot.
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have actually mentioned internal pain in your foot region. I will like to ask you which part of the foot are you talking about, is it the forefoot with involved toes, midfoot region or the hindfoot and region of heels because there are different causes of pain in different regions of foot. Also apart from pain, do you also have any associated swelling, skin redness or local warmth etc as well? what investigations especially blood tests like esr, crp, serum uric acid etc have been done and what management have you received till now for the existing problems? 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.

As I understand your problem is common with many people when they sit for prolonged periods in wrong postures and develop pain in lower back or neck. You are advised to stretch your legs while sitting for longer periods, excercise your body mucles by getting up in between and walk few stpes and again come to work. Place your table contents like computers etc. (if you use) at proper angles so that you do not get more curbed forward. Avoid pain relieving drugs and resort to proper back exercises / walking and massage of body parts. If you don't get relief it will be better to get your vitamin d from exposing yourself to sun and good diet containing vitamin d and calcium. Extension excercises of back muscles will also help.

Lybrate-user, if your wisdom tooth is incorrectly placed or stuck halfway and has not erupted fully because of improper positioning, you will need to get the wisdom tooth extracted to get rid of the problem. If it is incorrectly placed, it is better to get it removed at a early age.
