Tendinitis, the inflammation of a tendon, occurs at the joints of the human body, including the ankle, knee, hip, wrist, elbow and shoulder. Commonly the result of a repetitive stress injury or from overuse, tendinitis occurs where a muscle attaches to a bone. Tendons, like ligaments, are made of fibrous soft tissue, which is strong and flexible, yet can cause pain when injured. Several homeopathic remedies are available to treat and reduce the pain of tendinitis. Consultation with a qualified practitioner should be sought for chronic conditions. Ruta Graveolens The pain associated with tendinitis that will respond particularly well to Ruta graveolens is one of feeling bruised or beaten. Similar to the symptoms of Rhus tox, a person needing Ruta for treatment of inflammation will feel worse from cold air or applications, and worse in wet weather. However, pain is relieved by motion, or activity of the affected part.

Mr. lybrate-user, Diabetes if not well controlled almost always causes frozen shoulder as a complication. Primary need therefore is to achieve a strict blood glucose control with FBS closer to 100 mg, PP 150 to 160 mg & HbA1c%<6.8. Problem of loose motion may or may not be linked to diabetes. Sometimes gastrointestinal problems may be seen in diabetes. Suggestions or advise can be given only if all the necessary details are made available including FBS, PP HbA1c%, dietary habits, extent of exercise, current medications with dosage. Thanks.

Take vitamin supplements and eat fresh fruits. Regular exercising will also help. Join a gym if possible. Get your blood pressure and sugar checked. If you need I can prescribe you nutritional supplements to overcome this lethargy.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

X rays of both knee joints (digital) this could be due to oa knee &/or obesity. Physiotherapy along with medicines will help. Do knee exercises. It may have to be further investigated 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 multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days caldikid plus (mankind) 1 tab odx10days you will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Don't ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

How to get rid of the pain in knee due to arthritis or due to anything other effect the person is facing in knee?
Hello, We can't reverse the established pathology back, but we can control the process in the stage it is so that it wouldn't grow further. Medication: Take Schwabe's Biocombination-19/ thrice daily and apply Topi-MP gel over the knees. Apart from this, light walk daily and physiotherapy will also relieve your pain.
