Shelcal 500 mg daily once She stopped taking Folitrex in Sep 2014 as per doctors advice and She conceived in Dec 2014 and delivered a baby in Sep 2015. During pregnancy, RA pains were come down and after delivery Pains are increased and some swelling in the right wrist has also observed. At present she in my home town in Andhra Pradesh and she consulted Gynecologist before taking same medicines. And they suggested to consult any RA Specialist. Therefore I request you to suggest the best medicines because she is feeding the baby now .

Since she is feeding the baby, taking ayurvedic medicnes will be the best resort. Start massage with kottamchukadi tailam, followed by fomentation with a potali made of equal sand & salt. this will reduce the pain. u have to understand that RA is not curable even in AIIMS. So the best is to follow good dietary recommendations so that pain & swelling do not occur.

Hello, there are many causes behind backache *any strain or sprain in the muscles or ligaments of the back during lifting of heavy objects is the main cause of the lower back pain. *sitting in the wrong posture for a very long time is another cause. *people suffering from constipation may also suffer from lower back pain. *sometimes sleeping on wrong type of beds can also cause pain in the back. Follow the tips *take rest or move about once in 1-2 hours in case of working in a constant position. *maintain a good posture while reading or working with computers. *take a high fibre content diet like vegetables, fruits, etc.

He is 80 years old. He is suffering from pain in his left knee. Is there any natural remedy for it?
He is most probably suffering from oa of knee. Knee surgery-total knee replacement (tkr) is quite safe & gives uniformly good results, in our hands.Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Surgery should be done when patient is still active & will be able to take benefit of surgery. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. Kindly show me x rays before a final decision can be taken. You will be thoroughly investigated before surgery is under taken. Risk in surgery is less than the risk in crossing road.

Hi, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc and with no other associated constitutional symptoms like evening rise in temperature, loss of weight, excessive sweating at night etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. 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.

Based upon your symptoms, you may be experiencing some tightness in your muscles. Since it hurts with certain movements it is most likely mechanical and will respond to physiotherapy treatment. A physiotherapist can examine you and make sure that it is mechanical and your upper right back pain is not being caused by something else that needs medical attention. To get some temporary relief applying ice can help relieve pain. It is important to use ice as soon as any pain symptoms appear. Ice should only be used at 20-minute intervals. Anti-inflammatory medications can also alleviate pain and inflammation.
