My mother is 54 years old And she is having severe knee pain What is the reason? And solution?

My mother is 54 years old And she is having severe knee pain
What is the reason?
And solution?
Hello, Your mother may be suffering from Osteo-Arthritis, get an X-ray (knees) done to rule out. 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: For the time being give her Schwabe's Biocombination-19/ thrice daily and apply Topi-MP gel over the knees. Daily intake of calcium (milk, milk products, green leafy vegetables) is mandatory for her as bones get weak at this time. Calcarea Phos. 6x/ thrice daily can also be given to her Apart from this, light walk daily and physiotherapy will also relieve your pain.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. This type of pain can be due to a nerve getting impinged somewhere usually in cervical spine region. But it can also be due to a shoulder pathology. My advice is: - star physiotherapy with tens as a modality - take an anti-inflammatory medication for 3-5 days - you can also use hot packs at home for an inflammed area normally the pain should improve in 10-14 days time, in case it is increasing then kindly let me know asap. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Well I have seen unstable angina and mild heart attacks getting controlled through lifestyle modifications like food, exercise and reducing exposure to pollution. No stress, no smoking. But you have symptoms of pain on left arm with tmt positive and angiography showing blockages, you have asthma also. Remember heart and lungs is one unit and fall in levels of oxygen in blood due to asthma can trigger a heart attack. Get help from a specialist asap, there is no need to fear a cardiac procedure to remove blockages, or a bypass surgery if needed when blockages are diffuse or more than 2 regarding gerd, you have to alter your food habits.
