I am 42 years old male. I have rheumatoid arthritis from last 3 months. What should i do? Please advise.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
Rheumatoid arthritis is a self limiting disease. Acute phase can be managed with medicines. Physiotherapy helps in preventing contractures & deformities. Keep your moral up! any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days caldikind plus (mankind) 1tab odx10days you will need other supportive medicines also. Do knee exercises it may have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. If no relief in 4-5 days, contact me again.

Please follow the steps. 1. Avoid coffee or tea after 6 pm 2. Before going to sleep take a bath 3. Drink a glass of milk. 4. Keep your mobile away 5. Don't think about why I am not getting sleep instead think I will sleep. Think positive 6. After laying in bed please be relaxed take deep breath in and out slowly. From 3 rd breath onwards concentrate fully on your breathing. Slowly think that your legs get relaxed then coming towards up. Your eyes gets relaxed your eyes feels heavier and heavier. Now you feel sleepy. You are now on sleep. If you do this regularly for 1 week. Sure it becomes a habit in your life and your insomnia is solved. I treated lot of insomnia patients and are now well satisfied.

Gastritis, lung & sinus infection may also be the cause of bad smell in the mouth. 90% of bad breath is due to a dirty tongue. We need more investigations with clinical examination to decide upon treatment. You may need deep cleaning. Rinse your mouth thoroughly with a mouth wash until then. Advance procedures can be done with laser too. Dental tips: - visit a dentist every six months for cleaning and a thorough dental check-up. Limit sugary food to avoid tooth decay. Gargle your mouth thoroughly after every meal. Scrub gently to clean your tongue with a tongue cleaner. Floss all your teeth inter dentally & brush twice daily, morning & night, up & down short vertical strokes, with ultra-soft bristles, indicator brush. Tooth brush to be changed every 2 months.

Advice. 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. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Hi thanks for the query. From the complaints you had described it could be problem with the knee cap. This condition is common in middle young age people which is due to softening of the joint lining of the knee cap. Initially I would advice to start some knee strengthening exercises and observe. If it is not settling down better consult your orthopedician.

Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling. Practice yoga daily..

Hello Mr. lybrate-user! Your body weight is too much for your bones to carry. Ideal body weight for you will be 60-65 kg. Too much weight is damaging your knees to cause osteoarthritis. As an endocrinologist I can help you losing this extrabody weight. For that I have to examine you and develop a treatment plan accordingly. It is good you do not have diabetes now, but obesity is a risk factor for diabetes and hypertension.

Dear, you r likely to suffering from arthritic changes, always mention your age! floor sitting n cross leg sitting will increase these arthritic changes n your knee conditions will b increased! avoid it! no drug can reverse arthritic changes! strengthen your muscles around knee joint! consult a physiotherapist for that.

At this age switching medicine is not advisable but supplementation of neurotonic herbs should be done. For the time being Stresscom dabur (ashwagandha extract) and vishtinduk vati both 1 b.i.d. With hot milk/ water should be given initially for 15 days. Intestinal cleaning should be done every week by taking Erand tel 10-15 ml in hot milk at night.
