Asked: I'm suffering from mild joint pain specially in small joints in fingers. RA factor is positive. Kindly advice.

Asked: I'm suffering from mild joint pain specially in small joints in fingers. RA factor is positive. Kindly advice.
Hello I would like to mention about some of the ENERGY CONSERVATION STRATEGIES (ways to reduce joint stress and reduce pain) which will help to reduce the joint pain in fingers: 1. Must try applying the combination of ICED water and Warm water one at a time for about 10-15 minutes. Place both the hands in warm water first for 10 minutes followed by iced water for 3 minutes and end with warm water immersion again for 10-15 minutes. This will reduce pain and relax painful muscles around small joints in fingers. 2. Make use of larger joints around the wrist instead of using small finger joints. Examples: lifting bags with both the hands and keeping close to the body, opening the door knob using all the fingers around the knob 3. Open and close fingers, bend all fingers backwards only till the point of pain. Can do this for 5-10 times with gentle speed in a day. Preferably early morning to avoid stiffness and more pain 4. Squeeze all your fingers on a towel within the painful limits. Perform 3-5 times initially and after pain subsides, continue for 6-10 times. Feel free to ask questions later on. Take care.

Nerve and Brachial Plexus Injury

DNB, MCh - Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, MS - Plastic Surgery, MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Delhi

Hello, everyone. I am Dr Anubhav Gupta. I am a consultant cosmetic surgeon at Sir Gangaram Hospital, New Delhi.

Today I am going to discuss the nerve and brachial plexus injury.

What is nerve Injury?

In our body, from the brain to all other parts there is a network of nerves which sends the signal and tell us what to do. So if there is any injury in the network of filaments called nerves, then it is called as nerve injury.

What is Brachial Plexus?

A brachial plexus is a group of nerves which helps our hands to function. It starts from the spinal cord through the shoulder to the arm and to the hand. If there is any particular part which damages the neck that is called as Brachial plexus injury.

How long should I wait before being evaluated by my physician after the injury?

Whenever this nerve injury happens, these are the closed injuries. You will not see anything on the surface but you may have paralysed or weakness of a particular part. So as soon as the weakness, there is some numbness or there is paralysis of any part of the body. You should immediately contact your plastic surgeon.

Can a Brachial plexus injury be treated?

If you would have asked this question 20 years ago, then I would have said NO. But now, it is possible to treat them and with very good results.

What will happen if I do not take any treatment?

See what happens is, all the muscles in the body are innervated. If there is any injury in the nerves then it will cause weakness and ultimately paralysis of these muscles. Now, these muscles become paralyse then all these joints become stiff. S it is like a machinery if the current is not going then ultimately you will end up with that particular part of body useless.

How long does it take to after the nerve surgery for the function to return?

This is a very good question. Most patients do not realize. Basically, it is a scientific fact that whenever we have an injury to a nerve. Let us say suppose there is an injury to this level, then the part which is distilled to this becomes degenerated. When we repair, when we do the surgery, it gradually moves. It moves with the speed of 1mm per day after a latent period of 1 month. So approximately 2.5 cm (1 inch) per month. So it takes few months to function. Immediately after the surgery, you cannot expect the movement of the hand. It takes some time and it is scientifically calculated that how it comes.

 

If you have any queries related to nerve issues, you can contact me through Lybrate.

It needs to be investigated. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Physiotherapy usually helps any way take paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. It may have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.

Osteoarthritis: Why it is not just the disease of the OLD?

Osteoarthritis: Why it is not just the disease of the OLD?

Osteoarthritis: Complications and risk factors

Osteoarthritis is the most common form of arthritis. It affects millions of people around the world and is caused due to the gradual wear and tear of the protective cartilage at the end of your bones. The condition most commonly affects the joints in the hands, knees, hips and spine although it can damage any joint in the body.

The symptoms of osteoarthritis develop slowly and get worse with time, and include pain during and after physical activities like movement. The joints may become tender and may pain even with the application of light pressure. Stiffness and loss of flexibility are some of the other symptoms. The loss of cartilage due to gradual wear and tear causes the condition. It causes the smooth surface of the cartilage to become rough, giving rise to friction.

Some of the risk factors involved that can increase your chances of developing the condition are:

  • Old age - The chance of osteoarthritis increases with a person's age.
  • Sex - A study concluded that women are more likely to develop the condition. Although there isn't an established reason, lesser physical activity is attributed as a possible cause.
  • Obesity - Having excessive body weight can be a contributing factor. This is because it puts added pressure on the weight-bearing joints, such as the hips and the knees.
  • Joint injuries - Joint injuries contracted due to sports activities, accidents or other such factors can increase the likelihood of this condition.
  • Genetics - In some of the cases, the condition is observed to be passed from generation to generation.
  • Bone deformities - Some people who are born with bone deformities and defects can have greater chances of having this condition.
  • Other diseases - Having diseases like diabetes and gout can increase the risk of the condition.

Some of the complications of this disease are:

- Joint pain and stiffness may cause hurdles in daily activities. Daily activities like changing clothes can be painful.
- Some people are unable to work any longer. Joint replacement surgeries are advised by doctors in these cases.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Hypothyroidism can lead to a wide spectrum of issues like myalgia, fatigue, weight gain etc. For your joint pain, initially you can start with anti inflammatory medications, start with intensive physical therapy, take adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation and let me know in 2-3 weeks time how you are feeling. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hi... R2-10 is antilipid tablet.. While Telmisartan is Antihypertensive...so both are different medicines... My advise is to start her on homoeoapthic treatment otherwise the dose of telmisartan will go on increasing and she have to take more than one tablet as they are no curing hypertension ever.. they just control it..

Back pain may be due to strain, sprain, weather change etc. *Avoid bending forward while working on lap top or for any other work. *Don’t sit continuously working on laptop etc. Get up periodically and move around. *Restrict bike driving as far as possible. *Don’t carry laptop or any load on your shoulder. Carrying very light loads equally with both hands is better *Sit straight so that back bone gets proper support. A dining chair is better than a laid back sofa. *You can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good *Soft bed will not give proper support to your back bone. Hard bed with thin mattress and thin pillow is better. *Get yourself tested whether you have spondylitis problem. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. To start with, take Rhus tox 200--once daily in the morning and evening for 6 days.
