Lybrate-user ji aapane apni mom ki age aur weight nahi bataye. Knee pain k liye ye bahot jaruri hai. Your mom need to reduce weight. Along with it she also need to undergo knee replacement surgery. Now a days you can undergo such surgery with 4 or 5 days hospitalisation only. Consult a gud orthopaedic surgeon of your town who is doing knee replacement surgery. And let your mom undergo this surgery.

Hi as orthopaedician suggested you must b having tear of pisterior cruciate ligament. And the drug which he prescribed is an antiinflamatory drug usually used in arthritis pain. This wil surely help you. If you are gud with this drug its ok. Bt you can not take this drug for a long time. And if you are not wel with the drug you can undergo a surgery to repair your ligament by arthroscopy.

Ayurvedic Treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disorder in which the body recognizes the body's own system as foreign and produces an inflammatory reaction. The synovium which is the space between the bones and the joints and contains a lubricating fluid which allows easy movement of the joints.

Inflammation of this space leads to painful, swollen joints that can also turn red and become stiff over a period of time. The joint surfaces can gradually progresses to produce deformities (the swan-neck deformity of the hand for instance) and disability.

Because it is an autoimmune disorder, the exact etiology is not known but lifestyle, stress, cold weather are supposedly predisposing factors. That being the case, it is not surprising that ayurveda has a variety of options, both in terms of do's and don't's to manage rheumatoid arthritis - both the severity of symptoms and further progression of the disease.

Do's: a well-planned diet will help by supporting optimal functioning of the immune system and nourish the affected joints.

People diagnosed with ra should follow a diet that is rich in fruits and vegetables. Drumsticks, bitter gourd, carrot, papaya, green leafy vegetables, cabbage, etc, reduce inflammation and hyperactivity of the immune system. The antioxidant properties in these neutralize the free radicals circulating in the body (responsible for increasing inflammation). This helps control the longstanding inflammation of the joints
It is also advisable to eat them as whole fruits and not as juices. The fiber in the whole fruits helps digestion
Sprinkle pepper powder over cooling food items like cucumber and radish
Include garlic which is an excellent remedy for ra, can be mixed with buttermilk
Whole grains such as wheat, brown rice, millet, barley are beneficial for ra, their high fiber content helps in proper digestion and promotes regular bowel movements
Honey mixed with water
Drink boiled milk to which dry ginger powder is added; this can replace tea and coffee
Milk mixed with turmeric powder is also helpful in controlling inflammation
Work at reducing weight
Don'ts: in addition to adding the above to your diet, there are some things to avoid, which can worsen symptoms of inflammation.

Avoid overall unhealthy and irregular diet habits which affects the immune system and aggravates symptoms
Avoid sleeping during daytime and staying awake at nights
Avoid deep fried foods and fermented food items
Given its autoimmune nature, it is better to avoid regular allergy-inducing foods like dairy products, soy, peanuts, processed foods, artificial additives, etc. These could trigger an enhanced allergic reaction.
Avoid alcohol, tobacco
Avoid tea and coffee and other caffeinated drinks
With simple daily food habit and lifestyle changes, the severity of ra can be managed effectively.

Kindly show me your investigation reports. If it is really gout, then febucip 40mg (cipla) bd should help you. Also take caldikind plus (mankind) 1 tab odx10 contact me again for follow up. You have to change your life style no smoking, no alcohol, no non veg food, no late nights, no severe work outs/dances etc. Etc. Ciploric should never be stopped suddenly. Take at least 1 month to wean it off completely.

Would you please explain what an autoimmune disease is? I have been told this is the cause of my arthritis.

Dear Mr. Lybrate-user, Rheumatology is a field of medicine which deals with autoimmune diseases. Auto-immune means diseases in which your immune system which usually protects you, gets automatically activated and starts damaging your own organs. All organs can be affected with rheumatic diseases - joints (most common), spine, skin, muscle, eye, lungs, kidney, blood etc. Because joints are most commonly involved, rheumatologists are also called joint / arthritis specialists / immunologists. They are detectives who can detect more than 100 types of arthritis. Rheumatic diseases can be very serious. They can affect child and young people also. Timely treatment is necessary to prevent joint damage, avoid joint surgery and even save life.
