Your symptoms have been there since 1 week, would like to know were you suffering from any illness like fever etc before the onset of symptoms? is this the first episode of such kind of pain if your symptoms have been there since 1 week only with no other systemic symptoms, then I will ask you to take a short course of anti inflammatory medication, start calcium and vitamin d supplements as well.

This needs to be evaluated with few tests. Usually pain in ln smaller joints occur due to several reasons and there are chances of Rheumatoid arthritis or they may be due to some post-viral fever arthralgia etc. Also blueness of fingers in cold whether may be due to some condition like Reynaud's disease hence this needs to be evaluated with full set of symptoms hence please write back to me in more detail with all symptoms and associated symptoms to rule out the condition and advise you further.

It's advisable not to smoke for all people. Drinking and smoking is very dangerous combination. When body is suffering already because of Rheumatoid arthritis, why make it more prone for more suffering... Don't smoke don't drink, it will help you live better life. Otherwise your condition will deteriorate rapidly.

1.. 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. 2.. 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. 3.. 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. 4.. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. 5.. 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.

Osteoarthritis in Old Age - How It Can Be Prevented?

Osteoarthritis in Old Age - How It Can Be Prevented?

Are you aware of a disease called osteoarthritis that is more likely to develop in case you are aging? Osteoarthritis is a disease, which affects the joints of your body. It occurs when the cartilages that protect and cushion your bones break down, causing swelling and pain, and may make you immobile. The chances of developing osteoarthritis increase with age as your cartilages start breaking down. Women who are beyond menopause are at a higher risk of getting this disease as they do not produce estrogen, which is essential for bone growth. There are several precautions you should follow for the prevention of osteoarthritis, especially if you are aged. They are as follows:

  1. Manage your occupational risks
    • Certain jobs involve repetitive motions, which cause stress on your joints.
    • If your job or occupation involves a lot of lifting, twisting, kneeling, and walking, you should consult a doctor.
  2. Exercise
    • It is important for you to undertake exercises of low impact, which is very crucial for improving joint health, even if you are aging.
    • You should choose activities that involve strength training along with stretching and aerobic exercise.
    • Regular exercise helps in the slowing down or prevention of osteoarthritis. It helps you in maintaining healthy joints, reducing fatigue and pain, increasing your bone and muscle strength, and relieves stiffness.
  3. Maintaining a healthy body weight
    • Excess weight is a primary risk factor for osteoarthritis, especially if you are aged. It cxauses extra stress on your joints that boosts the deterioration of your joint cartilage.
    • If you are obese and overweight, your chances of developing osteoarthritis are more. Hence, you should lose extra weight for improving the symptoms.
  4. Rest
    • Although exercise is important for keeping your joints and muscles healthy, you should avoid overdoing them.
    • Have a balanced lifestyle, and when your joints become achy or swollen, give them a break.
    • Abstain from using your swollen joint for at least 12 to 24 hours after experiencing them. Letting your injured joint rest helps in reducing your risk of osteoarthritis.
    • Fatigue increases pain in osteoarthritis patients, and hence you must sleep properly.
  5. Control your blood sugar
    • Diabetes is considered to be an important risk factor for osteoarthritis in aged individuals.
    • High glucose levels may boost the formation of molecules that make your cartilage stiff.
    • Diabetes also triggers inflammation, and promotes cartilage loss.
    • It is important for you to keep your diabetes and blood sugar levels under control for preventing osteoarthritis.

In spite of no specific cure for osteoarthritis, there are several ways of preventing and managing its symptoms. It is very important for you to maintain a healthy lifestyle and a balanced diet, and also to try and keep away from becoming obese.

Arthroscopy - Things To Remember During and Post Procedure!

Arthroscopy - Things To Remember During and Post Procedure!

Literally translated into two words – arthro (joint) and scopy (to look), arthroscopy refers to a process used to look into a joint. The doctor uses an instrument known as arthroscope which is used to examine a joint in greater detail. What was initially used mainly in diagnosis has gradually grown to include use of instruments through the arthrocope, thereby allowing for some surgical treatments to be done as well.

Indications/uses:

  1. Diagnosis of joint problems like cartilage tears
  2. Repairing joint problems
  3. Remove foreign bodies in a joint
  4. Track response to treatments
  5. Identify disease progression
  6. Used during an open surgery to:
    • Remove fragments or spurs of tissues
    • Shave off sharp edges
    • Collect fluid or tissue samples
    • Remove swollen tissues
    • Take biopsy
    • Extract swollen joint fragments
    • Remove deposits of calcium or other minerals

Procedure:

  1. Usually done as an outpatient procedure
  2. The procedure in terms of what to expect will be explained to the patient
  3. A sedative is given and the area to be studied is usually shaven and topical antiseptic is applied
  4. Vital signs are monitored
  5. Regional or local anethesia is generally used, where only the joint to be studied is injecte with a local anesthetic.
  6. In cases where the patient is undergoing an open surgery, general anesthesia would be given.
  7. The patient’s position would depend on the joint being studied, usually, is made to lie on the back.
  8. A tourniquet is used to restrict blood flow to the particular joint
  9. A small incision is made in the joint space and the instrument is introduced into the joint space. There is a constant slow flow of saline or another irrigant (to which chlorhexidine might be added) to improve visibility and to remove debris and control infection
  10. Other joint tools are used as required during the procedure either to cut off small fragments of tissue or to remove debris or foreign body.
  11. Once all procedures are done, the joint is thoroughly flushed to clear off any debris.
  12. It is closed with stitches after final inspection
  13. During recovery, crutches or splints may be used depending on the patient’s overall condition
  14. Duration of the procedure depends on what actually was done. An inspection could last about 20 minutes while a procedure could take a couple of hours.

After the procedure:

  1. Complications are very rare, maybe painful operated joint for a couple of days
  2. Rest the joint well for a couple of days
  3. Ice, pain killers, and compression bandage may be required
  4. Return to normal activity and exercises to be followed as dictated by the orthopedist.
