36 years old male from Bangalore asked
My wife often complains pain in her elbows and knee joints. I had her ASO test done and the result was 1050 IU/ml. She is 28. Her parents and one of her sibling have history of joint pain, rheumatism. My wife has not taken any kind of medication or therapy regarding this in her life. Please help.
Please dont treat her for rheumatic heart disease. Aso is a misused test and patients are treated long term for no reasons. If she has pain and swelling in the elbow and knee joints, I would suggest you visit a rheumatologist and get it sorted out. Dont go on pencillin.

Well, if your disease is well controlled on it, continue the same. Try to go off medrol as it will affect your bones in the long run.

36 years old male from Patna asked
Hi. I'm suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for last four years. I m under treatment of rheumatologist. For last two years i'm taking hydroxychloroquinol sulphate 400. Having pain in left knee and fingers. My question is will this medicine cure my disease? i'm male 36 years. Unmarried.
Good evening. Well hcqs is a very mild medicine for rheumatoid arthritis. Firstly arthritis can be controlled, but to cure it is hard. For some people, it automatically goes into remission. If your symptoms are increasing you need to get your medicines adjusted.

I am 68 years male. I have problem of bending my left knee fully especially after walking. I also get pain when I stand for long duration. I regulalry walk 4 to 5 kms and also swim. What can be done for my knees?
Good evening. Well it looks like an early start of osteoarthritis. You should get an x ray done to see the aligntment and the joint space of the knee joint. Try working on your quadriceps muscles as well.
48 years old female from Faridabad asked
I am lady aged 47 years, suffering from rheumatoid arthritis for the last 10 years. Taking medicines as prescribed by my doctor. The medicines are alfa calanm, naproxen tablets ip 500 once daily (when pain and swelling). This I am taking after completing medicine course of hcqs. I am still having pain and swelling on my finger joints. Please suggest some remedy ?
l if you are a known case of rheumatoid arthritis these are not the medications you should be on. Naprosyn on long term is not good nor would it help control the disease. You need the medications for rheumatoid to control the disease do let me know your location so I can guide you to a rheumatologist regards
66 years old male from Haridwar asked
My age is 65 years and I have been treated for rheumatoid and taking nicosia tab 120mg daily and medrol 16mg once a week. But if I sit on chair for 2hours or more I get pain in my back. Please advise me.
Well, for rheumatoid nucoxia and medrol are not the good options. Considering your age it can have an impact on the kidneys. If it is rheumatoid you will have to take proper treatment for it like folitrax (methotrexate). Kindly consult a rheumatologist around you. Backpain is not a symptom of rheumatoid arthritis. So it has to be looked into. Regards.
A person asked
Good evening well you cant reduce your ra levels. Ra levels dont collaborate with the disease activity. If you have rheumatoid arthritis and your joint symptoms are better, that is what is needed. Ra levels we normally dont measure after first visit. Hope the information was useful do let me know for more queries regards
year old male from Bangalore asked
Hi, my mother is 60 year old and is sufferring from a type - 2 since 15 years. She has severe knee pains since four years. Kindly advice.
Good evening considering her age, it looks more of an osteoarthritis. However with diabetes it is neccessary to rule out other forms of arthritis as well. A examination would be helpful. If not possible, you can post a picture of the x ray of both knees (standing once). Avoid strong pain killers as it can harm the kidneys with diabetes as background.
A person asked
Good evening. Well, it looks like osteoarthritis. You need to cut down on your weight and start doing some physiotheraphy exercises to stregnthen the muscles. Avoid sitting on the floor, avoid indian toilets and cross legged position. Do let me know for more queries. Few medications also you can take which will help your case.
75 years old male asked
I'm a 75 year old male. I have osteoarthritis in my both knees. Some doctor suggest to go for knee replacement. Some suggest to have injection to delay the operation. How effective injection is and what injection you suggest. Please advise.
well for osteoarthritis, best is to do some exercises and take vitamin d and calcium supplements. Avoid taking any strong pain killers as it can affect the kidneys. Do let me know for more information you need regards Dr. Naval.
57 years old male from Hyderabad asked
Now rheumatoid arthritis is normal but my both knee legs are not opening straight unable to stand moving on wheel chair.
Good evening. The rheumatoid factor does not co relate with the disease activity. If your knees are locked, it means there is swelling and effusion in the knee joints. You need to consult your rheumatologist and an early action should be taken before it gets jammed in the same position. Do let me know for more queries.
20 years old male from Raipur asked
Well it looks like more of a ligament injury. You need to rest yourself for a bit and show it to orthopaedics.
A person asked
Good evening well you need to get an mri done if the pain and swelling are too bad. That will give us a conclusive evidence on how severe the injury is, what type of ligament is injured and if it will get benefitted with rest or it needs some intervention. Do let me know for more queries regards Dr. Naval.
