I am 42 years old male, had a gout attack some 3 months ago. I was taking goutnil and feburic 40 mg tablets as advised by my doctor. At present I am taking only feburic 40 mg only once daily. I am complete vegeterian. What is the permanent solution?

Hi, there is no permanent cure for this, but definitely you can keep this under control by following 1. A strict diet chart 2. Abstinence from alchohol(if u drink). 3. Keep a check on sr uric acid levels. Every 3 or 6 months.

Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Also take calcium tablets for a limited period 2 months please consult after 10 days

Dear you are suffering from osteoarthritis of the knee joints. You will have to reduce your weight drastically by what ever means (consult a dietician). You must change your life style. Use a commode and avoid stairs. Learn exercises from a physiotherapist and spare time for doing them as you spare time for bathing, pooja or eating. They are simple and can be done any where. Even in office and while waiting for bus or metro. Do hot fomentation and apply a pain killer gel and support your knees with 6" crepe bandages 2 for each knee. Take a sachet of collaflex for about 3 months and a pain killer sos. If of no avail. Consult an ortho. Surgeon and get investigated and x-rayed. Take care.

Please expose your body in bright sunlight for at least 30 minutes daily Do morning exercises daily Too much AC exposure will lead to rheumatism. Take Mag phos 6x - 4 tabs thrice daily for some time Take a glass of milk daily.

Mri is advised if meniscus tear is suspected. You may be having osteoarthritis. First get knee x rays.

Since last two three weeks when ever I ride by bicycle for more than an hour there is a stress and tear on just above left calf muscles and it pains while bending the left knee if knee is straight there is no pain but when I paddle again while straightening the leg it pain just above the calf muscle and behind the knee, I have done cold therapy once I reached home please suggest a precaution or medicine.

Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, your description of the symptoms suggests to me that there might be a strain in the muscle which is bending the knee or a minor tear near its attachment. Treatment for both would be to to take rest from the activity which causes the pain for about 2 to 3 weeks. You should give some activity free time for the structure to complete it's healing process. If it persists even after adequate period of rest then I would recommend you to see an orthopaedician for a detailed examination.

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).

It's a cause of concern at this age. Get checked for osteoarthritis, arthritis etc. Get blood for uric acid, ra factor, esr etc and x-ray of knees. Send report. For the time being start hot water pouring on knees and some local liniment may be massaged gently. Start yoga postures slowly. Reduce wt.

If you have pain for less than 1 week, just take paracetamol 1 g twice daily for 3-5 days. If the pain is for a longer duration, then consult.

The best non invasive method to reduce pain is panchakarma. there are good procedures like janu vasti, which will reduce your pain & you will not need to go for surgery. Meet up with a panchakarma expert & he will guide you.

DEar Bhavesh, sir go for a complete detox of ur body with the help of ayurveda's Panchakarma therapy. It includes Abhyangam (Massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. this wud rejuvenate ur body - improving ur work efficiency and bettering ur sleep. It will also strengthen ur nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of ur body - cleansing ur body. Also take Shirodhara which would completely take the stress out of ur body and u will feel light, fresh and full of energy. strictly avoid all junks, oily -spicy food, pickles if u r eating, drink lots of water, juices or daily have fresh fruits. try to keep ur bowel clear.

Walking is good for health, It is true over activities cause wear and tear of Joints and muscles---- while doing for fitness you have to consider your day today activities Example: If your life is sedentary and you don't walk in day/ or you are confined to office chair only then it is good and there no harm If you walk 1 hr daily---- also if you are walking on treadmill please avoid walking on it more than 15 minutes daily, it may damage your knees, Thanks, buck up for your walking (It is a good habit)

1. Warm mustard oil or sesame oil (1 teaspoon) with 3-4 cloves of crushed garlic and 1 tsp of ajwain (carom) seeds until it roasts to a reddish brown colour. Ensure that it does not get burned. Massage this oil on your affected areas. After that do hot fomentation with salt potli (bag) once a week. 2. Drink plenty of milk, buttermilk daily and have curd daily in afternoon or with breakfast you will be alright. Take care. Good luck for your future.

I would like to know how to cope up the knee pain so that I can run for long distances.
FOr knee pain the best treatment course would be to undergo janu vasti at a panchakarma centre near u. after undergoing janu vasti, u shall be completely treated. if need the doc might prescribe you some ayurvedic medicines depending on your body type. Till then you can have drumstick soup daily. Also boil 2 pieces of garlic in 1 cup milk & 1 cup water. When 1 cup remains, strain & drink daily after adding 1 tsf cow ghee. If u want guidance on ayurvedic medicines, then you can consult me privately, with knee x ray image.
