My mother has severe pain in knees nd jointsafter recovery from chikungunya. Pl suggest some quick remedy for her.
Hello, My mother is 53 years old, 58-kilo weight and blood pressure usually comes around 130/80. She is suffering from Rheumatoid arthritis fro last few years. We have consulted many doctors and finally she is better but x-ray report shows that there is no gap left between the knee bones because of which she is not able to walk properly so we went to a new doctor and he told us that her current medicines contain the steroid. I have attached her medicines name and have tried my best not to reveal anything about the doctor. I am not trying to point out anything towards the doctor but just for my satisfaction can you please tell some points: 1. Do they really contain steroid? How harmful is that? 2. Are these medicines harmful to health? 3. Please go through the injections name also and let me know are they harmful? Thank you !
I'm 28 years old male having pain in just at the lower portion of knee. I made x-ray but there is nothing abnormal in that particular area.

I am 38yrs old woman. I have problem in my knee since childhood. My patellas are dislocated and as doctors told in childhood ligaments are also loose. As a result often the patella used to get twisted and I used to fell down and after that it was tremendous pain. The same problem persists today also. As I gained weight after birth of 2 children, the pain is now unbearable. Doctor suggested some physiotherapy for temporary relief in my childhood. What is the permanent remedy for this problem?
Hi doctor, On 2015 aug I had a ACL surgery. Post surgery 3 months I did some moments as per physiotherapy suggestions, after that I don't have enough time for physical exercise. But Now I am feeling some type of sound while folding the leg, is MRI scan required to know the problem.
Psoriasis appears as patches of silvery scales or red areas on the legs, knees, arms, elbows, scalp, ears and back. Toes and fingernails can lose their luster and develop ridges and pits. Often hereditary, this condition is linked to a rapid growth of cells in the skin’s outer layer. These growths on the epidermis never mature. Whereas a normal skin cell matures and passes from the bottom layer of the skin to the epidermis in the bout 28 days, psoriatic cells from in about eight days, causing scaly patches that spread to cover larger and lager areas.

3 symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis to watch out for
Rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic disorder in which the small joints of the hands and feet of the affected person get inflamed. It affects the lining of the joints and causes pain and swelling that may lead to joint deformity and erosion if left untreated.
This disorder of the autoimmunological system occurs when the body's immune system attacks the body's own tissues.
Although this medical condition usually causes joint problems only, sometimes it may go on to affect other body organs like skin, lungs, eyes and blood vessels as well.
Some of the signs and symptoms that are indicative of rheumatoid arthritis are:
1. Problems in the joints
One of the most common symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis is swelling of the joints that become tender and painful. During the early days, only the smaller joints are affected, especially the finger and toe joints. However as the disease worsens, the symptoms spread to other body parts like knees, wrists, elbows, ankles etc. Joint redness and warmth are also characteristic features of rheumatoid arthritis. It is also recognized by joint deformity and stiff joints.
2. Fever, fatigue and loss of weight
Fatigue is a common symptom of rheumatoid arthritis. It may be a result of the body's reaction to insomnia, anemia, and inflammation. It may also be caused due to loss of appetite and the consequent and unintended weight loss. Sometimes rheumatoid arthritis is also accompanied by fever.
3. Rheumatoid nodules
Another symptom of rheumatoid arthritis is the presence of firm bumps of tissues under the skin on the arms. These bumps are known as rheumatoid nodules and may be painful. The nodules may come and go depending on the severity of the disease at a particular time. During flares, they may appear, and they may subside during the periods of remission just as all the other symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis.
