Hi lybrate-user. It can be early arthritis. Your physician or orthopedician or rheumatologist can check for any signs of joint effusion (swelling) or inflammation. Pain not decreasing even on rest, early morning stiffness may be an important clue history wise. How you can prevent it is not clearly proven, but there seems to be some place for maintaining oral hygiene, increasing intake of omega 3 fatty acids, avoiding smoking if you have the habit. Get an appointment with a rheumatologist preferably. Early diagnosis and aggressive management go a long way in saving your joint. All the best.

Living With Arthritis - Foods To Pick OR Kick

Living With Arthritis - Foods To Pick OR Kick
Foods to eat/ avoid for arthritis and inflammatory pain

Different foods have different properties. Here are some foods to have and a few you must refrain from if you are suffering from arthritis and inflammatory pain:

Include these foods in your diet.
1) cherries - these contain anthocyanocides which assist in lowering uric acids, thus reducing the level of pain.
2) ginger - eating fresh ginger of drinking ginger root tea is advisable if suffering from arthritis and inflammatory pain. The gingerols present in it include anti-inflammatory compounds which are extremely helpful.
3) pineapple - there exists in pineapples, an element called bromelain which is a very effective anti-inflammatory.
4) raw apple cider vinegar - anti-inflammatory properties of raw apple cider vinegar are also very beneficial. It can be consumed by drinking a tablespoon of the vinegar mixed in about 250ml water or as salad dressing.
5) turmeric - turmeric or as we call it haldi, has anti-oxidant as well as anti-inflammatory properties.
6) omega 3 fatty acids - omega 3 fatty acids also have anthocyanocides. Which lower the levels of uric acids. Eating more of chia seeds, flax seeds and fish is also encouraged.

And the foods to avoid are,
1) sugary foods - sugary foods are like toxins which cause inflammations and lead to more pains in the body. Hence, avoid foods with excessive sugar when suffering from arthritis and inflammatory pain.
2) omega 6 oils - these oils, if consumed in high amounts, cause inflammations. It is advisable to replace these foods with healthier foods.
3) fried foods: deep fried foods are cooked at high temperatures and thus induce inflammation.
4) salt - this happens to some people where excess intake of sodium increases the pain in the joints. Hence, lowering consumption is not a bad idea.

My ra level is 1400 what do I do to decrease it?

MD - General Medicine, Fellowship in Rheumatology
Rheumatologist,
Ra level is a value to indicate whether you have disease or not, only when you have symptoms compatible with arthritis. Do you have pain; swelling of small joints of hands with early morning stiffness? if so. Consult your nearest rheumatologist. The value of ra level is not that important once it crosses 3 times the normal limit.

Is rheumatoid arthritis really incurable ?

MD - General Medicine, Fellowship in Rheumatology
Rheumatologist,
Rarely rheumatoid arthritis may be monocyclic. In which case it does not come back especially when treated aggressively. Or viral arthritis/reactive arthritis may be labelled as rheumatoid arthritis in which case again it is cured and may not come back. However majority of the times, if properly diagnosed, its a long term affair. Treatment success and duration is best decided by a rheumatologist. Treatment starts from the acceptance of the fact that rheumatoid arthritis majority of times can be very well controlled similar to diabetes and hypertension. But cannot be cured completely. You are not alone. Research is on to find cure. Lets hope it bears fruit.

Back ache needs thorough assessment. You need to consult a rheumatologist before coming to a diagnosis of arthritis with back pain. Did you? if so what treatment are you on? it can be managed very well. Do post a private question with all your details for help from my side. All the best.

Hi I am 62 year old. I was diagnosed with rheumatoid arthritis almost 6 yrs backand I had been taking lefra and folvite since then. Also last year I was diagnosed of shingles and for that I was given some wrong medication which reacted and I was hospitalized for 15 days. I have become quite weak after this. Since then I am not taking any other medicene other than lefra and folvite. From almost last one month I am again feeling that arthiritis pain in my hand. Can you please give any suggestion?

Acute flareups. Feeling arthritis pain in your hands. Is managed well by a bridging course of steroids and also increasing the dose of lefra or adding another dmds depending upon the clinical findings. Do consult your nearest rheumatologist

My husband is a ra patient past 2 years. he is 35 yr old .he taking medetion only at the paining time is that correct and what should do next?

Fellowship in Rheumatology, MD - General Medicine

Intermittent treatment invariably leads to poor outcomes. Do we extinguish fire stub in our house at the beginning or after the entire house is on fire and run for a fire engine? even if the fire engine arrives and extinguishes the fire. What remains is burnt out house. Similarly. Acting early and aggressively is important in arthritis. If we wait up for inflammation and swelling to occur and cause pain. Not only the inflammation leads to silent destruction of the joints and irreparable damages. But also we will require higher doses of medicines. Regular intake of medications and maintenance of minimum possible blood levels of these medicines to avoid inflammation is the key. All the best. Remember. Time * inflammation = damage. Acting early and aggressively avoiding/minimizing inflammation is the key.

For your ready reference, I briefly describe my wife?s case. She is a 74-year- old housewife. She is a patient of chronic rheumatoid arthritis and osteoporosis and has been taking a steroid, wyslone 5 mg /day, for the last about 30 years and RISOFOC kit (calcium and vitamin D3) for osteoporosis for the last about two years. She has been taking other medicines also for hypertension (UDP 5 mg twice daily) diabetes (Glyson 5 mg thrice a day), high cholesterol (Zivast 20) etc. Now her BP and sugar levels are within the normal levels. She has terrible pain below the knee and above the ankle in the right leg and cannot walk. Her problem has been diagnosed as Rt side L5 radiculopathy and chronic steroid-induced neuropathy. An MRI done in Dec. 2014 showed L4-L5 Rt side foraminal compression. She has undergone a spine surgery on Dec. 29, 2014 and a transforaminal epidural injection at Rt side L5 level. Now she takes Lyrica 75 once every evening, tab Instrel ? thrice /day, tab Nexpro 20 twice /day, tab Rockbon once /day, and tab Mazetol 200 once in the morning, and tab Neurokind once at night. But there is no relief from the pain when she attempts to stand up and walk; there is no pain, however while she is in bed lying or sitting up. Please advise what can be done to alleviate the pain. Thanks for your attention and advice.

Relief on lying down.And pain present only on attempting to walk may indicate degeneration.In the knees or at the ankles due to prior arthritis. If possible do consult. Reevaluation may be of some help. Will try to help you in the best possible way.

If it is lasting for more than 6 months.Your arthritis naming has to be reevaluated.However the swelling in your knee has to be dealt with.If its long lasting. It indicates inflammation that may lead to damage at such a young age.Early diagnosis and aggressive management is the key.As time inflammation = damage.Prevent damage at any cost.If possible do consult me

Apart from steroids there are newer drugs known as biologics for Rheumatoid arthritis which are costly.Steroids also can be used at a low dose avoiding major side effects, using them in a wise manner on the advise of your doctor.Try discussing all your concerns and various treatment options with your Rheumatologist.
