Sir, From the some day, my legs are so paining and I am not moving my leg from the pain. What should I do?
Leg pain may be caused by a number of different factors, including trauma, sciatica, or arthritis (among others). Ice is useful for the control of pain. It can be applied to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes as often as every two to four hours. Performing daily leg stretches is one activity that should be incorporated into your daily routine. Please see a Physiotherapist to know the root cause of your pain and pain management.

Rheumatoid Arthritis: A mystery solved with lucidity

Rheumatoid Arthritis: A mystery solved with lucidity

Vital notes:

  • RA is a chronic debilitating joint disease that affects small joints of hands and foot.
  • More common in females aged 20 to 50 years.
  • It is not synonymous with Rheumatic Fever which occurs in children aged less than 15 years.
  • It has got nothing to do with monthly Penicillin injections and checking ASO titre. Somebody on Penicillin injections or being checked for ASO titre should change the doctor immediately.
  • Untreated disease may cause deformity of hands and foot causing deterioration of quality of life.
  • Erosion of small joints along with loss of entire joint architecture is the basic disease process.
  • Early morning stiffness of joints along with swelling of one or more small joints of hands is very characteristic.
  • Treatment is done with Methotrexate, Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate, Sulfasalazine, Leflunomide and short courses of steroids.
  • Difficult diseases are treated with costly injections called biologics.
  • The motto of treatment is “ catch early, hit hard and achieve and maintain treatment goal “
  • Lung and cardiac complications are common in long term disease.
  • Rheumatologists but not the Orthopedicians nor neurologist are the best person to treat the disease.                    

 

Introduction:

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an autoimmune disease of mankind where the cells and molecules who are responsible for security of our body, misidentify the joint tissue as foreign substance and start destroying them similar to the way they usually do when a bacteria or virus enters the body. This misdirected attack towards our own body is called autoimmune phenomenon.

The worst affected parts of the body are the joints of hands and foot. These small joints that are responsible for performance of day to day activities like eating, holding, writing, typing, washing etc become painful and swollen causing stiffness and deformity.

This results in poor quality of life and subsequent depression. Early diagnosis and continuous treatment with specific medicines is cornerstone of treatment.

 

What are the symptoms?

Symptoms vary from person to person and also from early stage to late stage of the disease.

 In early stage there may be mild pain and stiffness involving 1 to 4 small joints of the hands and feet with a typical pattern of stiffness of those joints after rising from bed. During this phase it is very difficult to diagnose the disease. But it is very important to catch the disease in this stage. Researchers have proved that joint damage and bony erosions start even before the symptoms have manifested and hence earlier the treatments better the results.

In a full blown case of Rheumatoid arthritis the picture is very classical of a middle aged female presenting with pain and swelling of hand and foot joints along with early morning stiffness that responds to steroids brilliantly. Wrists and the knuckles are predominantly involved. Patients are unable to hold a pen or open the door or do cooking etc. Gripping the wrist firmly causes pain and the hand joints are warm.

In a advanced case of the disease we often find elderly people presenting with crooked hands with areas of permanent swelling and skin changes due to chronic friction. The skin fold may contract chronic fungal infections and the joints are swollen and painful.

A few other organs are damaged in silence and they create serious problem at the advanced stage of the disease. Lungs, Heart and Blood Vessels are frequently affected. There is accelerated cholesterol deposition in arteries of heart causing increased risk of heart attack and brain stroke. These patients frequently contract infections which are difficult to treat.

Involvement of spine or low back is uncommon. However, cervical spine or the neck region is the only part of the spine that may be affected in this disease.

 

What is the difference between Rheumatic Fever & Rheumatoid Arthritis?

There is a heaven & hell difference between these two entities. Rheumatic Fever is a disease of childhood. It usually occurs in children aged less than 15 years and is characterised by excruciating pain, swelling and redness of one or more big joints of arms and legs that responds excellently to Aspirin. This disorder may cause cardiac problems and is the leading cause of Valvular Herat disease in India. It is often characterised by some skin rashes and rarely neurologic problems. The disease process, the causative agent and the clinical symptoms are completely different from that of Rheumatoid arthritis.

 

Why Penicillin injections are given on a monthly basis?

Patients of Rheumatic fever often suffer a damage to the valves of the heart during the attack of Rheumatic fever. This damaged valves are potential sites of infections that may develop in the later part of the life. This infection is called Infective Endocarditis and may cause serious complications if not addressed properly. Penicillin injections are given as a form of prevention of development of this infection and have got no relationship with the wellness or cure of the disease. People who are aged above 15 years and are being treated with penicillin for the first time for joint pain occurring in small joints of hands should immediately change their doctor and consult a rheumatologist.

 

How is Rheumatoid Arthritis diagnosed?

Rheumatoid Arthritis is diagnosed by its classical symptoms and some laboratory investigations. To identify early rheumatoid cases we usually follow a scoring system which includes counting of number of joints involved, the duration of the symptoms, checking ESR and CRP in blood and looking for the positivity of Rheumatoid Factor and Anti CP Antibody. Patients with high values of Anti CP Antibody are very much likely to suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and also they are very much likely to suffer a aggressive disease course

 

Does each and every patient of rheumatoid arthritis develop crooked hands and foot?

No. Not all patients suffer from such a devastating complications. There are important characteristics which if present predict severe destructive disease. Females, Smokers, High values of Anti CCP or Rheumatoid Arthritis, Family History of Rheumatoid Arthritis, Early evidence of Joint destruction on X Ray are a few important features who will go forward to develop destructive disease.

 

How Rheumatoid Arthritis is treated?

Continuous Physical activity of the involved joints is the corner stone of treatment. More the joints are active, less the damage.

Cessation of smoking is mandatory. Smokers tend to develop early joint destruction

Medicines that used in treating rheumatoid arthritis are together called Disease Modifying Anti Rheumatoid Drugs or DMARDs.

Methotrexate, Hydroxychloroquine Sulfate, Sulfasalazine, Leflunomide are the principal DAMRDs. Of these, methotrexate is the backbone of therapy. Methotrexate is used on a once a weekly basis starting from a dose of 5 mg to 50mg/week and a weekly 5mg of Folic Acid supplement is given to neutralise the adverse effects of Methotrexate. The detail of the drugs is mentioned below.

 

Why I am being given Steroids?

Steroids are given for a short period of increased disease activity. In rheumatoid arthritis we do not prescribe steroids in a regular basis. It is often prescribed when the patient is put on the DMARDs for the first time and when there is break through pain or active disease during the treatment.

Steroids are used in low dose in a decreasing dosage pattern over weeks and usually are not continued more than a month.

 

What are Biologic agents? Why they are so costly?

Biologic agents are highly specific molecules who directly block the action of the culprit chemicals in our body that cause the joint destruction. They are highly researched molecule an d is manufactured abroad. They are usually available in injection formats and have their own side effect profile which includes reactivation of Tuberculosis and other opportunistic infections. Usually patients are checked for latent Tuberculosis Infections, HIV, Hepatitis B and C before the treatment is started.

Biologics cause excellent response to the disease causing alleviation of pain and swelling and sense of well being but unfortunately they do not provide any cure. Hence, if biologics are stopped then there are chances that the disease activity may worsen requiring more biologics or aggressive treatment with DMARDs.

Normally it takes three months to stand and walk because the bones take time to unite. Rest I can guide you by seeing X-rays. Physiotherapist is required for joint fitness and encourage for exercise.

Reason for all are different aswell. If you have confirmed hla b27 positive then only its ank spond & the reason is autoimmune.

Hello my father having hip joint pain and knee pain. Due to this he can not sit for long time and he feels sensation ...
Pain in the both hip and knee joints, with swelling, morning stiffness and clicking noises are all symptoms of arthritic changes. There are many causes if joint arthritis, but mostly as per your case they are age-related. The feeling of ants or "tingling numbness" as we call it is a sign of nerve compression or vascular insufficiency. Your father may need a detailed examination and investigations like x-rays, mri etc to know the root cause, the extent and also help plan a course of treatment. Till then light exercises, rest,cold fomentation will help. Do not try ti massage the area of kness with swelling as it may further damage his knee. Take care.

My father is 55 years old and he is suffering from neck pain and the inability of hand movement. After a few consultations, some doctors suggested that it is due to the frozen shoulder problem. They provided some exercise schedules only. Are there any other remedies except the exercises? If only this is the solution, which exercises are best to conduct on a routine basis? Thanks in advance.

The injury or strain to the tendons and muscles at the shoulder joint may cause the difficulty in mobility of rotator joint of shoulder (ball and socket joint). Commonly known as frozen shoulder. Radiating pain may felt at the neck also. The stiffness in neck muscle in long term will cause cervical spondylosis. Exercises with rotatory movement of the shoulder clock wise and anti-clock wise slowly and steady will improve the range of movements. Stiffness in the shoulder will ease with hot fomentation and application of warm sesame oil+ Castor oil mixture. Stand 1.5 ft far in front of the wall facing the wall. Slowly crowl the fingers of the hand on the wall to raise the shoulder comfortably and in that plane, rotate the shoulder circularly without folding the elbow. 5 each in both directions. Day by day increase the diameter of the circle. Do not use high pillow, use thin and firm pillow extending from upper back to support neck. Diabetic patient may take longer duration to recover, so, if diabetic, give attention to treat it effectively too.

I have left leg knee decoration. (Chondromalacia) what maybe the cause & is it an serious issue.
HI Mostly it is common in runners, or it can be due to injury.. Start Physiotherapy focusing on strengthening the quadriceps, hamstrings, adductors, and abductors can help improve your muscle strength and balance. Muscle balance will help prevent knee misalignment. Typically recommended are non-weight-bearing exercises, such as swimming or riding a stationary bike, isometric exercises . DO share your investigation reports for further consultation.

Is osteoarthritis a part of aging and is there away to reduce risks even after age 50?

MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
Osteoarthritis (OA), which is also known as osteoarthrosis or degenerative joint disease (DJD), is a progressive disorder of the joints caused by gradual loss of cartilage and resulting in the development of bony spurs and cysts at the margins of the joints. The name osteoarthritis comes from three Greek words meaning bone, joint, and inflammation.
