Main Symptoms Of Fibromylagia!

Main Symptoms Of Fibromylagia!

Fibromyalgia is a condition characterised by chronic widespread body pains and increased responsiveness to pressure. Women are at a higher risk of suffering from this disorder than men. Fibromyalgia can be treated with physiotherapy, pharmacotherapy and combined efforts of physician and the patient.

Some of the symptoms that characterize this disorder are:

  1. PainFibromyalgia is characterized by pain that has no apparent reason. It can affect different parts of the body and presents itself in different ways. Some people may experience a stabbing pain while others complain of a persistent dull ache. This pain may be affected by climate changes or stressful situations. There is reduced threshold to pain, because of certain chemical ( neurotransmitters) abnormalities in brain. Pain is generalized, felt above and below the waist, right and left-side of body, arms, legs, neck and back. 
  2. Abnormal Sensitivity: Fibromyalgia patients are extremely sensitive to environmental changes that involve sight, sound and smell. For example, cigarette smoke can make a fibromyalgia patient extremely nauseous while loud music can give the person an instant headache. Lights that are brighter than normal can also make such a person feel uncomfortable. Patients have an abnormal sensitivity to pain, which leads to generalized aching of the body and tender points. 
  3. Muscle & Joint Stiffness: Fibromyalgia patients often experience stiff muscles and joints without any form of strenuous activity or other reason. This may be localised to one group of muscles or affect the whole body. For some patients, this pain is worse in the morning or when sitting for extended periods of time. However, moving around does not provide any significant relief.
  4. Chronic fatigue and exhaustion: There are two main reasons for a fibromyalgia patient to complain of tiredness. Firstly, the condition itself drains a person of energy even without overexerting themselves. Secondly, the pain and joint stiffness can hamper a person’s sleep and lead to sleep deprivation. Over time, this can become a vicious cycle of tiredness and insomnia. Chronic fatigue also affects a person’s immune system causing his or her energy levels to drop.
  5. Cognitive impairments: Fibromyalgia patients also complain of a compromised short term memory. They often face difficulties recalling names of people they have recently met or other newly acquired information. These people may also have trouble concentrating on tasks for extended periods of time and experience mental sluggishness also known as fibro-fog.
  6. Irritable bowel syndromeBowel disturbance is another common symptom of this disease. Passing stool may become difficult due to a combination of pain and muscle stiffness. With time, this problem can worsen unless addressed with laxatives. However, an over-dependence on laxatives can lead to further problems.
  7. Somatic Symptoms: Apart from pain, patient experiences unrefreshing sleep and fatigue throughout the day. Other associated features can be depression, abdominal cramps, chest pain, tingling.
  8. Lab Tests: Fibromyalgia is a clinical diagnosis. There are no definite laboratory tests. In fact, most conducted tests will turn out to be normal. 
  9. Treatment: Foremost important is an education of patient and caregivers, regarding nature of the disease. The patient needs to indulge in recreational activities and undergo supervised physiotherapy. There are potent medicines to correct the chemical imbalance in the body thereby increasing the pain threshold and leading to better quality of life.

Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis - Know More About It!

Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis - Know More About It!

Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis also known as juvenile idiopathic arthritis is a commonly occurring arthritis in children under the age of 15. Some common problems that are faced by patients with this disease include stiffness, joint pain, and swelling. While the symptoms might persist for a few months for some patients, for others it might continue for the rest of their lives. Patients might face serious complications such as inflammation of the eye, problems related to growth etc. The treatment of this condition focuses on preventing the bones from getting damaged, pain control and improving the function of the body.

What are some of the common symptoms of juvenile arthritis?

  1. Pain: A child suffering from juvenile rheumatoid arthritis might face extreme pain in the joints. They might limp after a nap or night sleep due to pain or stiff joints.

  2. Swelling: Larger joints such as the knee might swell frequently. The swelling might occur in smaller joints too.

  3. Stiffness: In addition to limping the child might appear rough and clumsy after waking from night sleep or a nap.

Other conditions could include rashes, swollen lymph nodes, frequent fever, headache, etc.

What are the causes of Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis?

Juvenile Rheumatoid Arthritis occurs when the immune system of the body attacks its own tissues and cells. It is still unclear as to why it happens, although, researchers believe that the environment and heredity have a role to play. Certain genetic mutations might make a child more vulnerable and susceptible to microbes that can trigger this condition.

What are the complications involved?

There could be several complications that might arise due to this condition. It is, therefore, wise to keep a close watch on the child. Seeking immediate medical attention can go a long way in mitigating the risk of these complications.

  • Problems related to the eye: Juvenile Rheumatoid arthritis can damage the eye by causing an inflammation known as uveitis. If this condition is not treated, it might result in other conditions such as glaucoma, cataracts, blindness etc.

  • Growth problems: Juvenile rheumatoid arthritis could result in growth problems. To treat this, a child would require a dose of corticosteroid.

How to diagnose juvenile arthritis?

It is not very easy to diagnose juvenile arthritis. Doctors often prescribe blood tests to get an idea of erythrocyte sedimentation rate, rheumatoid factor, C-reactive protein, anti-nuclear antibody, cyclic citrullinated peptide etc. A doctor might also prescribe imaging tests such as X-rays, MRI etc to detect congenital defects, fractures, tumors etc.

What are the treatment options available?

The overall treatment goal is to control symptoms, prevent joint damage, and maintain function. Oral steroids such as prednisone, deflazocort may be used in certain situations, but only for as short a time and at the lowest dose possible. Some of the medications that are prescribed for this condition include NSAID such as ibuprofen and naproxen, DMARD such as methotrexate and leflunomide, TNF blockers such as adalimumab and etanercept, immune suppressants such as rituximab. In addition to this, doctors would also prescribe exercises and therapies.

Hello. Rheumatoid arthritis is a debilitating disease which needs life-long therapy and exercises. There are comparatively cheap medications available for RA like - Methotrexate, Sulfasalazine or Hcqs. Please contact your local rheumatologist, who will assess your condition, do few necessary investigations and prescribe the medicines which you need in adequate doses. Hope this helps.

Hello. The 2018 chemistry nobel was given for use injection Adalimumab for autoimmune disorders like rheumatoid arthritis. Adalimumab is used by a lot of rheumatologists in our country, as a first line biologic therapy for RA. It needs to be taken 40unit Subcutaneous injection every 2 weeks. Before initiating Adalimumab therapy you need to be tested for latent TB, HIV and hepatitis. I think you must understand you initiating this treatment, that it control and treat your joint inflammation and existing disease, but it is no certain cure to the disease. Also existing deformities can not be corrected with this treatment. But regular treatment can prevent future deformities.

Hello. Methotrexate is the first line drug for treatment for management of Rheumatoid arthritis. If it is not working, it's dose can be slowly increased upto 25 mg per week. Alternatively other medicines like Lefnulomide, Hcqs or Sulfasalazine can be added. Few basic labs like ESTLR, CRP are also needed to assess her present disease status. Contact a Rheumatologist as early as possible, as RA can be a potentially debilitating disease.

Hi, I want to know that is any connection between Rheumatoid Arthritis and gastro Problem (Leaky Gut).
If you have rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and experience digestive issues on top of it, you are not alone. Studies have found that people with RA have more gastrointestinal (GI) problems than people who do not have RA. Higher levels of inflammation and impaired immunity due to the disease likely play a significant role. Additionally, medications used to treat rheumatoid arthritis – including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs), corticosteroids and most disease-modifying antirheumatic drugs (DMARDs) – can all cause GI problems as a common side effect. To minimize the risk of serious GI complications, you should speak with your doctor right away if you develop any signs or symptoms of a GI problem. And if you haven’t done so yet, stop smoking and start eating right. Upper-GI problems in RA patients have been partly attributed to the use of NSAIDs. An increased awareness of the side effects of NSAIDs, their wiser use and the addition of proton pump inhibitors to control upper-GI symptoms have helped to reduce the incidence of upper-GI problems associated with RA. Timely treatment of upper-GI disease, minimizing exposure to corticosteroids, avoiding smoking, and screening for lower-GI disease, all of which may help reduce the incidence or seriousness of lower-GI issues.

My husband 55 years old is taking intacept injection for last 2 years monthly once for psoriatic arthritis he has liver cirrhosis too will it cause any major side effects.

Rheumatologist, Kolkata
Hello. Intacept (Eranercept) is a biological DMARD. Its side effects include immunosuppression, which means your body has any underlying infection, it may increase in severity. If your husband have any underlying viral hepatitis or tuberculosis, then intacept may be harmful for him. But if his liver cirrhosis is not due to any viral etiology, then there is not harm in giving inj intacept to him.
