Asked for female, 25 years old from Chennai
I am 25 years old and suffering from rheumatoid arthritis from past 3 years. I am felling pain and swelling in knee joints, elbow joints and others too. So is there ways to reverse joint damage causes by arthritis?
Rheumatoid arthritis is very much controllable disease. With the advancement of drugs for Rgeumatoid people live like other normal people with proper use of DMARDS (disease modifiying anti rheumatic drugs. Drugs will help you preventing further progression of disease and joint damage but once the joints get damaged totally drugs have little role in preventing further progression. So my advice will consult any Rheumatologist of your area who can guide you properly. Hope this will help you.

Hello Dr. my wife age 41 year was diagnosed with scleroderma on the firearms. Punch biopsy sample was sent to Dr. uday khopkar in sept 2015. What treatment should we take to avoid further complications. Presently she has some problem in her finger which get swollen and red when get in touch with moisture or cold water.
Dear Mr. lybrate-user Scleroderma is a systemic disease so do not be in a misconception of Scleroderma of forearm. According to your description it seems to be a limited scleroderma. Presence of Pulmonary hypertension and ILD (Interstitial Lung Disease) muat be evaluated. Discolouration and gangreen of digits are the most common cause for which pt initially seek attention but that is the tip of the iceberg only. Avoidence of cold is utmost important and some vasodilatory medication will require specially during winter. Please consult your local Rheumatologist for furtjer giudance.
Asked for male, 41 years old from Pune
My father was diagnosed with chikungunya last two month back but still there is pain in his joint and the hand gets ants means (mungi).
This condition is known as post viral reactive arthritis which is usually self limiting. In some cases the pain may persist and patient may behave clinically like Rheumatoid Arthritis and few of them also become postive for Rheumatoid Factor (RF) and Anti CCP bucause this kind of viral infection often causes immune dysregulation. If he is a smoker ask him to stop immediately as it is one of the strongest risk factor for developing Rheumatoid Arthritis. If symptoms persist we will have to plan to start disease modifiying anti rheumatic drugs (DMARDS). Power doppler usg of the joints can be a helpful guide. Consult your local Rheumatologist.
