Ankylosing spondylitis Ankylosing spondylitis is a cause of back pain in adolescents and young adults. Ankylosing spondylitis is a form of chronic inflammation of the spine and the sacroiliac joints Chronic inflammation in these areas causes pain and stiffness in and around the spine, including the neck, middle back, lower back, and buttocks. Over time, chronic inflammation of the spine (spondylitis) can lead to a complete cementing together (fusion) of the vertebrae, a process referred to as ankylosis. Ankylosis causes loss of mobility of the spine. Pt treatment deep breathing for lung expansion and stretching exercises to improve spine and joint mobility. Are also advised to sleep on a firm mattress and avoid the use of a pillow in order to prevent spine curvature. Aerobic exercise is generally encouraged as it promotes full expansion of the breathing muscles and opens the airways of the lungs.

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.

In allopathy there is no permanent treatment of this as your age is 22 yr, and recently onset of disease can be cured by ayurveda otherwise it will be difficult to treat ,so first I will tell you this disease is mainly aggrevated by aam formation if you stomach is not clear or motion it occurs again and again so try to take healthy diet, avoid ,chilli, spice,junk food etc, if your digestion is not proper then correct it causes of swelling is many so identify the season or duration, morning or evening stiffness etc, these will correct with yoga asan likeVirasana Malasana Makarasana Utthita Parsvakonasana Parsvottanasana Trikonasana Garudasana etc it helps to reduce swelling and stiffness, use sand fomentation on painful and sweeling joint gives felief from both, or hot fomentation with eranda patra decoction all these remedies gives relef but you have to take panchkarm treatment for permanent solution.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. As you must be knowing by now, rheumatoid arthritis is a chronic inflammatory joint disease which has a genetic predisposition. Since this is a genetically linked disease hence as of now there is no permanent cure for it, but there are new injectable medications like etanercept etc which are available which help in disease control. You need a very active lifestyle with intensive regular physical therapy, take adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation you also need to be in touch of a rheumatologist as it needs a long term supervised care. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Psoriasis is an inflammatory skin disease characterised by well defined erythematous scaly plaques with silvery white or candle wax type of scaling. Chronic plaque psoriasis is the most common type. It can affect sites like scalp, arms, and legs, (specifically elbows and knees), palms and soles etc. Other types of psoriasis are: Erythrodermic psoriasis, Pustular psoriasis (generalised and localised), Nail psoriasis and Scalp psoriasis. There are various precipitating factors for psoriasis: Infections (sore throat, dental infections etc), drugs (b-blockers used for hypertension), pregnancy, winters (psoriasis becomes worse in winters), stress, alcohol intake and cigarette smoking, topical irritants like coal tar, salicylic acid and withdrawal of oral/ topical steroids etc. The disease has a chronic course and there topical creams/ointments/gels/lotions etc as well as oral and injectable medicines which can treat psoriasis but there is no permanent cure for psoriasis. For limited disease involving < 20% of BSA, Topical treatment alone suffices: -Moisturisers specially those which contain hygroscopic (attract water from the atmosphere and lock it into the skin) and keratoloytic agents like Ammonium lactate (Amylac cream), Urea, Lactic acid etc are especially useful in dry scaly conditions like psoriasis. -For the patches you could use a steroid+salicylic acid ointment, twice daily (clobetasol+3% OR 6% salicylic acid in an ointment base e.g propysalic NF Ointment) over and above the moisturiser for 4 weeks. -Other treatment modalities which can be used for localized plaque psoriasis are: Vitamin D analogues like calcipotriol, calcipotriene alone or in combination with steroid. For extensive psoriasis (involving more than 20% of BSA) oral as well as topical treatment is combined together: -Once weekly oral methotrexate is another option in case of plaque psoriasis but it should always be taken under the supervision of a dermatologist since it can rarely cause serious side effects like bone marrow suppression. -Oral cyclosporine is given for extensive psoriasis involving more than 20% of the body surface area. It is rapidly effective but it requires monitoring of kidney functions and BP. Other commonly used oral treatment modalities are: -Oral Psoralens e.g 8-methoxypsoralen and UV A phototherapy (PUVA) -Narrow-Band phototharapy (NB-UVB) -Biologics response modifiers (Etanercept, Infliximab, Adalimumab etc) To summarize, in limited psoriasis only topical agents are used, whereas if the disease involves >20% body surface area, it is better to combine both topical and oral therapies. I would suggest that you see a dermatologist and have a fair discussion regarding the most appropriate treatment modalities for you.
