Regards Lybrate user. Pain in knee sometimes may not have to be from the knee as such. There are structures in hip or low back that may cause one to feel pain in the knee (without actually having pain in the knee). This may be ascertained by a thorough examination and evaluation. With the information provided, pain not occurring during walking, but sitting on floor or at night worsens it, the condition may be radiating from low back. You may consult an orthopaedician / orthopaedic physiotherapist for a detailed examination or you may reach out as well for virtual consult.

Hi, Lybrate user, laryngopharangeal reflux results owing to irregular life style producing hyper acidity in stomach. Tk, plenty of water to hydrate your body inorder to regulate metabolism preventing constipation. Your diet be easily digestible on time to check gastric disorder to minimise acidity. Go for a walk in the morning to regulate blood circulation to your digestive system. Go for meditation to reduce your stress to calm your nerves to check gastric disorder.

I have been diagnosed with aosd (adults onset stills disease) last year September. It is rare type of rheumatic arthritis. Presently, I am on defcort 6 mg and methotrexate 20 mg. My recent blood report shows esr - 45, crp - 24 and ggtp - 84. I am also not having periods since december 2020 due to steroids intake. I am also a patient of depression since 2015 and take nexito of the when things go out of control. Will ayurveda cure me completely?

Like all autoimmune diseases, aosd has no permanent cure. However, with proper treatment it can definitely be managed such that you can lead a normal life. If left untreated, it can lead to permanent joint damage, and sometimes life threatening complications like mas or myocarditis. I strongly suggest that you consult with a rheumatologist for further management. Stopping steroids suddenly may be dangerous.

Wait for couple of days. Then if do not get period and if sexually active do the urine pregnancy test, if not active or pregnancy ruled out then meet gynecologist.

I have a 3.5 mm right side mid calyx kidney stone and I am suffering from right side pain. The urologist yesterday prescribed me stone 1b6 syrup, nafodil 50 tablet (naftopidil 50) and deflazacort 6 mg tablet. I just found out that deflazacort 6 mg is a steroid and it affects the immunity. I am worried my immunity might get decreased and I have not taken covid vaccine till now. Also I read steroids should not be taken by a person who is planning to take a vaccine. So kindly please advise what to do? Shall I take deflazacort 6 mg or not?

I will personally suggest not to take deflazacort beacuse you seem to much worried about low dose weak steroid but for that I need to see your detail sonography report why you are prescribed steroid at all please contact for further query.

My mother, 72, had stopped taking defcort 6 mg (taking on alternate days for 2 years due to ild) as she was not having solid food due to vomiting and loose motions 15 days ago. Should defcort 6 mg medicine be started again now?

It's in your best interest if you consult a pulmonologist (dm pulmonary medicine or md chest and tb) who will assess her again and ascertain the need to restart deflazacort. Although you should not discontinue this medicine abuptly but now when you have already done you should not restart it by yourself. I wish her good health!
