Hullo Doc! My wife was recently diagnosed with Rheumatoid arthritis (ra factor less than 10.4,crp 24.5,hb 9.7,esr 40, anti ccp antibodies 61.70). The pain becomes acute after evening. I consulted 2 docs - an orthopaedic surgeon and a physician- both senior specialists. The former gave 1. hydroxychloroquine 400 mg od, 2. Celecoxib 200 mg bd. The latter gave 1.Methotrexate 5 mg/week, 2.Sulfasalazine 500 mg od. Both have prescribed Iron capsules. Am very worried and confused about which course is better to take. PLEASE GUIDE. Can I give her aceclofenac 100/200 mg at night and for how long, along with either course to relieve pain? THANKS SO MUCH.

Rheumatoid arthritis is an autoimmune disease where the body starts attacking it's own self mistaking it as harmful foreign body. Immune system gets weak here, so the formula to get help from this is to STRENGTHEN your immune system , never to suppress. The medications which Doctors Bhavesh prescribed are to be taken religiously , they are immunomodulators , they will help your wife. along with medications, life style modifications and diet modification is equally important and vital in reversing your Arthritis. Adopt Plant based diet to heal your gut and IMMUNITY. Take Vitamin C on daily divided doses of around 2g . ( consult with your doctor before taking this ) Evening Primrose oil/capsules around 500mg twice daily ( Gamma Linolenic acid ) helps immensely. For diets and Nutraceuticals, consult with me in person for detailed information. Remember, Hippocrates had said, " Let Food be thy Medicine and Medicine be thy food " he also said , whenever one is afflicted with disease, first heal the "GUT" Hope it helps. Thanks. Thanks.

Other potential strategies that currently lack long-term investigations for the prevention of PPP, PTP and PHN include the use of acetaminophen, NSAIDs (e.g. ketorolac, celecoxib, ibuprofen), TCA, SNRI, opioids (oral, intravenous and transdermal), alpha-2 agonists(e.g. clonidine, dexmedetomidine), NMDA antagonists

Please think before you go for alternative medicine as there are proven treatments for cancer which can cure it. There are many alternative treatments like Ayurvedic, homeopathic or Tibetan medicine claiming to cure cancer. However many of them contain steroids or hormones which temporarily suppress the cancer, people think they are cured and than the cancer comes back with a vengeance, when people come to us, but we are helpless at that point. There are many cancers that are known to even regress spontaneously like kidney cancer or breast cancers which may never progress or respond to hormonal or head and neck cancers which responds to painkillers like celecoxib or steroids and the credit goes to alternative medicine. I agree that allopathy and science has not progressed to a stage where we can cure all cancers. But atleast we know what we are doing and the side effect and effects of the treatment are known. I hope I was able to help you decide for the line of treatment. If you want to share the details / reports of your cancer, feel free to contact me.

Lower Back Pain - Know the Causes and Treatments Of It!

Lower Back Pain - Know the Causes and Treatments Of It!

Lumbago or Lower back pain is a condition that is characterized by mild to serious pain or uneasiness in the lower back region. Lower back pain is more prevalent among the youth whose work includes physical exertion or sitting for long hours and is also common in individuals belonging to the 'retirement age' because of their sedentary lifestyles. The pain might be acute (sudden and extreme) or chronic if it has been endured over a span of three months. 

The most common causes of lower back pain are: 

  1. Overuse of the muscles and includes strains or sprains of soft tissues such as muscles, ligaments and vertebral compression fractures. 
  2. Pressure on the roots of nerves due to conditions such as spinal canal stenosis (narrowing down of the spaces within the spine) or herniated disc (a condition of the rubbery disc present between the spine bones (vertebrae)). 
  3. Osteoarthritis is a condition wherein the shock absorbers, found in the joints, progressively break down. 

When it affects the spine, the condition causes back pain by stiffening the spinal joints. Symptoms of Lumbago (Low back pain) include: 

  1. Stiff back 
  2. Numbness in the legs 
  3. Loss of weight 
  4. Difficulty in urinating 
  5. Sciatica, which is the pain running down the lower back to hips, legs and thighs. This occurs due to a compression by an intervertebral disc in the back, which leads to a pinched nerve. 

How to diagnose lower back pain or a slip disc?

Some methods that can be utilized for diagnosing back include Xray, CT Scans, Myelogram and MRI scans. 

Treatment options available -
Exercises along with correction of bad posture for relieving back pain are a common component of any treatment plan. Factors such as type and severity of the pain as well as the patient?s history can help in determining the type of treatment that can be administered. In most cases, the recovery time is usually six weeks without surgery. Typical treatment of back pain includes use of muscle relaxants, painkillers and physiotherapy. Surgery is suggested in severe cases. Some other treatments are discussed below: 

  1. Rest: A period of rest and inactivity would help the injured tissues to recuperate and relieve back pain. However, extended periods of rest lead to weakening of muscles and hence might prolong the existing back pain. 
  2. Heat and ice packs: Both heat and ice therapies are used according to the patient's preference to reduce inflammation. 
  3. Medications: A large variety of prescription and over-the-counter medicines are available. Some reduce back pain caused by inflammation and others prevent the pain signals from travelling to the brain. Examples would include acetaminophen, celecoxib and diclofenac.

In case you have a concern or query you can always consult an expert & get answers to your questions!
