My wife is of 25 years old, we had a child of 5 years old. From the last two years my wife is suffering from rheumatoid arthritis and hypothyroidism. We have been using prednisolone and sulphasalazine tablets from a reputed rheumatologist. We have been using from the last two years the same tablets and going to the doctor for every two months as prescribed. Necessary blood tests are also being conducted on almost every visit. Pains are coming back even if she forgets to take tablets for one day. We are also looking for a second pregnancy. Many people are saying that prednisolone should not be used for long time. Please help in troubleshooting the above problem.

Why do you want to go for knee replacement surgery? knee replacement surgery is the last resort if all necessary actions fail. First of all the diagnosis of knee pain has to be made. At the age of 52 years the most common cause of knee pain is osteoarthritis which can be diagnosed by an x ray. If it is osteoarthritis then along with medications few life style modifications are extremely important. You must avoid sitting on the floor, squatting, stair climbing, prolonged standing or prolonged walking, and you must do exercises for quadriceps strengthening. During walking you shoud use functional knee brace with hinge. If there is swelling rub ice for 15 mins 4 times a day. You can also modify your shoe to reduce pain in knee. Shoe modification is based on knee deformity. Most of the cases need shoe with lateral wedge insole for genu varus and calcaneovarus deformities. If all these measure fail to resolve your pain (provided the case is osteoarthritis) you can go for injections like steroid or high molecular weight hyaluronic acid before going for knee replacement surgery as mentioned earlier knee replacement surgery is the last resort. I answered for osteoarthritis knee, but first of all the diagnosis has to be confirmed. X ray knee joint, routin blood test and few special tests will help to get the doagnosis. Thank you.

Hi thanks for the query. From the details you had described it could be post traumatic deformity of the elbow joint. I would like to see clinical and x ray picture to comment on weather correction can be done or not. If the deformity out of the acceptable limits it could be corrected.

Dear lybrate user. Back pain can be due to multipe reasons, from simple muscular spasm to complicated disc herniation or spine joints arthritis. My advise would be to consult a specialist for proper examination & treatment further than indulging in pain medication for symtomatic relief. Idea is to treat the disease if any & not the symptom.

Don't worry. 1. Take rest for 2 days from training. Continue daily activities. 2. Take healthy nutritious diet with protein, calcium and vitamins. 3. Apply cold pack on area for 10 mins 4 times a day. Apply topical painkiller creams too. 4. Take anti inflammatory drugs like ibuprofen round the clock for 2 to 3 days. 5. Start your training again once pain is decreased and begin with stretches. Consult again if needed.

Hello. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). Lie down on bed on your back without pillow. Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Get back to me thereafter.
