Continue taking medicines which are protective to the heart also. Reduce salt intake to bare minimum, joint pain can be due to retention of water or lack of proper exercises, putting entire load of body on knees. Get investigated by showing to your doctor. Get an x ray of joint done. Get back here with report and do consult a good physiotherapist for proper exercises which do not strain the knee joints.

Hello madam, triple arthrodesis surgery is done for specific conditions of the foot, since no detail is available regarding the indications for your surgery it would be inappropriate for any doctors on this portal to advise on this aspect. It would be better to meet your surgeon and get your doubts cleared. However till such time if pain is your major problem, you can use ultracet which you have been using. Other measures like ice packs, hot fomentation and compression bandage along with local application of analgesic gel can be used to relieve your pain.

Hallo Sir, Namaste, I interested in the treatment of Myotonia congenital ie. Muscles Initial Movement from Contracting To Relaxing (during any movement of body from Rest to Action) My age is 24 years and rest everything is fit.

Myotonia congenita (Thomsen disease and Becker type) What is myotonia congenita? Myotonia congenita is an inherited myopathy, a disease that causes problems with the tone and contraction of skeletal muscles. It doesn’t cause muscle atrophy (shrinkage); instead, it sometimes can cause muscle enlargement and increased muscle strength. There are two types of myotonia congenita: Becker-type myotonia is the most common form, while Thomsen disease is a very rare, relatively mild form. What are the symptoms of myotonia congenita? The main problems faced by people with this disease are delayed muscle relaxation and muscle stiffness, typically provoked by sudden movements after rest. What causes myotonia congenita? This disease is caused by mutations in the gene for a chloride channel that’s necessary for shutting off the electrical excitation that causes muscle contraction. The Becker type is inherited in an autosomal recessive pattern, meaning it is produced by defective genes contributed by both parents. The Thomsen type is autosomal dominant, meaning it is produced by a defective gene contributed by one parent. What is the progression of myotonia congenita? Myotonia congenita has its onset in early to late childhood and does not progress. Someone who has myotonia congenita can lead a long, productive life, and can even excel at sports where strength is more important than agility. Homoepathy is excelling in treating these types of congenital diseases. You need a detailed case history taking to select an individulaised genetic constitutional remedy.

I am 36 years old male suffering with hypermobility of joints. It was diagnosed 2 years ago with stiffness and pain in lower back and sacroiliac joints. My joints are very weak and get hurt easily since my childhood. Its been more than a month that I took stairs to office for a week instead of lift. I used to climb 15 floors without lift. My knees started paining and then I stopped doing it. Now my knees are swollen and they are not getting better even after icing or using hot water bottle. All the tests in the past were negative. The tests done were RA Factor, HLAB27, BL17, CRP, cbc, MRI and complete spine screening and Bone scan of lower back. My lower back is fine now but I have swelling in my knees and pain in left shoulder and left wrist.

I am 26 years old female I have back ache for the last 3 months I have used many medicines and creams but have nt any use what to do.

Homeopath, Faridabad
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). (Excessive sitting or standing is to be avoided as well don’t carry much weight on shoulders). 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. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. Management: -Stretching or activities that place additional strain on the back are discouraged. -Sleeping with a pillow between the knees while lying on one side may increase comfort. -Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees would also relieves pain and no pillow under your head. -Some people seem to benefit from the use of ice or heat. Take care, do not use a heating pad on ‘high’ or place ice directly on the skin. 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.

Arthritis Pain - These Lifestyle Changes will help you Manage it

Pain Management Specialist, Vadodara
Arthritis Pain - These Lifestyle Changes will help you Manage it

Arthritis is a musculoskeletal disease defined by chronic inflammations in the joint and cartilage degradation. It is a fairly common disease, and the pain caused by arthritis can be extremely disabling. If you leave arthritis untreated, it can lead to:

  1. Chronic pain
  2. Stiffness
  3. Swelling
  4. Limb deformities
  5. Disabled scope of motion

These symptoms can hinder your daily life, thus learning how to live with, and managing arthritis becomes important. Here are some lifestyle changes you can adopt to manage pain better:

Everyday routine

Small things you can do every day, while you are sitting or working, such as:

  • Frequently adjust your position
  • Stretch and bend your legs, change your hand’s position and tilt your neck periodically from one side to another
  • Don’t overuse a lone joint because that can cause more pain—so pace yourself and take adequate breaks
  • Walk around and stand every hour or a half.

In addition to these, you must:

  • Manage your weight: Obesity has been linked to arthritis; the more weight you put on, the more your pain will increase.
  • Quit smoking: Connective tissues are stressed when you smoke, and this triggers more pain


There are a number of medications available in the market today to ease arthritis pain. Over-the-counter (OTC) ibuprofen or acetaminophen are great for pain relief. Also, topical creams that contain analgesics can be gently massaged over inflamed joints to ease the pain.
However, you should avoid the following:

  • Over treatment: If you find yourself depending too heavily on OTC, consult your doctor.
  • Under-treatment: Never ignore or undermine your pain. Leaving arthritis untreated is potentially dangerous, and you may require immediate medication.


If you have arthritis, exercise can boost your endurance, enhance your muscles and better your motion range. For best results, focus on gradual strength training, range-of-motion exercises and stretching. You can also include low-stress aerobics, water exercises, cycling or walking.
However, avoid repetitive and high impact exercises, such as:

  • Running
  • Jumping
  • Tennis
  • High-stress aerobics

Emotional and physical assimilation
The pain is not only physically exhausting; it can also strain you mentally. Choose relaxation or cognitive behaviour therapy (an integration of behaviour modification and talk therapy) to keep negative thoughts at bay. Besides these, you can also use acupuncture, heat and cold therapy and massages to ease the pain.
