MY WIFE IS SUFFERRING WITH RUMATAIDE ARTHRETIS SHE ALSO UNDERGONE TKR FOR BOTH KNEES 2 YEARS BACK AND RECENTLY IN MAY 2015, STENT HAS BEEN INSERTED AS THERE WAS A BLOCKADE IN SECONDARY SEGMENT OF ARTERY. SHE IS TAKING MEDCINE I.E. ASPRIN, CLOPIDROGREL, THYRONORM. NOW SHE IS GETTING PAIN IN SHOULDERS, WRIST AND FINGER JOINTS. WHEN WE CONSULTED A DOCTOR, THEY ARE ADVISING TO TAKE METHOTREXATE AND HCQS. WE UNDERSTAND THAT IF METHOTREXATE IS TAKEN ALONG WITH ASPRIN, IT WILL HAVE SEVERE SIDE EFFECTS. HENCE WE EARNESTLY SEEK ADVISE FOR SAFE MEDICATION TO HER.

Low dose methotrexate is what is used in rheumatoid arthritis. Just like low dose asprin is used in patients with stent. BOth are safe when used together. High dose methotrexate i.e. more than 45 mg per week or high dose aspirin i.e. more than 325mg per day can cuase problems when taken together.

Hi. It may be due to Overweight and degenerative changes. Get x-ray done If stiffness is present. Do Hot Fomentation knee exercises- put a towel roll under knee, press and hold for 10secs then release. Repeat it for 10 times twice daily. Avoid squatting Avoid stair climbing Can visit near by physiotherapy clinic.

Dear lybrate-user. The crackling of sound may be of various reasons. Some of the reasons may be related with biomechanical issues or with dereased synovial space. If the crackling sound does not cause any pain or discomfort, then you should not be worried. Its natural and absolutely normal.

Hi whats the best medicine for knee pain i was told that the ligaments have been torn.
Hi if your ligament is torn then you will need to get it repaired if it is very severe otherwise strengthening your knee muscle will help and application of ice three times a day will increase the healing of your knee ligaments.

Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. In case it continues consult a Acupuncture/Acupressure Dr. In your place. Also take calcium tablets for a limited period 2 months

Kindly show me a photograph of the affected part--knee rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do knee & general exercises. Cycling will be a good exercise for you. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.
