This query is with regard to my wife Age 54 years. She is a patient of hypo-thyroid since her childhood for which she currently consumes 1 Tablet of Eltroxin 100 mg/day. She has issues with her bowel movements which are irregular, despite taking care to include fiber based diet, off and on. She is also allergic to nights and can only be prescribed other pain-killers like Paracetamol. She is a post-menopausal housewife and we do not have any children.
For the last few days she has been complaining of severe pain in the forward part of her left heel which is sometimes felt upwards to her knee. This is impeding/obstructing her movements while walking and performing daily morning exercises. She also periodically complains of hot flushes in both her feet below her knees. She takes a Paracetamol tablet whenever the pain in her left-knee (which is an old health issue since 2013) is unbearable, may be 3-4 times a year. She regularly consumes Shelcal 500 mg or Supradyn tablet with breaks of about a month, which gave her relief from her left-knee pain.
Kindly advice what could be the cause and remedy for these issues of my wife.
Thanks and best regards.
