Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Please tell me duration of pain and which joints are involved? what are aggravating factors? how much distance can you walk and what is the analgesic requirement to carry out activities of daily routine? what medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. I also need to see your latest knee x rays if they are involved so that I know what grade of arthritis are we dealing with on your case? also kindly tell me whether any recent blood tests like esr, crp, vitamin d levels have been done in your case or not? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
