Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Since you have mentioned that you have done regular physiotherapy, medicines etc and have still not gained any relief, my advise to you will be to get mri and dynamic x rays of your spine done so that we can see whats wrong. Also it will be useful if you can attach and send me the doctor's prescription papers so that I can see and advise you accordingly. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

My mother is aged 59 yrs. She seems to be suffering from arthritis. She complains of severe pain in joints of her fingers. She is not comfortable while sitting as her back does not allow to sit comfortably. No test done for arthritis. Kindly advise.

Hi Manoj, It is possible that your mother has rheumatoid arthritis. Rheumatoid arthritis is a serious disease which apart from causing pain in the joints (over the long term) can cause damage to the joints such that you are unable to use them even if there is no pain, damage to the lungs and heart ,etc. And hence needs to be treated proactively and completely not only ot avoid pain but also to prevent damage or complications to all these organs. This can be done best by a rheumatologist. If you let me know where you live I can give you a refernce of a nearby rheumatologist. You can contact me via my website www.Rheumatologybangalore.Com You can get more information regarding rheumatoid arthritis from the document below.
