Can I use himalayan shallaki to cure bone erosion and rheumatoid arthritis or it is just a pain killer.
When you go with the evidence based medicine. There is no concrete evidence that it may have such properties. But some ppl find it useful. It's based on personal choice where to give a chance or to avoid. It may not be a pain killer but a pain reliever in that sense.

I am a 22 year old female and I am not able to cum even during sex. Do I need some treatment for this?

Hello- several factors may contribute to female orgasm difficulty. In addition to psychological problems, physical causes include arthritis, urinary or bowel difficulties, pelvic surgery, fatigue, headaches, and neurological disorders such as multiple sclerosis. Certain medications, including some antidepressants, blood pressure medications, antihistamines and chemotherapy drugs, can decrease sex drive and inhibit the ability to achieve orgasm. Menopause causes lower estrogen levels that may lead to changes in your genital tissues and your sexual responsiveness. Menopause also slows the natural swelling and lubrication of the vagina, leading to uncomfortable or painful intercourse (dyspareunia). Although sexual problems associated with female orgasm difficulty are multifaceted, they're also treatable. Treatment involves addressing the underlying medical or hormonal condition contributing to the orgasm difficulty. Many natural herbal formula have known to increase prostaglandins production, relaxing vaginal and uterine muscles and cervical and clitoral tissues through the balance hormones and rejuvenation.

Interstitial Lung Disease - Know More!

Interstitial lung disease is an umbrella term that includes a number of conditions that causes scarring of the tissues of the lungs. This scarring can hamper your breathing and therefore cause less oxygen to be present in your blood.

When you are exposed to hazardous materials like asbestos for long periods, you can get interstitial lung disease. Even autoimmune conditions like rheumatoid arthritis can result in this condition. 

Once the tissues of your lungs are scarred, chances are that it can’t be reversed. While medications can slow the progress of the but you won’t be able to regain the full functionality of your lungs. In such cases, you can consider a lung transplant.

What are the signs?

You will difficulty in breathing – it may be aggravated when you exert yourself or you may experience shortness of breath during rest periods. A dry cough is another sign of this condition.

What causes it?

Interstitial lung disorders occur when you’ve had an injury in your lungs that set off an abnormal healing process. With the healing not happening in a normal way, the tissues around your air sacs tend to thicken and get scarred. The does not allow oxygen to get into your blood.

There are certain triggers for this condition – 

  1. If you are exposed to certain pollutants or toxins like silica dust, bird dropping and grain dust for long periods.

  2. Medications like chemotherapy drugs, anti-inflammatory drugs and heart medications.

  3. If you have the following medical disorders – scleroderma, rheumatoid arthritis, mixed connective tissue disease, dermatomyositis, Sjogren's syndrome and sarcoidosis.

What is the treatment? 

First, a doctor will carry out diagnostic tests to identify the cause of the problem. The following tests are usually performed –

  • Blood tests to detect autoimmune responses to pollutants

  • Imaging tests like CT scan and echocardiogram

  • Tests like oximetry and spirometry to determine your lung’s capacity

  • Surgical biopsy and bronchoscopy to analyse your lung tissue

Once the diagnosis is done, the doctor can suggest any one of them or a combination of the following methods –

1. Medications 

Corticosteroids are used to suppress the immune system. GERD can also damage your lungs, so you may be given medicines to reduce stomach acid if you have an excess of it.

2. Oxygen therapy

Oxygen therapy can help you with breathing and help you sleep better. But it won't stop damage to the lung tissues.

3. Pulmonary rehabilitation

Pulmonary rehabilitation can help you perform your daily tasks without any hitch. It includes exercise, breathing techniques, eating healthy and emotional support.

Surgery

If nothing else works, then the doctor may recommend a lung transplant. 

Moreover, there are certain lifestyle remedies that you can adopt –

  • Avoid smoking as it can aggravate your condition.

  • Eat a healthy and nutritious diet.

  • Take vaccines for respiratory infections like the flu and pneumonia.

The best way to deal with this disorder is to not have it at all. But with proper treatment, your symptoms can be reduced.

You can do the following exercises for knee pain. follow these dos and don’ts to help your knees feel their best. 1. Don’t rest too much. Too much rest can weaken your muscles, which can worsen joint pain. Find an exercise program that is safe for your knees and stick with it. If you're not sure which motions are safe or how much you can do, talk with your doctor or a physical therapist. 2. Do exercise. Cardio exercises strengthen the muscles that support your knee and increase flexibility. Weight training and stretching do, too. For cardio, some good choices include walking, swimming, water aerobics, stationary cycling, and elliptical machines. 3. Don’t risk a fall. A painful or unstable knee can make a fall more likely, which can cause more knee damage. 4. Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (rice) is good for knee pain caused by a minor injury or an arthritis flare. Give your knee some rest, apply ice to reduce swelling, wear a compressive bandage, and keep your knee elevated. 5. Don't overlook your weight. If you're overweight, losing weight reduces the stress on your knee. You don’t even need to get to your "ideal" weight. Smaller changes still make a difference. 6. Don't be shy about using a walking aid. A crutch or cane can take the stress off of your knee. Knee splints and braces can also help you stay stable. 7. Don't let your shoes make matters worse. Cushioned insoles can reduce stress on your knees. 8. Do play with temperature. For the first 48 to 72 hours after a knee injury, use a cold pack to ease swelling and numb the pain. A plastic bag of ice or frozen peas works well. Use it for 15 to 20 minutes three or four times a day. Wrap your ice pack in a towel to be kind to your skin. After that, you can heat things up with a warm bath, heating pad, or warm towel for 15 to 20 minutes, three or four times a day. 9. Don’t jar your joint (s). High-impact exercises can further injure painful knees. Avoid jarring exercises such as running, jumping, and kickboxing. Also avoid doing exercises such as lunges and deep squats that put a lot of stress on your knees. These can worsen pain and, if not done correctly, cause injury. You can contact me for a detailed consultation.

I am psoriatic arthritis patient with back pain and si joint pains in addition to other joint pains. I use hcqs 200 mg for psa. Spine surgeon prescribed duloxetine 20 mg one in morning & one in the evening for my back pain. These tablets also reduce other joint pains and also helps in controlling my inflammation. But my problem is because of this duloxetine capsules my sleep has become very much disturbed and I am unable to fall asleep when I wake up in the night. I feel active all the time and suffering with racing thoughts/brain fogg. I am not able to calm my mind by all means. To counter this I added mythy cobalamin 750 mcg and 1/2 of clonotril - .25 mg. But still then I get up between 3 to 4 am and unable to fall asleep. Totally I am getting a sleep of about 4.5 hours to 5 hours a day. Increasing clonotril dose causing me irritation in the stiff muscles surrounding the joints. I tried magnesium supplement which worked nicely but it increased my scalp psoriasis rapidly. I tried all forms of magnesium but same results. Melatonin helped a bit but it causing tiredness during entire day. Could you please suggest any medicine to calm down my thoughts and to get a restful sleep? Thank you.

Better to wait as dmards takes upto 3 months to reach its peak effect. Folitrax can be increased to 25 mg and lefra to 20 mg if she can tolerate. Biologicals can be discussed later. Your rheumatologist will be able to advise better.

The medicines mentioned are immunosuppressants and it is right that they will weaken the immune system but if you will refuce them then it might increase the problems of arthritis. Pls send the latest detailed evaluation report of eye by an ophthalmologist so that I may prescribe an eyedrop for controlling uveitis component. Maintain proper precautions to avoid corona infection.
