I have arthritis blood reports. All reports negative. But I have arthritis symptoms.
Symptoms of osteoarthritis may include joint pain and progressive stiffness that develops gradually. Symptoms of may include painful swelling, inflammation, and stiffness in the fingers, arms, legs, and wrists occurring in the same joints on both sides of the body, especially upon awakening cold compresses can help reduce swelling in the area. Cooling also helps to numb sharp pain. Apply an ice pack for up to 20 minutes, up to five times a day. Use a frozen gel pack, ice cubes in a plastic bag, or a bag of frozen peas. Wrap the cold pack in a soft towel. Do not apply a cold pack directly to skin. Heat therapy heat helps to relax tense muscles and soothe a stiff area. It can help with muscle pain and bonny pain. Use a heated gel pack, heating pad or a hot water bottle.

Treatment goals •to protect the joint from further damages. •provide pin relief. •prevent deformity and disabilities. •increase functional capacity. •improve flexibility and strength. •encourage regular exercise. •improve general fitness. Physiotherapy modalities - hot/cold applications- electrical stimulation- hydrotherapy and spa therapy rehabilitation treatment technique - rest and splinting - compression gloves - assistive devices and adaptive equipment - massage therapy - therapeutic exercise - patient education assistive devices and adaptive equipment occupational therapy improves functional ability in patients with ra. Occupational therapy interventions such as assistive devices and adaptive equipments have beneficial effects on joint protection and energy conservation in arthritic patients.Assistive devices are used in order to reduce functional deficits, to diminish pain, and to keep patients' independence and self-efficiency. Loading over the hip joint may be reduced by 50% by holding a cane. In fact, most of these instruments are originally designed for patients with neurologic deficits; therefore, certain adaptations may be needed for them to be used in patients with arthritis. Elevated toilet seats, widened gripping handles, arrangements related with bathrooms, etc. Might all facilitate the daily life. The procedures needed to increase compliance of the patient with the environment and to increase functional independence are mainly determined by the occupational therapist. Massage therapy that improves flexibility, enhances a feeling of connection with other treatment modalities, improves general well being, and can help to diminish swelling of inflamed joints. Massage is found to be effective on depression, anxiety, mood, and pain. Therapeutic exercise every joint should be moved in the rom at least once per day in order to prevent contracture. In the case of acutely inflamed joints, isometric exercises provide adequate muscle tone without exacerbation of clinical disease activity. Moderate contractures should be held for 6 seconds and repeated 5–10 times each day. Dynamic exercise therapy in improving joint mobility, muscle strength, aerobic capacity and daily functioning in patients with rheumatoid arthritis (ra). Finally, in chronic stage with inactive arthritis, conditioning exercises such as swimming, walking, and cycling with adequate resting periods are recommended. They increase muscle endurance and aerobic capacity and improve functions of the patient in general, and they also make the patient feel better. Patient education in patients with ra, sociopsychological factors affecting the disease process such as poor social relations, disturbance of communication with the environment, and unhappiness and depression at work are commonly encountered. The treatment of rheumatic diseases should provide education and information to their patients about their condition and the various physical therapy and rehabilitative options that are available to improve their quality of life. Passive treatments for rheumatoid arthritis •cold therapy reduces circulation, which ultimately decreases swelling. For example, a cold compress may be placed on the painful area. •cold therapy in acute phase •dosage 10-20mints/1-2 times a day. •heat therapy eases muscle tension and gets blood to flow more quickly to the painful area. For example, a moist, warm cloth may be used to promote circulation. •heat therapy in chronic phase •dosage 20-30mints/1-2 times a day. •hydrotherapy involves reducing your ra-related pain and other symptoms with water. With hydrotherapy, you will be submerged in warm water to relieve your symptoms. •massage can help reduce muscle tension and promote good circulation. It's also a fantastic way to help you manage stress (especially important for people with rheumatoid arthritis). •transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation (tens) works by blocking pain signals from getting to your spinal cord. It also helps decrease muscle spasms. •tens short term pain relief (6 to 18 hrs) •ultrasound creates warmth using sound waves, whichenchanes circulation and decreases joint pain, inflammation, and stiffness. Exercise for acute phase: •preformed exercise at least once a day. •general assisted movement through normal range (joint mobilisation). •isometric-“static movements” helps to maintain muscle tone without increasing inflammation. Exercise for the chronic phase: •can progress the above exercise to include use of light resistance. •postural/core stability exercises. •swimming/walking/cycling to maintain cardiovascular fitness. •gentle stretch for areas that become tight, such as knees &calves. Regular exercises: •maintaing muscle strength is important for joint stability & preventing injury. •muscles can become weak following reduced activity. •pain signals from yours nerves and swelling can both inhibits muscles. •muscle length can be affected by prolonged positions immobilization and tightness can limit daily activities. Alternative therapies: •thi chi. •musical therapy. •yoga therapy. •relaxation techniques. •pilates. Active treatments for rheumatoid arthritis •flexibility and strengthening exercises improve your range of motion and help you build muscle strength. Yoga and pilates are flexibility and strengthening exercises. •low-impact aerobic exercise is gentle but effective at helping you manage rheumatoid arthritis symptoms. Light walking is an example of this type of exercise. Your physical therapist will let you know how often to do these exercises. For example, you may need to do a few specific exercises 3 times a day, or your physical therapist may recommend a routine that incorporates 30 minutes of low-impact aerobic exercise a day and 30 minutes of strengthening exercises every other day. If your pain is more in the proximal joints, ie. In the upper limbs if the pain is present in the fingers/wrist and in the lower limbs it the pain is present in the toes/ ankle, then we shall definitely say it is rheumatic arthritis. Wear elbow brace and wrist brace which will make her to feel warm and that will make the joints become firm. Hot water fermentation will helpknee cap will also help to prevent the damaged cartilagesif your pain is more in the distal joints, ie. In the upper limbs if the pain is present in the fingers/wrist and in the lower limbs it the pain is present in the toes/ ankle, then we shall definitely say it is rheumatic arthritis. If your proximal joints (ie. Shoulder, hip & knee has pain) then you can pour hot (warm) water in that area to reduce the inflammation. If you have pain in the distal joints ie. Wrist, fingers, ankle, toes then you can wear either elbow brace or wrist brace which will help you to feel warm and very protective. And also immerse the distal joints in the hot water tub which will help you to reduce the pain.

My pain started from 2 fingers of right hand around 1.5 years ago and has reached to both my arms and upper back. Docs treated all abnormalities found in blood tests, arthritis problem ruled out bt mri of spine showed :partial disc desiccation at multiple levels. Diffuse disc bulge is seen at c5-6 level, indenting anterior thecal sac, ap canal diameter is 10 mm. Posterior disc bulge at l4/l5 with annular tear causing thecal sac indentation. Ligamentum flavum hypertrophy is seen at mid dorsal levels. Ketoflam along with gabapin nt for 3 weeks reduced some pain but alone gabapin nt is not helping at all. The pain is so severe that I find simple tasks (such as brushing teeth / holding mug or phone etc.) so difficult. Following exercises n using warm gel pad too. Initially had tried homeopathy n ayurveda too wid no benefit. Will problem with my spine ever reverse?

Hi spine problems are sometimes frustrating. They don’t get better soon, as never doesn’t listen to you. They need time and patience. Sometimes it never get better. You need to keep your options open. Regarding your scan, you do have problem, doesn’t sound severe compression. Other compression of nerves will happen as coincidence. Like cubital tunnel syndrome if little and ring finger involved, if index and middle finger involved means carpal tunnel syndrome. Once someone correct these, things will improve. Wish you all the best. Get it checked by orthopaedic surgeon. Update me.

You can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. It looks like you are is important to check that. Anemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. •standing hamstring stretch: place the heel of your injured leg on a stool about 15 inches high. Keep your knee straight. Lean forward, bending at the hips until you feel a mild stretch in the back of your thigh. Make sure you do not roll your shoulders and bend at the waist when doing this or you will stretch your lower back instead of your leg. Hold the stretch for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •cat and camel: get down on your hands and knees. Let your stomach sag, allowing your back to curve downward. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Then arch your back and hold for 5 seconds. Do 3 sets of 10. •quadruped arm/leg raise: get down on your hands and knees. Tighten your abdominal muscles to stiffen your spine. While keeping your abdominals tight, raise one arm and the opposite leg away from you. Hold this position for 5 seconds. Lower your arm and leg slowly and alternate sides. Do this 10 times on each side pelvic tilt: lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your abdominal muscles and push your lower back into the floor. Hold this position for 5 seconds, then relax. Do 3 sets of 10. •partial curl: lie on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Tighten your stomach muscles. Tuck your chin to your chest. With your hands stretched out in front of you, curl your upper body forward until your shoulders clear the floor. Hold this position for 3 seconds. Don't hold your breath. It helps to breathe out as you lift your shoulders up. Relax. Repeat 10 times. Build to 3 sets of 10. To challenge yourself, clasp your hands behind your head and keep your elbows out to the side. •gluteal stretch: lying on back with both knees bent, rest the ankle of one leg over the knee of your other leg. Grasp the thigh of the bottom leg and pull that knee toward your chest. You will feel a stretch along the buttocks and possibly along the outside of your hip on the top leg. Hold this for 15 to 30 seconds. Repeat 3 times. •extension exercise: lie face down on the floor for 5 minutes. If this hurts too much, lie face down with a pillow under your stomach. This should relieve your leg or back pain. When you can lie on your stomach for 5 minutes without a pillow, then you can continue with the rest of this exercise. Wall calf stretchstand about two feet away from a wall. Place the ball of your right foot against the wall while your heel remains on the ground. Slowly and gently lean into the wall while keeping your knee straight. Hold this for the 10 sec with repetition of 3 times. Knee pain ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. Stiffness have developed due to weakness of the ligaments &inflammed cartilage. Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping ball underneath the knee and keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee rheumatoid arthritis multiple joint pains / early morning painit is called as rheumatic arthritis. Treatment goals •to protect the joint from further damages. •provide pin relief. •prevent deformity and disabilities. •increase functional capacity. •improve flexibility and strength. •encourage regular exercise. •improve general fitness. Physiotherapy modalities - hot/cold applications- electrical stimulation- hydrotherapy and spa therapy rehabilitation treatment technique - rest and splinting - compression gloves - assistive devices and adaptive equipment - massage therapy - therapeutic exercise - patient education.

Like all autoimmune diseases, aosd has no permanent cure. However, with proper treatment it can definitely be managed such that you can lead a normal life. If left untreated, it can lead to permanent joint damage, and sometimes life threatening complications like mas or myocarditis. I strongly suggest that you consult with a rheumatologist for further management. Stopping steroids suddenly may be dangerous.
