Joints make noise on opening, painful. Cause and cure? - Online Doctor Chats
please proceed with the query.
I am XXXXXXX and i have a regular prob wherein my joints when i open them make noises as if there is less lubrication
which when aggrevates is really painful that i have to take a painkiller
How old are you
Have you taken any x XXXXXXX of the joints
I had done for my shoulders but not my elbow joints
Which joints are involved most.
The doc told me that it is normal andd nothing to worry but i am not satisfied as i fear that as i age it might turn out to be more problematic
elbow joint mostly
so your x rays were normal
which is causing these sound and pain too
the doc didnt tell me anything adverrse, he told that i dont have cervical and i need to exercise.its just that my muscle go to a spasm mode as per docs
But what is the cause for reduction in fluid and what should be done
what is your weight?
Not sure but last time when i had weighed i was 74
ok , your height
Do you exercise regularly.
I was waiting for your reply
No dont get the time as i have a hectic schedule.living nuclear and in a full time job
and increase your fluid and milk inatke
also try to exercise atleast during weekends
this will increase the mobility
Calcium - i regularly take milk
Ya i am bad with my fluid intake though
It is good if you take calcium for a short while
even though you take milk
because after delivery, child birth there will be shortage of calcium in all women
i take in between the calcium tablets but tht too hasnt helped
Ya i agree but i had got my calcium level too checked and it was in normal range
Increase the fluid intake then,let us see if any changes are there.Drink 1 to 2 litres of water
Somewhere i think it is related to my stomach...when i hv bowel prob i feel my pain is aggrevatin
sitting for long hours front of computer can cause this.You can try TENS therapy is pain is more
ya...actually when i stretch i feel noises inmy neck and arms
what is tens therapy?
you might need 5 to 6 sessions
it is used for muscle and joint pain
ok and will it be a permanent solution or i need to get it done of and on as in every 6 months or just once and for all 5-6 sessions
It depends, if the problem is just muscle related and not due to nay underlying medcial condition
it wiill be a one time thing
If the prob would persist even after TENS then what would be the way further?
Orthpedician, if x XXXXXXX is done then MRI possibly for any nerve related problem
