Doctor :   and i guess, your AIC is 8,6 ?
User :   yes Dr
Doctor :   you should not be eating burgers and potatoes
Doctor :   they are bad for diabetes
Doctor :   i guess, you are not following a healthy diet
Doctor :   and thats the reason for your uncontrolled diabtes and hence your symptoms
User :   Though I got relief from the pain

Doctor :   you can take any painkiller
Doctor :   but the main issue whats the cause of the pain
User :   Actully I have taken three TAB, one that night and two yesterday
Doctor :   this needs to be diagnosed
Doctor :   1 - it could be arthritis
Doctor :   2. it could be neuropathy
Doctor :   the dosage you have taken is very high
Doctor :   usually the medication is taken, twice as it has 100 mg nimesulide in it and it is a Antiinflammatory medication
Doctor :   so it definitely kills the pain
Doctor :   but when you go to the doctor tomorow, a physical examination , will help to know the cause of the pain
User :   Sir, I have taken the TAB on 4th Night and 5th Morning and night is it high DR?
Doctor :   thats ok

Doctor :   and you can follow it
User :   Finally Dr. Can you advise is this pototo and Burger can cause the gas and IS THIS GAS can give SO MUCH PAIN DR?
Doctor :   Are u following me ?
User :   YES DR
Doctor :   yes, gastritis can cause pain, but it does not cause pain in the legs and knees
Doctor :   the pain is more in the stomach and on the left side
Doctor :   taking a antacid like gelusil, will be more effective to control the symptom
Doctor :   and Cap Omez 20 mg twice daily will reduce any acidity
Doctor :   But if u think the pharmacist gave you a medicine for gas, then you are mis informed
Doctor :   and probably you dont have gastritis
Doctor :   when you go to see your doc, he will examine you
User :   OKAY DR
Doctor :   ask him to examine your stomach
Doctor :   and then describe the symptoms to him
Doctor :   he will then tell u whether it is gastritis or something else
User :   Thanks you Dr for the information
User :   good day
Doctor :   you too
Doctor :   you are welcome
