Severe pain in the hands and legs. Done with blood tests. Taking Tayo 6K. Treatment? - Online Doctor Chats
My wife is 32 yrs old. From the past 6 months she has been complaining of severe pain in the hands and legs. We met a couple of doctors (General physician to Orthopedic) but the pain still persists. All her reports came normal except Vitamin D which was 11 and B12 which was
Give me a few minutes to read your query.
I would like to know what the doctors mentioned the cause of pain was?
the General Physician mentioned the pain was due to the Vitamin deficiency
basically, my wife takes care of home and work and hardly takes rest
she is up by 6 am and works till 11 pm
and this is an everyday routine
May I know if the pain is consistent throughout the day or if it varies with time of day?
but it appears to be something esle
it is consistent
and throughout the day
Does she feel better with sleep?
Or does the pain disturb her sleep?
no, the pain doesn't disturb her sleep
but recently she sweated a lot in her sleep
this happened a few times
Can you specify the exact locations of pain - is it the joints or other areas?
If it is the other areas can you name the areas involved?
it is from elbow to the palm and Knees to her foot
and when the hand is paining the elbow gets really hot (temperature)
Does she have swollen joints too?
Let me brief you.
The symptoms that your wife complaints are too vague and broad to understand what is going on exactly.
we got the sugar and thyroid tests done and the reports were normal
In addition we also need more tests to know about hemoglobin levels, immune status and so on to isolate the cause.
Is it Ok if I send you the reports I have?
if no specific cause is found, we manage this pain with drugs similar to antidepressants. Low dose of such medications will modify her pain receptors
and make her lead a better life.
All these evaluation are best done under guidance of a rheumatologist.
I would recommend that you consult a rheumatologist and find out if she has any other organic cause missed by physicians.
Have you followed?
can you recommend me a rheumatologist?
yes, I did
May I know your location?
I live in Sindhi Colony, Paradise
I practice in Bangalore and I am unaware of doctors in Hyderabad. But if I were you, I would visit a multispecialty hospital like Apollo or Care Hospitals to find best rheumatologist.
You can choose to do the same.
I'll do that.. thanks for your time and advise
But if you want other doctors, i can mail you other practising rheumatology clinics
to your email.
Will that be Ok?
sure. that would be a great help
