hello.. first of all get your vitamin D3 and B12 levels checked as when they are low, your healing process slows down... you need to also show a good physiotherapist for exercises to recover..you can start still cycling which will not cause feet pain...you also need to control your uric acid levels through medication..for uric acid avoid red meat, organ meats, chicken, fish, eggs, spinach, beans.. for gastric problem avoid milk and wheat.. have other cereals like oats, jowar, ragi, brown rice..eat small meals every 2-3 hours.. fruits, nuts, sprouts etc as mid meals.. keep dinner light like soups, salads and veggies..drink lot of water..rest well..

hi,
primary cause for pain is your weight, another cause will be the gaout as uric acid level is high.As you have the gastric problem your diegestive system is also poor.i will suggest you the ayurveda treatment ,panchakarma along vit yoga.Varunadi kashay+sahacharadi kashay 2tsf twice daily after food, tab chandraprabha 2 tab twice daily before food,haritaki churna 2tsf as laxative at bed time with worm water. these all medicins are awailable in any ayurvedic shops in india, if you r from out of india contact me on - dr.shilpa.benade@gmail.com.

I am a 32 year old female. I have never had children. I don t have visible varicose veins, but they run in my family. I had an area of decreased sensation above my knee and after a couple visits with my doctor, she sent me for a vein ultrasound to see if that could shed any light on the problem. I had no other symptoms. The ultrasound showed reflux in my common femoral vein and saphenofemoral junction and a small anterior branch of another vein along my thigh, I believe. My doctor said that losing weight and keeping my feet elevated when possible and increasing my exercise will help. That is all she recommended at this point. I am, however, just filled with panic and dread after reading about DEEP CVI online. She told me that I can still have children, but I am scared to death. She didn t recommend compression stockings, but I fear that it will come to that in the future, but I don t know when!! That s what is so scary. I can t find anything about quickly this progresses. I keep thinking that some day soon, my legs are going to balloon up and cause me horrible pain, etc, like I read about online! Is there any way to tell how quickly this will progress?? and if exercising, etc, can really slow it down? I hate that it s my deep veins, not superficial.

For the past few months I ve had a lot of trouble with my right knee. When I cross my legs I notice that my knee needs to pop, but it won t. Sometimes it does this weird popping sound where it s almost like a ligament moving. It doesn t sound how your joints pop. I m not exactly sure what it is.

I am a 44-year-old kidney donor and am experiencing gout. Can the gout damage my remaining kidney? Are the drugs used for gout toxic to the kidneys? I am 6'2 and 215 pounds and a vegetarian. The pain is very disabling. I see a nephrologist on Friday, because my PCP cannot get the gout under control. I have taken two courses of steroids and the joint is still swollen and stiff.

Hi, my dad's blood pressure has been up since yesterday (ranges from 182/100 to 201/100). My dad says that he feels fine regardless. He's been taking his med, but his rheumatologist doctor told me that he has edema and gout. He received a shot for his gout yesterday, which relieved his pain, but his bp is still very high. I haven't heard from my dad's cardiologist on what to do, but is there anything I can do at home to improve his bp? My dad's bp normally averages 160/90. Thanks for your help.
