Orthopaedic Surgeon, Joint Replacement 's  Response
Jul 2013
Hi, thanks for writing to HCM. The investigations suggests that you have Rheumatoid arthritis which is an autoimmune disease and is a chronic one. As i practice allopathy medicine, i cannot comment upon the homeo and ayurvedic treatment you are receiving. I feel that you need to start "DMARD's" - disease modifying antirheumatic drugs. As you are having the disease for the past 15 years, deformities of the joints tend to occur which are very crippling. So i advise you to consult an orthopedic surgeon / rheumatologist and follow their advice. Hope this helps
