really osteoarthritis is very painful problem..first she needs a supportive therapy as anti inflammatory drugs in long run leads to peptic ulcers.give her cold and hot alternative hydrotherapy for 10 times in morning and evening,then knee massages with herbal warm oil will help her to reduce her pain and knee join excercises ..along with physiotherapy will heal the problem and try to be relaxed as stress will increase the stiffness in joints so practice meditation,deeper relaxations to release the endorphins from the body to relax the stiffend tendons ,muscles in the joins .keep her busy always with her freind encourage walking daily., along with good sleep. Give her aloevera juice every days 2spoons daily morning and evening.ayur medicne narayana guggulu 2 tabs twice daily will really gives good reslt and you can try for acupuncturetreatment.regards dr.bharathi Ms.

Get a good consultation and proper treatment. This will need regular follow up and physiotherapy. This itself will ease her problem very much

A few months ago, my Mum went to the hospital to get a part of hear heart removed because she didnt need it. It is common for people to have this but I cannot remember the name of it. Anyway, her operation wasnt sucessful so she had to get a pacemaker . She has had some check-ups and the doctors said it was working fine, until, last time she went for a check-up the doctors said that it isnt working as well as it should. My Mum used to take tablets to help her before her operations but she only got her operations so she wouldnt have to take them anymore. She said that she doesnt want to go through the operation again and that she s not going back to her tablets. :( I am very close to my Mum so it worries me what could happen to her if she doesnt take her tablets because her pacemaker isnt working as it should. Is their any chance she could die?? :( I don t want her to : ( Is it possible for it to happen : (

I really need help i have no idea of what to do well im 15 and going through my exams, my mum has been a alcoholic all my life. I lived with my dad over in wales when i had to be taken from his care for various reasons but im ok with him now! so i had to go live with my mum and i have all my exams; anywho i was so stressed because the school has put a giant weight over my shoulders with work thats all i seem to be doing. Now my mum has started drinking she attacted my 17 year old sister the other day i had to drag her off her, she was drunk at the time. Now i have to do so much work ontop of my home life. im staying with my grandparents at the moment who i adore.. but im scared now that the weights im carring will break my back or shoulder's which ever. All my past is comming up in my head and my sleeping problem has popped up out of thin air. I hide my feeling from family and friends and tend to hold inn the heart ake of my life seeing as it is too much to bare. But i always say to my self that alot more people are doing worse and then feel guilty should i be feeling guilty and what should i tell my mum to stop her going through this downward spiral? Is my life ever going to be normal? i know im 15 and terrible at spelling but i wated to write a book about it but wouldn't know where to start. my family are now worried i have anerexia because i dont want to eat and have lost appetite. Im a changed person quite nervios and powernoid and i hate it. i saw my mum the other day she was drunk and i was with my grandparent i felt pitty on her i dont know if i have grown up too fast but i need help and dont know how to get it.

I just found out my 12 year old has this disease. We thought it was Scoliosis but this sounds worse! We were given exercises to do and plan on helping her lose some weight and then the doctor wants to see her again in 6 months. She has a 80% curve right now. Her back already hurts, and now my heart does for her! Why didn t her give her a brace to use? Would that help? What about Chiropratic, Massage or Physio Therapy? Would any of that help? We saw the top children s specialist in the area and want to trust him but this is all so scary!

After just checking on him, 20 big glasses of water and can t stop drinking raised alarm bells in my head. is this normal?
