Dear Abdul majeed,thanks for query.I hope this has been diagnosed after confirmatory tests.You need to visit an orthopedic surgeon and he will prescribe regular treatment after proper examination.RA needs regular treatment and follow up.So it is better that you contact a doctor near your area.bye.

I am 68 years old vegetarian male, height 165 cms, weight 66 kgs and suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis since last 10 years. Main areas of the body which are affected are - Both Ankles, Both Wrists, Both Thumbs and Two Fingers in left hand. A Few Orthopedics I had consulted invariably put me on one or the other pain killer which had no long term benefit or relief. On the contrary, two years ago, suddenly I started feeling very weird in my head and entire body. After going through MRI, Blood and other tests, I was diagnosed with Hematoma and had to undergo brain surgery. Within one month of the operation, I was back to normal - I thank God, my family members, the Neurologist and the Surgeon for all this success. Since than, I have almost stopped taking Pain Killers unless absolutely required for stiffness, pain and swellings, although I know it gives only temporary relief and Adverse Side Effects in bonus! Now another Doctor has suggested me to consult Rheumatologist, but I am unable to find one where I live. Can any Rheumatologist suggest me appropriate cure for this ailment with all DO s and DONT s, the food, medicines etc I should consume and all the relevant information with details? Is this disease really non-curable? I would certainly and very much appreciate it. Sincerely, B.J. Trivedi.

Please direct this question to an ortopedic surgeon and/or an alternative medicine specialist. i m a 57 y.o. male, outta shape and overweight with two dislocated shoulders - one worse than the other (supposedly 3rd degree seperation/subluxation) but both give me chronic pain. the worst one has the classic hump where the bone has popped up out of the joint it s the worst but, the other one gives me quite a bit of pain too. all i have for pain is ibuproffen(handfulls) acetaminofen, and alcohol. My Dr. had breifly prescribed Gabbapentin which like Tylenol wasn t much help, essentially negligible. Some years back i had convinced a VA surgeon to do the standard operation but, upon researching it, i learned that only 50% of the time was it effective and of those, 50% developed arthritis in the shoulder. I need some real options/alternatives Doc. Been living with chronic pain for 15 years - not to mention the lack of funtionality. Any suggestions?
