Hi doctor, i have joint pains problem, facing this since 6 years. In initial stage it was less. Slowly it has been increasing. I consulted with number of doctors for this. All most all the people said that it is rhumatoid arthretis. They have given pain killer tablets. This made some more side effects in my body. Recently i did master health checkup in Apollo hospitals. They said that it is not rhumatiod arthretis, it is blood infection. I took treatment for that blood infection for 6 days. Even after that i am getting the same problem. Earlier I used to take alcohol and nonveg. It was increasing. If i take nonveg items, definately i can expect, pain will come tommorrow in some part of my body. If i take any oil food items, pain will come on next day. Now i stopped everything. I am not using these alcohol, nonveg, oil food items since one year. Even now also pains are comming. I dont know what to do. Doctors said that it is rhumetoid arthretis. But so far, i never get RA Factor as positive. When ever i tested, always RA Factor is Negative. one year back Uric acid was 6.2. Now it has reduced to 4.6 mg/dl. CRP(C-REACTIVE PROTEIN) test result is 6mg/L I dont know what is this. Some doctors are telling like, even though RA Factor is Negative, it is Rhumatoid Arthritis only. That i have to take pain killers for life long, there is no other alternative. and I have to keep this in control as sugar patient. I took homeopathic treatment for almost one year. There is no result. What is my position is, i dont know, what is my desease exactly. If i stand more that one or two hours, pain come in legs. If there is any problem in food, pain comes. But in any test, there were no wrong results. Every test is fine. Recently on my birthday occassion, i had some cake. Next day morning i could not tolerate the pains. Sir please help me... what to do.

I am 51 years old. My estrogen and hormone levels are almost at zero. my doctor started me on EEMT DS 1.2/2.5 mg and provera 2.5 mg. It has been over 3 weeks and I do not feel any different. I am scheduled in 2 weeks to take another blood test to check the levels, but feel so weak, depressed and lifeless. Is it possible that I may need stronger or a different hormone therapy

For the past 4 days, my blood pressure has been running anywhere from 130/95 to 120/102. My blood pressure is usually normal (typically 120/78 or so). I have high cholesterol and a family history of heart disease & am 51. What I don t understand is the numbers being close together. My last reading was 119/102.
