I would like to give some tests:
1. Complete Blood Test
3. Fasting Blood Sugar
4. Upper Abdomen USG
6. Test for rheumatoid factor
and anti-citrullinated protein antibodies
There are many tests to be done but I gave the most important ones. I tried to keep it convenient for you as much as I could.
I also ask you to start this medication:
2. For pain, Ibuprofen
. If you peel burning sensation after taking this, please consider taking Pantoprazole
before taking Ibuprofen.
Other ways to adopt for your treatments:
Physical therapy: Physical and occupational therapists may help you exercise your arms, legs, and hands. They may teach you new ways to do things at home.
Transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation: This treatment, called TENS, stimulates your nerves and may decrease your pain. Wires are attached to pads. The pads are attached to your skin. The wires send a mild current through your nerves. Do not have TENS if you have a pacemaker or are pregnant.
Brace or splint: You may need a device that supports or holds a body part still. For example, if you have carpal tunnel syndrome
, you may need to wear a wrist brace.
For this, you may need to go to any clinic who have this facility.
You can also follow these guidelines:
