Thanks for your query on HCM
"As"per your clinical history is concerned please follow like this -
1)Do a clinical exam by your Doctor and do few investigations to confirm it [CBC with differential, ESR, rheumatoid factor
and anti-CCP antibodies
2)Discuss with your Doctor about OTC pain killers like [Ibuprofen] & [Corticosteroid] and take other medications after investigations only.
Do follow lifestyle modifications like this -
1)Do exercise regularly. Gentle exercise can help strengthen the muscles around your joints, and it can help fight fatigue
you might feel. Check with your doctor before you start exercising. If you're just getting started, begin by taking a walk. Avoid exercising tender, injured or severely inflamed joints.
2)Apply heat or cold
. Heat can help ease your pain and relax tense, painful muscles. Cold may dull the sensation of pain. Cold also has a numbing effect and decreases muscle spasms.
3)Find ways to cope with pain by reducing stress
in your life. Techniques such as muscle relaxation can all be used to control pain.
Hope that helps
