What is causing joint pains in my mother?

My mother is suffering from chronic rheumatoid arthritis along with diabetes and this has been running for the past 11yrs now..Her recent blood & urine tests have shown moderately high levels of creatinine as 1.7, blood sugar levels as 95(Fasting) and 188(PP) and heamoglobin count as 6.5 ..After consulting a nephrologist she has been diagnosed with diabetic nephropathy & chronic kidney disease Stage 3 and has advised us to take Ertythropoiotin injections to raise haemglbn levels..The rheumatologist on the other hand has prescribed Paracetamol Dolo 650mg along with Citromacalvit & Salzar. Do you think the above medications are apt to her joint pains? Thanks,Deep

Hello,

The symptoms of your mother seem to be related to rheumatoid arthritis.

I suggest using anti-inflammatory medications such as Paracetamol Dolo as prescribed by your doctor.

I also suggest using cold compresses for local application.

Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.

Regards,
Dr.Dorina Gurabardhi, General &Family Physician
