Rheumatoid Arthritis, Myths & Facts, Dr. Ashish Badika, reheumatologyindore.com

Rheumatoid Arthritis – Myths & Facts – Dr. Ashish Badika – Arthritis & Rheumatology Center

It has been seen that people have various kinds of myths in relation to Rheumatoid arthritis (RA). Here are the facts:

Rheumatoid Arthritis Affects Only Joints

False. R can affect multiple body organs such as the heart, lungs, liver, and kidneys, not just the joints. In fact, it can also cause systemic symptoms such as fatigue, weakness, and fever.

Joints Deformities Cannot be Prevented

It is not like that. Joint deformities can be prevented if the treatment is optimized by the best use of medicines, this needs a lot of skill and experience which a qualified rheumatologist can only provide.

Rheumatoid Arthritis is an Incurable Disease

Development in the last few years options for the treatment of RA has evolved tremendously. Early diagnosis and a systematic approach for treating RA can be very effectively managed. In every stage of the disease, a qualified rheumatologist can use several interventions for relieving pain and stiffness.

Medicines Used in the Treatment of Rheumatoid Arthritis are Very Harmful

No doubt that the treatment of rheumatoid arthritis is very complex and must always be supervised by a highly experienced rheumatologist. Usage of correct medicines and the right doses will certainly give the desired benefit in RA avoiding side effects.

Ask your doubts and clarify with your Rheumatologist rather than believing false facts.

Rheumatoid Arthritis & Pain Killers – Dr. Ashiah Badika, Arthritis & Rheumatology Center, Indore

There are many medications your doctor could consider using for the treatment of your Joint pains in Rheumatoid Arthritis. Acetaminophen, Celecoxib, Etoricoxib,  Etodolac, Indomethacin, Ibuprofen, Naproxen, Diclofenac &  Aceclofenac are some of the drugs which help in managing pain, swelling, and stiffness.

Pain killers are also called Non-Steroidal Anti-Inflammatory Drugs (NSAIDs). These medicines are usually taken by mouth in pill form, but there are a number of topical creams and injections that can be used to reduce arthritis pain.

Pain killers help relieve rheumatoid pain but do not affect the cause or control the disease hence other types of medication are prescribed along with it depending on the patient’s condition.

Pain killers can not be used for long-term treatment otherwise they can cause various harmful side effects on important parts of the body as the liver, kidney, stomach, etc.

Do not take painkillers on your own and let your doctor decide when to start and stop.

When To Stop Treatment in Rheumatoid Arthritis -Dr. Ashish Badika, rheumatologyindore.com

The focus of treating rheumatoid arthritis has moved to early symptom relief, prevention of disability/deformities, and sustained relief. The current treatment goal of RA is to achieve the lowest possible level of arthritis activity and relief while minimizing joint damage and improving physical function and quality of life.

Effective diagnosis and treatment, especially treatments that inhibit or control inflammation, can help reduce the destructive effects of Rheumatoid Arthritis. Current therapies provide most patients with good or excellent symptom relief and allow them to continue to function at or near-normal levels. With the correct medication, many patients show no signs of active disease. While you are in remission, not only do the symptoms disappear but the disease also stops progressing.

The long-term goal of treating Rheumatoid Arthritis disease is to slow or stop disease, especially joint damage. Since RA cannot be cured, the goal of treatment is to reduce pain and stop further damage. To prevent Rheumatoid Arthritis patients from developing cardiovascular disease, Rheumatoid Arthritis treatment also aims to reduce the risk factors of cardiovascular disease.

When planning treatment, the rheumatologist takes into account the effectiveness and risks of drugs. Once your disease is controlled your doctor can reduce the dose/number of tables.

Never stop treatment on your own, nor continue taking drugs on your own to get protected from complications and side effects of drugs. It’s a lifelong disease with lifelong treatment under supervision.

To avoid long-term consequences and disability, rheumatoid arthritis must be treated early. Disease-modifying anti-rheumatic medications, novel biologic medicines, and techniques of switching between them are all discussed in newly reported guidelines with new, more aggressive treatment plans.

However treatment for RA varied depending on disease severity from early to established, both guidelines set therapy goals to target low disease activity or remission while maintaining performance and management of pain. Conventional disease-modifying anti-rheumatic medicines are favoured and should be started as soon as possible following diagnosis, ideally within three months of the beginning of persistent symptoms.

Nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory medications (NSAIDs) and glucocorticoids are helpful for clinical and functional improvement, particularly during flares.

Antitumor necrosis factor (anti-TNF) medications and non-TNF agents are the two types of biologicals used to treat RA. Small molecules (JAK kinase inhibitors) are also another class of drugs used for the treatment of RA.

Cost, dose frequency, patient desire, and insurance protocol are all factors that influence medicine selection. If a patient does not respond to one biological treatment, evidence justifies switching to another.

Rating scales, disease activity scores (DAS), clinical status, and laboratory follow-up are used to assess treatment response. Patients should be closely supervised by their doctors.
