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.
