Rheumatoid Arthritis - Please Help

Dear Sir/Mam,
I am 36 years, male, from India. I am having Rheumatoid Arthritis of Monoarticular variety in my right knee since 2001. It started with a normal in my knee and detected to be having Uric Acid on the higher side. When Uric acid was controlled the pain did not subside and after several tests etc. The disease was identified clinically. Over the years I have gone thru every possible treatment Allopathy, Ayurveda, Homeopathy etc. Last year in Nov. I had my Total Knee replacement done as the knee was in very bad condition. After the operation also I still feel some pain and have difficulty in bending my knee. Edema is also there. I had a cyst developed last 2 years beside the knee only, which was removed during the TKR operation, now some amount of fluid gets accumulated in the empty place where the cyst was present.
Please help to gain my mobility.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
I would strongly suggest you to take Aloe 30, every evening for 3 days. This helps to start clean.

After a 4 days gap, start with the following medicine (Courtesy: Joe)

Arg Met 6c, wet dose, twice a day for 1 month and report back.

Please read my profile for instructions on preparing wet dose.

Thanks. How to check your profile? I am very new to this site.
I have a homeopathic medicine Aloe Vera Juice. Can I take it instead of Aloe 30 are they same?
I take pain killer (Voveran SR 100) 1 everyday. If I don't take it the knee is more stiff.
I would also like to inform I have around 1-1.5 inch muscle wasting on my right thigh.
For the edema I am advised Symphytum 1M. Earlier I used to have symphytum 200 whenever there was any swelling. I am told this also good for osteoporosis which is also there (during operation Dr. said my bone density is less).

Click on my name (Reva V) will show the profile. Instead, I copied the wet dose instruction below.

Aloe vera juice is close equivalent. You can take it.

Arg Met 6c, in wet dose brought excellent clinical results.


Preparing Wet dose
====================
The wet dose is made up as follows:

Insert 2 drops of the Liquid Dilution or 3 pellets of the remedy into a 500ml bottle of spring water If you cannot get spring water, use purified water (like RO), but make sure the water has no chlorine.

Shake the bottle hard 10 times every time before taking a teaspoonful which is the dose. This is taken once or twice daily, as recommended.

Dr. Munawar Shaikh - ANA test +ve. X rays, MRI all done. Initially it was just synovial thickening and then it moved to cartilage erosion, bone erosion, and improper joint space. Stiffness is more during morning when I get up and also after I get up from rest. It started within 20 days of my marriage. There was no injury, stress, family history, diabetes, etc. everything normal prior to that. It started with just pain and then high uric acid was detected. I went for homeopathy but fluid started to get deposited in the suprapatellar pouch and then I moved to allopathy. Fluid was aspirated and cultured and no growth was found. First 2-3 years of the disease I had resident pains in the knee but after 3 years I shifted to Ayurveda and gradually I did not have any locational / resident pain but had problm in walking and the stiffness was there. Well I would like to mention 3-4 years prior to the pain in my knee, I had fever and it remained undetected and it took around 4-5 months before it vanished. I think that was Rheumatic Fever.
Well now also temp. remains in my body but mostly at the knee area and limbs. My body temp is higher but not like fever. No probs in motion and urine. Since 2009 the problems were aggravated after the cyst was noticed although the cyst was not painful. This was soft and doctor told its a ganglion cyst and might not be rheumatoid nodule.
I am 5 ft 7 inch in height and weight 66 Kgs. No other diseases. Pain did not shift to any other joint. Present problems: Range of movement is around 60 deg. After operation while doing physio I got back 90% but after joining office I could not do the bending exercises and it went back. I have restarted doing exercise, but having pain on the patellar region and on the right side of the knee from where the cyst was removed. I also numbness in this region of the knee. If I don't take pain killer I have difficulty in movement.
I have done the TKR operation last year. But now the uncomfortability and stiffness around my knee is more or less similar to that I was having before my operation.

To patient.

Hope you will be doing well and I wish you all the best with your treatment here.

Just a note of personal experience to share. Cherries are found very useful in treating URic acid problem. My family member had this problem and after using cherries ...about half pound daily as long as u can.. did help him.

Along with medicines I think these natural remedies also play good role. Do take them after consultation to your homeopaths.

Wish u a good health.

Take care

Hi... Pls start with Rhus tox 1m, 4-5 pills t.i.d and Ruta.graveolens 1m, 4-5 pilss, t.i.d, with a gap of 5 mins between each together for a week. It will help you with the mobility and improvment of ligament functions as well. Did u do an echocardiogram, any prob in valves? Let me know as rheumatic fever can also cause rheumatic endocarditis.Keep me posted .

Dr. Shaikh, I am taking Symphytum 1 M now. should I stop it? I also take Voveran SR 100 tab once a day for pain should I stop it also?
 
mchandan 8 years ago
Hi MChandan,
T.i.d means thrice in a day and pills means globules. Symphytum 1M if its helping u, u can continue. Rest of the things about ur Ecg and Body temp seem ok then as u say.
Meanwhile , try to avoid citrus food products as much as possible.So lets start with the prescription. All the best Get well soon.

I have started taking Rhus tox 1M and Ruta G 1m thrice a day since 22nd June. I am also taking Symphytum 1M 4-5 pills twice a day. The oedema or the swelling due to the cyst which was present earlier and removed during my operation is little lesser after taking Symphytum plus I have soft bones also so I was adviced Symph 1M for both. Well after my operation I have a burning sensation on the right side of the knee (the place where the cyst was present) particularly at the right periphery of the transplant. I also have numbness on this side (particularly the cyst area).
I have not yet noticed any improvement in my bending ability or stiffness after taking Rhus tox and Ruta G yet. I tried 1 day without my allopathic painkiller but my stiffness increases. I want to replace the allopathic medicine with homeopathic one. I have high SGPT and mostly have acidity problems if I eat sweets/oily food etc. Please advise will your previously advised medicines be ok for the stiffness and pain or I need to take something additional.
