64 year old woman with Rheumatoid Arthritis

I am a 64 yr old Indian lady.

I am suffering from extreme pains of rheumatoid arthritis in most joints from the neck to the toes. Intensity of pain in various joints keeps shifting. Pains are usually worse towards evening and also interfere with sleep. I have lost many nights of sleep because of severe pains in one place or another.

Prominent symptoms are -

1/ Shooting pain the left upper arm and left knee.
2/ In both hands -- feeling of a web all over / inflammation
3/ Can not lift up arms all the way up. Changing clothes, change of posture is painful most of the times.
4/ Nails are corrugated.
5/ Feel colder than others around. Take comfort in hot drinks spicy food and hot water bottles.
6/ Feel depressed and angry because of the prolonged attack. Have been constantly suffering for the past 4 months.
7/ Like to eat sweet more than salt. Like hot and spicy meals. Take 1 or 2 cups of tea in a day.

Health History -

1/ Nervous depression - 4 times 1968, 1980, 1992, 2006 cured each time through homeopathy naturopathy.
2/ Diabetes - Since 2000 mostly under control taking homeopathy/naturopathy treatment for the same.
3/ Arthritis - Since 2006 Mostly short-termed severe attacks which were taken care of by homeopathic treatment. But at present used in the past seems to be making effect.

Medicine History --

1/ For depression -- Pulsatilla 10M in 1992 cured depression. In 2006 naturopathy

2/ For diabetes -- Bitter gourd juice / fenugreek seeds / aloevera / guggal / madhunashini (ayurvedic)

3/ Arthritis -- RhusTox has given relief in the past. Have been taking 1/2 pill of Combiflam morning/evening for the past month for temporary relief.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
What is ur body weight and hight? Describe ur digestion and urine and stool in details. Describe ur mental condition for now. What makes ur pain relief a bit cold or heat? movement reduces pain or increases pain? Do u have any skin problem? Only left side of ur body is affected or both side u have same problem in same deepness? Do u have pains in muscles of actually just in joints? Which kind of pain u feel usually- as electric shock like, as pinning, as heavy weight is given upon ur painful areas or inflammation like pain. Do u have burning sensation in any areas of ur body?

Answer all those above questions and thn I may prescribe u some good medicine for u.

48Kgs and 5 feet 2 inches.

Digestion and stools are normal. I take good amount of water and pass urine 4-5 time in the day. I keep away from liquids in the evening for the fear that getting up in the night for toilet would be painful.

Hot water bath seems to give some relief. So does putting feet in the hot water. Tried icepack on the joints once -- did not seem to make any effect.

Walking and movement does not seem to relieve pains. I volunteer to a school in the mornings -- get tired after spending two hours there.

No skin problem. Left big toe got infected by fungus some 6 months back.

Pain is on both sides of the body, though it pains more on the left side of the body (hands, knees, neck, arms, etc are more painful on the left side).

Pain is not just limited to the joints. Pain in the muscles and bones too.

Inflammation like pain. Continuous pain in the knees. Wary of getting touched because pain aggravates when inflamed parts are pressed hard. I become anxious if my grand children are playing in the same room -- wary that one of them may not fall on me.

Burning sensation is not present.

Regards and thanks for your help.

Need to add mental condition.

Anxious and worried about the pains. Get impatient and angry when pains aggravated.

Anxious and worried about my daughter who is not happily married. Son started new business, adds to my anxiety.

Take Arnica 30c twice a day at morning and at night 30 min before breakfast for 5 days and thn report me here.

One dose each time contains two drops of liquid medicine mixed with a cup of water.

As suggested I have taken Arnica 30 twice a day for the past 4 days, but there is no improvement in my condition.

Also wanted to report that there is significant swelling on the left knee. This is not a result of Arnica, I just forgot to report it earlier.

Regards
