knee swelling and pain while walking

My mother aged 60, has swelling in ONLY LEFT knee and pain while walking since 8 months. Doctor initially taken out some fluid from the knee (using an injection) and gave some antibiotic and pain killers. He also said that the joint is worn out.

Pain still persists , the drugs have not reduced the symptoms even mildly.

Based on some family fried's advice we have given Brionia 30 for 2-3weeks.
So far no change.

However during last month, there is a big cycst on her left breast - ofcourse the biopsy showed its benign
Is it a reaction of bryonia?

Please suggest any drug for her knee pain? She is 60, pain is only in left knee, she is overweight. Apetite is normal. However she has refluxes now and then. Sleep normal , could not find any other issues. Recently all blood / urine tests gave normal reports.

This is just a forum. Assume posts are not from medical professionals.
Use Ruta Grav 30 twice a day for 3 sucessive days and wait 2 weeks to judge result.

Stick to Walkin's advice.

the other advice is not homeopathy and will do more harm than good.

In mid of February 2006 Maria at the age of 11 had developed high fever 104oF plus but the cause of the high fever was unknown (FUO/PUO). All her test reports (CBC, Blood Culture, Urine DR and Culture) were clear except the CBC shown elevated WBC and ESR. The fever persists more than six weeks. She was under the treatment of a child specialist who assumed it as UTI and gave her CEFSPAN 400 mg orally for 5days but the condition of the patient was not improved. Then she was referred to another Child specialist who advised for ANA Anti-ds DNA test and recommends 2g I/V Rocephin Injection daily for one week to lower the high temperature. After one week medication the temperature was well in the normal range. There after advice to take CEFSPAN (Cefixime) 400 mg capsules for 5 days. The ANA Anti-ds DNA test was in normal range of (2.7 IU/ml)/0-6.0 IU/ml.
After few months she complained pain in her wrist joints but doctor’s termed it as due to the fixing of cannula’s for I/V Injection at same location. But later on when the pain aggravated further I took her to an orthopedic surgeon for treatment who on physical examining doubted as joints pain (JRA) that affected all the joints and advised for RA Factor test and to use Caflam (Diclofenac Potassium) 50mg. The RA Factor test was positive RAF, and since October 2007 her treatment for JRA started and by January 2009 when she was stable shifted to Homeopathic treatment due to adverse effect of DeltaCortil and Methotrexate.
During the holy month of Ramadan (August 2011) she was fasting as usual but her water intake was very low. In last week Ramadan on August 27 she had sore throat and developed high fever in the range of 104°F. The doctor (ENT Specialist) termed it as viral infection and advised her to take Capsule Velosef (Cephradine) 500mg thrice a day for 5 days but there was no improvement He then advised her to take the same medicine for 2 more days. But nothing has changed. There after she was advised to take CEFSPAN 400mg twice daily for one week, but this treatment also failed. Then I took her to Aga Khan Hospital where all lab. Tests were done. A brief history chart is attached.
After having all the test in normal range except CBC having elevated WBC, ESR, Platellets and C-Reactive Protein and Typhoid T-IgM positive, she was advised for 1.5g I/V Rocephin Injection twice daily for 5-days the temperature dropped down to 102oF. Then she was advised to have 1.5g I/V Rocephin Injection twice daily for 2-days along with 500mg I/V Amikacin Sulphate. After two day the temperature dropped to normal range and the medication was stopped.
After 3-4 days again she developed the fever and temperature started rising to 102oF plus I took her again to AGA Khan Hospital and then she was advised to take another Antibiotic (Ceproxin 200mg I/V along with 500mg Amikacin Sulphate twice daily for one week but this time both medicines did not work and fever was termed FUO/PUO.
Chest X-ray and Complete abdominal check up was done where in the U/S two problems were high lighted (i) a 14mm stone in Gallbladder and narrowing PUJ. But still the cause of high temperature is not known.
After going through U/S reports the doctor advised me to have CT Pyelogram of Maria to further clears the doubt of PUJ.
There after we took Maria to an Urologist who after going through the CT Pyelogram reports advised for two Radio Isotope Scans {DTPA Scan & DMSA Scan). After seeing both the reports he advised for surgery, and before surgery he performed the cystoscopy on October 18, 2011 to confirm that the problem is ONLY at Right PUJ. After Endoscopy he said he will operate her after two weeks. But the planned surgery was deferred to two reasons;
1: 1. During this period of illness having very high doses of Antibiotics she become physically too weak, her hemoglobin dropped from normal range and she had a very severe attack of Arthritis and it was very difficult for her even to move sides in the bed. Ultimately she was give Deltacortil 40mg twice daily + Nuberol Forte (Paracetamol BP 650 mg + Orphenadrine Citrate BP 50 mg) thrice daily + Synflex 550 mg (Naproxen Sodium) twice daily.
2: From January 25, 2012, she was advised by the Rheumatologist to take Deltacortil 10mg twice daily + Folic Acid 5 mg daily and Methotrexate 10 mg weekly and CAFLAM 50 mg when required. But her physical condition is not very good every day she has different complaint of pain in different joints, stiffness in hands, neck, legs, pain in pelvic and swelling of fingers and joints.
Here the Rheumatologist have these two drugs Deltacortil , Methotrexate and the side effect of both drugs are well known, and she is badly effected by these medicines. Due to bad effect of Deltacortil the Urologist deferred her surgery.
Finally on December 6, 2012 her PUJ surgery has been done and she is recovering fast, but on the other hand due to JRA she have pain, swelling and stiffness in all joints specially severe pain and swelling in her left knee.
Please advise some useful remedy for my daughter.
Thanks and Best Regards
