Rheumatoid arthritis (a chronic disorder of the joints) has become a leading cause of disability worldwide. The characteristic features of RA are---- joint pain, stiffness of the joints and eventually the joints get deformed. The exact cause of RA is not known but it is probably an autoimmune disorder. This means that your body’s own defense cells attack the joints and damage them. RA can occur at any age but the disease is more common in women (between the ages of 20-50).

 

The prescription medications used to treat rheumatoid arthritis (RA) are not very effective and the side effects of the medications can be problematic. Due to the limitations of the prescription medications people with arthritis often go for alternative therapies like homeopathy.

 

But a dilemma is ----whether these treatments work? And are they safe?

 

Symptoms

 

The course of RA is characterized by episodes of remission (period in which the patient is absolutely free from symptoms) and flare-ups (when the disease is active).
Some of the common symptoms during a flare up of RA are:

  • Joint pain, swelling, redness and tenderness
  • Joint stiffness and limitation of the range of motion of the joint
  • Deformities of hands and feet (usually seen at later stages of the disease)
  • Muscular aches and pains
  • Fever
  • Loss of appetite
  • Round, and painless nodules under the skin
  • Anemia

    Ankit Sharna, your mom might also be suffering from cervical spondylitis; that's just a guess only. Please consult a competent homeopath, who can observe and, or diagnose the root cause of left sided pains. The Arnica Montana 6 can be useful for reliving the pains and intermittent doses of Sulfur 200 and Symphytum 1M are also helpful in most of the cases, whereas the Acid Formica 30 will help reducing inflammations or deposits around the joints, but so consult a homeopath.
