Hi doctor,

I am suffering from joint pains from last two years. I get pain in fingers, palms, knee joints, heels, and soles. I consulted doctors few times, and they tell me to take Colchicine, Dolo, Myotop, and Nucoxia, whenever I get pain. But these days, I am getting the pain very frequently, like 3 to 4 times a month. I do not know what to do. Can you please suggest what to do? I have attached my reports for your reference. Thanks.

Hi doctor,

Thanks for the reply. I have attached my reports for your reference. Now, I have pain in the right-hand little finger with swelling. Generally, after taking medicines, the pain gets cured but next time, I get pain in some other joints. This is happening from last two years. I am totally confused. If I take these painkillers regularly, it is not good for health? I also took Vitamin D medicine for two months, as I am still having pain. I request you to tell me what might be my exact disease and how to cure it. Thanks.

  1. Anti-CCP (anti-cyclic citrullinated peptide).
  2. HLA-B27 (human leukocyte antigen).
  • I suggest you try taking the following:
  1. Tablet Wysolone (Prednisolone) 5 mg, thrice for three days. Then twice daily for three days and finally once for three days. It is a total course of nine days.
  2. Tablet Rabeprazole 20 mg, twice daily for 10 days after food.
  3. Tablet Shelcal (Calcium) 500 mg, twice for 30 days before food.
  4. Tablet Vitamin D (60 K) units, once daily for 10 days, then once a month for 11 months.
  • Take these tablets only if you are not allergic to them. Follow-up immediately in case of any adverse reaction.
