Hello doctor,

My mother-in-law is suffering from muscle pain (no joint pains) with frequent urination. CBC, HbA1C and complete urine analysis were done and no alarming indications were there in the reports. Urine culture test reports are yet to come. Antibiotics and painkillers are not helping. Due to severe pain, she is not able to sleep as well.



Welcome to

Since when she is suffering? How old is your mother-in-law? Any morning stiffness? Since when is she suffering from diabetes? The possibility of fibromyalgia or rheumatoid arthritis or chronic fatigue syndrome or infection or menopausal symptoms, etc. Please get it done FSH, LH levels. Get it done ESR, RA factor. Use tablet Paracetamol thrice a day if necessary. Drink plenty of water. Please review with reports. Take care.

Hello doctor,

Thank you for your reply. She is 45 years old and as per the latest reports she is diagnosed with prediabetes. From the last 4 to 5 days she is suffering from severe pain. No fever as such, does Paracetamol help? Severe muscle pain, tiredness, dry mouth, frequent urination and unable to sleep are the symptoms. Is there any medication she can take to ease her pain? Pain is bothering her a lot.

In diabetic patients, there will be bladder bowel disturbance. Is it UTI or overactive bladder or cystitis to be evaluated by urodynamic studies and ultrasound abdomen? You may use Tramadol with Paracetamol twice if necessary. Use Ubinext LC tablet twice a day for five days. Usually, drugs are not advisable until the examination is done. If symptoms are not improved or developed, allergy to above drugs means you have to consult your doctor immediately. Take care.
