Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoporesis

I am suffering from Rheumatoid Arthritis and Osteoporosis and my pain has increased very high in few days that I can't walk, sit and eat. I am not able to get up from bed in morning. My pain area includes my hand(shoulder, elbow and finger joints) and knee.

I am going weaker day by day. I have my check up at cmc vellore and my next appointment is after 1 month but I cannot bear the pain for so long.

What should I do to relieve the pain at home. Kindly suggest soon!

Thank you for asking

I read your question and I understand your concern. With rheumatoid arthritis already diagnosed there is no wonder you have this pain and morning stiffness. It needs pain management with DMARD as well as NSAIDS. Get a rheumatologist and let them adjust the dosages for you.

I hope it helps. Consult your doctor as our advice is just for education purposes only.

Take care
