I’ve had stomach problems and panic attacks since I was 10. I’m almost 40 and have had acid reflux for about the last seven years and i.b.s symptoms for the last 3 or 4 years although the acid hadn’t been as bad for a couple of months or so.
I woke up in the early hours of Tuesday morning with painful stomach cramps (which can happen to me occasionally) and constipation. I also had flu symptoms from a few days earlier. I’ve struggle to eat properly which I think has made my stomach worse.
The last few days my knees have become very sore and painful to bend and I can’t walk normally. I also had an inflamed wound on my finger which I had to go to hospital with two days ago. The wound was dressed and I was given fluoxicillin. I had septicaemia in a wound on my thumb on the same hand about 8 weeks ago that tracked up my arm. About two weeks ago I had a swelling in my neck below the corner of my jaw that lasted a about 4 days. My family are shouting at me because I’m groaning with pain. I feel distressed and my panic problem kicked in making me feel partially paralyzed especially in my chest, stomach neck and face.
That has subsided a bit but now my elbows have also become painful. I managed to have a peppermint oil capsule which I knew had helped me in the past and my appetite came back a small amount today so managed to eat something decent at last which has helped my stomach a bit. But my joints are very painful is there any way to get a bit of relief?
Thanks for your help.
the joint pains seem to be due to synovitis and inflammation. you have to take anti inflammatory tablets for 3 days. wait to see if symptoms are relieved. if this doesnt help,u need to start antibiotics. applying compression bandage .
putting local analgesic gels should help.
For the stomach I think you need to get your food healthy alkaline type and it is better to go on a vegetarian diet ..
Your wound needs care to prevent infection.change the dressing and clean with betadine ..
Your joint pains are normal with flu ..
Take guava and vitamin c supplement.
Avoid caffeine and soda
Avoid citrus fruits.
Drink plenty of water.
You need to start yoga and exercising as soon as possible..
THE SWELLING AND PAIN OF THE AFFECTED JOINTS CAN BE TAKEN CARE OF BY TAKING ANTI INFLAMMATORY TABLETS ICE PACKS.
MAGNESIUM SULPHATE AND GLYCERINE APPLICATIONS HELP REDUCE THE SWELLING
raised uric acid levels seem to be a possibility. higher uric acid levels will mean that the diagnosis is gouty arthritis. xray of the affected parts, anti inflammatory,fibrinolytic enzymes will be quite helpful. splintage of affected part and restricting their movements will reduce inflammation
