Arthritis

What is the best treatment for Arthritis?

I'm having Arthritis (as per the doctor's assumption after seeing my blood report of CBC, CRP which are higher than the normal value) which occurred from viral fever for 7 days. The doctor didn't give me any medicine though.

Now I'm having a little ache in my both foot (heel) while walking. So would you please suggest.

It is to be mentioned that I have a stent in my heart (RCA) and need to walk regularly. I'm only 38 years old.

Hi there,
From your symptoms it seems that you are suffering from reactive arthritis. It is common after a genitourinary, gastric or throat infection. Viruses associated with reactive arthritis are herpes, hepatitis A, B and C, Epstein Barr virus, CMV etc.The symptoms will usually disappear within 6 months. Very small number develop into persistent arthritis. Inflammation may be treated with nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs. Use ice packs/heat packs. Discuss with your doctor about what pain killer can be taken and whether walking can be continued after taking pain killers. Do keep me posted.
Best wishes and regards!
