1 Answer:

Good morning, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Osteoarthritis is an inflammatory condition characterized by painful, swollen and stiff joints. The joints most commonly affected are those of the hands, knees, hips and spine, although they can affect any joint.

Among the factors that increase a person's risk for developing osteoarthritis are:

Age, that is, over 50 years: Female. Have a history of injury or surgery to joints. Overweight or obesity. Have a family history of similar complaints. Work or physical activity that causes a person to be exposed to pressure in certain parts continuously

Regarding your question about drugs for osteoarthritis, what doctors usually give are non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, topical pain relievers, antidepressant drugs, and undergoing physiotherapy to surgery. This treatment step requires you to check with your doctor first. To confirm the condition of osteoarthritis, your doctor will perform examinations in the form of X-rays, blood tests and possibly an MRI and analysis of joint fluid. If osteoarthritis has been proven, then the doctor will provide treatment, which usually includes painkillers that are not sold freely.

Meanwhile, what you can do at home is lose weight if you are overweight, take an over-the-counter pain medication for a while, apply painkiller ointment on the thumb, and warm compresses the painful area. Get well soon.

That's all, hope it helps.
