Ponstan For Pain Relief?
Hello, I want to ask … Can an ulcer sufferer take pounds to reduce pain in the palm of the hand? My left palm is very painful, even though it has been sorted, and now the pain and aching fingers of my left hand. Is it rheumatic? Even though I am under 20 years old, please explain, doctor, thank you
Hello Princess, thank you for the question.
The drug you mentioned is a drug that contains the active ingredient of mefenamic acid which belongs to a group of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs and is usually used to treat mild to moderate pain, such as menstrual pain, joint pain, postoperative pain, muscle aches, toothache, pain head, and so on. These drugs can cause side effects in the digestive tract and worsen complaints, especially in people who have heartburn. Side effects that can occur include heartburn, gastrointestinal bleeding, diarrhea, nausea, vomiting, etc., so that its use is recommended by a doctor's prescription, may not be for long-term use, and consumed when or immediately after eating.
Pain in the palm of the hand can be caused by several things such as inflammation of the joints, tendons, muscles, neurological disorders such as carpal tunnel syndrome, and so forth. Inflammation in the joints can be caused by rheumatic diseases, gout, etc. Rheumatic disease is an autoimmune disease in which body cells invade one's own cells, in this case attacking joint areas so that the joints become inflamed and cause symptoms such as the following:
Swollen joints due to fluid buildup Stiff joints, especially in the morning or after long periods of inactivity Red and hot. Pain from active inflammation If complaints are felt to be disturbing, you should consult a doctor, the doctor will carry out direct examination and additional examinations if needed such as laboratory tests, X-rays, and so on. To reduce complaints, you should avoid using excessive pain in your hand so that it does not worsen inflammation, cold compresses if complaints are accompanied by severe pain, swelling, and redness, reduce stress, exercise regularly, get enough rest, and adopt a healthy and nutritious diet.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
