Safety Of Rheumatism Drug Consumption When Breastfeeding
night Dokmau asks, what rheumatism drug is safe for nursing mothers?
Thank you for the question.
Rheumatism is usually a layman's term used to describe rheumatoid arthritis, which is an inflammation of the joints due to autoimmune disorders that often make the joints feel painful, achy, stiff, tingling, redness, warm, even swell. Not only complaints in the joints, rheumatoid arthritis can also cause the appearance of systemic symptoms, such as fever, excessive sweating, weight loss, fatigue, and so on.
In fact, there are many other diseases whose symptoms are at a glance similar to rheumatoid arthritis, for example osteoarthritis, gout arthritis, septic arthritis, psoriatic arthritis, fibromyalgia, viral or bacterial infections, osteomyelitis, malnutrition, post-injury, bursitis, and so on.
If it's true that your condition has been checked by a doctor and diagnosed as rheumatism, of course the doctor will also give you the right treatment. Conversely, if it turns out you have never seen a doctor, and have just guessed your complaint arises because of rheumatism, we recommend that you do not rush to take the drug first.
Better, if your complaint is now similar to the symptoms of rheumatoid arthritis (as mentioned above), you first handle your complaint by:
Warm compresses or apply pain relievers to your joints are uncomfortable
Do not carelessly massage problem joints
Diligent exercise so that the joints are more relaxed
Maintain ideal body weight
Eat and drink healthy and contain rich in antioxidants
Don't smoke and don't worry too much
Conversely, if complaints arise that are very annoying and do not subside with the above trick, before taking any medication, it is safer if you first check with your doctor, yes .. Tell your doctor about your condition that is currently breastfeeding, so that any treatment given can be adjusted so it is safe for the baby you are breastfeeding.
I hope this helps.
