Treatment For Pain In The Legs That Makes It Difficult To Walk?
Because my mother always complained of pain at my feet, I was confused about what the medicine was, had been treated but remained. Until my mother could not walk far if she was taken far, her legs would hurt. Thanks…
Hello Zaetun, thank you for asking.
The two diseases that you are asking are two very different conditions. Gouty arthritis or so-called lay language is gout, a condition of joint inflammation caused by uric acid levels that are higher than normal. Uric acid, which is the end result of protein metabolism, should be released from the body through urine. In a body condition that produces too much uric acid, not all of this uric acid can be excreted in the urine. Uric acid which accumulates then forms crystals in the joints of the hands, knees, or feet, and causes pain, redness, stiffness, and swelling of the joints.
Pain attacks can occur for several days to several weeks, then disappear. Pain can occur again a few months later. Some of the factors that cause this disease include consumption of high purine foods (for example, offal, red meat), consumption of certain drugs that interfere with the work of the kidneys, or certain diseases such as diabetes. This disease is diagnosed by assessing uric acid levels in the blood and urine, imaging tests such as MRI and CT-scan, or joint fluid examination.
Varicose veins are a condition in which veins dilate, causing disruption of blood flow back from the body's tissues to the heart. Varicose veins cause blood vessels to widen and twist, sometimes accompanied by swelling and pain. Generally occurs in the legs due to gravity and weight pressure. Some factors that trigger this condition are, age, female sex, obesity, habit of standing for too long, and diseases that affect blood vessels.
Unfortunately you do not give an explanation about how long the symptoms have been felt by your mother, such as what is the picture of pain, in which part of the leg, one or both legs, whether regarding joints or muscles and bones, whether preceded by a history of injury, surgery, consumption of certain drugs, whether accompanied by other diseases. The available information is insufficient to provide the possibility of targeted diagnosis. Foot pain can not only be caused by disorders of the foot structure, but can also be caused by disorders of the spine. We recommend that you invite your mother to see a doctor of internal medicine, tell the symptoms chronologically, so the doctor can assess directly the condition of your mother.
Thus a little information from us. Hopefully enlighten. Regards.
