Please tell me what should i do ?

Hi All,
I am sandeep from India,Actually i had to ask one thing regarding Arthritis One of my best friend is suffering thorugh it.He always have acute pain in his back he has been taking treatment from last 2 years but there is no relief so far One thing that i should mention is that,He never speak out about his pain, and now he is not mentally stable as he thinks that he can't live normal life.
I don't have any knowledge of arthritis as i am a software engineer.
Please tell me where (India)he can take treatment, Is it curable ?
how much time it will take ? Will he be able to live like others ?
How should i handle him ?

Hi Sandeep,

I was very sad to read your post today. Your friend sounds very unhappy at the moment. What medicines has he been taking over the last 2 years? Has he been diagnosed with a specific type of arthritis? Treatment all depends on what he has, he needs to see a specialist. As for feeling so low he doesnt want to live, a lot of people with a lifelong illness feel that way at times, but he has to find something to do that doesnt make him feel too bad and that he enjoys. On good days do more on bad days rest and do hardly anything. Sorry to hear his news, I hope he feels better soon and that he gets the correct treatment. I hope others answer your thread and help you with their advice. You should treat him the same as all your other friends, but he sounds like he needs professional help.

Regards Ronnie

I'm very sorry to hear of your friend's condition. I'm relatively new to chronic arthritis/nerve related pain but it sounds like your friend may not be getting the medical care he needs. He should try new doctors, ask about new or at least different pain medications, try physical and occupational therapy and he should definitely see a psychiatrist or support group, and if he'd join this board he'd realize he's not alone in his struggle with arthritis and pain and can get a lot of great advice and support. Make a new post and ask some more specific questions of the board and I'm sure you'll get the answers you need for your friend...good luck.
