I have been told that i will get arthritis in my knee in 10 to 20 years due to a recent fracture. What can I do?

Be active: Osteoarthritis (oa) is an age related process that everyone will go through. You may develop premature oa if your fracture caused the surface of the knee joint to become slightly irregular. Either way, it is important to be physically active in things you like to do and keep the weight off. Excess weight put extra strain on your knees which may lead to early oa. ...Read more

Chronic vulva pain might reflect symphysis pubis joint injury or pain referred from an injured sacroiliac joint. An osteopath might be best specialist to sort out. ...Read more

I'm in my 30's & have Fibromyalgia since I was 16 following a car wreck. I wanted to know if my mom doing drugs while pregnant would cause my fibro?

Not likely: 34 yo female with fibromyalgia post-MVA questions whether mother's use of drugs during pregnancy caused her fibromyalgia. A relationship is unlikely. There is marked association of fibromyalgia & Joint Hypermobility Syndrome, an inherited trait often passed from mother to daughter. Loose ligaments potentiate the delicate female pelvis to bio-mechanical injury from injurious MVA forces. ...Read more

Hello. : Hello. It sounds like a lot has happened in your life. I would let your father know about how depressed you feel as well as letting him know about your cutting. You do need to talk with a professional. On line resources are not a substitute for therapy. Please let your dad know and ask for him to arrange for you to see a psychiatrist. If this doesn't work, most schools have counselors and i would ask to talk with one. If you are having thoughts about killing or hurting yourself again, it is very important that you get help right away. That is serious. Give your dad a chance to be your dad by asking for his help take care. ...Read more

Hello doctor I am milan 37yrs old live in nepal I am a diabetes patients.What should I have to do to get rid from this?

Not an easy task: Obesity is one major risk factor for diabetes and if you are obese, losing wt back to your ideal body wt is the best/safest way to reverse diabetes. It may not be a permanent cure, but may keep at at bay for yrs. Gastric bypass is also extremely effective, but involves risks. A pancreatic transplant may do as well. Eat healthy, exercise, take your meds and see doc regularly. Good luck. ...Read more
