A 28-years-old software engineer, Mr. S. R. (PIN 11923) came to Life Force to consult Dr. Rajesh Shah on 20th March, 2009 with the complaint of pain in both the hip joints. He was suffering from this complaint since more than one year. He was asked to undergo blood investigations and X-ray. His HLA-B27 test turned to be positive. He was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis.
He was suffering from severe pain and stiffness in both the hip joints and lower back. He was also experiencing a tingling sensation and numbness in his both the thighs and burning soles. His complaints would get worse at night, particularly at 3-5 am, after overwork and in the damp weather. He was taking pain killers from the last 4 months.
He was having craving for sweets. He was sensitive to the cold air and cold water. All his complaints would turn worse in the winter.
Mr. S. R. was a software engineer, and he was staying with his friends. He was anxious by nature. He was having a lot of anxiety about his family and about his work. Before every important meeting, he used to feel very nervous and anxious.
He was a very talkative person. He always liked to stay in company. He was a very social person, who always liked to help others.
Dr. Rajesh Shah studied his case in detail and prescribed his research-based medicines to the patient.
Within four to six weeks of time, his pain and stiffness in hip joints and back got reduced. The symptoms of tingling sensation, numbness, and burning soles were still present.
In the next three months, the frequency of his pain and stiffness got reduced to just twice in a week. Tingling sensation, numbness, and burning soles also got reduced. His mobility improved significantly.
By the fourth month of the treatment, his pain had reduced considerably and his movements had also improved significantly. Symptoms of tingling sensation, numbness, and burning soles had also got reduced. He could stop taking the pain killers in 3-4 months. He was advised physiotherapy, and he could tolerate exercises after 3-4 months.
All his symptoms are under control now, and he is perfectively all right. He is still under our care for maintenance. He has been symptoms-free and free from pain killers since more than one year.
