The main manifestations of rheumatoid arthritis are swelling and pain of bilateral metacarpophalangeal joints and proximal interphalangeal joints. After getting up in the morning, the pathological joint feels stiff (called morning stiffness), most of which can last for more than 1 hour.
The main manifestations of osteoarthritis are joint pain, stiffness, hypertrophy and limited movement. With the development of the disease, contracture dysfunction may occur.
Sjogrens syndrome is characterized by dry mouth and dry eyes, but it can also involve internal organs and systemic system. Patients often drink water frequently, teeth black off, recurrent dry keratoconjunctivitis.
Gout is mainly manifested by elevated serum uric acid, recurrent acute arthritis, gout stone and joint deformity, uric acid renal calculi.
What incidence rate of rheumatic and immunological diseases is particularly high in autumn? Mo Yingqian believes that this is closely related to the autumn climate and eating habits.
With the arrival of autumn, the weather gradually becomes cooler, and the temperature difference between day and night becomes larger. Some people dont pay attention to adding clothes in time or neglect keeping warm in limbs. When the joints get cold, it is easy to cause pain and swelling. Rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis and other diseases are more likely to take advantage of the wind.
The dry climate in autumn is also easy to induce diseases such as endocrine disorders and autonomic nervous dysfunction. Under autumn dryness, patients with Sjogrens syndrome are difficult to quench their thirst even if they drink water. They are also prone to dry eyes, caries, parotid gland enlargement and constipation. Reduced skin oil secretion also makes these patients more likely to be bothered by itching and desquamation.
Autumn is a traditional tonic season for Chinese people. Seafood and Laohuo soup are also high purine diets on the autumn fat table, which may push up blood uric acid and induce gout.
Rubbing hands is a good way to get up in the morning
Mo Yingqian suggested that health care should be done according to the susceptible diseases in autumn.
All kinds of arthritis patients should pay attention to add clothes to prevent cold and keep warm, especially the joint parts. Knee and wrist pads can be added to swollen and painful joints. At the same time, keep the room warm, dry and fresh air to avoid rain and cold.
For those with joint pain and stiffness, they can do hand rubbing exercise every morning. First, they rub their hands together, move their hands and fingers to relieve morning stiffness, and then try to move wrist joint, elbow joint, shoulder joint, etc. for flexion and extension.
At the same time, patients can participate in a variety of indoor and outdoor fitness activities, including walking, Taiji, radio gymnastics, etc., should not sit still; if in the relapse period, pay attention to rest, reduce the amount of activity.
For patients with Sjogrens syndrome, the time and frequency of bathing should be appropriately reduced to avoid the damage of skin oil layer. After bathing, mild skin care products can be used to keep skin moist and reduce desquamation. Diet, such patients should drink more water, try to avoid hot pepper, ginger garlic, pepper and other dry hot products, eat less fried food. Eat plenty of fresh fruits and vegetables rich in vitamins, such as pear, radish, lotus root, honey, etc.; gargle after meals to prevent tooth decay and oral infection. Work and rest, patients should pay attention to rest and keep warm. Tired, cold, long-term fatigue and lack of sleep will aggravate the disease, patients should moderately reduce work, relax mood, avoid emotional backlog. Patients with gout should control the mouth, which can effectively control purine intake and reduce the risk of disease. Source: Xinhua news agency editor in charge: Ma Yiyang_ NN9577
