Abstract: The worldwide Covid outbreak and the resulting lockdown has changed the human lifestyle to a greater extent. Post lockdown the OPDs started to flood with patients with various complaints. More complaints were from people who were in their late 40s, the elderly age group stuck at home without active treatments for their ailments.
The sample size taken for this case study was 28. It highlights the use of Trailokya Vijaya Vati in patients with multiple small joint pains and the insomnia associated with it.
The name multiple small joint pain is quite self-explanatory. In Ayurveda this condition is known as “Asthimajjagat Vata” and “Anidra” is insomnia is mentioned as one of its induced complications. It is a very complex diagnosis to cure as it alarms numerous underlying conditions in adults and the elderly. Patients often “get going” throughout the day and spend their nights tossing & turning in the bed as the pain takes over.
The treatment given to these patients is the same as Arthritis with high doses of Anti Inflammatory medications, anti-rheumatic drugs, and even steroids. The use of such higher medication leads to a lot of side effects that could be avoided by opting for Ayurveda treatment that gives promising results with minimal medicines.
A sample size of 28 was selected with the least age of 30 yrs. Both males and females were considered for the study. There were some individuals with co-morbidities. Some patients were taking allopathic treatment and decided to opt for Ayurveda whereas some were already taking Ayurveda treatment with some relief.
All patients had similar complaints of multiple small joint pains (some inflammatory and some degenerative) and insomnia secondary to pain.
