Symptoms of Adult Still's Disease


The exact cause underlying the condition of adult still’s disease is not known yet. It is seen to affect females more than males. It is seen in adults of any age but more commonly observed in the age group of twenty to thirty five years. The genetic composition can also play a major role in making the individual more prone to this condition. The environmental factors may trigger the condition in the persons already prone to it. This will present a variety of symptoms which will be discussed in the following article.


The people suffering from the adult still’s disease often present various types of pain in the body. They are fatigued by the severe joint pains. He/ she may be suffering from fever, a sore throat, etc. The patients suffering from adult still’s disease often complain of a salmon pink rash that appears and disappears quickly. This type of pink rash is commonly seen on the torso, arms or the legs. Not every patient presents the same symptoms, it will vary from person to person. So to manage the condition properly, it is required to first diagnose the condition, which will be described as follows.


It can be a bit difficult to diagnose the condition of adult still’s disease because the presenting features such as fever, joint pain, etc. can be confused with different diseases. There is no specific diagnostic test known for the adult still’s disease. To diagnose this condition, detailed medical history, physical examination, and blood tests will be required. It is also essential to rule out other types of infections while making a confirmatory diagnosis. As soon as the condition is diagnosed proper medical attention should be provided. The main line of treatment will include the administration of various oral medicines to manage adult still’s disease. These oral medicines will include NSAIDs (Non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs), DMARDs (Disease modifying anti rheumatic drugs), steroids, etc. The ayurveda presents a different perspective regarding the adult still’s disease, which will be described as follows.


The condition of adult still’s disease can be correlated to the excessive vitiation of the vata dosha in the body. The ayurveda very well describes the interdependence of vata, pitta and kapha through the concept of ashraya ashrayi bhava. The various elements of the body work in unison to maintain the healthy state of the body. Hence, imbalance of one element will lead to the imbalance of another related element of the body. Similar relation is seen between the vata and the asthi dhatu (Asthi can be correlated to the bony structures in the body). Vata is said to be responsible for all the types of pains in the body. The correlation between vata and asthi is inversely proportional. This phenomenon, when described in detail, yields a conclusion that as the vata level rises in the body, it will deplete the condition of asthi dhatu or the bones and joints. So, to manage the condition of adult still’s disease effectively, a number of ayurvedic formulations are required to balance the vata back into its normal levels. These ayurvedic formulations will be described as follows.
