Recently I am having backache after lifting and carrying around my twin grandsons at home for a while. I thought that once I carry them about regularly my back muscles will get used to the weight and backache will fade away. But the pain in the back is persisting. Do I stop carrying them or take some pill to cure completely?

Consult an orthopaedic doctor. Usually avoiding lifting,too much of elbow use is avoided .a splint may be used to keep elbow straight.avoid pressure on elbow on desktop . Spontaneous nerve healing occurs in few weeks or even 2 to 3 months,if not decompression of ulnar nerve at elbow is done. Tingling in ring and little finger may last long,physiotherapy exercises help. Electrophysiological study is sometimes advisable for knowing severity of conduction defects and earlier transposition nerve surgery.if improving, may wait and watch. Take methycobalamin if advised by your doctor

Emotional Distress and Back pain
Back pain is one of the problems most often viewed by a physiotherapist.
In fact, four out of five person will have an back pain sometime during their life.
As luck would have it, the majority of patients with back pain gets relief and return to their normal life.
Only some people have longer episodes of back pain. When there is a suffering, It is quite normal to experience emotional reactions to  back pain. These responses can include fear, anxiety and worry  about what the pain means and what harms body have , how long it will last pain  and how much it affects daily life. In fact, pain is a complex experience that includes both physical and psychological elements.
Frequently back pain is also interrelated to a number of factors.
All of these recommendations are designed to cut the emotional concerns and stress most patients experience with pain. Anxiousness about pain and hurt can actually increase your feelings  of pain and decrease  your pain tolerance .

Thither is a cycle between our pain and thought process, as more pain perceived by our body more will it leads to distress, so then it becomes a cycle of more pain and more stress to our body.

Psychological problems about back pain leads to sleeplessness, irritability, and loss of interest in past habits.Sometimes pain increased up to a point that you want to get rid of it any cost.

In order to control psychological  disturbance , it is important to questions about your back pain from your physiotherapist  so you do not leave uncertain or distressed . To know about your pain will help lessen your anxiety.

During the early period, feelings of helplessness, aggression occur. In order to overcome this stress, you need to be sure that your physiotherapy  is attentive to all of your physiological and psychological problems .

You and your physiotherapist  have to do the following:

You can report your pain level and type of pain to your physiotherapist that it helps to make a correct diagnosis.

Be sure your physiotherapist help you in getting away your fears with special assessment concerned to your activities ,lifestyle and age.He also informs you about your condition and make appropriate tests to rule out any serious problem.

Be sure about your physiotherapist that what he is looking for and what is he excluding in making a diagnosis.

Your physiotherapist advises on your activity level and do and don't of specific activities will limit the progression of disease and help in positive outcomes.

The information you receive about your disease from your  disease about the cause of disease and amount of time it will take to come back also affects your pain and anxiety level, and if patients have more positive feelings about their illness than there is a more chance to enough and speedy recovery.

, go for ayurveda's panchkarma therapy - we have many option for you - kati basti (specialised panchakarma procedure for backpains), localised massgae with herbal oils, localised medicated steam, pottali massage. Continue these procedures for atleast 15 days. Regular oiling of the joint will improve the lubrication also. These procedures will relax your back muscles and give strength to your nerves and muscles of back. Also start some yogic exercises - tadasana, dhanurasan, halasana along with these therapies. This will greatly help. Please avoid pushing / pulling heavy objects, long sittings, long two-wheeler drives. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking.

My feet has heated so badly, in every 5 minute I have put cold  water for relief.
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. These symptoms are called as paresthesias and usually are due to involvement of a nerve somewhere along the course from the lower back (spine) region to leg, or rarely these kind of symptoms can be due to vascular involvement. So in brief I would like you to be examined by a neurophysician especially if there is no previous h/o lower back pain etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Glynase usually works during the first few years & then starts failing. You should consider starting gliptins along with metformin.

I have serious anxiety issues and my heart rate is 90-100 normally. And I can't tolerate heat due to which I sweat much more. For the past 3-4 months I am not able to sleep well. I wake up after every 2-3 hours and it's hard for me to sleep no matter how tired I am. I have done Vitamin B12 test and thyroid tests. Vitamin B12 is 121 pg/ml which is well below normal range. And my T3 and T4 are in normal range but my TSH is 6.3 mCu/ml. The symptoms are of hyperthyroidism but that's not the case I am assuming. My physique is very good and I don't have fatigue or muscle weakness. I do have 2 head injuries on my forehead since I was 12-13 years and I think these injuries have affected my brain chemistry making me more anxious and that's how all these other symptoms came. What could be the case? What can I do about it?

MBBS
General Physician,
your heart is increased (tachycardia) may be due to stress ,strain, anxiety neurosis. which is a temporary in nature it seems you are basically a worried type of personality you have to change your personality and lifestyle. have regular balanced diet with lots of leafy vegetables, cereals, fruits have lean meat like chicken instead of red meat if you drink alcohol drink it in moderation. go for regular morning walk followed by free hand exercises. things will change have lots of water by mouth..
