I accidentally punched an iron door. It hurts me at the mcp joint from the fore finger. What measures shall I take to reduce the pain at home?
I am suffering from leg pain in my calf and back of knee when I walk. I do construction job. I do not understand whether it nerve or muscle. If I think it as nerve I am getting pain above knee and near hip also. It gradually changes side. Sometimes I do get left and sometimes right. But mostly on left. I have been with this for more than 1 month. I have consulted orthopedist, neurologist. They said it as normal and just a muscle strain and prescribed medicines. But no use. Some times I am getting as if it is sciatica that I can not keep complete weight on leg. There is no swelling. I do smoke also. I am suffering with cervical spondylosis since 2 years. I don't understand what is it but sometimes it os disturbing my works. Please kindly help me.
My brother just met an accident 2 days ago. He hit his elbow on the road. The next day he went to the hospital for the x ray they took it and said that it was a fracture. They put on a plaster (temporary) for some days and after that they will put the permanent plaster. He's uncertain of it because he has broken his elbow before which he had to do surgery to fix it. He is afraid if that's the same problem once again. He's got the x ray and I also need to show you that and tell me that what exactly it is. Since you are highly professional doctor I would like to know your views about the x ray and what has actually happened. Please tell me sir how can I send you the x ray? He lives in a different city and th3 doctors are not that good because the city is sort of a village. Please reply to me as soon as you can. Thank you.

Whether you're old or young, male or female, having a backache can be a real pain! A number of factors ranging from osteoarthritis to muscle strains can be attributed to back pains. No matter what the cause of a backache, a combination of core strengthening exercises, activity, and physical therapy can help lessen the pain.
A backache can be caused by something as simple as bending the wrong way. Hence, the first step towards dealing with a backache is to pay attention to daily movements. If you have to lift something heavy off the floor, bend your knees and let the weight of your load fall on your legs instead of it falling on your back. Here is more on how you can fight back pain with a bit of effort:
1. Light exercises
Simple, light exercises are the most effective ways of dealing with back pain. The key to exercising your back is moderation and knowing your limits.
2. Brisk walk and yoga
Regular brisk walks and yoga exercises that strengthen and stretch back muscles are effective ways to reduce and prevent back pain.
3. Right posture
Exercise can also help reduce excess weight that in turn helps reduce backaches. Slouching not only causes a hunch back but also aggravates back aches. Hence, maintain a right posture to take the pressure off nerves and lower back pain.
4. Proper posture while sleeping
A good night's sleep can also help soothe inflamed back joints and repair strained muscles. Pay attention to your mattress and ensure that your back is flat when you lie on it. Sleeping on your side can also help deal with the back pain. Consider resting your neck on a pillow, to keep your spine aligned while you sleep.
5. Hot & cold therapy
Experiment with hot and cold therapy before picking one of them to deal with your back pain. While applying ice packs on your back can help reduce inflammations, hot packs work better to reduce cramps and muscle spasms. Whether you use a hot pack or a cold pack, do not leave it on for more than 20 minutes.
6. Natural supplements
Natural supplements such as flaxseed oil, calcium, magnesium and Vitamin C are helpful when dealing with back pains.
For short-term relief, you could also try over the counter pain relievers. However, do not let this become a long-term habit, as your body could get dependent on it. Other potential side effects could include stomach and liver problems. Hence, if your backache does not subside on its own, it is best to consult a doctor before treating it yourself.
