Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Hi take rest, apply ice, you can visit orthopaedic doctor for proper diagnosis. Doctor may give you antiinflammation medication, and/or cortisone injection. Cortisone injection is extremely effective and is generally the optimal treatment.

I am ana positive. Fingers goes yellow then purple in winter. Swear pain in both under arms to shoulder. Burns and pain in nails.Please do help in this regard.

BHMS
General Physician,
It is raynaud's phenomenon and it occurs when the extremities of the body, usually the fingers and toes, change colour and may become painful. It is due to a narrowing (constriction) of the small blood vessels on exposure to the cold, or to a change in temperature, or to emotional stress. In most cases, the cause is not known. In some cases, it is a symptom of an underlying condition such as scleroderma, lupus, or rheumatoid arthritis. The main treatment is to keep warm. Medicines to open up the blood vessels are used in some cases.

My nose always blocked. Sometimes I feel my sensation was stop and whole body were pain. Specially back pain.
For nose block check if you are having nasal polyps - if so it will take sometime to get complete relief. You take ammon carb 30 - thrice daily for next 7 days and get back to me for further treatment. Also check if you are having any fever. Take mag phos 6x - twice daily for back pain.

I have back pain from last 2 month. It happens when I sit for long time or bend it for long time. What can I do for that ?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Sign and Symptoms of Slipped Disc

MD - Ayurveda
Ayurveda, Jaipur
Sign and Symptoms of Slipped Disc

When do you know that one of your discs from the spine has been slipped off from its original position? Here are some conditions and cases, as per our knowledge and these are different from low back and neck. First let’s talk about the neck; it’s more upper and closer to the brain!

Giddiness, Pain travelling in the arms, pain and tenderness in the cardiac region of chest and certainly you can have numbness and tingling sensations in your hands- all this is not about any of the heart problems, always! These are the most common signs and symptoms of the cervical disc compression and in most the cases patients reached to us with some complaints of cardiac problems in all such cases.

Besides this, other patients start feeling that they have something in their brain and they would have gone for MRI or CAT SCAN of Brain for the same condition because of severe headache and giddiness with some nausea along with these!

Why does the pain reflect on the different locations?

When the disc compresses any segment of the spinal cord or one of the nerves emerging from the part, the nerve will carry the sensation, without any external trigger for the pain or burning sensation in the area, supplied by that part of the spine or corresponding nerves. Certainly, if nerves are tingling these will affect the muscles for sure, supplied by the same nerves.

When this condition appears in neck, it will affect the parts supplied by the cervical nerves which emerge from between – C1-C2/ C2-C3/ C4-C4/ C4-C5/ C5-C6/C6-C7/C7-C8 or C8-T1 vertebral bodies. These nerves from cervical region supplies to the muscles of head, upper back, arms, neck itself, chest region and sides of the chest. So wherever the supply goes, pain appears in the corresponding regions.

Same is the story of the lower back well known as Lumbar Region or Lumbo-sacral region of the spine. Nerves emerging from the lumbar region, supply to the lower limbs up to the toe, lower back and

The symptoms of a herniated disc: symptoms will be according to the location. The mostly affected areas are cervical region (neck); and lumber region (lower back).

When it is in neck region the symptoms will be as follows:

  • Pain which may radiate in arms.
  • Numbness/ tingling sensation in arms
  • Stiffness in neck
  • Difficulty in neck movements
  • Headache and giddiness, specially, while rising from bed

Symptoms of herniated disc in lower back are:

  • Pain in lower back which radiates into one or both legs
  • Numbness or tingling or sensation of in areas of one or both legs
  • Stiffness in lower back
  • Pain increases if fellow remains in same posture for long time period.
  • Muscle weakness or wasting of muscle mass in certain muscles of one or both legs
  • Loss of the reflexes in one or both legs

Depending on the nerve affected by the herniated disc the location of above said symptoms will differ and not surprisingly, both the areas of the spine might be effected at a single time, because vertebral column is a unit, certainly it will behave like a unit. If you wish to discuss any specific problem, you can consult an ayurveda.

Hope you are not having heel pain. Identify the points on either side between the ankle bone and tendons. Give acupressure with a blunt edge of a pen on both sides 20 times at a time after getting from bed. Rotate the feet 10 times clockwise and anticlockwise. Pl check whether you are having correct body weight. Otherwise reduce overweight. Report to me progess after 5 days for further advice.

Dear Akash sitting continuous at one place and improper posture of sitting causes more back pain, you need to take a break for 10min for every hour. if possible use cushion on chair, avoid bending forward and sitting for prolonged time. apply diclofenac ointment with heat therapy for faster relief from pain. continue for a week, if possible do back strengthening excercises in the morning.

Hello. Sorry to hear this. Ask her to meet a physiotherapist who will suggest back and core strengthening exercises for her. She should not sit continuously for more than 30 min and should get up and move around for 1 min after every 30 min. Regards.
