Few things related to headache so that we can plan the treatment accordingly - if pain is associated with blurred or decreased vision than check your eye sight for refractive error - if the pain is associated with cold and fever than we have to rule out sinusitis as the cause and if the pain is pulsatile in nature and with a throbbing pain usually with an aura than we have to rule out migrane as the cause - if the pain is associated with neck problems than we have to rule out cervical spondylosis as the cause - if the pain is associated with either low or high bp or due to hyperacidity than we have to treat the cause after examination.

From the last 4-5 days, I have pain in my right hand. The irritating pain when someone has arthritis or osteoporosis. Also, I feel the pain in my legs and the other hand sometimes. But my right hand is worse. I don't always feel this pain, just sometimes. But this is the first time it stayed for so long. Also, can I cure this with nutrition? I don't want to go for medicines.

All About Lower Back Pain!

Lower back pain? Degeneration of the spine? Lumbar disc problems? Joint pain? Body aches?

For all of the above, the one common solution is popping a calcium or D3 supplement. It’s true though, a deficiency of these vitamins can cause all of the above, but there are many ways of looking at this. You can be popping the best brand of supplements, but remember, it just does not work that way. For calcium to get absorbed into the bones, your D3 levels have to be adequate. If it’s not, your calcium supplement that is being wasted, so are the foods rich in calcium that you are consuming. Furthermore, Vitamin K is such an ignored vitamin, but you should know, Vitamin K is needed for the bones to absorb Calcium. Vitamin K is found in dairy products and green leafy veggies. 

So here’s how it works. For strong and healthy bones, joints and a super strong spine, you need sufficient calcium, D3 and Vitamin K for it to work effectively. I should add in B12 as B12 is necessary for healthy bone marrow, and for the body and spine to grow strong and healthy. Calcium, Vitamin K, Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D3A balanced diet should give you all of that.

  • Apart from nutrition, have a look at the points below: 
  • Regular and smart exercise, stretching, warm up and cool downs.
  •  Knowing your tiger muscles and working on flexibility.
  •  DO NOT SIT IN ONE PLACE FOR MORE THAN 30-45 MINUTES.
  • This is too much strain and stress on your lower back/sacrum and it leads to lower back, sciatica and lower body aches and pains.
  • Look for nutrition in fresh and real foods. Supplement only if you have to and if you have a deficiency. 
  • The choice of preventing or healing yourself from pains as such, is all up to you.

Chronic Pain

MBBS, MD - Anaesthesiology, DNB Anaesthesiology, PDCC - Pain Management
Pain Management Specialist, Mumbai

Hi, I am Dr Siddharth Sharma. I am an interventional pain specialist and I treat patients who are suffering from chronic pain.

Chronic pain as you know is any kind of pain which is more than 3 months of duration or 12 weeks of duration. I am often asked about back pain and its surgical treatment. Patients come to me who has been advised open surgery and they want to avoid it and they ask me whether we can avoid it or not. So yes we can avoid the surgery almost in 90% of cases but there are certain conditions where surgery must be done and these are medical emergencies. However, in the majority of cases, we are able to prevent the surgery from happening that is patient is relieved without surgery so if you have been advised any surgery from your back pain which is you are very concerned and you don't want to get operated so please seek an opinion from pain management specialist.

So what the pain management consultant will do he will just try to find it where the pain is coming from and treat you accordingly. So our back is the structure which is made up of bones known as vertebrates and muscles and there a small nerves which are coming out of the spinal cord. Now I will show you a model so this is how the lower back looks like you can see the Bone part. So this model shows the Bony part of the human lower back. So if you see these are small bones which are forming this back and you can very well see her probably that this yellow portion is nerves which are coming out of the spinal canal and these nerves if they are compressed, leads to pain and this pain may go to distribution area of nerves which may be back, lower back, hips, leg, calves or even toes and this may also lead to symptoms like tingling numbness and likewise. So the back pain has always been a puzzle for doctors and to relieve the patient from the symptoms doctor they started dissecting and seeing why this pain is actually happening and since the possible causes are compression of these nerves it was thought that if we somehow release that pressure then probably the pain will be relieved. So the surgery started happening and the purpose of surgery is to decompress nerves to take the pressure of these nerves and relieve the patient possibly from his or her pain. However, this surgery necessitated cutting and going through the back muscles and then readjusting the bones and then retracting and itself cause so much of trauma that post surgery patient started having other symptoms as well. So probably that level may be a little better but maybe on other side or maybe on one level up one Level down problem started happening. Similar thing started happening with screws fixation and so.

Therefore the results if you see the data the results are not very encouraging that's why probably there is fear of surgery in the patient because they have seen their relatives or maybe there known people that are suffering from back pain undergoing some surgery and they recovered somewhat but probably there just started with some other problem or maybe the same number of problem started with and number of days whatever. For non-surgical treatment there are variety of treatments available nowadays there are interventional pain physician or pain specialist that can provide you with advanced option which are Minimal invasive which cause minimum damage to your body to the back to muscles because they are not involved when you're cutting or any suturing or anaesthesia so it is very advanced procedure and give very good pain relief in majority of patients. However, the indications are very clear cut and we cannot do these procedures in each and every patient so it's better if you consult an interventional pain physician and he will see evaluate and tell you that whether you are suited for the procedure or not. To name this procedure there can be as simple as simple epidural injections in which we inject a steroid. At once I tell the name steroid people start thinking that it will be harmful to the body but it will not be the case because this is a very small dose of steroid which is directly directed near the route so that the inflammation subsides and there is relief from the pain.

Also the another method is to decompress the nerve with the help of percutaneous procedures. Percutaneous means the patient is awake under the local anaesthesia while these procedures are done we reach this panel at the intervertebral disc base with the help of the needle then we can take it out take the disc out and we can with the help of radio frequency current we can seal the region actually. And this will result in decompression of the nerve and relief from the symptom. However, the indications are very clear cut and you need to go to your interventional pain consultant. He will see if you are fit for those procedures and guide you for these procedures. Another important thing that is common is to post surgery pain. So if you have gone any back surgery and you still having pain then you must visit your interventional pain physician you must go to him and he will check and try and find out the possible cause for pain. It is also possible that before surgery you have a different kind of pain, after surgery you have a different kind of pain then your physician will often be able to diagnose and give a diagnostic procedure if required or maybe give you a curative procedure as required. So this was about the back pain.

I am 25 years old. I have back pain due to long bike drives every day. What should I do?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned backache as your problem. If you have only localized backache with no other associated symptoms like radiating leg pain, numbness, paresthesias etc, and no systemic symptoms like fever, loss of appetite, loss of weight etc, my advice to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or even tab paracetamol which suits you - intensive 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 3-4 times in a day - analgesic spray for local application like dynapar qps spray can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc if you do not improve in 2-3 weeks with this conservative management, we will need to evaluate you further in form of dynamic x rays to look for any instability as a cause for pain and some blood investigations to rule out any deficiencies etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

Take care.

Knee pain is a very common medical condition that occurs due to constant wear and tear of the knee joint. It can be experienced by older adults, young adults and children. Women are more vulnerable to knee pain than men. The exact location of the knee pain can vary. Pain can originate in any of the bony structures compromising the knee joint (femur, tibia and fibula), the kneecap (patella) or the ligaments and cartilage (meniscus). Knee pain can be localized or diffuse throughout the knee. Home remedies for knee pain. Applying cold compresses to the painful knee is one of the best and easiest ways to reduce pain and swelling. The cold will constrict the blood vessels, reducing blood flow to the affected area and thus reducing swelling. It will also give you relief from the pain. Wrap a handful of ice cubes in a thin towel. Apply the compress to the affected knee area for 10 to 20 minutes. Do this two or three times daily until your pain is gone. A bag of frozen peas also works well as a cold compress. You can opt for alternating hot and cold compresses as well for chronic pains. Mix two teaspoons of apple cider vinegar in two cups of filtered water. Sip this mixture throughout the day. Drink this tonic daily until you recover completely. You can also add two cups of apple cider vinegar to a bath tub of hot water. Soak the affected knee in the water for 30 minutes. Do this once daily for a few days. Also, you can mix together one tablespoon each of apple cider vinegar and olive oil. Use it to massage the affected knee once or twice daily until the pain is gone. Crush a small piece of fresh ginger root, add to one cup of water and boil it for 10 minutes. Strain and add a little honey and lemon juice. Drink two to three cups of this ginger tea daily until the pain is gone. You can also massage the affected knee with ginger oil two or three times a day until you are satisfied with the results Add one-half teaspoon each of ground ginger and turmeric to a cup of water and boil it for 10 minutes. Strain, add honey to taste, and enjoy twice daily. Boil one teaspoon of turmeric powder in a glass of milk. Sweeten with honey and drink it once daily. Another option is to take 250 to 500 mg turmeric capsules three times daily. Follow these remedies daily until the pain is gone completely.
