Sir, I am 25 years old and sometimes feels fatigue in my knees. Please advise.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist,
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your knee pain could be due to certain reasons but common ones are chondromalacia, pain due to knee instability, inflammation etc. If there is no history of any injury, and no s/s of inflammation or infection like swelling, skin redness or local warmth on touching, then I will like to advise you for conservative management initially in form of: - intensive physical therapy with focus on strengthening of quadriceps and stretching of other group of muscles - gentle anti inflammatory medications like tab etoshine or tab paracetamol can be taken in small doses for 5-7 days - adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation as per requirement - ice packs at home for 3-4 times in a day and see how it goes for around 2 weeks time. If your condition does not improve, then we will have to get certain investigations done. 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.

Sir, i am suffering from joint. Pains swelling, stiffness(fingers, palm, knees and foot) since after chigungunya, at present I am taking treatment from orthopedic Dr. Aravindam from rajahmundry, he suggested tab. Sazo-500 mg, sorez along with some multivitamin tables( since one month) but no response, my uric acid is 5. 8 mg/dil. Every thing is alright, you suggest me better treatment for relief . Regards

Joint pains and swelling persist for about 1-2 years post viral infections like chikunguniya. There is no specific medicine for it. So rely more on exercises to prevent joint stiffness. Good news is it is self-remitting and will cure itself.

I got lateral minucus tear in july 2011 while playing football. I underwent arthroscopic surgery in my left knee in September 2013. Before surgery, mri report said lateral miniscus tear with cyst in my left knee. After surgery in manipal hospital Bangalore, my life became hell and I faced knee pain, stiffness, bike riding knee pain, could not stand for 30 min continously, could not use indian toilet, prolong sitting impossible on chair etc etc. None of these problems I had before surgery. Before surgery Dr. Claimed that I can play football within 6 months. After 6 months of surgery that is on apr 2014 I did mri which said no fresh tear with cmp condromalecia patella level 1 and ra blood test negative with vitamin d correction needed. I lost all hope with my surgeon and believed that only for money he did surgery to me and ruined my life. I had tendocare medicine from september 14 till apr 15 and simultaneously homeopathy. Now my condition is better as compared to aug 14 case. I believe it's cos of homeopathy medicine. Past one month I m doing isometric knee strengthen exercise including vmo at home. These physiotherapy I did post surgery for 3_4 months but as pain was still there so I stopped these strengthen exercise but I re started them last month as my injured knee thickness is half of my correct right leg. My condition is better now say 5/10 but prolong sitting in office or rainy season cold increases pain n stiffness. I feel burning sensation, stiffness, not able to bend knee fully, pain around knee cap, can't walk for say 30 mins without pain, uneasiness and pain at the bottom of knee cap. Now my only remedy is to apply knee pain killer oil and exercise and take homeopathy medicine. I wonder if I can be equally fit as I was before surgery. I doubt if surgery was needed for me at first place but that was already done 1 yr 8 months back. I request a orthopaedic doctor to advise me as in what is my knee problem and how I can get rid of it Thank you.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. As you had lateral meniscus tear with a cyst, if you had symptoms correlating with your mri findings, then there is a valid reason for arthroscopic knee surgery which was done in your case to excise the cyst and balance the meniscus. Also fresh mri revealed no tears in your knee structures, so I think the surgery was well done and your mensicus was balanced well. So there is no need to crib about it at all. I think what you lacked was a scientific approach to post operative rehabilitation which is poorly understood in our country. Anyway now you have improved and your symptoms are due to chondromalacia of knee, atleast that is what you have written. Again for this physical therapy is mainstay of treatment with strengthening of quadriceps, stretching of other group muscles - adequate calcium and vitamin d intake - daily brisk walks for 2-3 km per day in morning - you should actually avoid indian toilet, sitting cross legged till the time you have pain. - you can use a gentle anti inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or one which suits you on a sos basis for some time. Let me know in 2-3 weeks time how you are feeling, so that we can discuss and take your case forwards. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I am having knee problem. My left knee pains a lot. I am scared it will lead to a big problem. How to reduce this pain?
Advice. 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. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Advice - lentils and soyabean for protein intake, and my advice eat Indian food avoid western food, drink plenty of water, eat local fruits and vegetables. Use ghee and mustard oil in place of refined oil or olive oil etc. All are temporary treatment as per provided information, for permanent cure we need detail history and investigations. Homeopathy is best, safe and effective. We treated every day 2-3 patients of this type of problem with no side effects, no worries our 94% success rates makes sure we're the complete package.

Dear Doctor, I am 73 years old (DOB 30/03/1941) male. Recently, I developed pain in my Right Knee. I went to the Orthopaedic Surgeon who had carried our orthoscopic about twenty two years ago. He had the removed bits of cartilage and since then I had no problem. This time he saw my X-rays (copy attached) and said that I needed replacement surgery ? first to the right knee and then to the left knee. On request he prescribed Tab Nucoxia 90 and Vitamin E 400mg. I am diabetic (2) and have high blood pressure, both under control with medication. A pacemaker was implanted on 01/06/2012. It is working fine as per my last check up on 03/11/2014 (next check-up due on 3/5/2013). I am having following medicines ? Tab NatrilAm, Tablet Telma (80), Ecosprin (75), Urimax (0.04), Metosartan (1000) BD, Trajenta (5), Amaryl (2), vitamins and calcium). My request is to advise:- 1. Is there an alternative to surgery? Is Joint replacement surgery a must? 2. Is Tab Nucoxia 90 safe with the medicines I am taking, and how long should I continue?

Everyday Back Pain Causes.

It's worth knowing that you will eventually complain of back ache if you are not already whining.

It is primarily because most of us indulge in some everyday activities that are detrimental to our spine health. The good news here is that these reasons can be easily fixed. All you need is some spine tuning. Here's how:

Desk job
Are you sitting too much on your seat? Recent studies have suggested that sitting for longer hours makes you prone to various illnesses. So it is highly recommended that you stand and walk a bit every two hours or so and also engage in some static stretching exercises. If not, take a 30 minutes stroll after your lunch time.

Sleeping on your stomach
Do you have a habit of snoozing on your tummy? It's a clear give away for your back problems as it puts unnecessary pressure on your spine. When you sleep on your side or back, your spine is elongated and neutral. Also, don't use a thick pillow. The perfect-sized pillow should keep your head in line with the spine. This is not it. Your mattress should not be too hard or soft.

Not exercising your core
According to yogacharya, Shelly Khera, a strong core helps us stand difficult situations both physically and mentally. It is where all our energies are housed. And even fitness instructors in the gym have caught fancy to the word 'core, but for all the right reasons - core exercises strengthen your spine.

High heels, bulky bags
Some fashion choices that you make may be harming your back, especially high heels and heavy bags. Not only women, there are men who carry heavy laptop bags on one shoulder, which is a major cause of health issues. What's the fix? If you stand and walk a lot, do not wear heels above 2 inches and the handbag should be less than 10 pounds.

I am suffering from severe leg pain from last few weeks can you suggest what to do.
Keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Requires detailed investigation and examination hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid vit d xray of the affected part. Anyway you may try sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head do hot fomentation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform.
