Piles are quite painful and irritating. The major symptoms of piles or hemorrhoids are blood in stool, severe pain while passing stool, inflammation, pain around the anus, and constipation.

Most of us have a neck pain in their lives.It is a common problem many of us felt it.

Neck pain, although felt in the neck, can be caused by numerous other spinal problems.
Neck pain may arise due to muscular tightness in both the he neck and upper back, or pinching of the nerves emanating from the cervical vertebrae.

This usually means working with a few home exercises to help compliment your sessions with the physiotherapist. By the time your sessions have come to an end you should feel, if not pain free already, that you are able to manage your condition while working towards a sustainable pain.


Neck Pain can often be associated with neck stiffness, pins and needles in the arm, shoulder stiffness and related pain in the shoulder blade, head, arm, wrist and hand. It can be caused by a sprained ligament, pressure on a disc or a muscle strain or spasm. It can often be a result of poor postural habits at work, whiplash post road traffic accident, strains while playing sports or stress related incidents in one?s life.

All of our Physios have training in the assessment and diagnosis of musculoskeletal injuries. They employ the most advanced techniques and their results are sometimes instantaneous.

Vitamin E

Dietitian/Nutritionist, Mumbai

Vitamin e

Vitamin e is key for strong immunity and healthy skin and eyes. In recent years, vitamin e supplements have become popular as antioxidants. These are substances that protect cells from damage. However, the risks and benefits of taking vitamin e supplements are still unclear.

Why do people take vitamin e:
Many people use vitamin e supplements in the hopes that the vitamin's antioxidant properties will prevent or treat disease. But studies of vitamin e for preventing cancer, heart disease, diabetes, Alzheimer's disease, cataracts, and many other conditions have been inconclusive.

So far, the only established benefits of vitamin e supplements are in people who have an actual deficiency. Vitamin e deficiencies are rare. They're more likely to people who have diseases, such as digestive problems and cystic fibrosis. People on very low-fat diets may also have low levels of vitamin e.

The recommended dietary allowance (rda) includes the vitamin e you get from both the food you eat and any supplements you take.


Vitamin e (alpha-tocopherol): recommended dietary allowance (rda)
In milligrams (mg) and international units (iu)


1-3 years

6 mg/day (9 iu)

4-8 years

7 mg/day (10.4 iu)

9-13 years

11 mg/day (16.4 iu)


14 years and up

15 mg/day (22.4 iu)


15 mg/day (22.4 iu)


19 mg/day (28.5 iu)


14 years and up

15 mg/day (22.4 iu)

The tolerable upper intake levels of a supplement are the highest amount that most people can take safely. Higher doses might be used to treat vitamin e deficiencies. But you should never take more unless a doctor says so.

(children & adults)

Tolerable upper intake levels (ul) of
Vitamin e (alpha-tocopherol)
In milligrams (mg) and international units (iu)

1-3 years

200 mg/day (300 iu)

4-8 years

300 mg/day (450 iu)

9-13 years

600 mg/day (900 iu)

14-18 years

800 mg/day (1, 200 iu)

19 years and up

1, 000 mg/day (1, 500 iu)

 Good sources of vitamin e include:
Vegetable oils
Green leafy vegetables, like spinach
Fortified cereals and other foods

Risks of taking vitamin e:

The risks and benefits of taking vitamin e are still unclear. Long-term use (over 10 years) of vitamin e has been linked to an increase in stroke.

In addition, an analysis of clinical trials found patients who took either synthetic vitamin e or natural vitamin e in doses of 400 iu per day -- or higher -- had an increased risk of dying from all causes, which seems to increase even more at higher doses. Cardiovascular studies also suggest that patients with diabetes or cardiovascular disease who take natural vitamin e at 400 iu per day have an increased risk of heart failure and heart failure-related hospitalization.

Vitamin e supplements might be harmful when taken in early pregnancy. One study found that women who took vitamin e supplementation during the first 8 weeks of pregnancy had a 1.7 to nine-fold increase in congenital heart defects. The exact amount of vitamin e supplements used by pregnant women in this study is unknown.

A large population study showed that men using a multivitamin more than seven times per week in conjunction with a separate vitamin e supplement actually had a significantly increased risk of developing prostate cancer.

Ayurveda, Udupi
Everyday in the morning when I wake up my stomach pains and I feel like vomiting.
Stomach pain has various reason. Simple reasons are gastritis, indigestion. Reason may be diet and daily life style. Changing the diet and life style are most important. Type and location of pain can say the cause of pain or it can even give the diagnosis. Avoid spicy diet, irregular consumption of food, alcohol, smoking. Start with simple daily regimen like drinking 1-2glass of water early in morning in empty stomach. It helps in proper digestion.

What fruits we can eat when the diabetes level is 135 -140 .

Fruits are not avoided for a diabetic if they are planned well in your diet. Also what is more important is the distribution of the carbohydrates throughout the day. Try to have local and seasonal fruits and not with main meals and in moderate amounts.

Dear lybrate-user, probably you are suffering from hiv disease phobia. Reassurance alone may not work, I think. Still it is better to try it once. If you are under tension disturbing your day-to-day activities, you need to consult me privately online. Disease phobia can be treated with cognitive therapy or desensitization over many sessions. Hiv virus does not pass through intact skin. Since none of her fluid entered, you have no risk of getting hiv. Touching with fingers can not get hiv unless you have a open wound or ulcer on that finger. However, please carry a thick condom with you as a routine. Carrying a condom does not make you bad. You are a normally grown man with full testosterone secretion. You would not have got married for other sociocultural reasons. It is better to be safe than sorry.
