With just word we cannot suggest treatment. This requires differential diagnosis. As of my opinion I believe everything initiates from muscles. Try to consult a therapist who can diagnose you correctly instead of classifying all the pain or symptoms as sciatica. You might have some issues or tightness with piriformis muscles as well which will also mimic the same symptoms as sciatica. Get in touch with an expert soon.

Experiencing pain in and around the waist area extending upto the thigh and calf muscles.

BHMS
Homeopath, Chennai
Experiencing pain in and around the waist area extending upto the thigh and calf muscles.
Injuries inflicted to the upper hip or waist area can cause pain and are possible symptoms of a dislocation or fracture of the hip, an inguinal hernia, a sprain or strain, pinched nerves, or tendinitis. Patients with a herniated disk, spinal stenosis, types of bone cancer and leukemia may also experience pain in the waist and upper hip area. Forms of arthritis, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis and juvenile rheumatoid arthritis situated near the waist and upper hip, can be a common culprit of discomfort. Pain that stems from the abdominal or waist region and travels to the hip area could be caused by minor digestive problems or pulled muscles. In more severe cases, this pain could be a symptom of appendicitis, irritable bowel syndrome, lead poisoning, intestinal obstruction, Crohn's disease, pelvic inflammatory disease or sickle cell anemia. High levels of ketones in the blood could also contribute to upper hip or waist area pain.

All About Knee Pain

Knee pain is something that can affect anyone - irrespective of their age. While sometimes it may be of minor importance - and can easily be handled by self-care, often, lingering pain is a manifestation of some other serious underlying problem, such as arthritis. In this case, it is imperative that you consult a doctor and take appropriate measures to combat it.

Causes :

Arthritis: The chief cause of lingering knee pain, arthritis itself can be of a number of types:

  • Osteoarthritis, which is a result of deterioration of cartilages due to wear and tear
  • Rheumatoid Arthritis, an inflammatory chronic disorder
  • Septic Arthritis, causing pain, swelling and redness.
  • Gout caused due to the development of uric acid crystals in the joints

Fractures: These are caused by the breaking up of the kneecap due to falls or collisions.
ACL Injuries: Caused due to the tearing of the anterior cruciate ligament (that connects the femur and the shinbone). Especially common in sportspersons such as footballers or basketball players.
Meniscus tears: The meniscus or the rubber-like cartilage (that acts as a shock absorber) can be torn by sudden jerks or excess pressure.

Symptoms:The major symptoms of knee pain include weakness, redness, instability, stiffness or the inability to properly straighten or move the leg. Often, a deformity is also visible, such as a bone sticking out of the leg - in which case it is advisable to consult a doctor immediately.

  • Possible risks: Factors which include the odds of being inflicted by knee pain and cause serious complications include :
  • Being overweight: This exponentially increases the stress or pressure that is applied on the knee joints - even in doing mundane tasks like walking up and down stairs.
  • Excessive physical activity: Some activities, such as sports apply excess stress on the knees as compared to other tasks.
  • Loss of muscle flexibility: Tightness or weakness in muscles causes increasing number of problems in the knees.

I am 65 years old. For the last 3 days I am suffering from knee pain. What is the remedial medicines I should take. This pain is for the first time. I undertake morning walk daily for one and half hours and cover about 7 kilometres. Due to development of this knee pain I am afraid of going for morning walk.

Hi thanks for your query. It' s only since last 3 days that you are having pain, it usually is due to inflammatory episode in knee degeneration which may lead to all this. But it is advisable to get a knee x ray to see how it looks like? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

All About Hip Osteoarthritis

When joints get inflamed, it is known as arthritis. This causes swelling and pain in the joints of your body such as the hips and the knees. When the cartilage gets damaged at the ends of bones, a type of arthritis called osteoarthritis occurs.

There are two main types of osteoarthritis:

  1. Primary: This type is more generalized. It affects the knees, fingers, hips, spine and thumb.
  2. Secondary: This type can occur after injury or joint inflammation, or as a result of any disease that affects the ligament's composition, like hemochromatosis.

How is the hip affected by osteoarthritis?
Patients have difficulties walking if they have hip osteoarthritis. Diagnosing hip osteoarthritis is difficult. It is because the pain appears in varied locations, such as the groin, buttocks, knee or thigh. The pain can be a dull throb or can be sharp and stabbing. The hip is usually stiff.

What are the causes of hip osteoarthritis?
The causes of hip osteoarthritis are unknown. However, the factors that can lead to osteoarthritis are joint injury, excessive weight and rising age.
Along with the abovementioned factors, the following may contribute as well:

  1. The joints may not have developed accurately
  2. The cartilage may have inherited the defects
  3. If the joints are too irritated due to added pressure on them, like excess body weight or stressful activities that include hip movement, osteoarthritis may develop.

What are the symptoms of hip osteoarthritis?
The symptoms of hip osteoarthritis are as follows:

  1. Joints feel stiff when you get out of bed
  2. Joints feel stiff if you have been sitting for some time
  3. The joints feel painful, swollen or tender
  4. You can hear (a "crunching" sound) or feel the bones rubbing against each other.
  5. You find yourself unable to do certain things, like putting on socks, as it requires your hips to move.

How is hip osteoarthritis treated?
The main objective of treatment is to restore the patient's ability to move around. A part of this objective includes correcting the function of the hip and managing the pain. The treatment can include:

  1. Joint care and rest
  2. To take weight off the area affected, a cane is used
  3. Pain relief that does not involve drugs
  4. Shedding excess weight
  5. Exercising
  6. Surgery
  7. Alternative and complementary therapies

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).

This looks to be a cyst over the ankle area which might have come from the skin itself or from the joint. You may apply local ice cold sponging and show it to your local family doctor to decide course of action.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned rheumatoid arthritis as a condition you are suffering from. It is a chronic inflammatory joint disease which has a genetic predisposition. Since this is a genetically linked disease hence as of now there is no permanent cure for it, but new intravenous medications are available which help in disease control. You need a very active lifestyle with intensive regular physical therapy, take adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation you also need to be in touch of a rheumatologist as it needs a long term supervised care. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards
