What is the severity of pain? is the pain continuous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders.

You had cholecystectomy done. Because of that you are unable to digest fat. Fat is passed in faeces (toilet) and may have bulky foul smelling stools floating in water of pot. Along with fat fat soluble vitamins are also lost. Moreover Vitamin B-12 absorption may also be erratic. So take Vitamin B-12 (Neurokind OD) 1/2 tablet sublingual (under tongue) twice daily for about a year. Along with take Becadexamin 1 capsule daily for 1 year Do not take fats at all. Use skimmed milk. Take apple daily for iron. Do regular exercises or start playing badminton or tennis. Do dancing or swimming if you know. For allergies, take cetrizine or levocetrizine when required. You may get allergy screening tests done and if positive take specially prepared allergy desensitization vaccine. If this still feel weakness, take Flouxetine (Fludac 10 mg) once daily under medical supervision seeking advice from a qualified doctor.

Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be the result of an injury or some other medical conditions including arthritis, patellar tendinitis, acl injury, knee bursitis, torn meniscus, gout and infections. From your symptoms it seems like you are developing osteo arthritis (oa) of knee. Try some home remedies for your pain relief: -activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. -if the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve: squatting kneeling twisting and pivoting jogging aerobics, dancing playing sport -use hot or cold packs. By increasing blood flow, hot compresses can ease pain and stiffness. Cold compresses reduce swelling. You may want to experiment with heat versus cold packs to see what works best for you. -stay active, physical activity is one of the best ways to improve your quality of life. Exercise boosts your energy. It can also strengthen your muscles and bones, and help keep your joints flexible. Try resistance training to build stronger muscles. - quads strengthening exercises are helpful oa knee. You need detail assessment with a physiotherapist to find out the diagnosis and for pain management. Best wishes.

I think your posture is not good. You shoud try to meet a good orthopaedic physiotherapist and learn how to sit, stand, walk, picking up objects, getting up from bed, try to understand lower back and core muscle strengthening exercises.

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. Also 9 months is a long time to be having continuous pain, so it is advisable for you to get few investigations done and follow up after results. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc and with no other associated constitutional symptoms like evening rise in temperature, loss of weight, excessive sweating at night 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. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Inform after 10 days.

I am 63 yrs old, my rightleg knee pain due to joint ball eroded slightly.

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist,
This could be due to OA knee &/Or obesity. Physiotherapy along with medicines will help. Do knee exercises. It may have to be further investigated Rule out diabetes & vit.D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with a soft bedding on it. Any way take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. IBUPROFEN 200mg OD & SOS x 5days CALDIKID PLUS (mankind) 1 tab ODx10days You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do ask for detailed treatment plan.. Don't ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. DO not take any injection in knee joint. It will destroy the joint.

Which part of legs are painful? Legs are from groin to toe. It becomes very difficult to advice when question doesn't indicate appropriate body part and lacks details.

knee pain at this age is mostly due to osteoarthritis that is due to wear and tear of the joints Advice her not to over bend the knee, avoid squatting position. She should take calcium supplement. Taking akhroat is also good for joints consult in Homeopathy for medicine.
