Back pain is common if you are unaware of the ergonomics and maintaining proper posture while working. Always maintain the back rest and straight posture while working. Take frequent breaks for a min or two to walk around and stretch your back.

-Dolo-650 mg twice or thrice daily can be taken to lower a fever . -Wear loose fitting clothes and don’t overdress. Overdressing can cause temperature to rise further. -Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) baths may help bring down a fever -The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. -Fever can cause severe dehydration. Drink plenty of fluids.. Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami,Amla juice etc. -Take light and easily digestible home cooked meals .avoid outside food

Hi 3 months back, when I was dancing, my knee got twisted and hit on the ground. I felt very severe pain at that time and there is little swelling and I went to doctor and he checked my knee and said there is no fracture and nothing to be worried. He prescribed me medication. I think they're pain killers. I used the medication and got some relief from leg pain and then doctor prescribed me physiotherapy exercises for 2 week s with "ostojoint" medicine. I did physiotherapy exercises twice a day .But I didn't see any further improvement in my leg condition for 3 weeks. At the time of injury, I didn't limp, now I started limping and I felt lot of instability of knee when I walk. Then was asked to go for MRI scan. My MRI report says that" Bony oedema involving distal femur involving the intercondylar region and lateral condyle and inferomedial patella-possibilities are Bone contusions/inflammatory etiology. Grade 1 signal intensity degeneration involving the midbody of medial meniscus. Minimal joint effusion" Then CBP, ESR ,C reactive protein test was conducted.In reports everything came normal except ESR which is 40 (normal range <20 and I had viral fever which got cured in that week. I used anti inflammatory medicine for 2 weeks. Even after 2 week s my ESR remained same and I felt less pain compared to the previous week still limping. Then I went for TB test. Result came negative. Now I have to go for Biopsy and I am really scared. I want to know is it abnormal if edema is still there after 6-7 weeks of injury? Actually I was doing my daily activities with out taking much rest. Does it contributes in my knee condition. THANKS IN ADVANCE.

I have been working as a software engineer for the last three years and thus have a continuous sitting job. As a result of which I have developed severe lower back and neck pain, the pain is also accompanied by numbness in both the hands. Since the last two years I have been moving to and fro with doctors each having his different theory. Vitamin D deficiency, nerve compression, chronic fatigue syndrome are the different reasons which doctors have suggested. I have been taking Vitamin D supplements, medicines to heal nerve pain and doing meditation sincerely for the last two years but nothing has helped. Please advise some solution. I am 25 years old and feel pitiful of myself because of these issues.

Ok symptoms are like cs according your age it may be deficiency of bit d and calcium levels but your job is long sitting its also a cause so defined it tk a x-ray of cervical. Avoid long sitting and toward bending of spine. At time tk physiotherapy treatment for relief and reduce numbness this is due to overstrain of muscle tk muscle relaxant medicine firstly do that it will help you.

Normally you should be able to return to weightlifting about three to four months after your injury. Once your fracture heals, the joints are typically stiff and the surrounding muscles are weak because they haven't been used during immobilized time. You will need to increase your range of motion and strengthen your hand muscles before returning to weight lifting. Please consult a physiotherapist to find out what's causing you pain and the right pain management solution.

No need to take any kind of medicines, for you get to reduce your weight by physical work outs that depends upon your age capacity. One small suggestion every morning eat curry leaves in empty stomach and take a glass of hot water regularly. Try this it work out.

I am suffering from back ache what should I do to get relief without taking pills.

BHMS
Homeopath, Raebareli
I am suffering from back ache what should I do to get relief without taking pills.
I suggest you follow the below for your condition: take mag phos 6x - thrice daily (if you wish) also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and ice packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately.

I have back pain from last 2 yrs.
It very serve in the morning when I woke up.
Dear lybrate user, many factors can be associated for back pin from disc, joints, muscles etc. If there is morning stiffness some rheumatic component can also be present, advise is to get yourself throughly examined by orthopedician or interventional pain specialist for proper diagnosis and then further correct treatment, than taking pain killers for pain. Hope it helps.
