Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Can you exactly tell me whether you have any lower back issues and whether this pain in legs is actually a radiating pain from lower back region or is separate from that? actually pain at calf/leg region can be due to many reasons, commonly it is muscular in nature but it can also be due to tendons, nerves, blood vessels etc. 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.

Cost of surgery varies from doctor to doctor. It also depends on hospital, type of bed you choose etc. It can be anything from 5000 to 50000. Medical college will do it for free:-)

Good evening sir your pain in the ankle will be due to a sprain in the foot. I would advice you to wear proper foot ware for your feet. Do get a a hot fermentation done. Then you could also do a stretching exercises for the foot. This will enable better movement on the foot.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Normally you are very young and actually should not be having these pains. Do you have a chronic illness for which you have taken any long term treatment? are any other joints in the body also involved in this disease process? I will advise you: 1) blood tests: cbc, esr, crp, serum uric acid, serum vitamin d levels as it will tell me whether there is any inflammatory process going on or not 2) x rays of involved ankle if possible 3) clinical picture of your ankle region pointing towards site of pain. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I'm suffering from rheumotide arthritis approx 20 years after takeing boron supplement for 3 month my esr is going down 33 to 21 now and my crp is 2.4 is it a singal arthritis is going now?

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

Rheumatoid arthritis is a self limiting disease. Acute phase can be managed with medicines. Physiotherapy helps in preventing contractures & deformities. Keep your moral up! any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days caldikind plus (mankind) 1tab odx10days you will need other supportive medicines also. Do knee exercises it may have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Inform after 5 days.

Try sitting on a soft cushion at work to avoid constant pressure on the coccyx. And try taking a break every hour and walk a little. Ultrasonic treatment at a physiotherapy clinic will give you relief.

Please see a Rheumatologist personally. One needs to examine your knee joints and see if there are any signs of inflammation (like swelling, tenderness). Deatiled history regarding other joints involvement would also be of help.
