Hi I am Dr. Saurabh gupta from max hospital and I would like to answer your query. It is due to nerve compression. You need to get an mri scan of the area done. Meanwhile you can follow these measures: - if the pain is severe, you need bed rest till the pain resolves. - get some analgesics prescribed and apply analgesic spray or ointments. - while resting, keep a pillow under your knees if it doesn't bother you. - avoid lifting heavy objects. - back strengthening exercises and stretching exercises daily as advised by a physiotherapist. - avoid exercises in times of pain. - improvise your posture while sitting. 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.

Hi Thanks for your query. I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. There is no technology which has a cure. These are degenerative conditions which require intensive physical therapy and supportive medications. If it is still not cured, then some injections can help. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain.

Hello dear understand your concern. You should do colour doppler usg. So you can know which vein is affected. You hv to wear stockings in your legs ehich can made by some specialized company according to your legs measurements. Avoid standing long time. Keep your legs up during nt (place some pillows under your legs.) keep some exercises & walking. Whenever you feel more pain take foot massage from toe to thigh directions so your blood flow become correct & your inflammation reduced & pain subside. Take tab. Dan-p if you feel more pain. I hope this helps u.

Try this for joint pains try this. 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. Consult after 10 days.

Dear lybrate user! do not worry about the knee problem, first of all reduce your weight, and do quadriceps exercise, and take more calcium supplements like milk. And for diabetes reduce your food intake, walk for 3o minutes daily take homoeopathy medicine

Joint pains in hand and leg. RA has been ruled out. No fever complaint but only pain in joint.

Joint pains in hand and leg. RA has been ruled out. No fever complaint but only pain in joint.
Ra if has been ruled out by ra factor, then you must consider doing anti ccp antibody. Ra factor is variably positive from 20% to 70% in people having rhuematoid arthritis. Also consider having vitamin d levels. Levels less than 25 might need supplements and might be the cause of pain.

Don't assume anything. Get a check up done first by an orthopedic doctor. Mostly while gymming, if any injury happens, it usually is a microtear which gets healed slowly itself by giving the part rest, ice and protection. But to know its minor or major you need to first get a check up done.
