Hi I am a male 38 feeling pain in shoulder & neck, having pain on the back side of foot, from last 1 week. No uric acid, no bp only low vitamin d 7. 5

Hi thanks for your query. A lot of multiple joint pains, myalgia, fatigue and weakness can be due to lack of vitamin d levels in the body, my advice is to supplement adequately and let me know if your symptoms still persist. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

Well, I'm doing a back office job in night shift which makes me sit alot and I'm just sleeping all day and work all night can't get time to workout. The problem is "I'm a smoker" and I've been doing it since 2011 on regular basis, averagely I smoke 3 cigarettes a day. These day I'm feeling like I'm burning inside my chest, too hot in there. Am I dying or anything serious is going to happen with me? I've tried several times to quit smoking but after 2 or 3 days I restarts it all the time. I can't run, I can't play games even I'm having issues while having sex, I get tired very fast may I'm having erection problem too. I'm too young to have all these issues. Please help me on this.

Dear lybrate-user, There are many who are on night shift and still working out. Nobody can make you work for more than 10-12 hours a day, Even if you spend 7-8 hours a day sleeping, you still have few hours for yourself. Try and start a work out program at the earliest. Along with lack of exercise, smoking adds to the risk of many medical problems at an earlier age. It is good that you tried stopping smoking. It is usual for people to restart after 2-3 days because they have craving and/or withdrawal symptoms. Both can be addressed in a systematic manner by nicotine gums and motivational enhancement therapy. If it is done continuously for 12 weeks, you may remain cigarette free for longer time. Quitting smoking may increase your sexual potency. Let us wait, till you stop smoking for 12 weeks. Otherwise also it can be treated.

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. 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.

These things happens when there is high uric acid levels. Probably you require some long term management for that. But instead of starting with medicines this can be controlled by dietary management also. If possible come online for examination.

Sudden severe exercises can start symptoms like these. Take rest for few days. Restart gradually build & up stamina. It could be oa/obesity do hot fomentation. Any way take paracetamol 250mg od & sos you will need other supportive medicines also. Contact me again if needed. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Sometimes the pain can be so diffused ie. the lower end of the vertebral column might be inflamed and that bone is called coccyx bone and the condition is called Coccydynia. The conservative management would be to keep ice in that inflamed area during one time in a day and also to sit in a hot water bowl where the penetration of the heat would help to reduce the inflammation. And to reduce the weight falling on the inflammed surface we suggest patients to use air cushion pillow (also called as doughnut pillow) where in the buttock's weight will not fall exactly on the painful tail bone and that would automatically reduce the pain. This air cushion pillow (donut pillow) can be used in the hard surfaces of sitting ie. dining table chairs, wooden chairs, not definitely on the soft surfaces like sofa, cushion sofa, spongy cushion chairs etc,
