Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- 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. 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. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. In my opinion reading your query I will advise you to get a comprehensive body checkup done with all investigations including inflammatory profile markers also. It will be good if you can actually consult with a general physician and get all the tests done. From an orthopaedic point of view, since you have multiple joint pains, I will advise you to get: cbc, esr, crp, serum vitamin d levels, serum electrolytes, thyroid profile also. Get these tests done empty stomach and send me the investigation reports. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Dear lybrateuser, - Sleep on a firm mattress which supports the spine well - sit straight with good back support - take pain relief tab after meals if pain is more - learn spine strengthening exercises & do them regularly to strengthen the muscles & soft tissues which support the spine - do x-ray spine if there is not much improvement in pain & consult a doctor

Instead of massage with ice you can apply cold pack for 20 minutes as it reduces pain and swelling.

You seem to be having a mental worry, and you are trying to explore a solution in your mind all the time. Oil has nothing to do with headache. But massaging head by somebody who loves you can relieve the headache. If headache persists, please consult
