Mr.Ramana, After 1 yr after surgery, & after ur hand became normal also, i dontthink that u still need to continue the medication, if its pain killers. if any thing else, then u need to take ur concern Orth surgeon's opinion. If pain is there on & off, after exertion, then, if its bearable, u can ignore.Gradually it will be normal.otherwise, its better to use external appliaction in place of internal pain killers which are safer.

My wife is suffering from pain of knee doctor rx calcium tablet is it the right treatment?
Knees pain can b due to arthritis or muscle weakness. Also lack of vitamin d, calcium won't help if vit d is low. So get vitamin d check. If you need any further assistance please let me know. Thank you.

Mr. lybrate-user, Looking at your weight and height it is clear that you have grade 1 obesity with a BMI of 30.5 kgs/M2. Your ideal body weight should be closer to 65 kgs, hence, carrying an extra weight of 25 kgs. This itself can be a major reason for various problems. Plus if uric acid is hige (above 7 mg/100 ml), then that to may contribute to joint pains. You may have avoid high purine containing foods like red meat, organ meats, certain fishes like sardines, salmon, scallops, herrings, haddock and mushrooms and mussels. Also alcohol and aerated drinks need to be avoided. Thanks.

Sir my mom is suffering from RHD and tb.Medicines are given. She is fine after the medicines. But now she is suffering from body ache. what i have to do now ?

MD - General Medicine, MBBS
General Physician,
Please give us more details regarding the present status of her tb and rhd. Is she still taking the medicines? Since when is she having body ache and how often? Some of the problems of the heart and lungs release certain substance in the body which makes the body weak. This causes General body ache and tiredness. If she is still on medicine or just finished, she might take some time to recover. Till then give her nutritious food and some multivitamins.

I have leg pain for tow months and when I walk something is moving my leg and I want know what happen with me.

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
I have leg pain for tow months and when I walk something is moving my leg and I want know what happen with me.
Most leg pain results from wear and tear, overuse, or injuries in joints or bones or in muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots, varicose veins or poor circulation. To relieve mild pain: stay off your leg as much as possible apply an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day elevate your leg whenever you sit or lie down please go to a physiotherapist if: you have pain during or after walking you have swelling in both legs your pain gets worse your symptoms don't improve after a few days of home treatment you have painful varicose veins if you feel the pain is from muscle cramp then you need to drink a lot of water because poor fluid intake (dehydration) may predispose to cramps also low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps. Best wishes.

Swelling is a common problem after fracture, even after surgery. However we need to make sure that the fracture has united. Are you fully bearing weight on your legs? Do you have a recent x Ray. Please post the x Ray here. If fracture has united, a crepe bandage and physiotherapy will reduce the swelling.
