It is normal if there is no pain. It's meniscus tear if you have pain. Can't be simpler than this....

Hello, I am 27 years old male, I went for 22km trekking expedition. Next day while sneezing I felt a sudden pain wave through my left lower back. I took it casually and went to play soccer next day now I'm feeling it for past 3 days although the intensity is low-mild. I had similar back pain with high intensity around3 months back while picking up something from the floor. Went to see a doctor and foot x-rayed he told it's a sprain and have me passion killers it subsided in couple of days. Should I visit again to the doctor or it will cool down in a few days?

You have possibly sprained a ligament or joint capsule or a miscle strain in your back. First step is to take full rest for 2 to 3 days and get some pain killers from your local physician. Apply ice packs to painful area. If pain is not significantly better by then, you need to see a spine specialist for clinical evaluation.

I have started doing gym since last couple of months, lately I am experiencing pain on the left elbow. My instructor told me that it could be due to nerves getting less nutrition. Could you please suggest and share your views? 40 years, male.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am dr akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Your elbow pain can be due to multiple reasons: 1) it could be due to ligament strain in elbows since you are doind gymn 2) it could be due to inflammation around epicondyles which is very common my advise would be to manage it like an acute inflammation, so lots of ice packs, local analgesic spray, short course of anti-inflammatory medication which suits you, restriction of your physical activity till pain completely subsides. We will observe this protocol for around 2 weeks, if your pain persists, then we will get some tests done for you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

One of my friend of age 25 is suffering from back pain, he consulted many times to doctor but still the pain remains same. Kindly suggest any curable treatment.

Hello, there are many causes behind backache *any strain or sprain in the muscles or ligaments of the back during lifting of heavy objects is the main cause of the lower back pain. *sitting in the wrong posture for a very long time is another cause. *people suffering from constipation may also suffer from lower back pain. *sometimes sleeping on wrong type of beds can also cause pain in the back. Follow the tips *take rest or move about once in 1-2 hours in case of working in a constant position. *maintain a good posture while reading or working with computers. *take a high fibre content diet like vegetables, fruits, etc.

What is the meaning of endplate damage D12-L5? It was a digital radiography of spine. Please explain.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
End plates serve as the interface between rigid vertebral bodies and pliant intervertebral disks. Because the lumbar spine carries significant forces and disks don't have a dedicated blood supply, end plates must balance conflicting requirements of being strong to prevent vertebral fracture and porous to facilitate transport between disk cells and vertebral capillaries. Consequently, end plates are particularly susceptible to damage, which can increase communication between proinflammatory disk constituents and vascularized vertebral bone marrow. Damaged end plate regions can be sites of reactive bone marrow lesions that include proliferating nerves, which are susceptible to chemical sensitization and mechanical stimulation. Although several lines of evidence indicate that innervated end plate damage can be a source of chronic low back pain, its role in patients is likely underappreciated because innervated damage is poorly visualized with diagnostic imaging.

I got a sprain in my right ankle and was having severe pain so I consulted a doctor where I got xray done of my foot. (X-ray foot AP & oblique and x-ray foot AP & lateral. All the finding were normal) the doctor tied a crepe bandage and prescribed medicines. After all of this my leg is fine I can walk normally but while I bend my ankle towards right it still pains. Kindly help me with this as its been 4 days and there is no complete relief.

If your x rays are normal then there is no chance of problem with your bone .use that crepe bandage to reduce the swelling if present .u have to keep your ankle in elevated position and also you have to give ice over that region.

About 2-3 weeks ago I fell face first on the ground due to inability to spot a uneven surface on the footpath. That day my right knee did pain for the night, the next day however it subsided. Since like last week the pain has increased, much more as it is like going and coming back. I feel like wrapping something around the knee, till my feet. I can't keep my leg in one position for long.

Hi lybrate-user your description here clearly indicates a knee joint injury. This needs to be taken care of properly otherwise the trouble will become permanent and it will hamper many activities in your life. I am advising you to take some medicine for quick relief. 1. Rhus tox. 1000/twice daily for one day only report me after taking this.

Identify the midpoint 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. 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.
