I have a sharp stabbing pain in the lower back, just above the hip and bit to the left of the base of the spine. It is not the typical back pain we usually have if we workout too much or anything. This just came out of nowhere and it refuses to go away. If I do any excercises then it just aggravates the pain and refuses to respond to any balms/ointments. What is the reason for this back pain ?

Hi, I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. Your pain can be due to muscle strain or it could be discogenic if it is originating from spine. You can try physical therapy and anti-inflammatory therapy for few days but if it persists then you will require a consultation from an Orthopaedic Surgeon. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Email Id : akshaysaxena2004@yahoo.co.in

Requires examination and investigation in detail. Presently investigations suggested: hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid vit d xray of the affected part. Anyway you may try sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head do hot fomentation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform

I have been suffering from persistent pain in my back.
What is its cause and please tell some remedy also.
Hello, first of all you should know what is backache and by which factors it caused and aggravated. The usual cause of low back pain is the sedentary lifestyle that we lead these days. There is hardly any movemely walking, running and cycling like activities are also not a part of our daily routine. To add to it, our diet consists more and more of junk food. Fresh fruits, vegetables and high fibre foods are consumed less and less. These daily practices lead to obesity. The increased body weight puts lot of pressure on the spine which has to bear all the extra unwanted weight. The back muscles which are already weak due to lack of exercise and wrong posture are unable to cope with this increased load. This causes pain in the back muscles. Management for Back Pain:-Along with medicines for relieving pain, one needs to identify the cause and correct it. This may require some medicines or some correction in your posture or reducing weight or improving your lifestyle. At the same time, there is a need to work on the local muscle strengthening. Back muscles need to be strengthened so that they can bear the weight of the upper body. For this exercises of the back muscles are very helpful. Regular walking is also very helpful as it is a wholesome exercise of the body, improves blood circulation and helps lose weight. Most importantly if you are overweight then losing weight is an important part of the whole treatment plan .Long term use of painkillers for low back pain is harmful Treatment for back pain:- Homeopathic medicines are very helpful. They not only treat the acute stages but are also used for the treatment of chronic back pain.Selection of the exact remedy depends upon the individual symptoms of the person.So share the complete symptom picture for the proper treament. In the mean time take Arnica 200, 3 drops in the morning and Rhus tox. 200, 3 drops at night for 7 days.Take care

Im still studying. But I can not come back from my first love failure. How can I forget her and concentrate on study as soon as possible.

Im still studying. But I can not come back from my first love failure. How can I forget her and concentrate on study ...
See, don't focus on" I have to forget her" Because energy goes there. More you try about forgetting; more you will remember. Instead focus on what you want to become" Happy, Fresh, Energetic isn't it. So, focus on that with great conviction. Follow some basic tips. •Accept the reality: This is the most difficult stage. Mind will not accept the reality easily but, you have to do it. Stop becoming victim. Accept the reality and stop self destruction. You don't need to prove anything to anybody. Understand this and prepare your mind set. •Now stop having self pity and make your life interesting. And surely for that you don't require your ex. You are the only one who can make it. Do following things: 1. Meet up your friends talk to them, share our feelings and enjoy their company as we used to do when we were young. You will feel free. 2. Meet parents, if possible talk to them take their blessings. It works really. Surrender yourself with all your problems and fears, happy and sad moments to them and god or any supreme power you believe in. Surrendering is the most important thing in this process. It helps in letting go the emotional blockages you have. 3. Stop contacting your ex (of course). Always remember She was past and past is passed. Remove her number also from the personal diary and mind. Stop stalking him/her. 4. Have a faith that, you can do it. Do your sadhana (the worship and work) daily. This helps in increasing confidence in yourself. Make a commitment to yourself with a conviction about your sadhana. 5. Hit Gym and get physically fit. See, mind is subtle part of body. If you are healthy, and it will be strong enough to handle this stuff. 6. Play. Enjoy your life. It only come once. Trust me, you start living your life and you will find the way. It changes the state of mind. 7. Try you to pick a hobby which you wanted to do but you didn't. (eg. Music, Trekking, any Sport etc) In short get busy and stop living lonely. With consistent efforts, you will make it. Don't do it just by thinking that" I am doing this for forget her"; do this because you love yourself and there are so many people who loves you. You are surrounded with the plenty of friends, relatives and other human beings. If one person is not loving you, it doesn't makes any difference. Understand this basic and move on. Your love was not just reciprocated friend, and nothing else. When you will live your life positively, you will be surrounded with positive people and eventually you will meet a sweet person who will reciprocate your love more than you have ever given and more than you can imagine. You will get out of it slowly over the period of time for sure. And high time you start focusing in your studies. All the very best. Regards

It happens because of the calcium deficiency. Start taking its supplements like bananas, milk, sitaphal etc. And take Calc Phos 6X three times in a day for 1 month. It will be alright. Take care. :) And if you have any other query. Please ask.

Dear lybrate user, a kidney stone is mainly formed due to the accumulation of the minerals present in urine. Such accumulation occurs mainly due to low intake of fluids. Continuous low fluid intake results in the deposits of the minerals over the stone & eventually leads to an increase in the size of the stone. Formation of stone leads to pain along the kidney region. If the size of the kidney stone is below 3mm then it is possible to get rid of it without any surgery. Take homoeopathic mother tincture berberis vulgaris q, 30 drops, thrice daily, after meals, in a cup of water for 15 days. The stone will be expelled through urine in between the span of 15 days of medication. But if the size of the stone is more than 3mm then you should surely go for surgery.

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 user, it happens nothing to worry, avoid prolonged standing or sitting. Apply heat fermentation with any pain relief ointment to reduce pain. Lying flat on bed put rolled towel under your knee and press it x20 times twice a day for 10 days. I suggest you to consult in person with physiotherapist for proper diagnosis and treatment.

I have little pain in leg so please give me better suggestion for this advice so that I can relief.
Hi. Is there any history of injury or hurt to the area? any underlying medical condition? the pain in legs can be because of - muscle cramps (due to tiredness or dehydration), shin splints (doing activity over and over on hard surfaces can bring this on. You may also be more likely to get shin splints if you have flat feet or your feet turn outward. Rest your legs to feel better. Ice helps), tendinitis (you can get it from overworking the calf muscle or climbing the stairs, apply ice to get some relief), sprains (do rest, ice, compression & elevation). Other causes are varicose veins, arterial disease, sciatica, diabetic neuropathy. Medication: meantime, take homoeopathic medicines - arnica 200 and rhus tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply schwabe's topi-arnica and topi mp gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. And wrap crepe bandage over it. Get back to me thereafter.

Sleep disturbance are mainly due to diet modifications and as a result of occupational hazard. Do not go for chemical sedatives or anti-depressant medicines. Try this ayurvedic treatment a) avoid spicy and salty diet intake and add sweet intake (sugar products) in your diet b) use nili bhringadi hair oil for head massage and cows ghee for foot sole massage in the night before going to bed c) use pure almond oil as 1 nasal drop twice a day d) use jatamansi powder and make its fant (cold decoction) and take that before going to bed e) you can also use tab manasmitra vatakam 1 tab twice a day with the upper treatment for quick result.
