Hello lybrate-user, it may be due to any wrong posture adopted while sleeping or may be due to a long drive. Just apply hot water bag over neck as a primary measure and see how it is.

For your age, it would be best if you get a TMT done to rule out any cardiac risk. But do understand that a negative TMT does not give 100% gaurantee that there are no significant blockages, the only 100% surety is via an angiography.

Dear sir/mam my wife ( age: 26 yrs) is going through the water accumulation problem in her right knee from past one year, I have visited many doctors but none is able to diagnose the exact reason of it. Removed water from her knees two times by the doctors but it gets filled again and again, doctors diagnosed ra on the basis of ra factor and anti ccp tests, gave the arthritis medicines for 6 months but still the problem is same, the last doctor I visited 2 weeks back says she is not having arthiritis as she don't have pain in any other bone joints in the body and xray is normal. I am attaching the last x-ray report done on 18. 04. 2015 for your convenience, almost an year back she met with an accident on the same knee, got bruises and blood came out but nothing was found in xray. If possible please guide me to the right path. I have all the reports available with me. Your valuable support is required. please help. Regards:

Massage with your thumbs from the midpoints of your shoulder blade towards back of your head upto the lower edge of the ear on your either side. Use oil or waer. Move only upwards only. Afterwards do arm rotation forward and backward slowly acupressure and acupuncture are powerful therapies which gives relief from especially joint pains, back pains and lot of other ailments. I am suggesting you a method by which you can get instant relief and continue to do it. However you consult me privately to get permanent solution. 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. Swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Also take calcium tablets shelcal 500mg for a limited period 2 months consult after 10 days.

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).

Generalized body pain is commonly seen in your age due to vitamin B12 and D3 and calcium deficiency. You should get these tested and start taking supplements. Regular exercise helps. If the pain persists then tests for arthritis should be done.
