Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. If there is pain in whole upper limb with any other associated symptoms like numbness, paresthesias etc, then there can be a possible impingement of a nerve. You are advised to start with gentle anti inflammatory medications, physical therapy, if radiating pain is severe, then medications for neuropathic pain etc can be started and normally your symptoms should settle in next 5-7 days, if they do not subside, then a detailed neurological examination and appropriate investigations need to be done. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Hi good evening lybrate-user, uric acid level 8.8 means you are suffering with a condition called gout. In which there will be lack of some enzymes which prevents the formation of protein end products the unprocessed products will get deposited in your joints and resulting pain, treatment you have to visit your doctor for anti gout medication and monitor your uric acid levels on regular intervals. Prevention by decreasing the intake of high protein diet like red meat, thank you bikram.

As far as your heart side pain is concerned, get your self examined by a cardiologist. For arthritic pains homoeopathy has good treatment. Take calc fluor 200--once daily in the morning.

My dad just fell from bike. His right shoulder is injured. There is pain when he tries to lift his hand sideways.
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. As a general rule, first step is to rule out a bony injury and for that x ray of the affected shoulder is required. If there is no bony injury, I would advise to start with conservative management in form of ice packs, gentle anti inflammatory medication, arm sling and local analgesic spray for application for 5-7 days. If your pain, swelling and other associated symptoms do not subside after 5-7 days time, then we need to evaluate you and look for what soft tissue injury is there exactly? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Hello. We can't reverse the established pathology back, but we can control the process in the stage it is so that it wouldn't grow further. Apply Bakson’s Rheum Aid oil gently (2-3 times a day) and take orally Bakson’s Rheum-Aid syrup/ 1 tablespoon thrice daily. Also, increase your dietary intake of calcium which is present in green leafy vegetables, milk, milk products, sea food, white legumes, dried fig, black-eyed peas, almonds, oranges, seasame seeds. And vitamin D which is essential for absorption of calcium in our body and is synthesized naturally after getting exposed to sunlight, so early morning sunlight for 10-15min. 2-3 times a day is mandatory. Apart from this, do walk daily along with physiotherapy will also help you.

Hamstring stretching Towel Hamstring Stretch Lie on the back, supporting the thigh with the hand or with a towel wrapped around it.. Slowly straighten the knee until a stretch is felt in the back of the thigh, trying to get the bottom of the foot to face the ceiling, one leg at a time. Hold the position initially for 10 seconds, and gradually work up to 20 to 30 seconds. Seated Hamstring Stretch While sitting at the edge of a chair, straighten one leg in front of the body with the heel on the floor. Then, sit up straight and try pushing the navel towards the thigh without leaning the trunk of the body forwards. Hold this stretch for 30 seconds Repeat 3 times for each leg.
