Go for a Hip MRI to get it examined to know the true cause of pain. Headache can be due to Cervical Spine issue with tight muscles around the head and neck which can give headaches which mimics migraine type headache. Consult a Qualified Orthopedic Physiotherapist Specialised in Manual Medicine. Take Magnesium Citrate 400 mg daily at night, may take 800 mg divided in two dose before sleep. Take Coenzyme Q10 200 mg per day at morning. Make sure you don't have Heart disease already diagnosed and taking any blood thinning and digoxin drug, otherwise Coenzyme Q10 is not advised in this. Hope it helps.

I am 68 years of age and discovered towards end of Feb. 2016 that I've started with Hernia on the left side, later confirmed by ultrasound (USG) at Metro Hospital, Faridabad. Prior to this I had lot of indigestion problems which are under control now but I feel ache in the lower abdomen almost every alternate days. Doctor says, whether it be operation or laparoscopic treatment, the expenditure would be about 50.55 thousand Rs. Should I buy a health insurance policy today, the waiting time for operation is min. 2 yrs. A) Is the ache in abdomen a feature associated with Hernia. B) How long I can safely go without an operation. C) What are the chances for and secondary diseases due to Hernia D) Would an operation at a Govt. Hospital work -out cheaper and more economical E) Will an abdomen belt or langot be helpful.

Yes lower abdomen pain is a feature of hernia. The only treatment for hernia is operation. Operation can be by open technique or by laparoscopic technique. Waiting period should not be more than few months but in case of hernia complications are likely to happen and treatment should be done as early as feasable. Govt hospitals provide same treatment at no cost but mesh infection like complications chances are difficult to claim. Abdomen belt or langot may temperarily prevent hernia protrusions but this itself increases the chances of complications because of pressure over hernia contents and so is abandoned from use now a days. Insurance done at this stage will not cover any condition which is already present at the time of insurance started. Also diseases like hernia are not covered from day 1 in most of insurances and will take months to years from start of insurance for it to be covered.

Backache /pain has several reasons like muscle spasm, spine issue, injury etc. Condition may get worst if it keep untreated. Ayurveda is one of most popular treatment for joint pain & backache. The selection of remedy is based upon the theory of individualization and symptoms similarity . ayurvedic treatment not only gives complete relief from pain it also improves bone strength as well calcium absorption which is essential for all 206 bones & joint . You can easily take an online consultation for further treatment guidance and permanent cure without any side effects. tips for you :- 1) Do massage with warm sesame oil or suitable oil for 15 min., afterwards take hot fomentation for 10 min. 2) Start natural calcium supplement. 3) Do regular stretching exercise 4) In yoga DO BHUJANGASAN, HALASAN & SURYANAMASKAR.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. The pain is since 2 days so you can take a gentle anti inflammatory medication and physical therapy to start with. The cause of pain could be many, it can be muscular, nerve related etc but if you do not get relief with conservative regimen in 5-7 days time, then let me know because we might have to get your friend investigated. 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.
