I am experiencing numbness in my legs after I sit for too long, but I am overweight too.What should i do?
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Numbness is usually a symptom of nerve involvement and nerves can get involved in a number of ways, so it can be involvement at the level of lower back region, entrapment of a nerve along its course, in a systemic disease like diabetes or other metabolic pathology etc. So management will depend upon treatment of primary cause, physical therapy like tens, medications for neuropathic symptoms like pregabalin or gabapentin, vitamin b12 supplementation etc. 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.

5 Ways Stress Hurts Your Body, and What to Do About It

Where are you storing emotions in your body?

Have you noticed a painful knot in your neck muscles after a stressful week?
When you hear a song that reminds you of a difficult breakup, do your hands clench or shoulders automatically tighten? Have you taken a hip-opener yoga class and wondered why you were filled with strange emotions afterwards?
Our minds carry our emotional stress, but so do our bodies. The physical clues we experience could be telltale signs of emotional memories. 

Neuroscientists often report that the amygdala or limbic system in the brain stores human emotions and memory. But, the brain is not the only place where your emotions are stored. Your body holds onto your past, too.
Our body is our subconscious mind. Our physical body can be changed by the emotions we experience.?
Research reveals the integrated physiology behind emotion-body connection: 

?A feeling sparked in our mind-or body-will translate as a peptide being released somewhere.
[Organs, tissues, skin, muscle and endocrine glands], they all have peptide receptors on them and can access and store emotional information. This means the emotional memory is stored in many places in the body, not just or even primarily, in the brain. You can access emotional memory anywhere in the peptide/receptor network, in any number of ways. I think unexpressed emotions are literally lodged in the body. The real true emotions that need to be expressed are in the body, trying to move up and be expressed and thereby integrated, made whole, and healed.?

Modern scientific research is still trying to figure out the impact of emotions on the body.
How we experience emotions in the body. Participants were instructed to color where they actively experienced the emotion in their body,ranging from love to shame.
Anger and pride fire up the head, neck, and shoulders. Love and happiness fill nearly the entire body, especially the heart. Anxiety and fear activate the chest, an area where people with panic attacks often feel tightness. Depression deactivates most of the body, especially the limbs, consistent with the sensation of heavy limbs that many people with depression experience.

The bodily experience of emotions is nearly instantaneous.
We feel within the first few seconds of a negative emotion, people automatically tense the muscles in their jaw and around the eyes and mouth. Neurophysiologists explain that with repeated stress, people over time have shorter and shorter neck and shoulder muscles.
We can found that people with depression had chronically tight brow muscles (corrugator muscles) even when they did not think they were frowning. Multiple studies indicate that an increased mental workload results in increased muscle tension in the cervical and shoulder areas, particular in people working at computers.
Muscle tension can lead to chronic pain, knots, and spasms.We can notice that muscle tension decreases blood flow, leading to lower oxygen delivery, lactic acid buildup, and the accumulation of toxic metabolites. Shortening of the muscle fibers can also activate pain receptors. Lack of movement can further reduce blood flow and oxygenation. 
What can we do to prevent the storing of negative emotions in our tense muscles? Take a moment to see where you might be storing stress in your body. Every body is unique, and our bodies change day to day. Notice where you hold onto different emotions in your body, and kickstart the process of releasing these negative emotions with the first step-- giving your body attention and awareness. Here are some common areas of tension:

1. Jaw- Emotions like anger and stress can cause clenching of the jaw and muscles around the mouth.

What to do: Release the jaw by a simple Lion?s breath (link is external) (or if you?re in an open office, you try yawning or sighing with an open mouth)

2. Brow- Feeling down or worried can cause you to knit your brow without even realizing it.

What to do: Release your forehead by raising and lowering your eyebrows 2-3 times. Also, inhale deeply while closing and squinting your eyes tightly, and then exhale while you release the tension and open your eyes.

3. Neck- If you are constantly looking down at papers or at a computer, your neck may be angled in one position for an extended period of time without any movement, causing lower blood flow to your neck muscles. It shows that when mental workload increases, the cervical area feels the effects.

What to do: Bring back blood flow to your neck muscles by rolling your head gently from one side to the other, and then changing directions. Avoid holding your neck in one position for long periods of time.

4. Shoulders- The trapezoid muscle of your shoulders holds up your head, which weighs around 5 Kg.
If you have a sitting desk or computer job, you are likely not moving your shoulders regularly, which can create knots and muscle spasms in the trapezoids.
Increased mental workload directly results in physical tension in the arm and shoulders.

What to do: With an inhale, lift your shoulders to your ears. Exhale and draw your shoulders down and back, guiding the shoulder blades towards each other and downwards.

5. Hips- Most people don?t automatically associate hips with emotions. But hips as storing negative emotions (link is external) hips can lead to an unexpected release of emotions. While there is little possibility that can shed light on the relationship between negative emotions and hips, one study (link is external) has shown an interesting connection between the jaw and hips.
After tension of the temporomandibular joint was released, the range of motion of the hip significantly increased.

Understanding Foot Pain: Causes And Treatments

Understanding Foot Pain: Causes And Treatments

Our body is a mechanical wonder and it is truly amazing how each part, from head to toe, has its own role to play. Our feet has one of the most complex mechanisms in the body. The way it works is just so intricate and fascinating! But, due to being so complex, there are a lot of things which have the potential to go wrong and cause a foot to begin to pain.

Taking into account the various troubles the foot can have, does it not make sense to learn what some of the causes are?

Sprains and strains are just so common when it comes to the causes of foot pain. That being said, there are quite a lot of people who do not really know how to tell the difference, exactly, between an injury such as this and something which is more serious. This is what causes a lot of terrible injuries to go untreated for quite some time, leading to them getting progressively worse.

While the name of the condition may be difficult, plantar fasciitis is the fancy name for a swelling up of a certain ligament and too much pressure is the reason behind it. The ligament is the one which is responsible for connecting the heel bone to the toes. When it comes to what is to be done in order to treat this sort of condition, the most important thing is to make sure the foot is rested to a sufficient extent. After all, it is too much use which got the injury to occur in the first place, right?

In addition to this, heel and foot stretches are of high importance and if the pain is very bad, pain relief medicines are to be taken, but a person should make sure that he or she does not become too reliant on these sort of medicines.

A stone bruise is something, which need not take place due to a stone, but the term does quite a good job of explaining why such an injury occurs in the first place. If a hard object is stepped on, it can cause an injury to the heel or to the ball of the foot. Again, in a case like this, it is important to rest the area. Also, applying ice to it will help it go away sooner than it normally would have.

A heel fracture may have similar causes to a stone bruise, but is more intense. Serious medical attention is required as it may not only break the heel but also cause related damage. A wheelchair or crutches are the way to go and a cast is required in most cases.
