Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Actually pain at calf/leg region can be due to many reasons, commonly it is muscular in nature but it can also be due to tendons, nerves, blood vessels etc. My advise to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - ice packs application intensively with elevation of your limbs at night - take a short course of anti-inflammatory medication as per your body's suitability - stop your physical activity till pain completely subsides - intensive physical therapy, training and proper muscle conditioning once pain has subsided - slow resumption of physical activities with proper pre activity warm up and stretching of muscles and short increments in duration of physical activity each day as per pain tolerance. - we will get some blood tests for you - serum vitamin d and serum potassium levels, esr and crp once you have all these reports then you can contact me as I can advise you for proper supplementation 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. Thanks & regards

If I keep on working with systems, will I get back pain or any other side effects? Please suggest solutions.

If I keep on working with systems, will I get back pain or any other side effects? Please suggest solutions.
It depends on your posture while sitting, keep your back and neck straight and relaxed (not completely erect), do not use a stool if you have to sit for a long time, opt for a chair with back support, and place a lumbar roll on your chair where your lower back makes contact with the chair. Also if possible after every 30min-1hr stand up and take a short break of 5 minutes.

I am suffering from fever in Two days, and pain in my body. Now what I can do for myself.

BHMS

I am suffering from fever in Two days, and pain in my body.
Now what I can do for myself.
Please take rhus tox 200 - thrice daily for next 3-4 days. Also -- soak a washcloth in cool tap water wring out the excess water and then sponge areas like your armpits, feet, hands and groin to reduce the temperature. Also, you can place cold, damp washcloths on your forehead and the back of your neck. The cloth pieces should be changed regularly after a few minutes. This remedy is beneficial when dealing with a high fever as it helps keep temperature under control. You can also take a bath in lukewarm water to relax your body. Taking a shower, however, may not be a good idea. Plus, needless to say, take as much rest as possible as it helps the body fight the illness. Note: do not use very cold water as it may cause the internal body temperature to increase.

Hi thanks for your query. I am not aware about vibrator for spine physical therapy but in any case it should not cause anything with your voice because spine is at a lower level. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

It is better to avoid steroid for joint pain without consulting a rheumatologist. Steroid is prescribed for Rheumatoid arthritis.

Please don't get nervous! not all patients of backache need surgery. Most of them can be managed without operation. This is an advanced surgical procedure. This type of surgery is not done in most of the hospitals. I think you should have it done in delhi.
