A good way to diffuse general body pains: 1.take a long hot bath in water in which a few cups of Epsom salts have been added. 2.If you suspect your body and pains are due to stress-get plenty of sleep and try to reduce or eliminate the cause of your stress. 3.Meditation, deep breathing and yoga.

My feet and ankles are swollen I did my kidney test lie urine routine and microalbunaria but everything is normal how to remove edema from ankles .Please help.

Check your BP and cardiac status. You can start exercising (esp Yoga- which includes pranayam and meditation) as it is very beneficial in Diabetes and maintaining overall health. Ruling out all the major causes of swelling is essential before taking it as normal. Hence the need to go for regular health checkup with your doctor. You can add Homeopathy as it can fine-tune your body regulation in a very subtle way without interfering the current treatment regime. You can contact me for further details.

Dear lybrate-user, as you already have diagnosis from an orthopaedician, giving suggestion would be accurate. Kindly, make sure you give sufficient rest so that you give time for the body to recover. Do not add extra burden on the other ankle while standing. Do stay away from all the outdoor games till complete recovery. Use hot water sprinkling over the ankle region 3-4 times per day. If problem persists, kindly consult personally. Get well soon,

For weight loss. Cause of weight gain need to be confirmed first. Then as per cause treatment will be decided. Mostly for weight loss patients need to do exercise. Diet modification. Stress reduction. Plenty of oral fluids. But to make a definitive plan of care to a particular patient.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

Backache is a common ailment. Rule out diabetes & vit.D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. SPRING BEDS, FOLDING BEDS OR THICK MATRESS ARE HARMFUL Use no pillow under the head. Any way take IBUPROFEN 200mg OD & SOS x 5days CALDIKIND PLUS (mankind) 1 tab ODx10days You will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take Do ask for detailed treatment plan..Don’t ignore, lest it becomes starting point of a major problem

Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Consult after 5 days.
