Apply ice pack for 10-15 min each, this will subside swelling & relieve pain To subside swelling you may also do retrograde massage Keep legs on high pillow while lying on bed this will prevent swelling to recur & proper blood circulation will be there.

Hernia is any abnormal protrusion of intraabdominal contents through abnormal orifice. Hernia problems require surgery and no other medications can decrease or remove it. Laparoscopically done mesh hernioplasty is the only curative option to have. Kindly see any laparoscopic surgeon for your problem.

Things to know about Hernia

MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Gurgaon
Things to know about Hernia

Hernia is not life threatening, but is commonly experienced by a number of people. You will experience hernia when an organ pushes through the muscles or tissues surrounding them. A hernia can occur anywhere in the body. The most common areas affected by it are the abdominal area, upper thigh, groin and belly button. In most cases, a surgery is required to treat this condition.

There are 4 common types of hernias. These are:

  1. Inguinal hernia: This is the most common type of hernia and affects more men than women. It occurs when the intestines push through the lower abdominal wall into the inguinal canal. 
  2. Hiatal hernia: This commonly affects elderly people and occurs when the stomach pushes upwards through the diaphragm. It may also affect children if they are born with a congenital birth defect. 
  3. Umbilical hernia: This affects children and occurs when the intestine pushes through abdominal wall near the bellybutton. 
  4. Incisional hernia: This occurs after an abdominal surgery when the intestine pushes through the scar or other weak tissues. 

A hernia can develop overnight or over a period of time. It can be triggered by many factors that cause weakening of muscles and strain the body. 

Some of these are:

  1. Congenital defects such as the abdominal wall failing to close properly
  2. Age
  3. Persistent coughing
  4. Surgical errors or injuries
  5. Pressure on the abdomen caused by pregnancy
  6. Straining as a result of constipation
  7. Collection of fluid in the abdomen
  8. Heavy weight lifting
  9. Excess weight gain

If anyone in your family has a hernia, you are at a high risk of suffering from one as well. Being obese and smoking can also increase your risk. Cystic fibrosis can also indirectly trigger a hernia by causing a persistent cough. Sometimes a hernia has no symptoms. A bulge in the affected area is the most common symptom of a hernia. 

Some other symptoms that you may notice are:

  1. Pain in the affected area
  2. Weakness or pressure in the abdomen
  3. A burning or aching sensation in the affected area
  4. Acid reflux
  5. Chest pain
  6. Difficulty swallowing 

If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Hi thanks for the query. From the details you had described it could be post traumatic deformity of the elbow joint. I would like to see clinical and x ray picture to comment on weather correction can be done or not. If the deformity out of the acceptable limits it could be corrected.

Most leg pain results from wear and tear, overuse, or injuries in joints or bones or in muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots, varicose veins or poor circulation. To relieve mild pain: stay off your leg as much as possible apply an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day elevate your leg whenever you sit or lie down please go to a physiotherapist if: you have pain during or after walking you have swelling in both legs your pain gets worse your symptoms don't improve after a few days of home treatment you have painful varicose veins leg pain happens when your muscles are tired or dehydrated. Drink more water if you're prone to leg cramps. Also low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps. Pleas check you calcium and magnesium levels.

Hi As far as sounds from the joints of the body is concerned, it is usually due to rubbing of uneven joint surfaces on one another, so it is not a cause of concern if there is no associated pain, swelling or any other joint symptoms. As far as pain in his calf muscles is concerned, he has to to do regular physical therapy, adequate calcium and vitamin d intake and can take a short course of an anti inflammatory medication.

Leg pain with backache. We should exclude intervertebral disc problem, osteophytes etc. X-ray of LS spine will determine the exact position. If nerve is compressed certain measures such as lumbar support or traction may be required in some cases.
