I am 19 years old and male. I had a leg pain below the knee when I was going to running.
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 if you feel the pain is from muscle cramp then you need to drink a lot of water because poor fluid intake (dehydration) may predispose to cramps also low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps.

Hello, Thanks for the query. I have gone through the query. It is too general. Without any specific information it is very difficult to say why there is swelling in legs. There are many possible reasons like high BP, excess weight, kidney problem or thyroid related condition. Since no information is given on weight, height, BP, blood glucose levels etc, it is not possible to comment. Snoring can get aggravated because of being over weight also. So please come back with more precise information. Thanks.

This is cervical pain (neck pain) and that's the reason the pain radiates until the shoulder blades. If you keep ice that would help and along side you can do hot water fermentation. You shall use cervical collar which would help you to reduce the radiating pain ie. Due to the nerve compression.

I haven't been able to walk properly since 2 days and I am having a severe pain in knee, tried multiple home remedies, but didn't work, what to do? Please help me!

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Neck and Shoulders pain.
Scapular Pain or Shoulder blades pain  is a pain that is caused by cervical spine conditions and lower spine conditions. Pain around the scapula is common and can be referred from other sites such as the neck, thoracic spine or shoulder itself. The muscles that stabilise the scapula can be a source of pain in problems of the shoulder and neck. These muscles can fatigue leading to local discomfort and loss of the normal scapula control.
The most common cause of scapular pain is muscular which is due to rhomboideus muscles, 
Trapezius muscles.



Causes -
Bad Posture.
Injury 
Aging
Arthritis 
Stress
Cold.

Symptoms
Pain is a major symptom, and in this case is primarily located around the shoulder blades and spine, and the general upper back. A general feeling of tightness and increased sensitivity in this area may also be present. Pain and tenderness will generally feel worse with movement, or any activity that stretches this area of the shoulders and back – even breathing deeply.  Knots are often common with rhomboid muscle strains, and someone kifeeling the back, say during a massage, will be able to feel the tension.
Physiotherapy Management
Avoiding activities that cause pain, such as sports and rigorous physical activity, is recommended to allow the injured muscles to rest.  Once the pain has been reduced, a course of stretches and home exercise therapy will fully restore the back and upper shoulders to their normal, full range of motion.

I am having trouble in sleeping. It is happening from last 8 days. I am also having some back pain. What should I do?

I am having trouble in sleeping. It is happening from last 8 days. I am also having some back pain. What should I do?
Boil 3 grams of fresh mint leaves or 1.5 grams of dried powder of mint leaves in 1 cup of water for 15-20 minutes. Take lukewarm with 1 teaspoon of honey at bedtime. Add ½ tsp of cinnamon powder and 1 tsp of honey with 1 cup of warm milk. Drink before going to bed. Massage your feet with lukewarm mustard oil 2-3 times a day and before going to bed. Take 1 teaspoon each of brahmi and ashwagandha powder in 2 cups of water, boil and reduce it to one cup and drink it daily in the morning. Tips for back ache:: 1.Peel two cloves of garlic and crush it. Add this to a glass of milk. Boil it on a mild flame till one-fourth glass remains. Filter and make two equal parts. Drink one part in the morning and the other in the evening. 2.Warm mustard oil or sesame oil (1 teaspoon) with 3-4 cloves of crushed garlic and 1 tsp of ajwain (carom) seeds until it roasts to a reddish brown colour. Ensure that it does not get burned. Massage this oil on your affected areas. After that do hot fomentation with salt potli (bag).

Your mother is having pain in the groin region. This pain is related to her bones. I advise you to give her proper balanced vegetarian diet. Take fruits and vegetables in daily diet. Take 8 to 10 glasses of water daily. Avoid garlic and red chilly at home. Avoid non veg and eggs. I advise you to get her vitamin d, serum calcium levels done and consult good orthopaedic doctor. I suspect, she is suffering from osteoporosis.
