Sir, I am a boy of 20years old. I have pain in right leg. I have been very difficulty. What should I do? Please tell ...
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. Best wishes.

Hello lybrate user, - better to adopt simple neck exercise to avoid stiffening and relax muscles. - you can also apply medicated oil like ksheerabala taila which strengthen your neck muscles and bones also relax the muscles. - also better to change the position of neck during work - by adopting preventive measures further progress can be avoided. Thank you.

I m 28 years old male. My weight is 54 kgs. My height is 5.5 ft. I am having severe pain in hip joint since more than one year. And sometimes this pain even comes to my foot and then it is impossible to walk even a step. Kindly suggest the solution for the same.

If the pain is in the back of the hip the problem is likely to be a disc issue. If the pain is in the front of the hip, that is in the groin region it could be a of the hip joint. Get xrays done for the hip joint and lumbar spine and mail them to me in a private message.

First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket . And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back . you may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * Gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * Surya Namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * In diet vegetable protein of cereal , B complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

My wife is 30 years old and she has AVN in her right hip. 3years back we meet Dr. he had informed us that its deteriorated to Arthritis and we should do the hip replacement surgery when the pain will get unbearable. My wife is against the surgery. Off late the pain has increased and she has started to limp more. Are there any medicine which she can take to over come this pain? Is there any way around without the surgery?

DM - Rheumatology, MD - General Medicine
Rheumatologist, Mumbai
If her hip is bad its best to get surgery for long term. More you delay it more difficult surgery can get. Also with whatever medicines you take you will never get relief as much as surgery. She will be in continuous pain and it will affect her life. Better to get one time job and finish it.

Sir I am suffering from dvt last 4 year, (right leg ) now I recover my inr 3. 2, but swelling of leg is not recover, please give me an advice

M B B S, M. D (Internal Medicine)
General Physician, Nellore
I think you have misunderstood the purpose of your treatment. The swelling is just a cosmetic problem. The treatment being given is to prevent any further progression or recurrence of your dvt. Dvt can be life threatening if the clot dislodges from the lung and reaches the lung vessels where it can block blood supply causing pulmonary embolism which is life threatening. That is the whole purpose of the treatment. The swelling is going to remain. It will not cause you any physical harm. You have to adjust to it.

Orthopedist,
I have backpain for last month what medicines me accept?
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are many causes of pain in lower back region. It can be due to faulty posture, related to weak muscles, issues with intervertebral disc, narrowing of spinal canal, any bony instability besides many other, so accurate diagnosis is the key to proper management of the condition. You will have to elaborate your problem as to a detailed discussion of your back pain which means duration of pain and mode of onset. I would also like to ask you if it is associated with any leg pain or any other neurological symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias (electrical shock like abnormal sensations) or any weakness in limbs. Please also tell me about any associated symptoms like fever, weight loss etc. What medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. 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.
