Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Considering the gravity of your situation, chronicity of the problem and number of antibiotics already take till now, it is better for you to actually consult someone in person as your swelling/discharging sinus will need a proper examination, cultures and maybe some debridement etc as surgical procedure. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hello, Is there any history of injury or hurt to the area? Any underlying medical condition? Medication: Meantime, take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. And wrap crepe bandage over it. Get back to me thereafter.

Hello, you can apply ayurvedic oil like mahanarayan oil gently on back followed by hot fomentation twice a day. Keep your bowel clear everyday. Backache may be due to many reasons like sitting or sleeping positions, any previous injury or accident, spondylitis, flatulence in abdomen etc. So try to find the reason of it, accordingly it can b treated.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young and your back pain could be muscular, discal etc in nature. You should continue with exercises for your back region, take gentle anti inflammatory medication, ice packs etc. But I would first advice you to consult your cardiologist and see if everything else is fine. 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.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. If her ra factor and anti ccp test both are positive, then it indicates an inflammatory pathology and my advise would be to consult a rheumatologist because it will require a long term supervised care. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Shoulder exercises are essential for you but you need to rule out first why the pain is occurring. Is there any pain in while you are pulling off your parse from your hip pocket? Is the pain is more in the initial range of movement? Is there any pain while sleeping? Can you sleep turning towards the affected side? Please let us know for better guidance.

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.

Make sure you undergo a proper course of vastus medialis obliqus exercise. As long as you do not have regular dislocation of the patella then you do not need surgery. Surgery is only for people where the trochlea (the place where the knee cap is situated) is not well developed or if there is soft tissue problems.

It could be due to cervical spondylosis this is quite a common condition rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days do neck & back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Use of cervical collar will give you relief. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take you will need other supportive medicines also. Do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.
