Dengue has four different strains. So if you get infected by one strain type then the possibility is that you can get affected again by a different strain. However this time around the dengue outbreak is not as worse as compared to last year. Plain viral fever is on the rise and mimics symptoms of dengue. Get yourself tested properly to rule out all possibilities. Take plenty of fluids.

I am 50 years old, I have lower back pain ever since I was 10-12 years old, in the early stage I consulted doctors and they said that it will gradually reduce after marriage, but nothing like that happened and the pain was constently increasing. Today my pain is constant and I feel dizzy and start swetting if I stand at a place for more than 2-3 minutes. Normally I don't take any medicin, but if I feel that the pain is un bearable I take diclomax - 50 tablet, this happens once in abloom you can say 1 tablet per month, because I avoid taking pills I feel its better to bear the pain rathan than being adict to medicins. Can you suggest any other option rathar than medicin for relief of this pain, sometimes I use back ache belt while travelling anf while i am working in kitchen.

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. 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.

Do stretching exercises for heel and tendo achilles. Do it by standing on stair with just forefoot on steps and heels free. Then bring your heel down towards floor as much as possible. This will help you and you will feel better in a month.

I am 47 years old I have a problem in walking I am unable to stand long time and I have back pain, in L4.
I suggest you follow the below for your condition: take mag phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and ice packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user, I appreciate you seeking help for your mother. Her symptoms may be due to arthritis. I would advise that you consult a rheumatologist in person who can clinically examine, and recommend treatment as would deem appropriate in her case. Simultaneously, she should keep her diet and lifestyle streamlined, de-stress/ exercise daily and stay relaxed. She may take help from a physiotherapist who can train her exercises to keep the joints flexible and ways to do her daily tasks that easier on her joints. She should protect herself from cold, and wear warm clothing as diseases like arthritis/ rheumatoid arthritis worsen with cold. A luke warm shower is preferable in this case, and frequent exposure to cold water is best avoided. Hope this helps. Do take care and all the very best. Sincerely

I have heel pain from last 12 months. Please suggest me home remedies or medicine.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Although there can be many causes for heel pain like spurs, fascial inflammation, infection, trauma etc but normally plantar fascitis is the most common cause especially if there is no history of any injury or any s/s of inflammation or infection like swelling, skin redness etc. This kind of pain is usually due to inflammation of your heel fascia. It is chronic pain which get aggravated especially when you walk more and is better with rest. Treatment modalities are aimed at relieving inflammation of the fascia, like ice packs, physical therapy, footwear modification and anti-inflammatory therapy. 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.
