I'm suffering from left shoulder pain. It seems like the muscle pain. It happens whenever I make arm movements in vertically upward direction or open it up horizontally. Reason could be the gym. Due to this, I'm not able to continue my gym exercises. Second reason could be the sleeping posture. Please suggest. Thanks.

Generalised body pain could be due to different conditions grossly known as polyarthralgia. Is there a recent episode of fever. Do you feel stiffness of hand and feet early morning which usually improves as the day progress. Is there any swelling around wrist elbow or ankle. Answer to these simple questions can help making a diagnosis.

Hi, it's due to postural defects, stress, anxiety, traumatic injury, 80%, cases are due to depression, deformity & stiffness of spine. Smoking, alcohol consumption. Smoking is directly linked with neck & back pain, it causes disc degeneration of vertebrae. Go for yoga and meditation to nourish vertebrae & back muscle, to ease back pain. Go for constant movement of back muscle, joints which makes back muscle & spine, flexible. Nowadays meditation & yoga has become the way of life not an exercise. Tk, homoeo medicine: @ rhus tox 200-6 pills thrice a day. @ arnica mont200-6-6 pills, thrice a day. Avoid, caffeine, nicotine, alcohol, junkfood, cold intake, exposure to cold, scorching sun.

Lumbar Herniated Disc Pain - 3 Hamstring Stretches for it

MD, FIPP
Pain Management Specialist, Kolkata
Lumbar Herniated Disc Pain - 3 Hamstring Stretches for it

The sciatic pain caused due to a lumbar herniated disc can radiate down your legs and may make you immobile. It is quite common for a herniated disc to press against a nearby nerve and inflame, leading to pain radiating along the length of the affected sciatic nerve. For getting relief from lumbar herniated disc pain, you need to become active. Daily hamstring stretches are considered to be an effective way to tackle such pain if you do them regularly.

Here are three important hamstring stretches which will help you in strengthening your hamstring muscles:

  1. Seated chair stretches: This stretch is perfect for people whose mobility is limited or for those who have unusually tight hamstrings. It is carried out in a sitting position. While performing this stretch, you have to sit on a chair with another chair placed across. By resting one foot on the ground and the other on the second chair, you need to straighten your back and lean forward over the leg which is extended. Once you feel a stretch in the upper and rear thigh, you should be in that position for at least 30 seconds. You should switch legs and repeat the stretching exercise thrice for each leg.
  2. Towel hamstring stretch: If you like stretching while lying down, this stretch is an ideal option for you. For performing a towel hamstring stretch, you have to lie down on the floor and keep one leg flat. Tighten your abdominal muscles while you lift the other leg and keep it straight. You should wrap a belt around the elevated leg’s instep and use it for pulling back the leg towards you. Hold the position for around 30 seconds when you feel a stretch.
  3. Wall hamstring stretch: This stretch is for people who find the towel hamstring stretch hard to execute. For such people, extra stability can be attained by taking help of a solid surface such as a door jamb or a wall. You can rest the raised leg against the wall for support. You need to lie on the floor near a wall corner and leave one leg straight while placing the other against the wall. Your hips should be on the floor.

While you do stretches of any kind, you should only stretch as far as you are comfortable. You must not stretch to a point which causes pain. These hamstring stretches are quite safe, but you should avoid them in case of any sudden, acute pain.

At present there is no cure for any of the mucopolysaccharide diseases.Enzyme replacement therapy (ERT)has been approved by the FDA for several of the MPS diseases, but ERT has not been shown to be effective in MPS III. Bone marrow transplants have been tried on individuals with MPS III, but with disappointing results. Gene therapy, chaperone therapy and intrathecal enzyme therapy are a few of the treatments for MPS III where research is ongoing

When walking on the road a stone hit my head because of speeding car and on the right side of my head above my right ear it started bleeding. Bleeding stopped same day. The bruise is not big. Now its dried but my head keeps hurting. Should I need to do a scan or mri.

If you had not had any fainting episode during the hit and no fits after that then scan is not indicated. Probably the pain is due to bruise. See a neurologist if complains persist.

I am a 54 years old male, taking daily evion 400mg on doctor friends advice to prevent muscle cramps. If I do not take for 2 to 3 days that medicine, at the time of getting up iam having muscle cramps in legs. Is there any permanent cure for this.

DNB, MBBS

You may be having low vitamin d or calcium. So get your vitamin d levels done fasting and start calcium supplements. If you are on cholesterol lowering drugs, then they are also a cause of cramps. Low vitamin b12 levels can also sometimes cause cramps so get that tested in your blood as well. Revert back with investigations.

You mean to say that you look lean and thin. It is not a disease. You have to cultivate the habit of exercising everyday and eat healthy food and avoid junk food and all kinds of bad habits. If the need arises then take calcium supplements after checking with a doctor (after a routine checkup).

I have a some compression between L4 and L5 as per MRI for the last about 5 years. During walk (occasionally) I feel some difficulty in walking and take rest or I need to sit for about 5 minutes and than feel normal. Please advice if there is any medicine or physiotherapy ? Pramod

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Pain in the leg can be due to nerve compression in the back or inadequate blood supply to leg due to vessel compression or narrowing of arteries. Your MRI will have to be seen to evaluate amount of compression. If compression is mild, then an arterial and venous Doppler of both lower limbs will help to assess the blood supply to the legs. The treatment depends on the cause of the pain.
