6 ways to ease neck pain
#####################
Don’t stay in one position for too long.
Make some ergonomic adjustments. Position your computer monitor at eye level so you can see it easily. Use the hands-free function on your phone or wear a headset. Prop your touch-screen tablet on a pillow so that it sits at a 45° angle, instead of lying flat on your lap.
If you wear glasses, keep your prescription up to date.
Don’t use too many pillows.
Know your limits.
Get a good night’s sleep.

I'm 39 years old male. I have a peculiar pain in my legs. The exact area of pain is achillies, just above the" aedhi. The pain is untolerable. I take" nucoxia 60" once daily to avoid the pain. Its almost two years that the pain has not been diagnosed.

Hello, The site of pain you just mentioned made me think it as retrocalcaneal bursitis or calcaneal spur. Pls get the xrays done first. X ray both heel lat view. Picture will be clear after that. Feel free to share any past records with me to guide you further on treatment.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have actually mentioned radiation of pain from shoulder to whole of upper limb. Can you also tell me whether you have any neck pain also? do you also have any other neurological symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias (electrical shock like abnormal sensations) or any weakness in limbs. 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.

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).

Crp is c reactive protein and is indicative if inflammation/infection present anywhere in the body. Since heart tests are normal and you at 21 are on bp medicines, one sided swelling on leg is due to a local cause, and it can be some infection. Get an x ray done and start a course of antibiotics.

Hi I can understand your problem. # relax & stay positive. # take hot and cold fomentation. # learn posture care exercise. # use lumber support. # take break every 20 minutes. # do strengthening exercise of back and core muscles not all back pains are same. Do share investigation reports if you have any.

Simple management is very helpful to this problem. 1st- do not sit in your chair all day, get up every 20 min and stretch. 2nd- watch your posture. 3rd- watch your weight. 4th- do some yoga like (bharadvajasana, dhanurasana, viparita karani) 5th- take vitamin d rich diet like (fish, yolks, cheese, milk, and sunshine).
