I have morning stiffness in the low back area for almost 1 year, also when I get up after sitting it takes time for my body to get erect. Sometimes I cannot stand at one place for long time and I start having a tingling pain in my born thighs. Please suggest medicine. Seems to have become a chronic problem. Thanks .

Morning stiffness 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 bio d3 max 1tab odx10days ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days do back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take.

Mild or grade 1 fractures can be treated with rest, medication and braces. Severe fractures will need mri evaluation. Majority of these fractures are a result of osteoporosis which needs to be aggressively treated. Some patients will benefit from procedures such as kyphoplasty.

I have problems with my knee it always starch I have little problem to band my lage. Ana also it was pan full.
Hi. Can you tell me your weight? As knees bear most of the whole body weight! So, if the cause is your weight, then will have to reduce weight and the mode of treatment would also be different. 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. Get back to me thereafter.

You should have to consult some physiotherapist. Or you can go to the nearest yoga classes. You can also use दसमूल क्वाथ् 10 ml with half glass of luck-warm water for pain initially.
