Requires examination and investigation in detail. Presently investigations suggested: hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid vit d xray of the affected part. Anyway you may try sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head do hot fomentation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform

Apply hot fomentation twice daily. Avoid bending in front. Postural correction- sit tall, walk tall. Extension exercises x 15 times x twice daily - lying on tummy, take left arm up for 3 seconds, then bring it down, right arm up for 3 seconds, bring down. Bring right leg up, hold for 3 seconds, bring it down. Then right leg up and hold for 3 seconds and bring it down. Repeat twice a day- 10 times. Bhujang asana -- lie flat on your stomach, keeping the palms out, bend the neck backward, take a deep breath and while holding it for 6 seconds, raise the chest up. Release breath and relax your body. Repeat the exercise 15 times twice daily. Core strengthening exercises- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Hi I can understand your problem 1) avoid activities that make your symptoms worse 2) apply ice packs 3) start physiotherapy treatment as electrotherapy will reduce pain inflammation 4) exercise and mannual therapy will help in painfree movement. In next consultation describe your problem in detail and do share related reports and prescription if you have. Best wishes.

Burning and pain in the foot may be due to vitamin B 12 deficiency or due to Diabetes, however as you are only 23 now I don't think you are diabetic. So, please have Vitamin B 12 shots weekly once for 4-5 weeks I think you can get rid of it.

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.

Orthopedist,
I am 20 years old I have leg pain what should I do?
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Actually pain at calf/leg region can be due to many reasons, commonly it is muscular in nature but it can also be due to tendons, nerves, blood vessels etc. My advise to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - ice packs application intensively with elevation of your limbs at night - take a short course of anti-inflammatory medication as per your body's suitability - stop your physical activity till pain completely subsides - intensive physical therapy, training and proper muscle conditioning once pain has subsided - slow resumption of physical activities with proper pre activity warm up and stretching of muscles and short increments in duration of physical activity each day as per pain tolerance. - we will get some blood tests for you - serum vitamin d and serum potassium levels, esr and crp once you have all these reports then you can contact me as I can advise you for proper supplementation 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.

Heel pain as in your situation is most likely due to plantar fascitis. Injections given for it give relief for some time. The treatment mostly is conservative and lifestyle modifications to achieve maximum functionality with minimum pain. Follow these lifestyle changes religiously to get benefit. 1. Reduce body weight as obesity will aggravate the stress on heel. 2. Avoid exercises like running / walking on hard surfaces. Stop such activities when you start developing pain. 3. Roll your feet on bottle of cold water for 20 mins 4 times a day or can apply ice pack. 4. Use shoes with silicone sole inserts. 5. Do calf muscle and heel stretches daily. 6. Avoid prolonged standing or sitting. 7. Use night splint to keep foot flexed at night. Stop using it once pain is relieved. 8. Use analgesics like Ibuprofen for decreasing pain and inflammation. With proper lifestyle changes as above 90 % patients have relief and functionality. Only 10% patients would require surgical intervention like plantar fascia release or gastrocnemius recession.

I want to try Platelets Rich Plasma (PRP) to heal my Inguinal Hernia as recommended by Dr. Though PRP is used by dermatologists, Dentists and orthopedic surgeons for conditions other than IH. P.S. I want to get in touch with someone who has practical experience of PRP.

Inguinal hernia is due to weakness of abdominal muscles. It is common in your age. Platelet rich plasma is for platelet deficiency. Both are unrelated. You must have been recommended PRP for fixing your platelet count. Only after your platelets come to normal can you be operated for hernia. Surgery is the definitive treatment. Hernia surgery is not a major operation. Please get in touch with your doctor again to clear any confusion about PRP.

MPT - Orthopedic Physiotherapy

Pain and swelling in joints could be a symptom of many things. you need to be evaluated by an expertise such as an orthopedician who would advice you to undergo a battery of tests such as Esr, cbc, CRP, Rh factr etc to rule out conditions like rheumatoid arthritis and certain inflammatory conditions affectng the joints.and correlate clinically...it also depends if the pain n swelling is symmetrical or not.

Hello Doctor, I'm 38. Since last 1yr I have problem in the right leg (calf muscles to back of the knee) due to which I am unable to sit down. Took all sorts of treatment but invain. I'm a hypothyroid. Please suggest.

M.P.T
Physiotherapist,
As you have a history of hypothyroidism start taking a good multivitamin&methylcobalamin+neurobion composition. Along with stretching exercises of calf with leg exes+compression therapy. Ankle toe movements &contrast bath will help u more. Can take wellwoman 1 tab daily& nervejin-p 1 tab daily at night after meal. Nervejin may cause some drowsiness so preferred only at night.
