I am a 24 year old male and have backache for last 2 year. What should I do?
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. 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.

I have been over masturbating from last 8 years and now I feel pain in my joints, I also feel sounds coming from them if I stretch them I feel more pain and sounds coming from them. I am 22 years old and weigh 87 kg. My height is 5 feet 6 inches. Please tell me how I can get rid of this problem.

Mostly the joint pain and sounds are not related to your masturbation, consult an ortho for the same, Masturbation is a very healthy form of sexual outlet, do not feel guilty about it. Nearly 99% of men and more than 60% of women masturbate. It starts from adolescence and goes on in some people even till death. The pleasure (orgasm) from masturbation is said to be unique from sexual intercourse. In men, most of the liquid contains only water and some fructose and hormones. Hence it does not drain your energy. Many equate masturbation/ seminal fluid loss to lack of energy, impotency and so on. Many quacks, religious heads and pseudo healers also propagate the idea that masturbation is a disorder/ and wrongful behavior and instill fear on the mind of innocent men and women (we can see posters in train and bus stand, offering help for this behavior). Consult a psychiatrist, if you have excessive masturbation guilt or compulsive masturbation. Compulsive masturbation is when a person continues with frequent masturbation neglecting his/ her other work like education, job or social obligations. In fact masturbation reduces the sexual tension and helps focus on task at hand better.

How to control hyperuricemia?

MD - Pathology
General Physician,
Stop all non vegetarian proteins. Minimise dairy products. Decrease pulses like rajmah chane and sabut daal. Take dhuli daals and vegetables except beans. If diet control doesn't decrease uric acid to desired levels take tablet zyloric 100 once daily. Can be gradually increased to 300 mg per day. But dietary precaution is the first thing.

Ozone therapy has no role proven in frozen shoulder. There are no conclusive studies. Ozone has role only in disc problem at the moment. It may be under study and if you wish to give it a try to know if it works or not, it's your wish. If its primary frozen shoulder, treatment is exercises and injection, if no relief, then arthroscopic release. If its secondary frozen shoulder, treatment depends upon primary pathology.
