Hi lybrate-user, These home remedies for shoulder pain could be the trick for finding relief. 1. Sleep - Try a supported sleep position. Lay on your good side and place a pillow in front of your body. Rest your bad shoulder on this pillow for support. 2. Stand (And Sit) Up Straight - This is particularly important if you spend your days sitting at a desk. When sitting, try placing a small pillow or cushion behind your lower back. Improving your lower back support will, in turn, improve your upper body posture. To improve your standing posture, pay special attention to how you hold your shoulder blades. Made sure they are down and back. 3. Epsom Salt - Fill your bath tub with warm to hot water, and pour in two cups of epsom salt. Mix thoroughly until the salt dissolves. Get in the bath and submerge your shoulder. Repeat three times weekly. For an added benefit, use lavender epsom salts. Lavender epsom salts make a for great stress relief remedy! 4. Turmeric - Turmeric is anti-inflammatory by nature, making it a great home remedy for swelling and pain. Try mixing two tablespoons of turmeric and one tablespoon of coconut oil to make a potent anti-inflammatory paste. Apply to the shoulder in pain twice daily. 5. Neck Release - Sit up straight. Slowly lower your chin to your chest, as if nodding yes, until you feel a stretch in the back of your neck. You can lean your head to the side opposite your bad shoulder for an extra stretch. Hold up to one minute in each direction. Repeat 3-5 times. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

If you still have calf muscle pain kindly check your blood for cbc and electrolytes as low potassium levels cause typical calf muscle pain.

Hi lybrate-user, first I will adviced to take pediatricion opinion about deficiency. As this is summer generally we feel tired, still give healthy, protinious and nutricious diet. Like friuts, green leafy vegetbles. Friuts juices made with water not with milk. For calcium add milk, milky products panner, home made butter.

You may be having tennis elbow or arthritis of the elbow. You can take crocin 500 to relieve your pain. Apply hot bag to ease your pain. Pain relieving gel will also help. If the pain persists you need to see your local orthopedic doctor.

Hello dear this problem related to shoulder and neck. Some time only shoulder is responsible but many times cervical also. So for clinical correction you have to consult with a good orthopaedic doctor. Before it you can use hot fermentation to arm and shoulders also stop heavy intance work. Don't sleep on the painful shoulder side. Go for physiotherapy treatment where use ift and ultrasound therapy. May you will get cure in few days. Best of luck.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am dr akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. The information which I gather from your question is that you have been tested as hla b27 positive. As you have mentioned there are multiple conditions in which it can be tested as positive but most common is ankylosing spondylitis, other associations have different symptoms as well. This is a genetically linked disease hence as of now there is no permanent cure for it, but new medications are available which help in disease control. You need a very active lifestyle with intensive regular physical therapy, take adequate calcium and vitamin d supplementation you also need to be in touch of a rheumatologist as it needs a long term supervised care. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena
