It could be due to cervical spondylosis this 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 ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days do neck & back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Use of cervical collar will give you relief. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take you will need other supportive medicines also. Do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.

FROZEN SHOULDER:

Most frozen shoulder treatment involves controlling shoulder pain and preserving as much range of motion in the shoulder as possible.
Medications

Over-the-counter pain relievers, such as aspirin and ibuprofen (Advil, Motrin IB, others), can help reduce pain and inflammation associated with frozen shoulder. In some cases, your doctor may prescribe stronger pain-relieving and anti-inflammatory drugs.
Therapy
A physical therapist can teach you range-of-motion exercises to help recover as much mobility in your shoulder as possible. Your commitment to doing these exercises is important to optimize recovery of your mobility.
Surgical and other procedures

Most frozen shoulders get better on their own within 12 to 18 months. For persistent symptoms, your doctor may suggest:

Steroid injections. Injecting corticosteroids into your shoulder joint may help decrease pain and improve shoulder mobility, especially in the early stages of the process.
Joint distension. Injecting sterile water into the joint capsule can help stretch the tissue and make it easier to move the joint.
Shoulder manipulation. In this procedure, you receive a general anesthetic, so you'll be unconscious and feel no pain. Then the doctor moves your shoulder joint in different directions, to help loosen the tightened tissue.
Surgery. Surgery for frozen shoulder is rare, but if nothing else has helped, your doctor may recommend surgery to remove scar tissue and adhesions from inside your shoulder joint. Doctors usually perform this surgery with lighted, tubular instruments inserted through small incisions around your joint (arthroscopically).

Keep ice which will reduce the inflammation and that will there by reduce the pain Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired that can also be reason to have frequent pain in the whole body especially in the back bone. Once the oxygen levels in the blood comes down it automatically leads to improper functioning of the joints and muscles. It is also due to vacuum created in the joints as once the body lacks oxygen automatically the body becomes arid and that is one reason to get frequent pain the body ie. back bone. The hip muscles become tired thereby straining in a day with any physical activity might lead to back bone pain.. And also wear MCR chappals which will help you to prevent the weight falling on the hip while standing.

Hello. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight (even while sitting or standing), avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). Always select a chair with proper back support and hand-rest. (Excessive sitting or standing is to be avoided as well don’t carry much weight on shoulders). Apart from these, stress could be the major cause of pains! Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body.

How to lose arm fat fast
 
Weight lifting –

This is one of the most common exercises that are used for reducing arm fat. Just pick up any household item to use as your weight. There are so many things that can serve this purpose that you actually don’t need dumbbells. A 2 liters water bottle is a great way to lose arm fat fast at home. Hold the bottle in your hands and lift it above the head, while keeping your arms straight. If possible, take your hands behind your back as much as you can. Keep your arms as close to your ears as you can.

How to lose arm fat with pushups:

If you want toned arms, then push ups are one of the best ways to help you. Push ups not only help you to shed the extra kilos off your arms, they also help strengthen the muscles. One needs to master the balancing act in order to do push ups successfully. One can perfect it only after practice. Most people find it difficult at first, but with time, they are able to do it. One should refrain from balancing on the toes and hands. It is advised that you balance on your knees and hands. You can start with a set of 6-10 push ups at a time and as your stamina improves, you can increase the number of push ups. Make sure that you don’t over-exert yourself.

 Exercise in circular motion –

In order to lose arm fat, you can exercise your arms in circular motion. Exercising the arms in circular motion helps you to burn a lot of calories and make your arms look tones and lean. This is the best way to lose arm fat fast. This also helps to strengthen your shoulders and works on biceps and triceps. Make sure that you exercise every day for at least 45 minutes.

Jumping with a rope –

Skipping rope 

Also helps to remove excess fat from arms as well as various other parts of the body, such as the legs and shoulders. You can vary your speed and the number of times you skip. The more you skip, the faster you lose arm fat. Most women would have done this as an exercise or played with a skipping rope during their childhood. This traditional game is really helpful in toning and shaping the arms. Skipping with a rope involves continuous circular motion of the arms and hence is very helpful. Apart from your arms, it also helps in trimming down your belly, thigh.

How to lose weight from hips and thigh
Scissors –

This fun aerobics exercise helps to lose arm fat really fast. Considered as the best exercise to lose weight and a great cardio workout, it makes your body look like a scissors. You need to open your arms and legs just like a scissors. Stand straight and lift your arms to the height of your shoulders in front. Now stretch the arms to one side and bring them to the front. Your right hand should overlap the left hand and then change vice versa. Do this exercise at least ten times daily and repeat thrice a day.

Arm and leg lift –

In this exercise you need to lift your leg and the opposite arm and then change. While stretching your limbs, you must try to hold your body in this position for some time before resting your body. This exercise is really helpful in losing arm fat. It has been included in the ectomorph workout plans since it helps to promote better muscle growth. It helps to tone the arms, strengthen the legs and arms and is also very beneficial for the spine. It helps to enhance your posture and balance.

Rotation of shoulder and palm –

This is a very easy exercise that can help to lose arm fat. This is not a very high intensity exercise and requires very slow yet controlled movement of the arms. The major muscles of the arms and shoulders are completely engaged in this exercise. To begin, you need to stand with your feet placed about one foot apart. Now raise your arms to shoulder height to the side and keep your fingers together. Now face your palms towards the floor and now rotate the shoulders, 10 times and then rotate your arms and palms 10 times. For best results, rotate each arm at least 20-30 times at a stretch.

By and far, exercise cannot be substituted by any other method to lose arm fat. However, you can make certain minor changes in your daily routine, in order to avoid gaining arm fat. These include tracking your calories every day and avoiding unnecessary snacking between meals. Restrict yourself to a minimum of calories so that you don’t gain excess fat and/or muscle. Do not indulge in binge eating and avoid missing a meal. Get rid of the ugly fat such as sugar candies, lollies, fried and junk foods and refined sugar. Eat a healthy and balanced diet.

I am suffering from ankylosis spondylitis and today I was having severe pain in my neck just behind the ears. Why is this happening to me. My entire previous generation didn't had this incurable disease. Why me? What did I do wrong? Why am I suffering so much. I used to go to the gym every day but for the past 1 and half years my whole life has been changed just because of this chronic disease. Oh my God what should I do. I can't tolerate this anymore. I have been consuming sazo 1000 for the past 8 months and everything was quite normal (i. E reduced pain) but since I left my medications the pain has started again. Do I need to consume painkillers for my entire life. Am I going to be normal again. I don't know what to do? Is there anyone who can help me. I would really really appreciate it. Thanks.

lybrate-user AS is arthritis where long term inflammation of the joint. The cause of ankylospondylosis is unknown. It is believed to be combination of hereditary and environmental factors. More than 90 % of those affected have specific human leucocyte antigen known as HLA B 27. Homeopathy can cure this case or can palliate the condition to greater extent. It should be treated by experienced homeopath who take details of the case and select proper medicines and give the doses in judicious manner. If you have any difficult, you can ask me through Lybrate.

I have back bone pain. What's the reason for that can you please tell me the solution.
Most common cause of back pain is weakness of back muscles and core muscles. Bad Posture and Vitamin D deficiency are also very common and usually there are all these present. You need to strengthen your back muscles. Posture modification Do not lift weight Use hot fomantation twice daily Don't bend forward Some medicines will help.
