I am 25, my left knee seems to be a kind of weird. Sometimes I get sudden pain during walking. If I'm running or walking fast, it gives some sudden pain and movement near the knee. Movement meaning, it feels as if the knee is going to break. I had this pain since a year. Earlier it was normal, but these days its getting often..Can you help me out here?

Dear lybrate-user, At age 70, the body recuperation declines, there is muscle mass and bone loss. Injections of calcium may help, but only if her digestion is able to take it and also, if she is consuming adequate fats, vitamins to ensure digestion of these injections. Change her diet to increase fresh vegetables and fruit. Avoid besan, brinjals, rajma etc from her diet that will cause further digestive strain. Give her mineral rich grains like ragi, jowari. Wheat (roti) is also very diffivult to digest. Give butter milk. Regards.

I am 32 year old. I am pregnant. Starts 5th month of pregnancy. I am suffering from vomiting and leg pain problem.

MBBS, DGO (cal)
General Physician,
Madam, pregnancy related problems, like many others, can not be solved without seeing the patient. Usually doxylamine-pyridoxine (10 mg /10 mg) combination in the morning in empty stomach with little water helps. Then start your day with some dry food like a piece of dry bread. Repeat the tab if you require but restrict it within 2 tabs / day. Take folic acid / folvite 5 mg - 1 daily after bf, shelcal 500 - 1 tab just before breakfast. Iron+bcomplex - 1 cap after dinner daily. Hope these shall reduce your vomiting. It should go within 10/15 more days. But remember you must consult your obstetrician as soon as possible. I have written only supplements what is required in normal pregnancy.

Breathing difficulty may cause you to increase your respiratory rate to maintain adequate oxygen in body but this increased rate can wash out excess carbon dioxide from body acutely which can precipitate your other symptoms.

Ayurvedic Treatment For Arthritis!

Ayurvedic Treatment For Arthritis!

Inflammation and resultant pain in the joints are usually the basic tenets of Arthritis. This joint disorder can be painful and often, a debilitating one. It can also make the joints stiff. There are many ways of dealing with this problem, but with Ayurveda, one can get to the root cause of the ailment and its presence. This helps in taking a well rounded holistic approach towards treating it with ancient know how that revolves around herbs and other natural substances which have great medicinal value, lifestyle changes, diet, exercise and Yoga, oil massages, and other methods. Arthritis is known as Sandhivata in Ayurvedic jargon.

Read on to find out how Ayurveda can help in dealing with Arthritis.

  • Herbs: One can make use of various herbs that contain Linoleic Acid to help in providing lubrication to the joints so as to prevent pain and stiffness. These herbs include Borage seed oil which is extracted from Borage seed, Evening Primrose oil, Blackcurrant seed oil, Capsaicin, Curcumin, Feverfew, Flaxseed oil and a standard Ayurvedic concoction that combines Ashwagandha, Gugulla, ginger, cumin and haldi or turmeric. These substances can help in treating the joints that are suffering from the pain of Arthritis.
  • Diet: In Ayurveda, to treat ailments like Arthritis, it is usually recommended that a patient should start by flushing out the body toxins from within. Diet is one of the ways in which this can be done. A detoxification diet to clean the colon would be one of the foremost ways of doing a cleanse. Further, in one's daily diet, there should be a good dose of vegetables, fruits and other juices. Also, one must have plenty of herbs and spices, which can be used to season the food. Curd should generally be avoided and garlic should be used liberally. The various properties that help in an inside out cleanse that will help the system function in a better manner so that the treatment of ailments is also effectively supported.
  • Exercise: In Ayurveda, a certain amount of daily exercise, which spans at least 45 minutes to one hour, is a must. A pattern of healthy eating, restful sleep and exercise is what usually helps in treating ailments like Arthritis. For this ailment specifically, light exercise like walking is recommended. Various Yoga asanas that involve sitting, standing, balancing and lying down poses as well as restful poses will also help in treating knee, shoulder and lower back pain specifically. Also, mustard oil massages can help in reducing the pain.

These are the few ways in which Ayurveda can help Arthritis patients live a more normal life with minimal pain. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Ayurveda.

My left ankle is pain in 1year, medicine and silicon pad is not effective, now what I do?

Fellowship in Neurological Rehabilitation, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
Hi, A common cause of ankle pain is a sprain, but a lot of other causes can lead to ankle pain. Consult a orthopedician or physiotherapist to have an accurate diagnosis. Advice: *Do Hot or cold or contrast bath: alternating cold and hot water bath with a ratio of 1: 2 mins (Like 2 min hot and one min cold water). * Avoid standing for long hours and walking bare foot. * Lose weight if you are overweight. •Do stretching of the muscles that support the ankle like calf muscle stretch. *Avoid sports and activities requiring high impact ground landing or stress foot like lawn tennis or basket ball or football specially without proper conditioning. *Make sure that shoes fit you properly. *Work on strengthening, balance and do agility exercises under physiotherapist supervision. Thanks and get well soon!

You are overweight and take steps to reduce at once. People take pride in telling they work for long hours, but spend very little time for one self. Do not eat junk foods, aerated drinks, maida related food etc. Chew the food well and swallow. No fast food please go for a brisk walk for 30 minutes without fail in the morning. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Also take calcium tablets for a limited period 2 months consult after 5 days
