You are too young to have pain in hip and inability to stand. Please consult an orthopaedic doctor to find the cause. Physiotherapy treatment can help decrease pain and strengthen your hip so you will be able to walk longer and pain free. Good luck.

It requires detailed investigation and examination. Preliminary investigations suggested: hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid vit d urine r/e x-ray of the affected part. Anyway it may be tried 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.

I have hiatus hernia and my valve is become loose so I feel very burning sensations after meal for 3/4 hours and this burning feeling goes to urinary track also. Please advice.

MBBS, Diploma In Orthopaedics (D. Ortho)
Orthopedist, Lucknow
Consult a gastroenterologist. Diet regulation, avoiding heavy meals, spicy food, rabeprazole tabs are usual measures. An endoscopic examination is indicated with cytological studies. Get urine tested for routine and culture sensitivity to rule out separate urinary tract infection. Depending on grade of hiatus, sometimes surgeons consider surgery as a remedy.

I Have constipation from 1-2 years how to cure it? Is it a symptom in hernia .Please tell.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine), Certified in Evidence Based Diabetes Management, MNAMS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Kolkata
I Have constipation from 1-2 years how to cure it?
Is it a symptom in hernia .Please tell.
Thank you for the query constipation can arise due to a number of reason. Inadequate water intake and low fibre diet are important causes. It is therefore essential to drink at least 2 litres of water per day. High fibre diet may help in relieving constipation. Since your constipation is prolonged, I would suggest you to go for a thyroid profile as hypothyroidism can cause constipation. Some medications like oral iron tablets can cause constipation. Hernia, if obstructed can cause constipation, usually that is associated with pain. However, prolonged constipation may give rise to other complications like piles and fissures. Hernia may also arise due to prolonged straining during defecation.

Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. 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. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Inform after 10 days.
