Before advising any treatment, diagnosis must be confirmed. I feel its Rotator cuff tear. If it comes to be so, treatment has to be early because delayed treatment doesn't give good results.

I have back pain and headache for 2 weeks please help me n ans my question.
Hi, as regards your back pain, you may apply any good quality and over the counter pain relief gel. Herbal sprays are better and work faster than gels. Post applying gel, gently apply heat (low to medium as much as you can withstand) on the back side for about 30 to 45 minutes. Also, take care not to do any strenuous physical activities including lifting heavy weights et al. Again, your headache could be because of multiple reasons including dietary, lifestyle, stress, migraine, anxiety owing to personal or professional issues or any other physical problem with you. Do streamline your diet and avoid oily and fried stuff. Consume more of fresh fruits & vegetables and stay hydrated, drink 8 - 10 glasses of water daily. Streamline your lifestyle, exercise (brisk walk) daily for at least 30 minutes, and try reducing your stress levels at work and also at home. You must stay relaxed and de-stress yourself through either prayer, yoga, meditation, deep breathing exercises etc all. Take care of your posture/ ergonomics while at work and also while at home. All the very best and take care.

Pain can be due to many reasons. Get a orthopaedic consultation to find the cause of numbness as it can be pinched nerve and if not diagnosed early can lead to permanent damage. At home try hot or cold for back, gentle strteches

Physiotherapist,
I am 32 year old and I have pain in my left hand and left leg.What can i do?
Hi it can be fibromyalgia. Some test may be required like cervical xray, diabetes, calcium, vitamin d etc. But first it will be good if you visit orthopaedic or physiotherapist personally for clinical examination. Meanwhile take hot water bath twice a day and take healthy and balanced diet. Best wishes.
