I last few months I am having pain my both heels. Right one is pretty much when I wake up in morning and sometime in daytime as well. I have changed 3 pairs of shoes but not able to get the comfort. Tried to use silicone gel padding in shoes but no benefit. Shall I go for medicated shoes or what. Pain is getting worse and feels like pinching needle. Regards.

Get your vitamin d levels checked and get an x-ray of the neck. If there is pain radiating to the limbs with numbness only then get mri.

I have severe backpain when travelling in long journeys. Doctor suggested using some pillow. Please suggest a suitable solution.

MD - Alternate Medicine, BHMS
Homeopath, Surat
During that pain, just take 1 dose of homoeopathic lactic acid 200 and watch for half hour. If pain does not subside in half hour, tak 2nd dose of it. It will be definitely relieved with 45-50 mins. And use hard quill to sleep. Soft quill will damage your spine curvature which will lead to more pain.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

Kindly show me a photograph of the affected part. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Dear sir Pain in feet can be due to many reasons like frequent change of foot wear ,higher arch in your foot, uric acid increase, overweight etc. As per your history you cn go for contrast bath for your foot ie 4 min dip in hot water n then 1 min dip in ice cold water n repeat it for 10 min. Begin with hot water n end with hot water is rule. When you wake up do ankle toe Movts then place your foot complete on floor. U cn contact us fr further discussion

I have broken my finger I guess, I am guessing it because I do not know its broken or just twisted because every time when I have to press anything even soft laptop button, its producing plenty of pain. I got this while catching a cricket ball. Its been one month since am having this.

FRCS, MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Hyderabad
You probably have a mallet finger. This is probably caused by the cricket ball tearing the tendon attachment to the terminal bone of the finger. You need to wear a mallet splint for 6 weeks to keep the tip straight followed by physiotherapy.

Does Knuckle breaking at neck at regular intervals when I'm feel stressed, will that leads to an disk injury or any problems in future. Usually I keep doing that when I work out in gym.

Try to sleep without pillows-it helps your neck and shoulder muscles to relax properly and maintain a good spine posture.
