I am a 35 year old male, and having right hand and shoulder pain from about 3 months. It started with neck pain, which went down in the center of the back, and then in the right shoulder and then now is in right hand and right shoulder. Its a vibrating pain with sometimes numbness in the fingers and palm. Initially had taken neurokind g prescribed by family physician, when there was no improvement for 1 month, I consulted a neurologist who got the mri scan done and as per the report - screening of cervical spine reveals loss of lordosis with anterior and posterior osteophytosis. Disc dessication noted at all levels. Diffuse disc bulges noted at c3-4, c5-6 and c6-7 (bilateral paramedian) levels causing bilateral foraminal stenosis at c6-7 with bilateral c7 nerve root compression and thecal sac indentation. Central canal and spinal cord appears normal. Incidental finding: mucosal thickening is noted in the bilateral sphenoid sinuses-suggestive of sinusitis. Prescribed maxgalin 75 g one in the night with soft neck collar to be worn for 3 weeks and shoulder exercises. When there was no much improvement nerve conduction study was done. Result - present ncs is suggestive of mild right ulnar sensory axonopathy. Maxgalin 75 increased to two in a day for 2 weeks continuing the soft collar neck. Please advise what should I do?

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 bio d3 max 1tab odx10days 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.

Quadriceps Exercises- Lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core Strengthening Exercise- Straight Leg Raised With Toes Turned Outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams Stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Back pain needs restrictions in gymming and stiffness needs to be avoided. Some light exercises may be allowed which can be best demonstrated by your trainer or physiotherapist. Yoga however is better choice if you need flexible body and relaxed back muscles without backache. Herbals should be supplemented to look younger along with good, balanced, green diet.

This may be a muscular strain. Your muscle is weak and that painful trigger point will appear only in conditions where you are fatigued or you have carried some weight on your shoulders like bag etc and also after gym workouts or exercises. Simple treatment for this is to apply an ice pack over the affected area for next 7 days twice a day and then it will be fine.

Hello doctor I have sagged breasts and I'm not married yet. Is there a solution to make them stiff.

Advanced Aesthetics, M.Ch - Plastic Surgery, MS - General Surgery, MBBS
Cosmetic/Plastic Surgeon, Indore
Breast reduction and lifting surgery will reduce the size and tighten them. O the best of our knowledge no medicines or creams work to increase the breast size. It is a day care procedure and you are discharge in a very short time from the hospital and it brings about an instant change in breast size and self esteem. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication to give the results. No one wants surgery unless it is necessary. There is no medication to give the results. No creams or pills actually work except psychologically. Surgery is the only answer. The surgery is almost painless. We need to examine the patient to know what is wanted and what can be done and to work out how much, when, where, etc

Go for ayurveda's panchkarma therapy - we have many option for you - kati basti (specialised panchakar, a procedure for backpains), localised massgae with herbal oils, localised medicated steam, pottali massage. Continue these procedures for atleast 15 days. Regular oiling of the joint will improve the lubrication also. These procedures will relax your back muscles and give strength to your nerves and muscles of back. Also start some yogic exercises - tadasana, dhanurasan, halasana along with these therapies. This will greatly help. Please avoid pushing / pulling heavy objects, long sittings, long two-wheeler drives. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking.. Please update with your valuable feedback after 15 days.\

Sir, i am having back pain from 15 days beside kidney. So what will be the solution for this?
Back ache can be due to several reasons. It can be muscular, related to disc degeneration or prolapse, joint irritation or nerve pinching. Most common is muscle pain due to tight and weak back and abdominal muscles. Keep a positive attitude, focus more on keeping good posture especially when sitting for long hours, use lumbar support. Take frequent breaks and stretch in between. Try changing sleeping habits. Stretching and strengthening exercises for low back and abdominal muscles will help reduce pain. Try hot or cold therapy as tolerated.
