Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- 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.

Sitting straight at 90 : Myth or Truth

Fellowship in Neurological Rehabilitation, BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Gurgaon
Sitting straight at 90 : Myth or Truth

If you ask people what the ideal sitting posture is, most if not all will reflexively offer some variation of 'sit up straight at 90. Or keep your back straight.' but the ideal sitting posture is a variable one or constanly changing one.

Frequent changes in sitting position: leaning the seat back while keeping feet flat on the floor, sitting back and propping your legs up on the desk, or crossing your legs. The real goal then should be to prevent any given structure or tissue from bearing the load of sitting for too long, that can be accomplished by regularly shifting position. If you are sitting so rigidly upright that it's effortful, you will be in an unnatural position that will increase the pressure on back and fatigue your back structures.

Finally, do not forget to take some relief from sitting altogether. Roughly once per hour, it is helpful to stand up, gently stretch your arms towards the ceiling, and take a deep breath.
Take care.

I am suffering from diabetes for last two years which medicine I take for joint pain problem.
Are you taking any medications for diabetes? if no, then uncontrolled diabetes also causes joint pain. It should be controlled first. Regarding joint pain, this occurs due to various reasons, like osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis or gout. Get yourself diagnosed first then only take medicine. Some common remedies are:- if you are having pain with stiffness, then take 1. Singhnaad guggulu 4 tab bd along with hot water 2. Castor oil 20 ml with hot water at night. If pain along with burning sensation:- 1. Kaishore guggulu 4 tab bd 2. Mix satva giloy 5gms plus suranjaan 10gms and take 1/4 tsf two times a day if only pain, then apply some oil and massage followed by hot fomentation. Get well soon.

Hi! Seems that you have injured yourself a lot. Ligament injury is graded into 3 degrees. 1st is complete tear of the ligament, which solution is Surgery. 2nd and 3rd grade injuries are partial tears which can be managed with immobilisation of the involved joint, no weight bearing, rest, Cold packs and definetely PHYSIOTHERAPY. No other alternative other than exercises. Meet an orthopaedician to the earliest.

I am 24 year old male with sudden short vague preauricular pain, what could be the cause.

Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Since you have mentioned sudden occurrence of this pre auricular pain, it could be from a temporo mandibular joint, the best management can be done by a maxillofacial surgeon, or if there is none, then a general surgeon because a lot of causes of such pain can be due to oral causes. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

I am feeling feverish and some time vomiting and I am feeling pain in my left hand and I am not feeling well.

AUTLS, CCEDM, MD - Internal Medicine, MBBS
General Physician, Faridabad
I am feeling feverish and some time vomiting and I am feeling pain in my left hand and I am not feeling well.
Fever is not considered medically significant until body temperature is above 100.4 F (38 C). Fever serves as one of the body's natural defences against bacteria and viruses which cannot live at a higher temperatures. Also, the body's defence mechanisms seem to work more efficiently at a higher temperature -Fevers of 104 F (40 C) or higher may be dangerous and demand immediate treatments like: -Acetaminophen (dolo-650 mg) twice or thrice can be used to lower a fever . Aspirin should not be used for fever in children/ adolescents or during a viral illness. -Wear loose fitting clothes and don’t overdress. Overdressing can cause temperature to rise further. -Tepid water (85 F [30 C]) baths may help bring down a fever -The body should be cooled with a wet sponge. -A fever can cause severe dehydration. Drink plenty of fluids.. Have citrus fruits, particularly Vitamin C rich ones like mausami, Amla juice etc. -Take light and easily digestible home cooked meals .avoid outside food -Wash hands frequently with soap and water especially after returning from public places or public transport. -Further therapy depends on the cause of fever like urinary infection/typhoid or malaria/dengue infection and the accompanying symptoms that need to be investigated and treated accordingly

Nerve Pain - 7 Ways You Can Control it

MD, FIPP
Pain Management Specialist, Kolkata
Nerve Pain - 7 Ways You Can Control it

How To Control Nerve Pain?

Nerve pain or peripheral neuropathy, as it is medically known, is characterized by pain, numbness and weakness that arise out of nerve damage. This pain is usually restricted to the feet and the hands.

What are the common causes?

Diabetes is the most common cause for this condition. However, other causes, such as injuries, infections and prolonged exposure to certain toxins can also trigger nerve pain.

How can you control nerve pain?

Nerve pain can be managed and taken care of at home taking into consideration the points that have been mentioned below:

  1. Topical Painkillers: Certain over the counter ointments and creams can help relieve nerve pain. These medications act as local anesthetics; that is they numb the area of the pain. Capsaicin, a derivative of chili peppers, is one of the major ingredients used in these medicines. Others use botanical oils as the major ingredients.

  2. Painkillers: There are painkillers available OTC which can curb nerve pain. However, painkillers such as ibuprofen, aspirin and acetaminophen do not really work well for severe pain of the nerves.

  3. Supplements: The lack of Vitamin B12 is considered to be a very important cause, and at times, a catalyst for nerve pain. In a case such as this, Vitamin B12 supplements or injections might be administered. Although more research needs to go into this, but certain supplements, especially gamma-linolenic and alpha-lipoic acid can help soothe nerve pain caused by diabetes.

  4. Acupuncture: This time honored Chinese approach is a proven alleviator of nerve pain. Acupuncture releases chemicals which numb the pain, or prevent the pain signals from travelling to the brain.

  5. Physical Therapy and Massages: Physical Therapy can especially heal and strengthen weak muscles that can stem from acute nerve damage and pain. Though more evidence is needed, according to a few sufferers of this condition, massages can be helpful with the tremendously painful muscle spasms that can so often result from nerve pain.

  6. Relaxation Techniques: In combination with the above mentioned approaches, relaxation techniques can go a long way in relieving debilitating neural pain. Besides being helpful with dealing and reducing a few stress phases of life which can cause nerve pain, these techniques might actually root out the actual pain itself.

  7. Lifestyle Modifications: This one’s always a winner! Eating a well-balanced diet that guarantees all nutrients in uniform amounts can never go wrong. Regular exercises for about 30-45 minutes can remedy different types of pain; nerve pain being one of them. Try and limit alcohol intake (a peg once a week won’t harm one, but binge drinking can play the ultimate spoilsport and make all health plans go topsy-turvy!). Abstain from smoking or chewing tobacco as this is usually the primary contributor towards any medical condition or disorder. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult the doctor and ask a free question.

I understand that it is a difficult situation for you and you are quite stressed. Let me assure you that there is no scientific evidence suggesting any correlation between weight loss or masturbation. There is no need to'get rid' of it or to'overcome' it. If you want to gain weight, you need to have a nutritious diet and exercise adequately. Please consult an adolescent health specialist in person.
