Hello lybrate-user, it would be better if you can undergo an x ray or something of your leg. Also if you perform some exercises of your leg, it will help you a lot. Some times such pain in the leg specially in the back side of the leg can even be due to vitamin or calcium or electrolyte deficiency. In that case, you will require multivitamin course. Till then, you can take homeopathic rhus tox 200, 4 pills three times a day.

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist,
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Pain below both knees could be due to several reasons but I would like to ask few questions: - do you have back pain, and is it that pain which radiates down your leg and which increases on walking? - do you have any associated swelling? - is there any numbness, paresthesias or any weakness in legs? - can you also specify exactly what increases your pain and what relieves it? do you regularly exercise, take calcium and vitamin d medications etc? do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user your symptoms indicate a cervical radiculaopathy. It could be a simple neck muscles spasm too. Apply hot fermentation to the painful area. If no relief cunsult a physiotherapist. These symptoms can be relieved in simple 1 week, 6 -7 physio sessions. By stretching the tight muscles and using pain relieving modalities.

In this case, you should buy heel cushions (easily available in stores /online). Silicone heel cushions are small pads that slip under the heel on top of the normal insole in shoes. The main objective of the silicone seat cushion is to act as isolation pads whereby they absorb some of the shock that passes through as the foot hits the floor when activities such as running or walking are undertaken. These pads are washable and reusable that deliver long-lasting, tough and resistant material.

Dear Lybrate user It takes time to recover. Whenever you feel severe joint pain you take medicine tab. Nimica plus suggested by your doctor and add one kiwi fruit in routine. Take plenty of water, juicy fruits and fresh fruit juice, avoid banana, try to have semisolid diet such as sabudana kichri, daliya, etc. Instud of chapati. If symptoms getting worse day by day then you should visit to your doctor again.

I am 44 years old computer programmer, and I have a pain in my right palm and wrist. Kindly suggest what to do.

MBBS, DNB (General Medicine), Certified in Evidence Based Diabetes Management, MNAMS
Internal Medicine Specialist, Kolkata
I am 44 years old computer programmer, and I have a pain in my right palm and wrist. Kindly suggest what to do.
Thank you for the query. Computer programmers are very prone to develop a condition called Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. This occurs due to compression of a nerve called median nerve as it passes through a tunnel in your wrist (carpal tunnel). The main symptoms are pain, numbness and tingling, in the thumb, index finger, middle finger, and the thumb side of the ring fingers. The symptoms may be worse at night. Clinical examination and nerve conduction velocity test confirms the diagnosis. However, other causes like degenerative wrist joint changes and tendinitis may also be a cause. Please get a X ray of the wrist joint done (AP and lateral). It is difficult to comment on the exact cause without examining. I would suggest you to consult an orthopaedic surgeon. Meanwhile you can take Calcium supplements and apply ice pack locally.
