In december 2nd of 2016 I got back pain while waking up in the morning. I"ve consulted m.s. Ortho he suggested me to take aceclo+thieocycolonide and methylcobalamin+gabapentin for 15 days. I have continued it for 1 month and again consulted the doctor. Who has suggested for MRI scan. The report is lumber spondylosis. I am getting pain at right side and the report is left side. What is the reason for that and in february I travelled by bus for one hour and I got severe pain again i've consulted spine specialist in a super speciality hospital at hyderabad and has suggested for surgery. Is it necessary to go for a surgery? At the same time I also consulted a m.s.ortho (retired professor) for second opinion. He told me go for some medicine flexura-d&gabalup-m for 20 days. What can I do what is the remedy?

HI The soreness or muscle spasm is felt most strongly 24 to 72 hours after the exercise. Take it easy for a few days while your body adapts, . Or try some light exercise such as walking or swimming. Keeping the muscle in motion can also provide some relief.

Hi, I am 41 years old & am suffering from pain in my heel area from past 2 months. After my blood test suggested by doctor it showed uric acid is 7.2mg/dl. My doctor said its gouty arthritis. My doctor suggested medicine tablet febuxostat 400mg & restriction of food like rice, dal, chicken etc. I took medicine tablet febuxostat 400mg regularly for 10 days but have not been able to restrict my food. The pain only starts when I stand continuously in the kitchen even for 10 minutes. Nothing happens when I walk. Please tell me if my problem is because of uric acid or is it something else. Please give me a solution without me restricting my food as I eat dal & rice daily.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.

C.S.C, D.C.H, M.B.B.S
General Physician,
Arthritis is painful.
It is a debilitating illness that worsens with time. Pain, swelling in the joints and stiffness affect your mobility and curb your active lifestyle. Corticosteroids and anti-inflammatory medicines help alleviate pain in the joints and reduce inflammation.
But more and more people with arthritis are now adopting natural remedies to get it treated safely. Making positive changes in the lifestyle like regular exercise, foods with anti inflammatory properties and getting restful sleep etc. Help to ease the pain.
But do herbal supplements for arthritis work?
Let us go through a list of herbal supplements to know about their efficacy in treating symptoms of arthritis-
A) Cat?s claw
Cat?s claw is also known as ?Alai? in Hindi. It has shown mixed results in relieving inflammations due to arthritis like morning stiffness, swelling and pain in the joints. It has shown minimal side effects with tummy upset as the major complaint.
B) Ginger
Ginger has anti inflammatory properties that help relieve common cold, migraine, hypertension etc. It can be brewed into tea or even available in the form of supplements in the market.
Studies have shown that taking 3 to 6 grams organic ginger powder two times a day regularly for three months proves beneficial in treating arthritis symptoms. It provides relief in pain and enhances mobility of joints. This happens because it improves blood circulation.
C) Turmeric
Turmeric is a great anti inflammatory herb. It contains two compounds ? curcumin and curcuminoids that help lower inflammations in arthritis.
Although it is used commonly in Indian cooking, but should be consumed in the form of a supplement to enjoy its maximum benefits. Take 1 ? 2 turmeric capsules with food and water twice a day, or as directed by your health care practitioner. It effectively helps mitigate pain in arthritis.
D) Eucalyptus
Eucalyptus oil extract helps relieve arthritis pain and swelling in the joints. Eucalyptus leaves contains tannin that reduces the joint swelling and pain. The extract is applied topically and generally followed by heating pads over the affected joints.
E) Green Tea
Green tea is cultivated extensively in India and China. It is a traditional herbal remedy for improving digestion and boosting metabolism as well as heart health.
It is powerhouse of antioxidants like polyphenols which restrains damage to your joints and inflammations caused due to arthritic condition. Its anti inflammatory nature will keep you protected against autoimmune arthritis. You can drink green tea 2-3 times a day preferably after day time meals. You may add a few drops of lemon juice to it to enhance its anti oxidant properties.
If you are taking any medicines, make sure you consult your doctor before consuming green tea as it may react with other medications.
F) Flaxseed
Flaxseed can be consumed raw or in the form of oil and capsules. It helps in lubricating the joints that have gone stiff due to arthritis and helps relieve stiffness and joint pain. This happens because flaxseed is an excellent source of omega 3 fatty acids that are anti inflammatory in nature. You may also add flaxseed to salads, soups, curd, sandwiches or smoothies.
G) Night Jasmine
Night jasmine is also popularly known as ?Parijat? or ?Harshingar? tree in India. It is anti inflammatory, anti spasmodic and analgesic in nature. The decoction of its leaves help relieve symptoms of arthritis. You may take it once a day for arthritic relief.
H) Pineapple
Who would have thought that pineapple could come in handy in relieving symptoms of arthritis! Bromelain or an extract of pineapple stem is anti inflammatory in nature and helps reduce swelling and pain in the joints. For specific dosage, consult your ayurvedic doctor.
I) Chirayita
Chirayita is a herb found commonly on the slopes of Himalayas. It is abundant in swerchirin, swertianin and swertanone compounds that are anti inflammatory in nature. It thereby helps reduce symptoms of arthritis. For specific dosage, consult your ayurvedic doctor.
J) Boswellia
Boswellia helps relieve morning stiffness, pain and swelling in joints in rheumatoid arthritis and osteoarthritis. It is a safe way to treat symptoms of arthritis. In Fact a combination of Boswellia and turmeric supplements checks the degeneration of arthritis without any side effects. For best results, take 1 capsule of Boswellia supplement in the morning and 2 capsules at night.
K) Willow Bark
It is anti inflammatory and therefore helps alleviate pain in rheumatoid arthritis by reducing inflammation in the joints. It is generally taken in form of tablets.
L) Devil?s Claw
It is a traditional African herb used to treat infections and problems of the digestive system. Its root extract contains compounds like iridoid glycoside that has shown positive results in treatment of rheumatoid tendonitis, arthritis and osteoarthritis. It also has pain alleviating properties with negligible side effects.
M) Stinging Nettle
Its leaves and stem are used as tea or in capsule form. Stinging Nettle has high amounts of minerals like potassium, magnesium and calcium that helps relieves symptoms of gout. It has analgesic properties that helps ease inflammation and pain in case of osteoarthritis.
Ask your doctor before taking this supplement for arthritis as it may interfere with medicines for heart disease, diabetes and cholesterol.
N) Burdock Root:
It has immense anti inflammatory power. This is because Burdock root contains essential fatty acids or EFAs. This is beneficial in relieving joint pain due to arthritis.
Some herbal supplements work wonders in relieving symptoms of arthritis while others give mixed results depending on the type of arthritis. Consult your doctor before you start taking them for specific duration, dosage and suitability for your arthritic condition to derive maximum benefits

I have joint pain and also ankle and neck pain. Please consult me something to resolve it.

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
I have joint pain and also ankle and neck pain. Please consult me something to resolve it.
Try some remedies for joint pain: -ice packs can be used to soothe hot, swollen joints. -heat packs help to relax tense, tired muscles. -splinting of swollen or painful joints may be helpful, a physiotherapist or an occupational therapist (ot) may provide temporary splints for you. -pace yourself: overdoing things can increase your pain, but so can not doing enough. Your physiotherapist can advise you on increasing your activity level at a rate you can cope with and on finding the right balance between rest and activity. -take regular graded exercise: graded exercise starts slowly and increases in small steps. This will help you to strengthen your muscles and joints and increase your fitness. Improving your general fitness and stamina will help you to increase your activity level without increasing your pain. -mobilising, stretching and strengthening: your physiotherapist will assess your muscle strength and the range of movement in your joints, and advise on techniques and exercises so you can keep your joints working as well as possible. Best wishes.

First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket. And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back. You may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * surya namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * in diet vegetable protein of cereal, b complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.
