Masturbate causes muscle cramping in your thigh and back muscle that increases your back pain. Do a proper exercise and avoid long standing maintainance of similar posture. No such guideline regarding the frequency of masturbating.

1st of all avoid long time sitting, if you have maximum sitting sessions then try to change your positions. Apply some ice pack to the target area and follow some extension exercises. Take care.

JOINT DISORDERS
Joint Disorders
A ‪#‎joint‬ is where two or more bones come together, like the ‪#‎knee‬, ‪#‎hip‬, ‪#‎elbow‬, or ‪#‎shoulder‬. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or ‪#‎diseases‬, including
1. ‪#‎Arthritis‬ - inflammation of a joint. It causes pain, stiffness, and swelling. Over time, the joint can become severely damaged.
2. ‪#‎Bursitis‬ - inflammation of a fluid-filled sac that cushions the joint.
3. ‪#‎Dislocations‬ - injuries that force the ends of the ‪#‎bones‬ out of position
Treatment of ‪#‎JointProblems‬ depends on the cause. If you have a ‪#‎SportsInjury‬, treatment often begins with the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) method to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and speed healing. Other possible treatments include pain relievers, keeping the injured area from moving, rehabilitation, and sometimes surgery. For arthritis, injuries, or other diseases, you may need joint replacement surgery to remove the damaged joint and put in a new one.

Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone. Stiffness might have developed due to weakness of the ligaments & inflammed cartilage. Specific knee exercises will also help ie. Keeping ball underneath the knee and keep pressing it. That's the simple exercise which will help you to strengthen the knee.

I am 66 years old a diabetic for the past twenty years. I had undergone angioplasty 12 years back. Suddenly I had a lump on the upper portion of my stomach which was moving from left to right side with a back pain. Ultrasound was normal and cardiologist said it it is nothing to do with cardio. In February 2015 my diabetic medicine was changed to zeta meta 500 mg. When I started looking up for drug reaction on the net all my symptoms tallied with zeta meta. I stopped on my own this medicine and increased my insulin by 5 units. All the symptoms including my breathlessness, Heaviness on legs and the lump in my stomach vanishes within 15 days. My physician does not agree with me and he refused to see the print out given by me about the side effects of zeta meta. nowadays I walk 3 to 4 kms and do exercise without breathlessness. I will be happy to get an explanation from any of our eminent doctors.

Hello, I am male 28 years old. I have no bone injury history and have recently started gym and running on treadmill. I rum for around 25 mins and 4KM on average. I have started feeling leg pain from some time. My symptoms are similar to popliteal artery entrapment syndrome (PAES) or chronic exertional compartment syndrome (CECS) which I found after some online search. More like CECS but I am not sure. I recently had a full body checkup including blood, urine and stool test and nothing major came. My physician advised me to take Serum D13 or D3 vitamin test or something. Can you advise?

Hello,
I am male 28 years old.
I have no bone injury history and have recently started gym and running on treadmill. ...
Hello lybrate-user, chronic exertional syndrome is quite rare and represents a build up in the pressures of the compartment of the muscles. Easy way to diagnose it is to measure the pressure in the compartment of muscles before and after the exercises. Cecs would affect a complete muscle compartment and cause pain in the entire extent of the muscle especially at the back of leg or the calf. Another common condition after sudden increase in activity is a stress fracture which would cause a localized pain in the skin rather than entire region and you would be able to point out a single point where you feel the pain. This would require x rays and further assessment. There are many differentials for the diagnosis and all the conditions that cause leg pain cannot be explained here. I would suggest you to consult a qualified orthopaedic surgeon for a detailed clinical assessment and further management quickly when the problems can be managed by simple methods rather than later when you require extensive management. Hope this helps.

Cervical radiclulopathy left arm in little and ring finger congenital fusion of c3-c4 vertebra and mild disc bulge c5-c6. Doctors on paper wrote c7-T1 nerve compression. Any suggestions I taking physio and medicines. Am really depressed of this pain and numbness in finger.

Occupational Therapist, Muzaffarnagar
No need to worry at all. First educate yourself about this illness. For congenital fusion there will be no problem now. For nerve compression I will advice you for postural guidance and change in living style. Go for physiotherapy . it can be cured completely by Physio and occupational therapy treatment. Use medicine as prescribed by physician as it also have a good role.

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.

Shoulder Dislocation

Shoulder Dislocation

This is very common problem. It occurs in every 2 persons out of 10000 in an year.

In case of first dislocation because of trauma, accident or fall, main treatment is closed reduction and physiotherapy in people more than 30 years of age.

In recurrent dislocations, treatment depends upon number of dislocations, patient expectations and bone loss. Most of the cases can be done arthroscopically. It is very safe procedure. Keyhole surgery is done and very small holes are made for surgery.

This is costly treatment because implants are costly. Its preferable to use best quality implants which yield good results. If anyone gets shoulder dislocation, I would suggest you to go for Insurance policy with adequate cover without delay. This way, whenevr treatment is required, it can be done under insurance cover.

1. Dont eat sugar and avoid sugar-sweetened beverages 2. Eating more protein may be the best long-term strategy to reduce fat 3. Cut carbs from your diet 4. Eat foods rich in fiber especially viscous fiber 5. Aerobic exercise is very effective at reducing fat 6. Track your foods and figure out exactly what and how much you are eating.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. The muscle pain which you are feeling in your chest region may actually be strain in intercostal muscles. Please give it time of 2-3 weeks, stop any sporting activity if you are involved in till your pain subsides, take a short course of anti inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or tab paracetamol for 5-7 days and let me know how you are feeling in 10 days time otherwise we will get some blood investigations done for you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr. Akshay kumar saxena consultant orthopaedics fortis hospital, new delhi.

You should start streching and strengthening exercises. Maintain your posture. Control body weight. When you sit try to sit on fully back supported chair. Don't lift heavy weight.
