I am 26 year old gal. I am suffering from Ankolysing spondylitis for last 3 years now. I am currently taking homeopathy but the situation seems to be worsening more. Earlier the pain was only in the hip area but now it has extended in the legs as well. Using dexona 0.5 mg does help for sometime but there is no relief. While walking a fracture like feeling is there in the spine. Cannot stand for long. Even while travelling in trains if there is pressure on you there is extreme pain. Climbing stairs is painful. Sleeping is even worse. Even coughing and sneezing is problem. Able to use Indian toilet with a lot of difficulty. Pain increases during weekends with no extra activity. Please help. I want to get rid of this pain as it poses a lot of problem in my daily routine. Neither can walk nor jog nor do any other physical activity comfortably.

As you must be aware that with ankylpsing spon there is multiple joint involvement and especially spine. Also thoracic area involvement can cause tightness around chest and sometimes difficulty breathing. Consult a good orthopaedic physiotherapist for a comprehensive exs plan to stretch the tight muslces and loosen joints in spine, breathing exs and strengthening protocol. If you do the exercise daily it can improve your functional ability significantly. Good luck for fast recovery.

No, its not normal. While liftng anything goods ,you should not bend your spine rather you bend your knees. Do not lift heavy goods. Sleep on the hard bed n keep your spine straight while sitting.

My grandma is 70 years old and she's having disc problem for last few years and cervical problem also. She's also a heart patient. Before 3 weeks she's felt down while standing from bed but she just complain for back pain and not any other problem. But from that day her condition is getting worse and we didn't know the reason. Although we have consult a doctor after thatXray had been done. Dr. said condition is same as before. Now she can't even walk for toilets. Dr. said we have to give injections of calcium and of nerve so that she can come back towards her normal condition. Dr. we just want to know the reason of weakness that she's not able to stand up by herself not even able to do anything by her.

Dear lybrate-user, At age 70, the body recuperation declines, there is muscle mass and bone loss. Injections of calcium may help, but only if her digestion is able to take it and also, if she is consuming adequate fats, vitamins to ensure digestion of these injections. Change her diet to increase fresh vegetables and fruit. Avoid besan, brinjals, rajma etc from her diet that will cause further digestive strain. Give her mineral rich grains like ragi, jowari. Wheat (roti) is also very diffivult to digest. Give butter milk. Regards.

Dear lybrate user will you let us know, the status of genital region, mean sense of errection, flow of urine, any incontinency. Unless not ruled out no one can forcast you to marry or not. If your motor or sensory deficit is there, I don t think that you can consume any women. So before attempting any try on marriage think twice.

You are probably suffering from Osteoarthritis (OA) of knee. (TKR) total knee replacement is a good procedure for OA knee. when done in properly selected patient,It gives uniformly good results. In our series we have over 95% satisfied patients. Pain disappears & patients are able to resume activities of daily living (ADL) IN 2-3 Wks. It should be done before the patient becomes bed ridden.

Dear lybrateuser, - Use a cushion or pillow to sit, as any pressure on the part will aggravate the problem - do spinal exercises to strengthen the paraspinal muscles which will help reduce pain - take a pain relief tablet after meals 2-3 times a day - do x-ray of affected area to rule out any injury to bone.

Is MRI Scan the only way to detect ligament tear or rupture? Are there any other ways to detect it? I had posted earlier in regards to knee pain.

Hello Lybrate user, Experienced doctors do not need MRI to pick up ligament tears. We do get it done to confirm the diagnosis we have made during examination of the patient. But yes, MRI is the best non invasive test to pick up ligament tears. Earlier people were doing an arthroscopy for diagnosis. But arthroscopy is no longer being done only for the sake of diagnosis. I do not agree with the previous answer. Ultrasound cannot pick up ligament tears.

I am 56+ years old Suffering with diabetic. Fasting sugar 185 and after 265. Every day 1 km. And also suffering with knee pains. What can I do

Hi thanks for your query. You have to take care of your diabetes as per your general physician/diabetologist advice. As far as your knee pain is concerned, it can be due to some degeneration setting in the joint which we call as arthritis. I need to know duration of pain and what are aggravating factors? how much distance can you walk and what is the analgesic requirement to carry out activities of daily routine? what medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards dr akshay kumar saxena consultant orthopaedics fortis hospital, new delhi do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena
