May be, may be not. Depends upon the presentation. If the pain appears immediately after exertion, then it could be a sign of poor blood supply through coronaries when the heart needs more blood and oxygen. If there is family history of hypertension, diabetes, heart disease then one must evaluate itself by cardiac check up like ecg, blood pressure, regularity of pulses, 2 d echo etc. If everything comes to be normal, then you may rest assured.

For shoulder pain, medicines rarely help. They have temporary effect. If cause is not treated, your pain will return again and again. Do you have weakness in shoulder you need some exercises for shoulder and trunk. Consult shoulder specialist orthopedic surgeon.

Hi back pain usually occurs due to prolonged sitting in a bad posture or on a very soft sofa so my suggestion to you is avoid long sitting at one place for a very long time take adequate breaks and stand up and stretch yourself. For your current painful situation please apply hot pack on the lower back twice a day for 10 minutes and start strengthening your core muscle.

LOW BACK PAIN PHYSIO BALL EXERCISE DEAR, 1. The exercise ball is an exercise treatment option for back pain sufferers and is designed to help prevent or minimize further episodes of low back pain as part of a rehabilitation program. The exercise ball is effective in rehabilitation of the back because it strengthens and develops the core body muscles that help tostabilize the spine. With the exercise ball, also called a Swiss ball or physio ball, an element of instability is introduced to the exercise that one would not normally get in a floor exercise. The body responds naturally and automatically to this instability to keep balanced on the exercise ball. Over time, the muscles used to keep in balance on the exercise ball become stronger. In essence, individuals build strength in important back muscles and abdominal muscles without knowing it. •The exercise ball also uses what is called" proprioception, an awareness of where one's hand or foot is in relationship to space. The instability of the exercise ball provides the body with constant opportunities to evaluate its orientation in space, developing and training the body's natural awareness. Enhanced proprioception provides the body with increased balance and stability Simple and versatile way to start moving again after a back pain episode •Improved muscle strength •Greater flexibility and range of motion of the spine •Enhanced balance and coordination of core muscle groups used to stabilize the spine and control proper posture while using the exercise ball, which in turn reduces stress on the low back •Increased tendency to maintain a neutral spine position during exercise •In particular, many Swiss ball exercises are designed to bring movement to the spine in a controlled manner to help keep the discs nourished. Moving the vertebrae helps nourish the discs in the spine by increasing blood flow around the disc and by causing the water to flow in and out of the disc The exercise ball has additional applications in areas such as general fitness, strength or weight training, as well as exercise for pregnant women.
