Hi doctor, I'm 19 year old female. But this is for my 19 year old male friend. He was in love with his class mate. They loved each other well. But recently, her marriage was fixed by her parents with another guy. Now both of them are compelled to separate. But he is always thinking of her and his exams got interrupted.

Dear lybrate-user, we understand your feelings he needs counselling, counselling will help him to come out of your problem and many patients are cured and enjoying better life after counselling, but we need to talk to him to take full details in-person or audio/video before we suggest something to cure your problem" it is known truth that counselling is better than medicine" when you love you need to build family 1. To have family life we need money 2. To earn money we need to have good job to get into this cycle, most important don't spoil your career.

Orthopedist,
Obesity is not a criteria to decide for surgeries of knee. However the risk related to anaesthesia will be high in obese. By the way if you can let me know the height and weight things will be more clear.

I have cervical spondlize n I have taken some ayurvedic medicine but not cured can I get any homeopathy medicine.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
As you said you are suffering from cervical spondylosis. So first tell me your age & profession. If you have done the xray of cervical spine then send me the reports of the xray so that I shall know the exact conditions of your problems. Apart from it, follow these instructions to get relief from cervical spondylosis. * first correct your sitting posture. Do not use laptops or mobile for more than 1-2 hours if yo have to work on computer then the screen of computer should be in the same level to your eyes. * you can use cervical collar for support during work. * do regular neck muscle strength exercises. Move your neck clockwise and anticlock wise for 2-3 minutes daily. * do not sleep on very soft bed, sleep on slight hard cotton mattress with very low pillow level. * do tadasana and bhjangasana for back strengthening. If you can not understand these asans you can consult me. * take calcium rich diet and calcium and vitamin d supplements regularly. *do not take any heavy weight or heavy work. * if you are over weight then follow a good and effective diet plan to loose some kilos of weight.

My mother is 78 years old, she is having arthritis, BP and her back is bent. She is having numbness in her hand.
Change her diet to avoid all foods that cause acidity and which are difficult to digest. Give her 25 ml of edible coconut oil like a medicine daily and increase Cows ghee in diet. These will help in a great way. Encourage her to do simple stretching exercises while lying down on bed to release the strain of bent back.

For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed.

My ra level is 1400 what do I do to decrease it?

MD - General Medicine, Fellowship in Rheumatology
Rheumatologist,
Ra level is a value to indicate whether you have disease or not, only when you have symptoms compatible with arthritis. Do you have pain; swelling of small joints of hands with early morning stiffness? if so. Consult your nearest rheumatologist. The value of ra level is not that important once it crosses 3 times the normal limit.
