Hi lybrate-user, this sounds like plantar fasciitis which is an inflammatory condition of the foot. This can be confirmed by consulting a pain physician/ orthopedician and taking a foot x ray. Simple things that can be done include rest, icing your foot/sole twice a day, orthotic plantar arch supports, elevation of foot in the night on a pillow. Sometimes patients require injections if the conservative management fails. Please confirm diagnosis and proceed.

This pain might just be due to postural problem. Right posture can go a long way. 1. Use a small cushion placed behind your lumbar spine while you sit. Sit with a backrest. 2. Start some lower back strengthening exercises if the problem persists. Please consult someone. Hope you get well soon.

Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You will have to elaborate your problem as to a detailed discussion of your back pain which means duration of pain and mode of onset. I would also like to ask you if it is associated with any leg pain or any other neurological symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias (electrical shock like abnormal sensations) or any weakness in limbs. Please also tell me about any associated symptoms like fever, weight loss etc. What medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. Also swelling in legs could be due to multiple reasons like thyroid disorders, postural, low protein levels in body, vascular causes etc. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

My aged is 30, not married. Last some years, I am having leg pain. Because of that leg pain I can not able to sleep for the past four years. Even I can not sleep with my friends or with family member, they will make fun at me, because I will punch my calf myself and pushing my leg for pain relief without my knowledge while sleeping. And I can not able to sit for more than 15 minutes, can not able to drive car for more than a hour. Checked with many doctors and took many medicines, but no use. Please suggest me some treatment or some other.

Reducing tan Your skin will be healthy and the face will be bright once you maintain healthy life style and disciplined habits. *. Take nutritious and timely food. *. Avoid fried foods and eat fruits, nuts, pulses, greens, milk and whole grains *. Drinking lots of water is good. Keep hydrated by drinking water and preferring juicy fruits. *. Have timely and adequate sleep. Your body will be fresh after good night sleep. *. Be relaxed and avoid tension *. Daily jogging or such exercise to ensure good blood circulation which helps nutrients reaching the skin and all parts of body. Facial massage will also promote good circulation. *. Don’t expose to hot direct sun. Wear cap, full sleeve shirt and shoes which will protect you from sun. Generally 10 AM to 4 PM is the hottest. Avoid exposure at that time. *. When you apply any cream, sun screen and the like, clean your face at the earliest, so that there will be no adverse action of the chemicals on the delicate skin of face. Your skin ‘breaths’ through its pores which are not to be closed for long. *HOMOEOPATHIC medicines are taken internally. Hence, NO DIRECT CONTACT with your delicate and sensitive skin, thereby no problem of skin allergy *Keep hydrated by drinking water and preferring juicy fruits.

Back pain is a very comon problem in our daily routine life. Its an occuptional problem. Back pain problm dovelops in series but it occur suddnly due to our lyf styl. You said dt you hv problm since lst 4yr bt it continues frm 5 mnths. As I told dt. The structure of our spine is very complicated. There is no support in our lower back area. Dre iz olwys a curve either sitting, standing, or even lying. So dre izz no support. So muscules of dis area iz very weak due to its musculature or dre izz no support. Or our lyf style. The lower spine resist almost 50% weight of our body. When we doing any kind of movmnt where lower spine bend. It means the gravitational force work wid 50% body weight. So dre izz olredy muscles r weak nd they are furthr weak due to forewrad movmnt of lower spine. So the main thingh iss dt. Avoid oll d forewrd movmnt of spine as much you can. Avoid low floor sitting. Avoid stairs climbing. Nd avoid any prolong posture. Sitting, standing. Walking. Sit olwys wid lower back supoort -coushion or back rest at home or at your wrk palace. Moist heet fomantation apply atlest 20 min 2 times a day. When pain izz subsides about 60% than you can start muscles strengthning exercises or stretching can b don. Last not d lest --increase your water intake atlest 4 ltr a day. Thnxx.

Good afternoon sir/mam. I am nilima, my mother is 55, fat & short, she is having problem in her knee from long time. I request please give me if any solution.

Very Good Afternoon Nilima, Thanks for writing in regards to your mother. From the given information about your mother, it appears her weight to be primary problem which may have contributed to possible wear & tear changes inside the knee by now. To be confirmed, a clinician like Physiotherapist & Orthpedic Consultant needs to assess her. There are many solutions for knee pain. Now which solution will be more apt for her can only be determined via clinical assessment & treatment. I believe knee pain for a length of time, most patients have tried doing massage, heat, pain killers to name a few. So, best solution for you & your mother is to get her on board regarding treatment of the problem. Get her to be motivated to lose weight through diet & controlled exercises. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss further. I use this opportunity to express my gratitude to seek help for restoring good health. Best wishes
