I have lower back pain sometime, and nerve compression in right leg. I got back injury in oct 2015, the local doctor prescribe medrol infection and flexure D tablet for refile. Is this relates to sleep disc? What is the permanent treatment?

If there is tingling and numbness in legs, then some nerve compression can be there, proper evaluation will help to know what the problem is, you can take physiotherapy treatment to get relief from back pain and also learn few therapeutic exercises to keep your back muscles strong. Proper precautions like avoiding forward bending, lifting heavy weight, etc ergonomic advice by a physiotherapist will also help.

Dear lybrate-user, gentle massage over the affected part with lukewarm herbal pain relieving oil for 20 minutes followed by hot fomentation. It will relax the muscles and the veins of your affected part improving the blood supply to the organ and giving strength to it. Please avoid over-use of the part affected i. E. Lifting weight - pushing or pulling heavy objects. Give proper rest to the part - let it heal with the time. Also drink hot glass of milk while going to bed at night - this will supplement natural calcium to your aching muscles. This will greatly help.

All these are not related to masturbation. Masturbation is not really bad; it is the addiction to it that is bad. Not even the number of years is a problem but the frequency and compulsiveness to do it is to be considered for its ill-effects. At your age you may feel it difficult and it can become addictive if you have alone time, if you obsess about it, and if you are not into relationships. The problem with addiction to this is that you may go on to prefer masturbation to heterosexual contact, even when you are married. That obviously would be an insult to your wife and will lead to a lot of conflict. Heterosexual contact is very wholesome and the physiology is made exactly for penile and vaginal contact. You will instead enjoy a poor replica of this and not know or care for the difference. The second thing that can happen with addiction is that it will become compulsive and will have no boundaries or limits, since it can be done all by yourself, whenever, wherever, and however too. The big problem a lot of children get into is the guilt around this. A useful way to discharge the energy is to get into contact games, or exercises, or even hobbies to channelize it. Also you should not spend too much time alone, and you need to keep your mind occupied with other interesting things and a lot of socializing. Even if you are not interested in marriage, for whatever reasons, it will help you to get into a friendship with a girl and enjoy the relationship where there will be a lot of excitement when you fall in love. Right now your hormones may be very active and your physiological apparatus is primed and ready for sexual stimulation. But because of your age and even otherwise it is important to develop good control and not feed into your impulses. Keeping yourself occupied and living a healthy social life are the keys to manage your sexual drives.

Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day.

I am 32 years old female. I feel sleepy, drowsy and lethargy soon after my lunch. I keep yawning till I go and take rest or a nap. I also get a feeling of not being fit and sometimes its followed by mild head ache and shoulder pain. I have spondylitis and Thyroid. But my concern is that this happens only when I am in Office, on weekends and holidays when I am at home none of the above problems are faced by me. Why is it so? What to do?
