Cold be premenopausal symptom? anyway rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days bio d3 max 1tab od x10 do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take.

Exercise regularly including stretching, yoga and exercises by lying on back. Do not sit at one place for longer time, avoid bending and lifting heavy weight. Apply orthomove ointment or oil over back twice daily. You may need internal medication.

Even I have gone through the caesarian section recently, this back pain is genuine because of general anaesthesia is given through injection on lumbar vertebra. Another reason for backache is, we carry heavy weight during pregnancy this will lead to increase lumbar lordosis (spine curve. Due to this our back muscles tired causes back pain. No now come to the exercise part: *do gentle ankle toe movements and stretchings. *do static abdominal exercises (breath in then contract abs muscles-hold-relax) *knee to chest exercise: lying down on your bed or floor, bend your one leg knee towards your chest and breath out. Reposition your knee, now repeat this with another leg for at least 15-20 times. For further exercises and advice contact me personally. Thank you.

I am an initial stage patient of rheumatoid arthritis and lupus (named as RHUPUS - RA+SLE. I am having medication for last 6 months now. The bone joint pains have reduced tremendously. SLE should be also in check. Though I would not know. My question is - how will I know that my disease is in check. Also for how long I have to take medication. This is important as the medication has severe side effects on my digestion system. So much so that I am on daily medication by A Gastro specialist. Also I have reduced the dosage from 200 mg to 100 mg of my RHUPUS medication as the doctor prescribed dosage had unbearable side effects on my digestive system. Is all this ok or I am doing something wrong. As ever thanks for all your help and guidance. Best regards.

Hello, as there are several meds involved in typically treating rhupus, it's impossible to answer your specific question without more details. But I can give you a basic understanding of what your disease is. Rhupus is basically SLE, but with the arthritic features of RA. The best way to see if the arthritis is controlled is via symptoms and intermittent X-rays or sonograms of the relevant joints. SLE though is quite different. Clinical features along with certain lab tests like esr, ds-dna titre, complement levels, etc help to assess disease control. An important caveat is that absence of symptoms is not equal to disease control, rather low degree smouldering disease is possible, hence do not modify medication without a rheumatologist's advice, to prevent long term complications. Remain active and exercise regularly while keeping a positive mind as the treatments available today are excellent. Tc.

Compartment Syndrome - What Exactly It Is?

Pain Management Specialist, Kolkata
Compartment Syndrome - What Exactly It Is?

What is Compartment Syndrome?
Compartment syndrome is a type of condition that occurs when pressure builds up inside a muscle tissue in the body. Compartment syndrome usually occurs due to swelling or internal bleeding after an injury. The swelling should go away once the wound heals. However in some cases, if the swelling doesn't improve quickly, it leads to the accumulation of pressure. Let us have a look at the symptoms and the causes in depth.

Understanding Compartment Syndrome:
Compartment syndrome is not exactly a disease, but it hampers the flow of blood to and from the affected tissues. Groups of organs/muscles are organized into zones called compartments. During an injury, blood may start accumulating in these compartments, as a result of which the pressure inside the chamber rises restricting smooth blood flows. Severe tissue damage can result, with a loss of body function as well. Compartment syndrome can be fatal in some cases if not treated immediately. The common areas where this occurs are the legs, arms, and abdomen.

Compartment Syndrome Causes:
Compartment syndrome can occur immediately after an injury or they can happen when the treatment plan for the injury is under way. The biggest risk is that while some compartment syndrome takes days to form, few cases occur within hours. The acute form of the condition occurs when there is damage to the bone like a fracture to the hand and limbs. Other causes can include crush injuries, over-tight bandaging, burns and prolonged compression of an arm or leg. Blood clots also cause this condition in some cases, and so does strenuous physical exercises. A simple physical exam is used to diagnose compartment syndrome along with an X-Ray.

Compartment Syndrome Treatment:
Treatment for compartment syndrome works on the fundamental principle of reducing the pressure to the affected region. Dressings and casts that hamper the blood flow have to be removed immediately. Movement and bodily functions of the affected area have to be monitored vigorously. Surgery is one of the foolproof ways to ease the pressure. It is done by making long incisions into the skin underneath the affected area and releasing the pressure. The surgeries are done as minimally invasive procedures and can be clubbed together with the treatment plan the person is undergoing. In some cases, if the pressure is weak and not restricting the flow, then physical therapies can be undertaken. Medications can also help to an extent along with strength exercises.

With the advances made in medical science, doctors can identify potential compartment syndrome symptoms more quickly. Since these mostly occur when undergoing the treatment, the condition has a better chance of getting identified at its root. They can be avoided mostly with the experience of the physician. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a pain management specialist.

Dear Lybrate user, please check her blood pressure and do blood test like KFTs and Urine routine from good lab. If above reports and BP normal consider for leg elevation when resting and sleeping. Apply crepe bandage or varicose stockings while sitting or walking.
