Hello there are many reasons of pain you should go through proper investigation. Physiotherapy is the best treatment for this condition. There are many reasons for this type of pain- 1. Overuse of muscles, 2. Deficiency of vitamin d3 or calcium, or lack of water in the body, 3. Postural stress, 4. Muscle strain, etc. Please send me all investigation reports if available. I can help you by providing correct ergonomic and physio-therapeutic tips. Till then you can follow these advises:- 1. Take calcium supplements and sun bath daily to prevent further damage to your joints. 2. Avoid heavy lifting. 3. Perform some gentle exercises and stretching of your all joints. 4.

If pain is local it could be arthritis / muscle spasm If the pain is radiating to whole arm, / and if there is sweating / vomiting sensation / diarrhea-it is clear indication of heart problem Any how sudden pain in left side is always needs evaluation by the cardiologist and by tests like ECG and ECHO

I am 30 years male suffering from backpain since last 6 months. Working at seating job.

Hi Mr. Lybrate-user after reading your complaints of back ache since 6 month duration with your working style of sitting for long hours, it's most likely a mechanical backache. I wanted to know if the pain is radiating to legs with any numbness in legs or any tingling sensation in foot. You have to focus on your ergonomics like changing in to a comfortable chair. Avoiding long hours of sitting. Your desk to chair distance and other ailments. Most importantly you have to start doing back exercises everyday concentrating more on core abdomen exercises and back strengthening exercises. Medicines will reduce the pain only temporarily. So update me with the information I asked and we can set you alright. Get well soon Dr. Sripal.

Stop gym. For few days. Investigations advised - hb, tlc, dlc, esr, sugar f & pp, uric acid, vit d3 urine r/e x ray of the affected part.

Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform

Dear Dr, I am 44-years-old slim, 53 kgs weight and I have a question. I occasionally get either left leg or right leg pain (on the back side of leg) and starts slow and it gets worst during evening or sometimes it starts in the evening and gets worst pain during night, for which I either apply some cream or occasionally take OTC medication. Also I have severe sinus problems which comes every now and then and gives me one hell of sickness and headaches, continuously phlegm coming out of my nose yellowish and sometimes bad smell. I need suggestion / Opinion / advice / application for the above. Please let me know your further advise on the same. Thanks.

Dear Mr. lybrate-user, Greetings. As I see from what you said, you have Two different Problems 1.Chronic Sinusitis 2. Low back Pain with Sciatica being aggravated by stress and strain. And can also get aggravated by sneezing and cough as a result of off and on Sinusitis. The solution is that you have to consult 1. An ENT Surgeon for sinusitis 2. You also has to consult an Orthopedic surgeon to get examination and investigation for Back pain and Sciatica, may be due to Lumbar Disc lesion. Wishing you all the Best.

dear user, avoid taking medicines if any to lose weight. just try legs excercises like lying flat on bed or floor. lift gently both the legs up and down repeat it 10 times. then do legs folding excercise 10 times if possible do situps 20 times. take a walk for 1km daily in early morning. this will helps you in reducing weight and pain and gains strength in muscles.

Diploma in Acupuncture, Pranic Healing, MD - Acupuncture

Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days.
