My wife had for her ankle fractured. We got it plastered. But the plaster seems to be a bit loose now after 8-9 days. Should we remove the current plaster and get it done again?

As you feel pain in knees, follow these usefultips for pain relief: * first check out bone mineral density (bmd). In case of low bmd, your calcium level in body are low.

I am suffering from knee pain from 2 weeks and stomachache from 2 days. Please tell me reason behind it.
Hi, welcome to lybrate. Your knee and stomach pain may not necessarily be related. Knee pain at your age can arise due to multiple causes inclusion injury, gout, any kind of arthritis, low vitamin d levels, infection or weakness of muscle to name a few. A thorough examination will be useful to find the cause. Some blood tests fasting including hb, tlc, dlc, esr, vitamin d, uric acid, anti ccp, calcium, phosphorous, alkaline phosphotase, pth along with x ray knee ap and lateral views in standing position will be useful. In the meantime you can learn quadriceps strengthening exercises from a physiotherapist and do them 20 mins 3 times a day to strengthen your knee muscles. Avoid squatting on floor, sitting on indian toilet and excessive stair climbing. Revert back with investigations reports.

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- 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. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

I'm 45 years old and since the past 2 days I have very stiffness near my lower back along with the entire lower abdomen area. please help me what to do?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi Acute onset stiffness in the lower back region could be due to muscular issue or an acute exacerbation to a chronic lower back problem. My advise will be to: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication which suits you, a proper muscle relaxant can also be added for initial 5-7 days - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc in case you are having back pain.

At times while I am lying when I try to spread my legs, sudden pain rises in back muscles of my leg in the part which lie below knee. It usually stays for less than a minute, but it's quite painful and it strikes me frequently only when I am lying and try to spread my leg. Now it has been a long time since I am suffering from this issue. Through recent test I got know about high blood pressure and since long I have thyroid issue for which I take medicine.

Probably it might due to the increased blood pressure as you said. Generally rise of BP might leads to sudden onset of pain it could be anywhere from head to toe. Consult a physician the home remedy would be go to bed early sleep for 10 hours regularly and take nice fruits and drink more water especially while going to bed, before taking bath and before entering into any physical activity.

Hi. You can also start doing simple muscle exercises in the morning after you get up. Observe pattern of your anxiety more closely like is anxiety linked to some speific situation, events or some thoughts. Write them down. This will help you understanding your anxiety. Learn some breathing exercises. They help you control the body's response to anxiety and will make you calmer.
