You are grossly underweight. Take food in time and increase food intake. It must be healthy food, not oily / spicy / hot (chili). You can take calcium, but nutritious food should cure leg pain. If you elaborate your stomach pain I may become more specific. Where you have pain? Has it any relation with food or empty stomach? since when you are having the pain? Did you take any painkiller in empty stomach? you come with all these answers and if any other relevant point you think related to your stomach pain, to my private question part.

Hi I am from max hospital and I would like to answer your query. Its most likely to be mechanical back pain. Get an x-ray done and if x-ray is normal means there is no any secondary or pathological cause of your back pain. So if you had mechanical back pain, the following measures will help: you have to do back exercises regularly lie on hard bed correct your posture while sitting avoid prolonged sitting avoid lifting heavy weights. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Cervical Spodylosis and Backache

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda
Ask Free Question
Following medicines of ayurveda classics are used for cervical spodylosis and backache:

Ekangavira rasa, pravala pisti, brihat vata chintamani ras, svarna-maksika bhasma, trayodasanga guggulu, chandra-prabha vati, pidantaka rasa. The vehicle (anupana) is honey. As given in my tips earlier, harsingar/ parijat (night jasmine) leaves decoction used with these will miraculously relieve and cure the patient barring acute prolapse conditions for which surgery is indicated. But surgery of spine should be got done in extreme necessity only by experts.

As everybody knows that such diseases are technically pain management techniques but medicinally, in allopathy, only some pain killers are given to get instant relief. Alternatively, above ayurveda medicines balance the vata vitiation. When used with other pain management support techniques, patient comes out of chaos very soon.

Numbness & /or pain in leg is due to pressure on the nerve. This could be due to lumbar spondylosis with nerve root compression. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take paracetamol 250mg od & sos you will need other supportive medicines also. Do back (spine) exercises make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take you may have to use lumbosacral support for some time. Avoid painful act/activities. Take medicines as prescribed it may have to be further investigated. Do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

Hi Review with a check x-ray with your treating doctor. At this stage, if healing has occurred then simple hot water dipping and gradual flexion and extension exercises will restore movements in another 2 weeks or so nothing to worry.

Dear lybrate user, many factors can be associated for back pin from disc, joints, muscles etc. If there is morning stiffness some rheumatic component can also be present, advise is to get yourself throughly examined by orthopedician or interventional pain specialist for proper diagnosis and then further correct treatment, than taking pain killers for pain. Hope it helps.
