I am always having headache once I woke up in morning, also a small pain in neck, what will be the reason behind it.
It may indicate the change in your blood pressure or deformity of cervical spine. Sometimes it is also due to your wrong seating habits and regular neck down position. You have to take proper medical help nearby you or contact me in private.

Lot of back pain. Docs say due to stress. But no physical stress, only studies. Suggest remedies please.
Hello Lybrate user Back Pain in adults have several causes among those most common is sedentary lifestyle and improper posture. It plays significant role. Lack of physical workouts or less activity like cycling, walking,swimming, running, etc. Leads muscle weakness because of no activity cause improper circulation as well as decrease muscle action thus reduce the power/strength of muscle. Another major cause affecting the adults is lack of healthy high fiber diet ,Fresh fruits, water intake, sunlight etc. My advice is take hot pack and once pain reduce start few back Ms. strechting exercises under supervision of well experienced physiotherapist only.

We often take our bones for granted until we break one or are diagnosed with a bone disease in old age. The fact is that our bones are require lifelong protection and nurturing.

The skeletal system encompasses all the bones, tendons, ligaments and cartilage in the body. It performs a number of vital functions, like giving your body its structure, aiding bodily movements and producing new blood cells.

The hands and feet contain more than half the body's bones.

Our bones are not evenly distributed throughout the body; some areas in the body have far more bones than others.
Ouhand has 27 bones, and each foot has 26. This means that together the two hands and two feet have 106 bones. So, your hands and feet have over half of the bones in your entire body.

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.

It's due to playing football, now apply ice give rest, if your having severe pain consult physio. Don't strain muscles try to avoid cycling, staircase, prolonged standing, and walking etc. After reducing pain you have strengthen your muscles. Try to do some physical activity at least daily 30 to 45 minutes. Then you won't face this type of pain.

For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day.

Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do streching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you dont get relief consult physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.
