Dear lybrate user will you let us know, the status of genital region, mean sense of errection, flow of urine, any incontinency. Unless not ruled out no one can forcast you to marry or not. If your motor or sensory deficit is there, I don t think that you can consume any women. So before attempting any try on marriage think twice.

Hi i' am 22 male. I have a calf muscles problem. I dont know how to describe properly I cant say its pain but a feeling of uncomfortable and numbness I guess. Well I usually dont feel it when I am walking but it starts the uncomfortable feeling when ever I lay or try to take rest. And not only that it get worse after sleep. So what could be the reason I went to doctor and asked about it but he didnt took it seriously. He told me that the reason could probably because I dont do exercise. Yes I usually sleep all the time. Thank you

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Pain in calf muscles of legs could actually be due to a lot of reasons ascribed to anatomical structures like muscles, nerves, tendons, blood vessels etc. Can you tell me what has been the duration of this pain? is there any associated swelling or any other s/s of inflammation present? my advice is that you can start with conservative management and see how it goes for the next 2-3 weeks but there are some blood tests which I will like you to do - cbc, esr, crp, serum electrolytes, serum vitamin d levels ( empty stomach) do: - ice packs application intensively with elevation of your limbs at night - take a short course of anti-inflammatory medication as per your body's suitability - stop your heavy physical activity till pain completely subsides - intensive physical therapy, training and proper muscle conditioning - slow resumption of physical activities with proper pre match warm up and stretching of muscles and short increments in duration of physical activity each day as per pain tolerance. I will be able to advise you in a better manner once I have these blood test reports. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Dear,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,low back pain are often referred for physical therapy for four weeks as an initial conservative (nonsurgical) treatment option before considering other more aggressive treatments, including back surgery. The goals of physical therapy are to decrease back pain, increase function, and teach the patient a maintenance program to prevent future back problems. Common forms of physical therapy include: 1. Passive physical therapy (modalities), which includes things done to the patient, such as heat application, ice packs and electrical stimulation. For example, a heating pad may be applied to warm up the muscles prior to doing exercising and stretching, and an ice pack may be used afterward to sooth the muscles and soft tissues. o See Physical Therapy: Passive PT (Modalities) for Back Pain 2. Active physical therapy, which focuses on specific exercises and stretching. For most low back pain treatments, active exercise is the focus of the physical therapy program. This article focuses on active physical therapy and exercise as a means to help recover from back problems and prevent or minimize future flare-ups of low back pain low back pain has lasted between two and six weeks, or if there are frequent recurrences of low back pain, physical therapy is often recommended. Some spine specialists consider physical therapy sooner, particularly if the pain is severe. • Read more: Exercise and Back Pain In general, the goals of physical therapy are to decrease pain, increase function, and provide education on a maintenance program to prevent further recurrences. A physical therapy program for back pain usually has two components: 1. Passive physical therapy to help reduce the patient's pain to a more manageable level 2. Active exercises Passive Physical Therapy - Modalities Acutely, the physical therapist may focus on decreasing pain with passive physical therapy (modalities). These therapies are considered passive because they are done to the patient. Examples of modalities include: • Heat/ice packs • TENS units • Iontophoresis • Ultrasound

Try this for joint pains try this. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.

Morning pain in left foot, this pain is frm last 3 year. Some time Its really huge in morning.

Morning pain in left foot, this pain is frm last 3 year. Some time Its really huge in morning.
Thank you for writing to us. Please note that it could be due to high uric acid. Hence do test for uric-acid in your body and get back to me with the reports. Apple cider vinegar also helps restore the alkaline acid balance in the body and provides anti-inflammatory and antioxidant benefits. Add one teaspoon of raw, organic, unpasteurized apple cider vinegar to a glass of water. Drink this solution two or three times a day. You can gradually increase the amount of apple cider vinegar up to two tablespoons per glass of water and continue this remedy until your uric acid levels come down. Note: do not take apple cider vinegar in excess as it may decrease potassium levels in the body. Also, it may interfere with diuretic drugs.

Your sugar level is slightly higher, so try to keep it under check. Exact location you need to mention. Back pain can be due to various reasons, with age there are some degenerative changes, so better to get x-ray done for knowing the status of your spine, in the meanwhile you can do some hot fomentation then apply some pain relief gel like volini etc. Also you seem to be 10 kg overweight so try to lose that, and learn some back exercises by a physiotherapist to strengthen you core muscles.

I' m suffering from frozen shoulder from last five months and my left arm is lifting till 90 degree only with continuous pain. Let me know what to do?

MCh Ortho, ATLS (AIIMS), Diploma In Orthopaedics (D. Ortho), MBBS
Orthopedist, Kolkata
Treatment of frozen shoulder is done by exercise and physiotherapy. Sometimes it can take months to get relief. In severe cases manipulation of the shoulder is done under anesthesia to give quicker relief. Ice packs immediately before and after physio will help reduce the pain during physio. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr. Manoj kumar khemani
