I am 46 and I have slight pain at my knee after sitting for 15-20 minutes. Please advice me what to do?
This is a general strain due to excessive walking or standing and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes. One time you can do hot water fermentation that would help to reduce the muscle strain.

Neck stretching exercises are best along with local application of volini / nizer gel. Forward bending should be avoided. For exercises go to health feed. If still pain persists consult for medicines.

Dear lybrate-user, your problem is most likely a minor condition of the cartilage it the meniscus (shock absorber of the knee joint). Please consult an orthopaedician for a good clinical examination and x ray if needed. Most likely exercises can improve your problem and you should be able to get back to physical activity. Hope that helps, get well soon.

I have a l4 l5 problem, (back pain) how would I get immediate relief in case I'm travelling.
Hi if you have localized back pain with - no neurological symptoms like numbness, paresthesia, weakness in limbs etc, my advice is: - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a physiotherapist and then at home. - avoid forward bending, lifting heavy weights etc - take an analgesic like diclofenac or something which suits your body for 5-7 days - take muscle relaxant for same time as analgesic to relieve muscle spasm - ice packs at the site of pain, muscle spasm - local analgesic spray can be used but no massage is required let me know how you are feeling. I will actually ask you to get x ray of involved region of spine (ap & lateral) and send reports across to me so that I can advise further in a better manner. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Titrate thyronorm by yourself according to the test. These symptoms might be due to these. Still you have to do exercises. Regular walk morning and evening according to your ease. Progressively increase the duration of the exercises. Then start aerobics regular stretching exercises. Diet have be maintained with low fat but fibre rich and break your food habit if you are habitual binge eater. Restrict calories intake.

I am a male around 62. Suffering from Osteoarthritis since around 10 yrs. I am based in Indore, MP. I wanted to go for the" Jab injection" for the time being, since I cannot afford the replacement. Can the doctors help me with the cost for both the knees, and also the pros and the cons. And any risk or side affects. I'll be very grateful indeed.

The cost of hyaluronic acid injection is roughly around 15000 for 1 knee. It works for at least 6 -9 months and more in some cases. Side effects are allergy (as it is chicken derived), swelling and infection (if not administered with aseptic precautions). Most of my patients get reasonable improvement after 2 months in terms of pain and mobility. With oral supplements the benefit is further improved. In my experience, 8 out of 10 patients will repeat the shot after experiencing the benefit.

Hey I have been suffering from back pain and it have been irritating me so what to do can any one say.

Hey I have been suffering from back pain and it have been irritating me so what to do can any one say.
Hello Lybrate user,  Back pain that is associated with day time sedentary jobs like computer professional s are associated with paraspinal muscle spasms. The best way to tackle this sort of pain is to do well spaced Stretching exercises of the back, back extension exercises, using hot water bags to provide relief and avoiding stooping posture while sitting. Posture also plays a very important part in back pain, always maintain a straight posture while sitting. While getting up from the bed try to first go on your left or right side of the body and get up side ways. Avoid Cruntches or Sit-ups: they may increase the pressure on your back and may predispose to Slip Disc. Always maintain a healthy Lifestyle in terms of regular brisk walking, meditation, eating healthy. P. S: Try to avoid pain killers (Analgesics) as much as possible as many are associated with Side effects that you may not be aware of. Stay Healthy. Stay Happy God bless you.
