Hello lybrate-user, Thank you for contacting me. Due to weather changes coldness is common. If you are repeatedly getting cold, than it can be a matter of weak immunity. Do some simple exercise like walking, yoga, practice some asans. Stretching exercise may relieve joint pain. Hope you get some relief.

I am 39 Year old female, having Joint Pain in Shoulders and Back. Please inform me what I should do to get rid of Pain?
Dear. Such pains are common at this age. Because of early cervical spondylosis. Use a firm mattress and a thin-soft pillow. Do hot fomentation and apply a local gel /balm twice a day. Take a painkiller for a week or so. If of no avail. Go to a physiotherapist (u can do it from today it self) who will give you swd, ust and ift for a week or 10 days. You will settle. Take care.

Hello, . It's good to reduce weight at right time as many problems are directly related to overweight! Your menstrual problem can be due to that Remember, there's no magic bullet for weight loss. The key to losing weight is burning more calories than you consume. Choose a variety of healthy foods — such as fruits, vegetables, whole grains and lean sources of protein — and include physical activity in your daily routine. Go through the following general guidelines and implement them in your routine: Management: 1: Drink plenty of water (at least 2-3 l/d) or other calorie-free beverages. 2: Be choosy about nighttime snacks. 3: Enjoy your favorite foods. 4: Have 6 meals per day - 3 main courses and 3 snack meals (snack meals should be healthy). 5: Do regular exercises daily (start with light and later may be little vigorous) . Exercise decreases the stress hormone in your body, burns calories and also increases the blood circulation. Preferably brisk walking, swimming, cycling, skipping. 6: Eat seasonal fruits. Fruit helps to satisfy your sweet tooth thanks to its natural sugars, while fresh vegetables help you fill up more quickly. Fruits and vegetables contain fiber to help you feel full quickly. 7: Eat more whole grains and cut simple carbs. Whole wheat bread, oatmeal, whole wheat pasta, sweet potato, and brown rice are all excellent sources of energy and sources of nutrition. 8: Choose lean proteins instead of fatty ones. 9: Cut the salt from your diet. Eating more sodium causes your body to retain water, which can cause you to feel bloated and gain more weight. 10: Don't skip meals.When you skip meals, your body stops breaking down fat and starts breaking down muscle tissue. Muscle tissue burns more calories at rest than other tissues, so you're actually working against your goals 11: Eat at home. Going out to eat makes it too easy to cheat. Food sold at restaurants is commonly much higher in fat, sodium, and other weight-loss killers. 12: Give yourself a treat now and then. If you're attending a party or going out for a special occasion, allow yourself an indulgence. Just make sure that these indulgences don't become daily habits. 13: Go for a health walk. Gear up yourself daily for a health walk which not only shed off your extra calorie, but also reduces the stress levels. 14: Take small frequent breaks for a quick walk in between as sitting for long hours together encourages the accumulation of fat in the body! Medication: Take homoeopathic medicine - Schwabe's Phytolacca Berry tablets/ thrice daily 1/2 an hr before the meals for 3 months. Thereafter revert me back for further guidance. (Slow and steady weight loss is good. As we all know when you lose weight fast, it seems to jump right back on, whereas when you lose weight steadily over time because of changes to your diet and balancing your hormones out it tends to stay off.) All the best!

I have fell down from vehicle and found that lower part of fibula bone is fractured. Then advice me for how many days I wear air boot to become normal.

6 weeks of support is necessary. it also depends on the level of the fracture and I suspect if your surgeon has given you an air boot then it will be a stable fracture. you can upload your xrays

Hi, I'm 22 years old 6 feet tall & 170 lbs weigh. I had my blood drawn on Thursday, and as soon as the needle pierced me I felt a pain along the distal 2/3 of my radius. The phlebotomist said it's because my upper arm muscles were too tense. Well the pain subsides within 5 minutes but each day since it's gotten more frequent. Please advise.

The pain can be due to nerve damage due to piercing of needle------- the duration of recovery from your condition would ultimately depend on how severe the nerve damage is. Ideally, it is always best to have it looked at by a competent neurologist as early as possible as a physical examination is surely required-----------till then start taking following homoeopathic medicine----------------hypericum 1x tabs (wilmar schwabe india) chew 2 tabs 3 times daily for 15 days-------------

Dear lipanthyl is for your high tg, zestril is for your bp. I suggest you to make changes in your lifestyle. Reduce the quantity of salt. Avoid processed foods. Increase the quantity of green leafy vegggies. I guess your lifestyle must be sedentary in kuwait. Have your food early. Before sunset if pssible. It will definitely help you. Once you come to mumbai. You can see me. Will try to help you.

I have a severe back pain. I am 27 years old. Please provide me the solution to recover from this pain.
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket. And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back. You may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * surya namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * in diet vegetable protein of cereal, b complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

Avoid using pillows. Is your back/leg pain occurring after you walk or is it continuous? kindly elaborate on the condition. Do you have any associated weight loss, fever too? is the pain more in morning/evening? avoid heavy weight lifts and bending forwards, use hot/c\old fomentation 2-3 times a day and go for early morning walks. Hope this helps.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Pain at tail end region could in her case be due to an injury to coccyx, but I will like to see her x ray for that. Chronic pain in region of coccyx or tail bone is called as coccydynia and you need sitz bath, soft cushioned surface for sitting, nowadays coccydynia seats are available which take the pressure off from the affected region but send me her x ray so that I can see and advise you accordingly. 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.
