I am 26 year old boy. I have backpain. Doctor told me its vaaadam (malayalam language. What can I do ?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. I am actually not aware of what vaadam actually means but you are very young to have persistent back pains. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your back while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc we will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like, dynamic x rays of lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I'm suffering from knee pain. What should i do?
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. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem.

Hi . This is called as lhermitte's sign or the lhermitte sign. This is caused due to conditions affecting the spinal cord and the medulla in the brain. Sometimes it can be due to a multivitamin deficiency. However you will need a neurological evaluation to rule out various conditions. Do see a neurologist at the earliest.

Dear lybrate-user Neck pain at this young age is usually due to any injury or poor posture. U need to correct your posture e.g. Sit straight while studying, avoid supporting your neck on head while reading, etc. Search Computer ergonomics on internet, for better posture while using computer. If not corrected, then get CBC, ESR done. Kindly consult me in private, so that I can discuss your problem in detail and prescribe you medicines, as I can't write any medicine here. Thank you. Get well soon.
