It seems your pain is a result of faulty posture. Adopt good posture sit tall shoulders back neck straight chest forwards. Take frequent breaks while sitting for long time. Do hot water fomentation on your neck 2 to 3 times a day for 10 mins. Do neck and shoulder exercises two times a day. Do chin tuck ins, neck up and down, side to side, take your arms up and down, and then up from the side. Learn this exercises from a physiotherapist.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You issue of lower back pain can be sorted out before you plan of conceiving again, if you describe your clinical condition in detail I can advise you certain tests and then maybe suggest you management for that so that your back pain issues become better. Also your lower back pain should not be an issue for your second pregnancy if you work up for your back properly. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hello Mr Vivek. Thank you for contacting. You should go for a health check up. Prolonged sitting is bad for health. You should move around after every 30 minutes. A little walk can help. Stretching and strengthening of leg muscles can help. You should monitor your diet too. Eat balanced and at regular intervals. I hope this will help you.

Hi lybrate-user. The symptoms which you mentioned may be of both as doubted. But to confirm, you didn't mention like how many days cycle is urs, whether 28 days or 30 days etc. And are your periods regular or not? this is because, based on that you need to get the iui done during your fertile window only and hope that's done too. But sometimes though hpt is negative, there are chances that you can be pregnant. So better you wait for few more days and get the test done once again, orelse meet a gynaecologist for further advise.

JOINT DISORDERS

JOINT DISORDERS
Joint Disorders
A ‪#‎joint‬ is where two or more bones come together, like the ‪#‎knee‬, ‪#‎hip‬, ‪#‎elbow‬, or ‪#‎shoulder‬. Joints can be damaged by many types of injuries or ‪#‎diseases‬, including
1. ‪#‎Arthritis‬ - inflammation of a joint. It causes pain, stiffness, and swelling. Over time, the joint can become severely damaged.
2. ‪#‎Bursitis‬ - inflammation of a fluid-filled sac that cushions the joint.
3. ‪#‎Dislocations‬ - injuries that force the ends of the ‪#‎bones‬ out of position
Treatment of ‪#‎JointProblems‬ depends on the cause. If you have a ‪#‎SportsInjury‬, treatment often begins with the RICE (Rest, Ice, Compression, and Elevation) method to relieve pain, reduce swelling, and speed healing. Other possible treatments include pain relievers, keeping the injured area from moving, rehabilitation, and sometimes surgery. For arthritis, injuries, or other diseases, you may need joint replacement surgery to remove the damaged joint and put in a new one.
