Chemotherapy induced neuropathy may cause pain in the distal extremities. Neuropathic pain usually occurs in the nature of tingling and numbness and may extend to severe burning sensation in extreme cases. Severity depends on chemotherapy drug used, number of cycles and other comorbid factors like diabetes. Share the details of chemotherapy drug used and blood reports for treatment.

It is normal to develop some soreness anytime you use a muscle group vigorously or for a prolonged period. Soreness in your legs that develops immediately after running usually fades over the course of several hours. Report any sudden or severe pain in your legs after running to your doctor. For pain relief soak your sore muscles in very warm water in the bath or a hot tub to ease your pain and reduce inflammation. Alternating hot and cold baths works especially well for some people. Hope you feel better soon.

It is rheumatoid arthritis. Every joint swells and my mother suffers severe pain. Specially foot joints, finger joints and hand joints. Though treatment is going on some time it is unmanageable. Dr. Have prescribed steroids. Is it safe to continue?

No steroids is for instant relief for pains. But it let your disease in to bad conditions as it decrease your immunity. So my advice is to not continue it. Just follow ayurvedic medicines for long term effects.

Dear sir, if this pain is severe with the first step in the morning and gradually reduce after walking a few step, then you might be suffering from plantar fasciitis, with a spur may be. 1. Apply cold pack, 15 min wrapped in cotton bag or handkerchief, for 3-4 times. 2. If you are going for walks, take a break for few days. 3. Don't walk bear feet in the house or outside. 4. There are few stretching and exercise that can help in reducing the pain. 5. If you have foot alignment issue or any other condition then using corrective orthotics and footwear can help. For further help, you can write to me personally.

Pain in right knee. Sir/Mam, I have moderate pain in my right knee only, but while bending there is cracking sound in both knees. During cold weather right knee's pain slightly increases and also it feels some inflammatory inside. I consulted a orthopedic doctor and he advised me to have x ray. And then advised me drugs (osteoma PLUS, ECOTOX, RABIKEM DSR, AND DICEF TAB) each 30 tablets for 30 days. But after taking all these medicines I don't feel any improvement. I asked another doctor who advised me to have CALCIUM 500 mg VITAMIN D3 500 iu tablets for couple of months and do some light exercise. please suggest me what should I do? My age is 26 years, weight 60 kgs, No one in my family has this problem, No injury or accident happened. BUT AS I LIVE ALONE AND GENERALLY HAVE FOOD IN HOTEL, SO THERE IS IRREGULARITIES IN MEAL AND ALSO DON'T GET PROPER DIET. (for last 10 years)

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).
