For your father----* walking regularly at slow pace without unduly straining helps as it improves blood circulation around joint and eases the joint. *you can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take bryonia 200---twice daily morning and evening and give feedback after 7 days

Hello, Some primary headaches can be triggered by lifestyle factors, including: Alcohol, particularly red wine Certain foods, such as processed meats that contain nitrates Changes in sleep or lack of sleep Poor posture Skipped meals Stress insufficient sleep or rest Overexertion Nutritional deficiencies A secondary headache is a symptom of a disease that can activate the pain-sensitive nerves of the head. Any number of conditions — varying greatly in severity — may cause secondary headaches. Get your blood pressure checked, make a chart. Let me know about the readings, will give you medication accordingly. Also, get eyes tested. Medication: Meantime, can start with homoeopathic medicine - Bakson's Mig Aid tablet/ after every 2 hours. For Backache: Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). Lie down on bed on your back without pillow. Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - take both of them thrice daily for 1 week. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Get back to me thereafter.

Hi You may see a physician for tremors diagnosis after gradual giving up alcohol and intake of vitamin B complex, B6,B1B12, methycobalamin supplements. A neurologist can help rule out Parkinson's or badal ganglia disease causing similar symptoms. Another cause is liver ,after long addiction and heavy alcoholism, liver function tests and ultrasound for liver, pancreas may be required. Diabetes and thyroid function tests for other common reasons may also be screened.

Dear lybrate-user I think you have probably have a back problem which needs detailed evaluation and imaging to come to a diagnosis. Once diagnosis is made we can treat you accordingly. I feel you should take calcium supplements as well.

Natural home remedies for meralgia paresthetica there are certain simple home based treatment options that can help in the management of the symptoms associated with the condition. While the efficacy of home based treatment is fairly limited, 1) vitamin b12 supplements help in reducing burning and tingling sensation. Increase the intake of meat, egg and poultry products. Dairy products are the only source of vitamin b12 for vegetarians, hence low fat dairy products are recommended. 2) physical therapy is considered useful in relieving the nerve entrapment. Physical therapy attempts to strengthen the muscles of the thigh and inner hip region to reduce the entrapment. 3) recommend that patient should avoid wearing tight clothing, especially below the navel region. Tight clothing can increase the risk of nerve entrapment. 4) obese individuals are at a higher risk of developing this condition and hence weight management is considered very important. Regular exercise coupled with dietary modifications like reducing the intake of processed foods, oily and starchy foods and increasing the intake of dietary fiber is very useful. 5) cold compress is beneficial in alleviating some of the symptoms including burning and itching sensation.

My right leg angle was broken before one month. Now doctor removed the plaster. But I have pain on the angle. What i have to do for relief in this problem.

Fracture takes longer time to heal. You may have some discomfort for 3 months. Some stiffness is also expected after immobilization for 1 month. All you need is some ankle mobilization exercises. You can also dip your foot in lukewarm water for few minutes every 4-6 hrs which will help in relieving pain and improving ankle movements.

I am 46 yrs of age I find discomfort at my back . Drs suggest me to go for l5-s1 fusion surgery. Is the success rate good or any alternative treatment for this? please suggest me the better option.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

Not all patients of backache & pain joints need surgery. Most of them can be managed without operation morning stiffness in back & other joints is quite a common condition. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take bio d3 max 1tab odx10days ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days do back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take if no relief in a week, then kindly visit me personally.

Nowadays back pain is a very common complaint in young adults. So donot worry. It can be due to various reasons any injury, muscle strain eg-sudden twist while lifting object, bad posture, overuse of muscle or any internal disease like spondylitis, infection etc. Many of the problem occurs for which we are not aware. After looking at your pain I am recommending you some precautions and treatment to get rid from this pain. Precautions: 1. Avoid forward bending, if required then bend your knees first and then bend forward. 2. Avoid weight lifting. 3. Sit in chairs or car seats with proper back support. 4. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your back like sidelying. 5. Get enough vit d from sun as vit d keep bones strong including spine, 6. Drink plenty of water to enhance the inter vertebral disks 7. Avoid standing in the one position for a long time. 8. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your back. Physio care: I would recommend you for i-care treatment that is especially for back or neck pain. Rest required but it doesn't mean a complete bed rest. Do not over exert your body. Work take rest and then work so that you do not feel tired and started paining. Treatment- 1. Apply ice or heat which ever suits you directly to the area of low back pain will decrease swelling and inflammation, and ease your discomfort. Apply it for 10 to 15 minutes only. 2. Relaxing for 5 minutes after ice or heat treatment. Massage - ask someone to massage your painful area using fingers or thumb. Massage using kneading technique. Slightly press the thumb and start rotating as it helps to induce relaxation, relieve pain, and reduce levels of stress chemicals, such as cortisol and noradrenaline. It will give you pain relief for time being. 3. After massage again relax for 5 min and apply any pain relieving ointment eg - volini or oraflame gel etc. Make sure not to do massage with the gel, it should not penetrate the body. Just a topical application of gel should be done. 4. Again relax your body for 5 minutes and perform some normal back extension and hamstring stretching exercises to get relief from your pain. Other exercises that can be done in pain are: 1. Straight leg raising 2. Knee to chest. 3. Hamstring stretch. 4. Back extensors stretches and strengthening. 5. Gluteal stretch. 6. Prone on elbow. All the above can be done for 10-15 times with the hold (stretch) time of 5 -6 secs while performing exercises if pain occurs then would recommend you to stop doing exercise. Massage or slightly rub the painful area and consult your near by physio to diagnose the actual cause of the pain as he/she can guide you proper exercise plan which will be beneficial for you after checking grade of your back pain. If you did not understand or have any doubt regarding the i-care plan, please inform or send me an email at swatisagar121@gmail. Com.
