I have pain in my right leg it has swelling from last 4 days I fell from stairs what do I do ?

I have pain in my right leg it has swelling
 from last 4 days I fell from stairs what do I do ?
Hi, you might have sprained your ankle, to be on a safer side take a xray to see any hairline fracture, or consider a mri to detect soft tissue injury. For the time being, apply cold pack, every 4-5 hours for 15-20 min, observe if it reduces pain or swelling. Applying compression bandage and ankle support can help. Keep the leg elevated by 2-3 pillow. I would suggest that you should see the doctor personally as soon as possible, don't try to self medicate or ignore the injury. Please get back to me, if you need any further assistance.

At this age if you have back pain then it might be coz of wrong postures or weak muscles. So try to find out in which activities you feel pain and try to avoid or correct that.

Rule out high blood pressure or any other kidney problem do hot fomentation keep a pillow under the legs at night &/when resting. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days do knee exercises it may have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. You will need other supportive medicines also. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Don? t ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.

I am having low back ache since April 2015. I have got the MRI done and the diagnosis is Disc bulge. I got treatment for 5 months of Lyrica 75 mg, calcium, D3 and nurokind gold. I became quite o.k but lately I am having severe burning in my legs. I can not stand for more than 5 mins. My legs pain a lot. I can not walk properly if I sit on floor.

Madam you are having radiculopathy associated to your posterior herniated disc. If the condition is not improving with medication you might need further help as with injections at spine or surgery for removing the herniated disc which can be decided on the basis of your examination and Mri scans. It is better to avoid exercises in acute painful stage. Hot bag and local gel application will provide you relief. Thanks take care.

It is not absolutely necessary to remove the plate and screw. As 11 years already over it may difficult also to remove it. If it is creating some problem like infection then only it has to be removed.

My mother suffer from joint pain, her age is around, 45 Please suggest which doc should consult.

MSc in Orhopedic Physiotherapy (UK), BPTh/BPT
Physiotherapist, Bangalore
My mother suffer from joint pain, her age is around, 45
Please suggest which doc should consult.
Joint pain can be caused by a number of issues, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, bursitis, tendinitis or a strain, sprain or other injury affecting the ligaments, bursae or tendons surrounding a joint. Severe joint pain, especially when caused by degenerative conditions like arthritis, needs proper diagnosis and treatment. You should consult orthopedic doctor or physiotherapist if her joint pain is accompanied by swelling, redness and tenderness, or lasts for more than three days. But, you can get rid of mild joint pain with the help of natural home remedies. Try hot and cold compresses alternating hot and cold compresses can also help ease joint pain. Heat therapy helps decrease pain, increase blood flow and relax sore muscles and joints. Cold therapy reduces inflammation and numbs the areas around the affected joint. Best wishes.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. This is acute low backache and if your pain is only localized to your back with no other symptoms: then initially I will advise you: - rest for 3-5 days - ice packe at home 3-4 times in a day local analgesic spray (dynapar qps ) for local application - anti-inflammatory and muscle relaxant for 5-7 days - to maintain proper posture of your back initially at all times - physical therapy with modalities only, once pain subsides, then gentle back exercises can be initiated. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings your condition should actually become better if you follow what I have advised in next week to 10 days. In case pain does not improve or increase or there are any other neurological/systemic symptoms which appear, then you may contact me. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

You need to take care of your posture as you said you have to sit for long hours. Sit erect and den work and you should stretch your back after every half an hour or 1 hour. Also do some yoga exercises especially for back like snake asann.

If you have leg pain then you have to rule out the causes for having leg pain. First of all check your weight and your haemoglobin levels as this may not be due to your knee joint or back pain. If not, the pain radiates down the back of thigh and legs then it might be due to sciatica. Kindly consult the nearby physiotherapist. Hope you recover soon from the leg pain. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having pain in the joints. You can do hot water steaming to reduce the headache which might be due to sinusitis.
