I am 34Y Male, had weight upto 105 kgs till 2013 now reduced to 75 kgs. I do walk and job 5 days a week upto 1 hour. I drink 1-2 bottles of beer 650 ml every saturday mostly from last year. My gallbladder is removed in 2012. Had high BP in 2013 but now 95 percent of time remain normal without medics and those 5 percent are in winters. I eat unhealthy food once a week. My diet is for 6 days a week, morning milk with cornflakes full bowl, 2 chapatis and butter milk in lunch and 2 chapati in dinner but I do like sweets a lot and I eat a lot of sweets many times. Now problem is I had a panic attack last october, went for ECG and Tropo I test but it was normal. Then slowly it went fine. Now again from last 2 weeks I am feeling same. Now its not panic but I feel pressure left chest side. I went for ECG last week but it was fine. Now 3 days back I had a severe chest pain left side and I got panicked. Still ride my bike 20 kms went to doctor had normal ECG and normal Tropo I again. After that that pain was in center chest and in exact back side and even hard to move my neck. So I think its a muscle pain. I did a complete body check up and my LDL is 134 and Uric is 7.33, these are only on higher side else all are normal. I am feeling many times and my muscles pain a bit more these days. My left thigh and calf muscle give problem while jogging for long. Also I have a very good gas and acidity problem. Now every time I have pain or pressure near chest I feel its fine but I got panicked. Now I want to get assure that my heart is fine and in near future I do not get any heart problem so that I will not get panicked every time. This is making life problematic. Is there any solution to my problem

Your pain and ill health feelings are related to anxiety and you need to contorl mind by meditation and yoga. If not feeling fine you need counselling. Reassure your mind that you have no serious disease or heart pain as the tests are normal. Keep doing exercises. You may also do a TMT test for final clarification in heart health.

Next time increase the duration and intensity of your exercise gradually and you won't have a problem. For the time being focus on stretching after work out. Never miss it. Continue exercising and you will be all right in another 15 days. Remember to hydrate yourself adequately.

Postures for a Fit Spine

M Ch. Ortho, MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS

Postures for a Fit Spine

The way we sit, walk, bend or stand is hugely dependent on one very vital organ of the human body; the spine. The spinal column provides strength and support to your entire framework. It has nerves, muscles, bones and tendons; all of which enhance proper functioning of your body. The human brain sends signals to the nerves in your spinal cord, a mass of nerve fibers and tissues ensconced within the spine, which further prompts every single part of your body to perform minute and notable actions all the same. A spine injury can, thus impair your health; in many cases it can even turn out to be fatal. Care should be taken to avoid sources of spine shock or injury. If an injury has already been acquired, it should be treated either through exercising or through medical assistance. 

A few postures to reap the benefits of a fit spine:

  1. Twist your spine either early in the morning or after a tiring day: Fold one leg while the other leg remains perched on the folded one. If the left leg is folded the left elbow should be rested on your perched right knee and the right palm should be placed on the yoga mat behind your right hip. This posture can be repeated by folding the right leg as well. It increases spine mobility by twisting it to the end of its range sideways. Muscular spine aches can be remedied by following this posture once each day.  
  2. Do not slouch but sit straight: Some people are in the habit of slouching when they sit or stand. This is an absolutely wrong thing to do if your spine health is of any concern to you. Stretch out your shoulder blades and remain erect while standing and the same should be followed while sitting. Bending one's spine, unless it is necessary, can be very harmful.   
  3. Stretch your spine in three directions: This exercise is a good way to allay the tension your spine has to undergo every day. Sit with folded legs, intertwine your fingers and stretch your arms upward, in front and at the back to expand your spine to the full.   
  4. The downward doggy posture can relieve back pain: In this yoga posture, one is expected to stretch his or her legs according to the width of the person's back and stoop forward by placing the palms on a yoga mat. Knees and elbows should not bend.

Low Back Pain - What Increases Your Risk

Low Back Pain - What Increases Your Risk

Risk factors you can change with lifestyle changes.

  • Not getting regular exercise
  • Doing a job or other activity that requires long periods of sitting, heavy lifting, bending or twisting, repetitive motions, or constant vibration, such as using a jackhammer or driving certain types of heavy equipment
  • Smoking People who smoke are more likely than people who don't smoke to have low back pain.
  • Being overweight. Excess body weight, especially around the waist, may put strain on your back although this has not been proved. But being overweight often also means being in poor physical condition, with weaker muscles and less flexibility. These can lead to low back pain.
  • Having poor posture. Slumping or slouching on its own may not cause low back pain. But after the back has been strained or injured, bad posture can make pain worse. 'Good posture' generally means your ears, shoulders, and hips are in a straight line. If this posture causes pain, you may have another condition such as a problem with a disc or bones in your back.
  • Being under stress. Stress and other emotional factors are believed to play a major role in low back pain, particularly chronic low back pain. Many people unconsciously tighten their back muscles when they are under stress.

I met with an accident in 2012 and in that accident the calcanious bone was fractured after operation one week later it got infected and gangarin developed in my feet so doctor removed the infected calcanious bone and all the infected tissues from my feet and after that they have done skin transplant in the feet by taking skin from the thigh to cover the open wound now it is completely covered and healed but my problem is there is no flesh in feet around the calcanious bone region only skin is there over the feet bone so I can't give any pressure on my right foot and cannot walk in bare foot, even don't have sensation in that area also. I walk now although I limp with the help of applying soft silicon gel in my sock and wearing shoe but always had a fear that my skin in lower feet will be damaged or get cut while walking and I won't be able to know as I dnt have sensation in that area as it happened 2-3 times earlier also and then the slight cut took weeks to heal also and by that time I couldn't wear anything on my feet so that it will dry up and heal. Now I want to know is there any permanent solution through any further surgery possible so that I will have sensation in my feet back and can walk without any fear.

Unfortunately it happened, but there is remedy. There are braces available that may transmit the weight directly from leg (below knee) to the boot. It will protect your heal and also provide you confidence to walk. Please consult you orthopedician.
