For Vitamin B12 increase intake of fruits, Salads & leafy vegetables in diet. If you are nonveg then you will also get max amt of B12 from it For Vit D increase exposure to sunlight between 11 to 3 pm increase intake of dairy products if you are nonveg increase intake of eggs & fish. If your neck discomfort & arm tingling continues plse see a Spine surgeon.

The ulnar part of my wrist has been experiencing some pain for the past few months. I am usually very active and workout everyday. But this is hindering my exercise routine. Have rested it enough but there is no relief. Have been doing wrist rehabilitation exercises regularly- while that has reduced the pain but its not completely gone. Please suggest what can I do.

Hi this is Kumaraswamy I suffering back pain from last six months can pls give me medical advice.

BAMS

First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket. And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back. You may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * surya namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * in diet vegetable protein of cereal, b complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Please seek an opinion from general surgeon or urologist on your usg findings first, your back pain may actually be due to degenerative changes in spine or it can also be due to secondary issues. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Its excellent to hear that you have been keeping active even at the age of 58. Well done, indeed! Unless you have persistent pain around your knee or hip you have nothing to worry. You may be having some stiffness of the knee from underlying arthritis. Since the level of pain is bearable, there is nothing to worry.

Dear lybrate-user, pain on neck turning with pain on deep breath and that too from 4 years should not be taken lightly, it could be a lung infection of tumor growth that may spread to neck through nodes, do not waste you time and consult your family doctor for primary screening.

1.. Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. 2.. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. 3.. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. 4.. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. 5.. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

Requires examination and investigation in detail. Presently investigations suggested: hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid vit d xray of the affected part. Anyway you may try sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful use no pillow under the head do hot fomentation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform
