I am a heart patient and had angiography done 3 years back. I am continuously taking medicines. I felt back pain on the right side but not constant and moves on shoulder right hand and while turning head towards right feels pain. And the pain keeps moving. I consulted a cardio who advised to take sorbitrate when pain comes and if not subsided, to take ultracet 1-1. I had apple pain relief gels for 2 - 3 days but no relief. Kindly advice.

Ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take.

I suggest you follow the below for your condition: take mag phos 6x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and ice packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately. Change your mattress/sleeping posture and see if this helps you.

Yes, travelling on bike for such a long distance can cause your back pain. You need to do back exercises which will strengthen your back and give support to your spine. Also hot fomentation 3 times a day would help.

I have noticed some swelling on my back for the past few days. It gets okay if I put some iodex or spray. I feel that I might have pulled the muscle or is it a side effect of statin? The inflammation is on one side of the back below the shoulder.

Yes you can go for it with the surgery at this age if you can successfully pass the pre aesthetics checkup PAC. Which involve check up of your heart blood liver kidney urine test and all important vital organs including a clearance from physician and cardiologist this is all these things are optimum and you have a good exercise tolerance then you can definitely go for the surgery at this age and if there is any problem with any major system of your body then you might consider going for Risk benefit analysis and then decide on the basis of that whether or not you should go for the surgery.

I have nervous pain on above my shoulder what should i do to remove pain permanently.
Hi your nervous pain might be occurring due to some compression of nerve in you neck region (cervical region) this can happen due to tight muscle as you are young it should be definately due to tight muscle aroung you neck so try to take some hot pack twice a day for 10 minutes each your muscle will get relaxed and then you should feel better if not, then I think you should show it to some physiotherapist.

Having muscle pain since the last day for playing football after while what should I do?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It is only a one day story and it can happen when your muscles are over exerted to which they are not accustomed. You can do ice packs and take gentle anti inflammatory medication which suits you and you should be ok in next 4-5 days. Also do not indulge in any sporting activities for now till you are pain free and try to resume with gradual pre activity warm up and with short increments in physical activity each day. 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.
