It is common if you sleep on same side too long. Start doing some exercises. Do some stretches daily. I am sure this will improve. If the biceps pain is accompanied with pain in chest, consult cardiologist immediately. If the biceps pain persists even after exercises you may consult neurologist to rule out any muscular dystrophy. Thank you ! I hope I helped you.

Foods to eat/ avoid for arthritis and inflammatory pain

Different foods have different properties. Here are some foods to have and a few you must refrain from if you are suffering from arthritis and inflammatory pain:

Include these foods in your diet.
1) cherries - these contain anthocyanocides which assist in lowering uric acids, thus reducing the level of pain.
2) ginger - eating fresh ginger of drinking ginger root tea is advisable if suffering from arthritis and inflammatory pain. The gingerols present in it include anti-inflammatory compounds which are extremely helpful.
3) pineapple - there exists in pineapples, an element called bromelain which is a very effective anti-inflammatory.
4) raw apple cider vinegar - anti-inflammatory properties of raw apple cider vinegar are also very beneficial. It can be consumed by drinking a tablespoon of the vinegar mixed in about 250ml water or as salad dressing.
5) turmeric - turmeric or as we call it haldi, has anti-oxidant as well as anti-inflammatory properties.
6) omega 3 fatty acids - omega 3 fatty acids also have anthocyanocides. Which lower the levels of uric acids. Eating more of chia seeds, flax seeds and fish is also encouraged.

And the foods to avoid are,
1) sugary foods - sugary foods are like toxins which cause inflammations and lead to more pains in the body. Hence, avoid foods with excessive sugar when suffering from arthritis and inflammatory pain.
2) omega 6 oils - these oils, if consumed in high amounts, cause inflammations. It is advisable to replace these foods with healthier foods.
3) fried foods: deep fried foods are cooked at high temperatures and thus induce inflammation.
4) salt - this happens to some people where excess intake of sodium increases the pain in the joints. Hence, lowering consumption is not a bad idea.

It looks like inflammatory arthritis. Rheumatoid factor is not the only test for the disease. Please consult a good Rheumatologist.

Hello lybrate user I would like to suggest you that after physio treatment you must start regular smooth &light back exercises. After one week once you able to add back exercises in your routine then gradually increase exs to improve strength of muscle. Because pain and stiffness cycle reduce, your muscles which gets weak or less active due to pain now are able to do some work, utilize the energy for maintaining muscle power. Exs should be under expert's advice only.

Hello lybrate-user, disc herniation at l4 l5 s1 disc herniation may lead to nerve root compression, pain in that sided thigh and tingling numbness depending upon the involvement. You will need to get yourself examined clinically in order to rule out neurodeficit and assess your straight leg raising test (doctors way to quantify the seriousness of the disorder) exercises avoid high impact activities like running, jogging, jumping sports and bending forwards. Kindly follow a stable exercise routine like brisk walking in order to maintain fitness and keep the symptoms in check. Thank you.
