Sir/mam I have ankle pain after morning running, I run on a road, I want to ask that the pain is because of solid surface or there is something else problem?

avoid walking on artificial turf like road or concrete floor and instead walk on natural surface like sand / grass. make sure your trainers (shoes) are meant for walking / jogging ( a decent branded trainer helps). good luck

I am 60 years old. Recurrently having back pain and shoulder pain. Occasionally having problem of spondylitis. Border sugar is another problem. Kindly advise.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Delhi
This could be due to lumbar spondylosis with nerve root compression. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Any way take paracetamol 250mg od & sos do back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take you may have to use lumbosacral support for some time. Avoid painful act/activities. Take medicines as prescribed it may have to be further investigated.

I am 25 year old girl I have back pain since five year please say what i should do?
Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. There are many causes of pain in lower back region. It can be due to faulty posture, related to weak muscles, issues with intervertebral disc, narrowing of spinal canal, any bony instability besides many other, so accurate diagnosis is the key to proper management of the condition. You will have to elaborate your problem as to a detailed discussion of your back pain which means mode of onset of this pain. I would also like to ask you if it is associated with any radiating leg pain or any other neurological symptoms like numbness, paraesthesias (electrical shock like abnormal sensations) or any weakness in limbs. Please also tell me about any associated symptoms like fever, weight loss etc. What medications you generally take and what has been your treatment history till now for existing problem. Ideally 5 years is quite a long time for you to be having these issues, and if examination findings point, we should think of getting a dynamic x ray of the involved region of your back done and mri scan of the spine to rule out any major pathology. 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.

I am suffering from fever from a week,
And having pain in my both knees,
And chest too so what medicine should I take...
Quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Deskjob usually leads to back and neck issues. I assume you are not involved in any physical activity. Go on a proper dieting program the pain which you are experiencing is due to inactivity and weight gain. Start with mild to moderate intensity exercises and diet. Following these instructions will definitely help you.

Hi thanks for the query. From the complaints you had described it could be problem with the knee cap. This condition is common in middle young age people which is due to softening of the joint lining of the knee cap. Initially I would advice to start some knee strengthening exercises and observe. If it is not settling down better consult your orthopedician.
