I have gout. And also swelling at ankle & knees. My full leg pains but more at the knee joint. Blood test shows high uric acid. Have started medications for the same. But there is no any relief yet. Almost a month now. How can my uric acid low down. Do I need to do changes in my diet?

Dear lybrate user homoeopathic constitutional treatment will give you permanent cure, changes in diet may give you mild relief but taking everything in moderation is the rule for healthy life, generally more proteinaceous foods as legumes, red meat are said to be avoided,

I have a back pain from 1year I visited a doctor they said nothing happened all right gave some tablets my back pain not control and after after neck pains also came how can I control this problems.

There are so many causes of back pain. In your age group postural, trauma spondylitis or disc prolapse are the common causes. If in investigation nothing comes it may be due to wrong posture or some remote injury of affected part may be there. Try to walk and sit in right posture. Sleep on hard bed. Massage the affected area with warm oil. Do mild lumber and cervical exercises daily.

Hi, my mother is 60 year old and is sufferring from a type - 2 since 15 years. She has severe knee pains since four years. Kindly advice.

MD - Medicine
Rheumatologist, Gurgaon
Good evening considering her age, it looks more of an osteoarthritis. However with diabetes it is neccessary to rule out other forms of arthritis as well. A examination would be helpful. If not possible, you can post a picture of the x ray of both knees (standing once). Avoid strong pain killers as it can harm the kidneys with diabetes as background.

If you have any doubt,kindly do the Thyroid profile from laboratory.. Thyroid problem leads to many symptoms of your health..so it cannot be confirmed without proper investigations..Pain can happen from injury,lifting weight or irregular sleeping postures too.

I am 30 year old male. I used to run regularly, but one day I felt pain in my knees. The pain in both the knees was more prominent when I used to use stair cases, I consulted an orthopaedic surgeon and he suggested it might be due to ACL, and he asked for X-Ray, but due to some assignment I was not able to continue with treatment. I took complete rest for two weeks avoiding stress on my knees, and now I don't feel that much discomfort while using stair cases. Want to know if I can continue my running and basic exercise ? Is there any way to test the ACL condition at home ?

Advice. Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- 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. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Hi, since your taking us for 6 session and there is no relief I would like to tell u dat d origin of the pain can b something else. In any orthopedic conditions der can be problem in one part of your body and referred pain to some other part of your body which is very common in heel and wrist. I wud like to tell u to visit any McKenzie therapist in your area to find d root cause of the pain. Once d root cause is found out your prob can get solved completely.

I am a diabetes patient and my sugar level is 140 before meal and 170 after meal and I also have high knee pain since 10 years. I have consulted a doctor about this along with diabetes. He gave me these medicines named. ALGINA 650 - twice in a day for 30 days after meal BIGOMET SR* 500 - in night after meal OSICARE PLUS- in night after meal for 30 days OSTEOCHEK-D3 - one time in 7 days. Please suggest that is a correct medicine treatment.

Except for Bigomet SR all other medicines are for your knee joint pain. Bigomet is for your diabetes. With this medicines your sugar are little bit on higher side. So you should consult your doctor to increase dosage of your diabetes medications.

Along this journey of BPH / Urine retention / Tamsulosin / Urolift, etc etc. I have for the last 3 months been dealing with lower back pain, it's pretty much constant and when I get up from sitting or from bed I am stooped over a few minutes until I can get straightened out then I seem to be ok.

Hello lybrate user, if you are still on medications for problems you have mentioned better go through only external care for your lower back like - apply ksheerabala taila/ dhanwantara taila and keep hot water bag over there for 15min which will relive you from back pain and strengthen your back bones as such. Thank you.
