1. Take a break-use 20-20 rule, take a break for 20 second after working in computer for 20 minutes and look at some thing 20 feet away. 2. Blink frequently to prevent dryness of eyes 3. Use of computer glass- it optimises your eye sight when you are looking at digital screen and helps to decrease glare 4. Keep your monitor bright- this decreases flicker 5. Use proper lighting like incandescent light 6. Check position of monitor- monitor should be placed 4-5 inches below eye level and 20-28 inches from eyes 7. Adjust, screen resolution 8. Minimise glare- clean monitor regularly to remove dust and place an anti glare screen 9. Try massage or eye cupping- massaging the area around the eye will relax eye muscle. Rub your hands together to create friction and warmth, then gently cup your palm over the closed eye and rest them 10. Take multivitamin tablet containing vitamin a, c, e, b complex, zinc and antioxidant (one capsule of revital daily after breakfast) 11. Go for yearly eye examination.

Good afternoon sir/mam. I am nilima, my mother is 55, fat & short, she is having problem in her knee from long time. I request please give me if any solution.

Very Good Afternoon Nilima, Thanks for writing in regards to your mother. From the given information about your mother, it appears her weight to be primary problem which may have contributed to possible wear & tear changes inside the knee by now. To be confirmed, a clinician like Physiotherapist & Orthpedic Consultant needs to assess her. There are many solutions for knee pain. Now which solution will be more apt for her can only be determined via clinical assessment & treatment. I believe knee pain for a length of time, most patients have tried doing massage, heat, pain killers to name a few. So, best solution for you & your mother is to get her on board regarding treatment of the problem. Get her to be motivated to lose weight through diet & controlled exercises. Please feel free to contact me if you wish to discuss further. I use this opportunity to express my gratitude to seek help for restoring good health. Best wishes

Hello. I suppose your wife is suffering from severe knee osteoarthritis for which she has been adviced knee replacement. Muscle cramps can be due to a number of reasons including dehydration, dyselectrolytemia, calcium or magnesium deficiency, overexertion of muscles during day and other neurological disorders. Keep her hydrated with lot of fluids. See a Rheumatologist who would examine and order tests accordingly.

This could be due to OA knee &/ obesity. Physiotherapy along with medicines will help. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency. Sleep on a hard bed with a soft bedding on it. Use no pillow under the head. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency it may have to be further investigated. Do knee exercises.

With regards to ur age the cause is probably a physical strain in the affected part .. Try to oil the knee with Ayurvedic oils or gingely oil followed by giving a hot water compress with cloth or hot water bag

One of the main reasons for not getting proper sleep is that plans made during the day time or earlier, do not succeed and mind finds ways or speculates or wanders to find ways to make the the plans work. These mental speculations repeat in mind at time of sleeping. So, due to plans not working as the mind likes to, the mind remains in agitated state due to finding no way to solve mundane plans and thus leads to frustration which avoids mind to go into sleep mode. This leads to not getting proper sleep. One has to break one's self-centeredness to avoid the thoughts and frustrations entering into mind at time of sleep leading to improper sleep. The solution is to not intentionally think further about plans, but with faith surrender to the supreme and instead of thinking about the plans it is better to read a nice book, listen to nice music or talks which do not allow mind to get frustrated with mental speculations. Drinking cow's milk in night before sleep also should help. Hope this helps,

Hi lybrate-user, post chicken pox effect will take some months to have proper recovery. Before fully recovery you performed dancing so knee pain took place. Though it was degenerative disease weakening your systems, so you are to take some nutrition along with expose to cold. Physical exhaustion and aerobic exercise causes pain. Try to take rest with good diets. Ok.

Hello arthritis is seen whole over our country. It is due to our climate change. The sedentary lifestyle and lack of exercise cause the joint pain and tenderness in many people even youths are suffering. Besides this adulterated food are also factors causing toxin deposit injoints. So young people are affected.
