I would like to examine you in detail & investigate. Preliminary investigations suggested: hb, tlc, dlc, esr, blood sugar fasting & pp, uric acid, vit d urine r/e x-ray of the affected part. Anyway it may be tried. Do hot fomentation paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1 tab od x10. Orthotrue 1tab. (from mankind) od x 10 days make sure that, there is no allergy to any of the medicines. For emergency treatment contact your nearest hospital or family doctor. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick mattress are harmful. Use no pillow under the head. Do neck, back & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. If it does not give relief in 4-5 days, contact me again.

Apply hot fomentation twice daily. Avoid bending in front. Postural correction- sit tall, walk tall. Extension exercises x 15 times x twice daily - lying on tummy, take left arm up for 3 seconds, then bring it down, right arm up for 3 seconds, bring down. Bring right leg up, hold for 3 seconds, bring it down. Then right leg up and hold for 3 seconds and bring it down. Repeat twice a day- 10 times. Bhujang asana -- lie flat on your stomach, keeping the palms out, bend the neck backward, take a deep breath and while holding it for 6 seconds, raise the chest up. Release breath and relax your body. Repeat the exercise 15 times twice daily. Core strengthening exercises- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day.

Dear, unfortunately, there is no method to remove the stone. However, diabetes can be well controlled with appropriate medications. Pl. Follow up regularly with your diabetologist who can help you to control your blood sugars. Also try to incorporate coconut oil in your diet as it is a medium chain triglyceride which will benefit in your condition.

My Grandfather is 80 years old. Recently he fell on a Railway platform. As a result his left Femur got fractured, to be precise his left femoral head cracked. Doctors have suggested a surgery for the same. Our concern is that his HbA1c is very low at 11 and his diabetes is under control now (below 100) is there any risk of infection or complications arising due to low HbA1c count and diabetes?

Dear lybrate-user, Namaskar, It is prferable to have HbA1C below 6-6.5 for planned surgeries. But now that this is an emergency situation, he can go for the operation with a closed monitoring of Blood sugar post -operatively. Take care.

I Get Lower Back Pains Very Bad And It Bothers Alot It Gets Worse And Worse Everyday What Could It Be?
Hello, If the lower back pain is aggravated day by day and if you experience it's referred pain towards your lower limbs then it might be Sciatica. General causes for lower back pain are spondylysis. Kindly get a X-ray LS Spine to get the correct diagnosis done. To get temporary relief you can do back strengthening exercise and sleep on a hard floor. Hot fomentation will also be helpful for you. Kindly revert your findings for precise treatment plan. Tk care.

Neck pain radiating to arm n fore arm because cerbical spondylitis. Then use cervical collar, avoid 2 wheeler driving. Cervical collar will take the weight of head. So strain on neck bones will be decrease. Maintain erect posture at everywhere. Use cervical pillow. Or towel folding under neck. For back pain use folded bedsheet under your low back. For knee arthritis use pillow under knees horizontally.
