Change the mattress. Have calcium rich diet. Exercise your back to improve muscle tone so that circulation is maintained while sleeping.

I am having this problem of pimples a lot since very long. How should i get rid of them with least use of medication because i even consulted a shin specialist and he gave me a few medicated facewas and some medicines but they were of no use. So please suggest me the best you can? And my face gets red very sooner and nothing hot suits me. And it itches a lot in the sun.

Hello lybrate-user, first you need to find reason for your back pain. It can be due to any fall from bike or height, any gastric problems like ulcer, gas trouble or may be due to nerve compression of backbone. First find the reason nd have medications. Regarding medications there are both oral medications nd external therapies. In oral medications for nerve compression or pain due to fall, you need have decoction nd pills along with fermented liquid. But in case gastric problems, you need to have medicated ghee. Take care nd find the reason.

If it aggravates in morning, most probably it is a sign of early rhumatoid. You should watch your food. Have light, easily digestible foods. Do not take milk, curd, rajma, chhole, paneer, fruits etc. Keep the bowels clear. Contact me privately for medical advice.

Dear lybrate-user, For the knees - Gentle massage over knees with lukewarm herbal pain relieving oils daily for about 15-20 minutes and hot fomentation afterwards will greatly help in subsiding the pain. Ayurveda’s Panchakarma offers specialized treatment of JANU BASTI for knee pains - these procedures would give strength to your knee and reduce the pain and stiffness. Regular oiling the joint will improve the lubrication also. Use knee caps over the joints and avoid over exertion of the joint. Avoid sitting crossed legs. For Excess Weight - Go for a complete detox of your body with the help of ayurveda's Panchakarma therapy. It includes Abhyangam (Massage with medicated oils) n medicated steam bath. This wud rejuvenate your body - improving your work efficiency and bettering your sleep. It will also strengthen your nerves and muscles. These procedures will take out the harmful toxins out of your body - cleansing your body. Some specialized therapies as Panchakarma are needed for Weight loss (Lekhana BAsti etc.).
