Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am dr akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Since you have pain in shoulder region since 7 days only and that also happened after sleep at night, I would advise you: 1) to start with anti-inflammatory medications( short course) 2) intensive physical therapy 3) ice packs and local analgesic spray for local application. Please let me know if your pain persists after 3 weeks /sos. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Short arcs: lie flat on your back or sit upright with your leg placed horizontally on a flat surface like a chair or bed. Place a rolled up towel under the knee. Pull your toes towards you and clench you thigh muscles. Slowly lift your foot up off the bed until your knee is straight (keep your knee resting on the towel). Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower them on the chair. Repeat 10 times twice a day. Straight leg raise: lie flat on your back. One leg and knee will be straight and other leg should be bent. Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise. Standing calf stretch stand away from a wall and.

If symptomatic. Go for surgery. Laparoscopic would be a good option for both surgeries. The mentioned medicines will not be effective in your case.

I have pain in my left shoulder. When I sleep with that side   I feel uncomfortable in my left hand  and arm.
Massage with your thumbs from the mid points of the shoulder blades on both sides towards the lower back of your head up to lower level of the ears. Use oil or water for massage. Rotate your head clockwise and anticlockwise, forward and down, left and right a few times. Do for 5 to 10 times morning and evening. Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Consult after 5 days. For further guidance and treatment.

I am 18 years old I am facing problem with joint pain  from 1 month, what can I do?
Joint pain you can relieve short-term joint pain with a few simple techniques at home. 1) protect the joint with a brace or wrap. 2) rest the joint, avoiding any activities that cause you pain. 3) ice the joint for about 15 minutes, several times each day. 4) compress the joint using an elastic wrap. 5) elevate the joint above the level of your heart. 6) if you are overweight do exercise like swimming or cycling to reduce weight. Still you don't get relief consult me via lybrate as further investigation may be needed.

My mom is always having pain in her legs specially at the time of sleeping. Please suggest.
I think your mom may be a home maker and stands for a longer time. Ask her to do hot water and cold water immersion in a tub alternatively for each about 3 min as a whole for 10 to 15 min. Of possible give her a slow gentle massge for her foot. This will surely reduce her pain and she can sleep well. Take care of your mom. Give her some rest.

My left toe's joint are paining for 3 months long. There is a little swell. Pain killers are not effective. I believe that it started from small sprain. Your advice please??

DNHE, BPTh/BPT, weight management specialist
Physiotherapist, Kolkata
What's your age/sex? if there was any trauma to the toe you should get an x-ray done to rule out any bone injury. If there is a fracture then you should see any good orthopedic doctor. Also get your uric acid levels tested.
