Hi, I have severe pain in left leg starting from back till toes. What should be done to cure the pain?
Hi lybrate-user, I have seen your question stating" severe pain in left leg starting from back till toes" on observing your profile sanya. Female 43 years 10 months 5.4 feet 80 kgs I observed that for your height 5.4 your weight should be in the range of 49 kg to 60 kgs which is slightly more. I must say here, as the age reaches in females due to various reasons ie low calcium levels and weight can affect legs and back. I suggest please get your vitamin d checked! I also guess its symptom of sciatica usaually this occur after 40s. Acupuncture works better for both sciatica and weight loss too including many acute and chronic conditions.

Take some pain killers in acute conditions but symptoms need some vivid examination to find out the cause then diagnosis. Warm foamentation May help. Few specific exercises can be consulted from me by other mode.

What is the solution for leg pain?

MD - Acupuncture, Pranic Healing, Diploma in Acupuncture
Acupuncturist,
What is the solution for leg pain?
Try this for joint pains try this. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You should not be having persistent back pain, please elaborate your problem in detail as to whether there is any pain radiating down in legs and any other symptoms like numbness, paraesthesia, weakness in legs etc do you feel fever, weight loss, loss of apetite etc if you have localized back pain, you can start with - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication which suits you - physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. Get back to me in case your symptoms do not get better in 2-3 weeks time. Actually I will advise for dynamic x rays of your back if you are not improving with conservative management after 2-3 weeks time. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

I am 32 years old and since 2009 I was suffering from leg pain and was diagnosed as sciatic pain initially and was using some pain killers and anti biotic. The problem was resolved, but again in 2012 it repeated and doctors suggested to go for MRI scan and noticed that L5 disk bulge is there and suggested to take rest for one month (bed rest) and the problem was solved. But again in 2014 same problem occurred. This time it was ok with yoga course. But whereas, one doctor suggested to take complete health check up and he identified with the results that due to diabetes I was suffering all these days. Now blood sugar levels are 130 (fasting) and 200 pp.

Your problem seems to be due to the disc bulge that you mentioned. Its unlikely that diabetes would cause a typical scaitica pain which is one sided since so long. However your levels of blood sugar currently warrant treatment. If left untreated, it can aggravate your nerve problems.

I am 28 yera old female and have a pain in my right shoulder for last 1 months. So what should I do?

Diploma in Acupuncture, Pranic Healing, MD - Acupuncture
Acupuncturist, Bangalore
Massage with your thumbs from the midpoints of your shoulder blade towards back of your head upto the lower edge of the ear on your either side. Use oil or waer. Move only upwards only. Afterwards do arm rotation forward and backward slowly acupressure and acupuncture are powerful therapies which gives relief from especially joint pains, back pains and lot of other ailments. I am suggesting you a method by which you can get instant relief and continue to do it. However you consult me privately to get permanent solution.

Although you seems underweight and you masturbate frequently and since one year you are facing problems in your chest bone going inside, but there is nothing to worry about if you doesnot feel and pain or discomfort------you are a sportsperson and just focus on your target and try to control your masturbation habit--------------if you are facing any problems in your health or problem while doing physical activity, then it is a thing of concern, and you can start with following homoeopathic medicine for your health issues----------- vitamin-d plus (bakson) take 1 tab daily with water---------------- avena-sativa q (dr reckeweg) drink 10 drops in 20 ml fresh water 3 times daily for 30 days-----------------

Requires detailed investigation and examination. 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 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 hot fomantation paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back, knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Do not ignore it. Let it not become beginning of a bigger problem. Make sure that patient is not allergic to any of the medicines that he/she is going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform.

Dear M Vasanth, Good Evening! The symptoms you have mentioned briefly are suggestive of compression of nerve at lower back possibly due to lumbar disc pathology. Kindly visit Physiotherapist to get further clarity of problem and if the need be, you may need to have MRI scan as part of investigations. You can also visit Orthopedic / Neuro-surgeon for an opinion if the pain is quite intolerable or not improving with course of physiotherapy. At any time, if you experience problems with bladder & bowel (urinary retention, loss of control, numbness in groin / anal region - you must attend Emergency department of any hospital. I wish you a speedy recovery with your promptness to act. Best Wishes

No valid proof this alexia helps. A reduction of overall weight will help. Breast reduction surgery is the definitive solution.
