Hi sir, i am suffering from cervical pain from last 2 years, now there is a lots pain in my whole body, arm, back, leg, please tell me, what should I do?

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to have a persistent neck pain as a health issue. If you have localized neck pain with no other symptoms like radiating upper limb pain, neurological symptoms like numbness, weakness, paresthesias etc, then you can start with following recommendations for initial period of 2-3 weeks: - to maintain proper posture of your neck while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or paracetamol or one 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. We will observe you for next 2-3 weeks how you respond to this conservative management protocol. If you are not feeling better, then we will have to get some investigations like dynamic x rays of your neck region. Also since you have complained of pain at other regions of the body as well, I will advise you to get some blood tests done empty stomach from a good lab and send reports across to me: cbc, esr, crp, serum electrolytes, serum vitamin b12 and d levels and thyroid profile. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards

Your vitamin d3 is in normal range. Multiple joint pains have to be evaluated by a rheumatologist by blood test for complete arthritis profile. Treatment is done by medicines on knowing diagnosis Generally mild anti inflammatory drugs like accelofenac are good for controlling along with physical therapy. But serum findings determine activity of disease process, type of arthritis and more specific treatment is given.

Neck pain could be postural, could be cause of slouching while sitting. Do some hot fomentation along with neck and shoulder exercises infront of the mirror and try to maintain a good posture.

What You Should Know About Spondyloarthritis?

Hand Surgery, M.S. (Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Ahmedabad
What You Should Know About Spondyloarthritis?

The bones and joints orchestrate very well with each other for smooth movements of various joints and the spine. However, due to various reasons, some identified and others unknown, there could be inflammation of the areas where the bones join the muscles leading to impaired movement. The range of motion could be reduced or it could be painful, thereby, limiting movement. Spondyloarthritis includes a group of inflammatory diseases that involves the bones and joints and enthuses which are areas where the ligaments and tendons attach to the bones. This causes conditions like plantar fasciitis, ankylosing spondylitis, psoriatic arthritis and reactive arthritis. The term spondyloarthritis is a blanket term to describe any of the above-mentioned conditions.

Read on to know a little more in detail about it:

Causes: While the exact etiology is not identified for sure, most patients with spondyloarthritis have an autosomal dominant gene (HLA-B27). Chronic infections could trigger the onset of the disease too.

Symptoms:

1. In all forms of spondyloarthritis, there is always inflammation of the spine, joints and entheses. If the fingers or toes are involved, there could be swelling leading to what are typically known as 'sausage digits'.

2. There is sacroiliitis which is inflammation of the joint between the pelvis and the spine, and spondylitis which is inflammation of the joints between the spines. 3. Family history and autosomal dominant gene.

Diagnosis:

A detailed medical history and physical examination form the cornerstone of a confirmed diagnosis. In addition, radiographic examination and diagnostic blood tests also could be done to confirm the diagnosis. Radiographs, especially, of the spine and the low back show typical changes including sacroilitis in suspected cases of spondyloarthritis. If the spine does not show these changes, but there is a high likelihood of spondyloarthritis, then MRI (magnetic resonance imaging) can be used to confirm the diagnosis.

As a final step, a blood test for the HLA-B27 gene can also be confirmatory. However, it is not true that a person with the gene will definitely develop the disease.

Treatment:

  1. The most important aspect of treatment is the use of pain medications and anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) which help manage pain and inflammation.
  2. Corticosteroid injections may sometimes be given directly into the joint spaces or the membranes to provide quick relief of these symptoms.
  3. ESWT / RSWT has a definite role to cure enthesopathy. Plantar fasciitis, and achillodynia can be cured with ESWT. Even small joints of hand and feet are amenable to treatment with RSWT. It is nonoperative and noninvasive treatment and has no side effects.
  4. Very rarely, stronger drugs such as methotrexate or sulfasalazine may be used.
  5. Another set of drugs known as TNF-blockers (tumor necrotizing factor blockers) are also shown to be highly effective in controlling the pain of the spine and joints.
  6. In very severe cases, surgery may be required to correct joint damages or correct severe degenerative changes.
  7. Exercise plays a very vital role in controlling the issue and improving range of motion. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

Lybrate-user, contusion will resolve with medicines and time. Partial thickness tear of acl can be managed conservatively if your activities do not involve heavy or impact sports. Meanwhile take analgesics and do hamstring strengthening exercises and knee rom exercises.

Hello lybrate-user gelatin has very limited role in rebuilding lost cartilage. It will be helpful in preventing further degeneration however if the knee is really bad you should consider a Total Knee Replacement.

I met with an accident on 09/02/2015 and suffered fracture in left medial malleolus and fracture neck of right femur and now its been 3 months I m still in pain and also have complaints about leg shortening as I have gone through dhs on right leg and screw implant in the ankle. Please assist as to how much time it will take and what are the consequences of these kind of fractures.

Shortening of the leg after fixation should not happen. Either the fixation was not properly done or you have developed a condition in the hip known as avn. This commonly occurs in those with fracture neck of femur. Please mail your xrays in private to me. I can tell if you have avn of the hip joint.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It could be due to your long term diabetic status or due to other causes like lower back etc. I would like you to consult an endocrinologist or a neurophysician, probably you will require nerve conduction studies to be done to be sure that it is due to diabetes and then appropriate management can be instituted. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr. Akshay kumar saxena Consultant orthopaedics fortis hospital, new delhi.

First ascertain the cause for your back ache. Visit an orthopaedic surgeon and get the diagnosis done. It could be postural or it could a type of arthropathy that starts at young age for which some blood tests need to be done. Once a diagnosis is made then treatment could be planned accordingly.

You have borderline high bp, reduce salt but I am not suggesting a salt free food. Avoid tinned foods as salt is a preservative. Avoid other packed foods also like chips, namkeem, street foods. Use minimum oils for cooking. Eat lots of seasonal vegetables and fruits. Reduce stress by exercise and yoga and meditation. Take a tablet of safe betablocker like metoprolol 25 mg twice daily. Get back here with progress reports only after observations, after 2 weeks. Get back here with reports. You will get more guidance from any of us here on the forum.
