Twitching can be because of Vitamin deficiencies or muscle tightness&weakness. Improve your diet. Supplement it with Vitamin B12 if you are vegetarian. Also, in addition to this, start doing some stretching and strengthening exercises for the lower limbs like calf stretch, hamstring and quadriceps stretch. Hope this will help!!

I am 19 years old male. I have been doing regular workouts for more than 2 years now. And my workouts includes lot of cardio. I more than 4000 skipping s with jump rope. I am used to it and I don't feel any difficulty. But I recently felt something on back of my leg behind my knees above the calf muscles. It feels like a string or vein or nerve is pulled and tightens and feels like it will tear with a sharp pain only when I straighten my leg. But still I could jump without any pain for more than ever. But after taking rest it starts again. But for your information there is no swelling or pain around the area. But sharp pain do occurs when I try to straighten my leg as if the string will tear? I don't know what it is. Please help me.

Hello dear it's may due to muscle tightness of hamstring or may due to meniscus tear without investigation we can't say properly so please consult with a good orthopaedic doctor for clinical correction. Before it you do 2-3 days hot fermentation and hamstring straching if find relief then continue do this. And yes stop skipping, jumping, climbing stairs, floor sitting, indian toilet and cross leg sitting.

As you are lactating still, you may not menstruate what is called lactational amenorrhoea. As you are waning breast feeding so be cautious about contraception. Preferably your husband use condoms till your menstruation starts then consult your gynaecologist for contraception advice.

Importance Of Comfortable Shoes!

Importance Of Comfortable Shoes!

Always wear a pair of comfortable laced-up shoes which support your feet, rather than high heels and slippers to prevent yourself from falling.

I have a pain in my right knee and I feel like there is fluid. Feels like it moves up and down while I walk up and down stairs.

Dear, generally it happens in mid thirty and beyond ages. Some times it may be due to some trauma also. You can do vigorous knee pumping exercise by which that fluid may be reabsorbed or consult physiotherapist.

Backache is the commonest ailment. Do not worry, rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. As you have mentioned that you are not a diabetic, your clinical condition is most likely arising out of degenerative changes in lower back region. To advise you on how we have to manage your clinical condition, ideally we need, 1) clinical examination (motor, sensory and evaluation of dtr) of both lower limbs 2) mri ls spine to correlate examination findings with radiology once I have them in front of me, I can tell you what will be the ideal management in your case. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
