The complaints and ymptoms mentioned by you point towards a possible intervertebral disc prolapse. It needs a detailed history and examination. For starters you can do the following, 1) take rest for few days (3-5) 2) avoid bending and lifting heavy objects 3) can use local heat application and gels 4) pain killers.

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. 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. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. For emergency treatment contact your nearest hospital or family doctor. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again.

Go for an evening walk. Exercising at any time is good for you. But evening activity may be particularly beneficial because many people's metabolism slows down toward the end of the day. Thirty minutes of aerobic activity before dinner increases your metabolic rate and may keep it elevated for another two or three hours, even after you've stopped moving. What that means for you: Those dinner calories have less of a chance to take up permanent residence on your hips.

It could be a ligament stress /strain due to overuse especially if the part had some trauma history. Rest is important until the ligament or tendon heals in 8-14/15 months time. If rest is not possible then you should continue the use of orthotic support for both your knee and foot.

Hi!For you this may seem to be a very big problem, but actually it is not. This can be avoided by attempting the doing the things which u think are tough. At first this may seem very difficult ,but if u keep on doing it, u will feel better and get that fear out of u soon. For example, u feel less confident speaking to ppl, insteas of avoiding the situation, keep meeting people and talking anything. eventually u will feel confident. All the best!

Probably you are suffering from repetitive stress injury. In addition you may have low serum vitamin b12 & d 3 levels. Please get them tested. Will need to start muscle relaxants and anti inflammatory medications.
