For leg pain, please follow the below advise: keep your leg raised while sitting or lying quadriceps strengthening exercises- quad clenches: lie flat on your back or sit upright on a chair with leg kept horizontally on another surface. 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.

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.

5 Ways Stress Hurts Your Body, and What to Do About It

Where are you storing emotions in your body?

Have you noticed a painful knot in your neck muscles after a stressful week?
When you hear a song that reminds you of a difficult breakup, do your hands clench or shoulders automatically tighten? Have you taken a hip-opener yoga class and wondered why you were filled with strange emotions afterwards?
Our minds carry our emotional stress, but so do our bodies. The physical clues we experience could be telltale signs of emotional memories. 

Neuroscientists often report that the amygdala or limbic system in the brain stores human emotions and memory. But, the brain is not the only place where your emotions are stored. Your body holds onto your past, too.
Our body is our subconscious mind. Our physical body can be changed by the emotions we experience.?
Research reveals the integrated physiology behind emotion-body connection: 

?A feeling sparked in our mind-or body-will translate as a peptide being released somewhere.
[Organs, tissues, skin, muscle and endocrine glands], they all have peptide receptors on them and can access and store emotional information. This means the emotional memory is stored in many places in the body, not just or even primarily, in the brain. You can access emotional memory anywhere in the peptide/receptor network, in any number of ways. I think unexpressed emotions are literally lodged in the body. The real true emotions that need to be expressed are in the body, trying to move up and be expressed and thereby integrated, made whole, and healed.?

Modern scientific research is still trying to figure out the impact of emotions on the body.
How we experience emotions in the body. Participants were instructed to color where they actively experienced the emotion in their body,ranging from love to shame.
Anger and pride fire up the head, neck, and shoulders. Love and happiness fill nearly the entire body, especially the heart. Anxiety and fear activate the chest, an area where people with panic attacks often feel tightness. Depression deactivates most of the body, especially the limbs, consistent with the sensation of heavy limbs that many people with depression experience.

The bodily experience of emotions is nearly instantaneous.
We feel within the first few seconds of a negative emotion, people automatically tense the muscles in their jaw and around the eyes and mouth. Neurophysiologists explain that with repeated stress, people over time have shorter and shorter neck and shoulder muscles.
We can found that people with depression had chronically tight brow muscles (corrugator muscles) even when they did not think they were frowning. Multiple studies indicate that an increased mental workload results in increased muscle tension in the cervical and shoulder areas, particular in people working at computers.
Muscle tension can lead to chronic pain, knots, and spasms.We can notice that muscle tension decreases blood flow, leading to lower oxygen delivery, lactic acid buildup, and the accumulation of toxic metabolites. Shortening of the muscle fibers can also activate pain receptors. Lack of movement can further reduce blood flow and oxygenation. 
What can we do to prevent the storing of negative emotions in our tense muscles? Take a moment to see where you might be storing stress in your body. Every body is unique, and our bodies change day to day. Notice where you hold onto different emotions in your body, and kickstart the process of releasing these negative emotions with the first step-- giving your body attention and awareness. Here are some common areas of tension:

1. Jaw- Emotions like anger and stress can cause clenching of the jaw and muscles around the mouth.

What to do: Release the jaw by a simple Lion?s breath (link is external) (or if you?re in an open office, you try yawning or sighing with an open mouth)

2. Brow- Feeling down or worried can cause you to knit your brow without even realizing it.

What to do: Release your forehead by raising and lowering your eyebrows 2-3 times. Also, inhale deeply while closing and squinting your eyes tightly, and then exhale while you release the tension and open your eyes.

3. Neck- If you are constantly looking down at papers or at a computer, your neck may be angled in one position for an extended period of time without any movement, causing lower blood flow to your neck muscles. It shows that when mental workload increases, the cervical area feels the effects.

What to do: Bring back blood flow to your neck muscles by rolling your head gently from one side to the other, and then changing directions. Avoid holding your neck in one position for long periods of time.

4. Shoulders- The trapezoid muscle of your shoulders holds up your head, which weighs around 5 Kg.
If you have a sitting desk or computer job, you are likely not moving your shoulders regularly, which can create knots and muscle spasms in the trapezoids.
Increased mental workload directly results in physical tension in the arm and shoulders.

What to do: With an inhale, lift your shoulders to your ears. Exhale and draw your shoulders down and back, guiding the shoulder blades towards each other and downwards.

5. Hips- Most people don?t automatically associate hips with emotions. But hips as storing negative emotions (link is external) hips can lead to an unexpected release of emotions. While there is little possibility that can shed light on the relationship between negative emotions and hips, one study (link is external) has shown an interesting connection between the jaw and hips.
After tension of the temporomandibular joint was released, the range of motion of the hip significantly increased.

General Physician, Hyderabad
Hi lybrate-user, take calcium rich food like cheese, yogurt, milk, sardines, dark leafy greens like spinach, kale, turnips, and collard greens, fortified cereals such as total, raisin bran, corn flakes, fortified orange juice, soybeans, fortified soymilk, enriched breads, grains, and waffles & also take calcium supplements. I guess your orthopedician has prescribed the calcium supplements.

Dear lybrate-user, namaskar, I guess you have tennis elbow. Avoid sports activity if any. Else avoid any activity which causes you pain (for the next 15 days). Do hot fomentation and apply volitra gel, 2-3 times a day and support your elbow with a 3' crepe bandage in day hours. Take indocap sr and pentop, one each twice a day for 7- 10 days. I hope you will settle. If not. Revert to me. Take care.

Dear, I feel sympatetic to you. You are educated. You should know the real world of problems. Your doctors tell you that you have certain problems and they prescribe medicines. You cannot stop them at your wish. In my vies, your problem is hypochondriasis (extreme fear that you may have some big disease) and anxiety. You may need psychiatric treatment. I suggest you to post a private question to me with all the details. Let me analyze your problem and I shall suggest the suitable treatment method. Take care.
