Doctor, last 3 years or so I am not at all sleeping well. 2 years back when I was in my +2 I couldn't sleep well throughout the year because of various issues, so as a result I got a feel like my body is habituated for that way. Even now I feel that uneasiness that we get when we don't sleep properly. So what should I do now, I can't get a sleep during daytime. My body got habituated to sleep late nights like around 2 am and getting up around 6 or 7, and even if I try to sleep more than that, I'm not getting sleep which in turn causing headache through out the day. So what do you suggest me.

Drink 2-3 glass of water in the morning empty stomach, and 3-4 litres of water during the day daily. Walk for minimum 5 minutes. You may also mix two spoons of isabgol in a glass of warm milk and drink it just before you go to bed. It will help. Thank You

Prevention should have been tried. Now herbal decoctions, anti infectants'raktashodhak' and charamrognashak medicines are indicated in ayurveda. For the time being, till you decide to start full treatment, take turmeric in milk or warm water, wash face with neem water and little turmeric and calcined alum - shubhra bhasm - mixed to it. Do not squeeze or cause friction to lesions.

Hi, for permanent solution you need to know a root cause of problem. Back pain and hip pain both increasewen you sit for long time and when you lie down for sleep can be due to wrong posture to disc pathology or simple tight muscle. As information given is insufficient to dignose please see an orthopedician or physiotherapist or consult me online to rule out the cause of your pain. Till den you can have hot or cold pack to decrease a pain. Avoid sitting for long hours sply in frwd bending position. Sleep on firm not hard mattress. Avoid sudden twisting movement at your back specially when you are standing. Avoid high impact sports like football or cricket. Thanks and get well soon.

He should get an venous doppler to see for resolution of dvt. If it is resolved completely then he can gradually taper and stop it.

Stretching exercises before and after walking preferred posture is lying down. And back extension exercises when on stomach in lying down but do all exercises smoothly with 5 seconds hold. Add warm foamentation after exercises and relax if needed.

I have a 10 months old baby girl. Mine was a c-section and I am suffering from a very bad back pain since my delivery. So can you please suggest me wat to do to get rid of this back pain.

Hello, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. It has been seen in a lot of females that they start having pain after deliveries. Actually there is no physiological reason for it, but it is mainly contributed by weak back muscles, lack of physical activity, lack of exposure to sunlight which can lead to vitamin d deficiency besides other reasons. My advise for you initially would be: - 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 but if your lactating then it will be wise to ask your pediatrician before taking any medication - 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. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings, traveling on uneven surfaces for long time. Please let me know how you are feeling after 2-3 weeks of initial conservative management, then we will see what further investigations we require for you. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
