If you have pain when going to bed it may be due to irritation of spinal nerves. Do a test for yourself: walk on toes by lifting your heals - then walk on heals by lifting your toes. When you get pain severe when walking either of this way there is a chance of spinal nerve getting irritated. Spinal nerve irritation may be due to continuous bike or car driving, wrong sitting posture during work, heavy weight lifting, etc. You need a consultation from a qualified physiotherapist.

I have backpain from last 2 days. What should I do?

Orthopedist,
I have backpain from last 2 days. What should I do?
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned a history of pain lower back since 2 days which could actually just be a muscle strain. If you have localized back pain with no other symptoms like radiating leg 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 back 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. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc 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 lower back and few blood tests for evaluation. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Goodevening I have understood your problem. You must first of all try and avoid sitting for long hours. A good posture will help a lot to increase your spine stability which in turn will improve your sitting posture. I would like you to correct it by sitting straight not bending fowrad too much. Do take a feww breaks inbetween while your at your study time. Do a couple of stretches for your shoulder and your back. Your very young and you need to take immediate care as you reach your late 20s you should not have further complications. `

Follow certain knee exercises to ease pain. 1. Keep a towel roll under your knee pressing it down and hold it for 10 secs. 2. Lie down facing head up and lift your leg without bending your knee and hold it for 10 secs. 3. Keep a towel roll in between your both knees and press it and hold for 10 secs. 4. Repeat the exercises 3-4 times in a day. Increase the duration of exercise each time. 5. Follow these steps and leave a feedback. Take care.

Stairs se utarte tym left knee mai boht pain hota hai or ankles mai bhi.
Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling. Take 3glasses of milk daily.

Hi, thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are very young to actually have persistent back pains.
