Whenever I wash clothes and do some extra work. Severe pain on my hand occurs. I think it's on bones. What to do?

Whenever I wash clothes and do some extra work. Severe pain on my hand occurs. I think it's on bones. What to do?
Hand pain can be caused by anything from a trapped nerve to an underlying disease such as arthritis. If the pain persists even after resting your hand and taking painkillers, or if you have other symptoms and are uncertain of the cause, please consult a orthopedic or physiotherapist for detail assessment and management of your pain. In the meantime try few self care: use rest, ice, compression, and elevation (rice) for pain and swelling. Avoid sleeping on your hands, which may decrease blood flow to your fingers. Stop, change, or take a break from your activities.

Hi My mother aged 75 years. No sugar no bp. Reasonably healthy. But few days back her back bone compressed while travelling. Dr. Advises 3 week bed rest. And advises wear back support belt. But after 3 days now she is still suffering back pain even after taking prescribed tab like nervigen, ultracet, tolpa d, d360, altraday. My quest is should she use back supporting belt while sleep or in bed. Or is it necessary to use belt till back ache healed. How long it may take my mother to walk with in home? now she can't even sit. Can it be curable in home. Or else should I have to admit to hospital. Please answer immediately.

Hello . As you are telling I can get a fair idea that you mother is having vertebral compression fracture. If there is nothing neurologically, I mean no sensory loss or power or bladder and bowel dysfunction then you can continue with the same treatment. Vertebral fractures pain a lot and also take time to heal specially at this age. You need to wear back support for long time (exact duration can be commented only after looking at xray. Pls dont allow her to walk in home also till a month atleast. Feel free to ask any further queries or if you want to share and discuss records. Thanks.

Hi take rest, apply ice, you can visit orthopaedic doctor for proper diagnosis. Doctor may give you antiinflammation medication, and/or cortisone injection. Cortisone injection is extremely effective and is generally the optimal treatment.

The conservative management would be to keep ice in that inflamed area during one time in a day and also to sit in a hot water bowl where the penetration of the heat would help to reduce the inflammation. And to reduce the weight falling on the inflamed surface we suggest patients to use air cushion pillow (also called as doughnut pillow) where in the buttock's weight will not fall exactly on the painful pubic bone and that would automatically reduce the pain.

Dear renu, are only a part of the medication for rheumatoid arthritis (ra). There are many medicines which can control ra and are usually given in combination. It is very important to take these medicines regularly even if your pain has subsided. Steroids are given to reduce severe pain and swelling and are usually prescribed for a short duration. Some patients may need prolonged steroid therapy.

When leg pain occurs after strenuous physical activity, you can simply apply cold compresses. This will help reduce the pain by numbing the affected area and control swelling and inflammation. 1. Wrap a few ice cubes (or a bag of frozen peas) in a thin towel. 2. Apply this pack on the affected area for 10 to 15 minutes, while keeping the leg (s) elevated. 3. Do this a few times a day. Note: do not apply ice directly on the skin, as it may cause frostbite. 2. Massage massage promotes faster recovery from muscle damage that causes leg pain. 10 minutes of massage therapy attenuates inflammatory signaling after exercise-induced muscle damage. In addition, massage improves blood circulation and helps relieve stress and anxiety. 1. Rub some warm olive, coconut or mustard oil on the affected area. 2. Using gentle yet firm strokes, massage your legs for about 10 minutes. 3. Do this 2 or 3 times daily as needed. You can also use a self-massage device or apply pressure to sore muscles using a tennis ball. Also take mag phos 6x - twice daily 4 tablets. Do a x-ray of the affected area.

Hii. Most of the time this problem happens because of reduced flexibility of the neck and improper sleeping position. It can also happen if you use too much of computers or mobile in a wrong posture especially before going to bed. The muscles do not relax properly and next day they are in spasm. Try to reduce using of computers and mobiles before bed time, stretch those muscles, relax your neck and then go to bed. Using pillow will not be a problem. You have to use the right pillow thats all. Regarding pillows,
