I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and I have developed Osteoporosis how long I should I have to take IDROFOS 150 EVERY MONTH.
My father has undergone c2-c7 decompressive laminectomy surgery on 2010, now again he is suffering with same problem of nerves tigthness & unable to walk. Now doctors again recomded for surgery, weahther it is adviceable for surgery any risk is invovled in surgery.
I feel pain in my left leg, which starts from left buttock and runs through left side of the leg. Pain increases when I drive or sit for a long time say 4-6 hours. If I'm walking then I don't feel any pain. I have consulted 6 different doctors, for the last 6 years, but no solution for this pain. Some say it's pciatic others say it's nerve blockage, MRI report shows two points of lower back bone as black, whereas normal portion shows all back bone as white.
I have pain in my leg for ten days and also in thigh for same days. What should I do or what medicine should I take for this.
I am 25 years old. I have pain in both leg and hand everyday with weakness at the noon time for last 1 year and the temperature of my body also increases with that (99.1 or 99.2).what should I do?
Torn cartilages are quite a common form of injury occurring in the human body. While one can’t always be too cautious of injuries, one can still try to be conscious of their muscles and do not move about in an abrupt manner to cause injury to themselves. Further, even though torn cartilages are very common, they are quite painful and most often they occur in the knee. Here are some tips to ensure that your torn cartilage heals well and you are exposed to less pain during the healing period:
Rest: You must take rest. While it is advised to take bed rest, humanly it is impossible to spend all day in bed. Thus one can move about a little but avoid walking and straining their legs and knee too much. At times crutches can be taken while taking a few steps in the room.
Ice Therapy: Putting ice bags in the affected area helps in relaxing the muscles and reducing the pain quite a lot. Though previously people adhered to putting hot water bags, the scenario is slowly changing to ice therapy.
Compress: When you are suffering from a torn cartilage, the doctor often puts a bandage on the knee to compress the area. This is done so that the muscles are brought together and they can heal on their own with time and rest.
Elevate the Knee: Often it is seen that during such cases, the knee or the hands are rested in an elevated platform. This platform is created with the help of a pillow mostly. This lets the cartilage get time to rest and heal on its own.
Avoid Strenuous Activities: This includes jumping, running, jogging, kicking etc, when it comes to the legs and writing, lifting weight etc. when it comes to the hands. These activities require a lot of strength and power and most of all the use of the cartilages. Since the cartilages are torn and in their healing mode, it is best to avoid such activities for a certain amount of time to not put pressure on the cartilages and damage them further.
Painkillers: It has been already mentioned that the healing period can be painful. Thus, the doctor may prescribe some painkillers to ease the pain during this time.
Thus, these are some of the easiest ways to deal with a torn cartilage. Some times surgery might be needed for torn ligaments, The recovery period may be painful, but it happens to many people and is completely healable in nature.
