Hi I 'm 33 years old male from last 3-4 months initial had been facing issue related to muscular pain in legs + upper/middle back pain (spine)- also experienced pain when trying to move/raise leg specifically in morning, slowly and slowly with time, medicines (pain-killers for muscular pain etc.) and few back exercises, it went away- however few issues still remain and have increased as such over time :- 1.Whenever I go to washroom and sit down (without any support as such) continuously for 1-2 mins or more. , I start feeling pressure on the toes and extreme numbness/tingling sort of appears which lasts for 3-4 mins. After I get up from that position -as soon as I get up, I feel pain on little bit below the left side of the knee (of the right leg) and pressure on the middle chest-position (food pipe) - earlier ,when I used to get up from the position , the pain occurred on the middle back side but after few back exercises+ medicines ,it switched to almost the knee portion and it occurs on a daily basis. I had gone for all types of tests blood sugar, TSH,TLC, DLC,SGOT, SGPT,AEC, CBC,cholesterol etc. All fine but seems RBC count is increasing over the last 2 tests I had undergone in the last 8 weeks or so 1st test count was 5.7 million/cumm 2nd test it showing 6.0 million/cumm haemoglobin increased from 14.3 gm% to 15.1% (though within normal limits as per report) MCH and MCV slightly lower values than normal 2.I feel a lot of wrinkles appearing along with numbness on both my hands - 2-3 months before, when I used to keep the legs straight onto table or bed while sitting in the chair (table/bed at slightly higher position than the chair) and watching something/working with laptop etc. , numbness on legs and hands used to appear and last till I get up and walk around for 4-5 mins. Now for last 10-15 days, I used to suddenly have a lot of wrinkles/some type of numbness along with dryness on fingers of both the hands , palms become reddish at that moment with a large no of wrinkles appearing though I can work but still uncomfortable until they are gone after 10-15 mins or so . 3.Still pain appears on extreme lower back position specifically when I sit for 30-1 hr. In car/office etc. So is it all related to spine or is something related to blood cells which is causing all this trouble for last 3-4 months ? Could you please guide me on these issues and let me know the resolution for the same - any tests, specific type of exercises etc.

I have disc degeneration/disc bulgeing problem in cervical spine between c6/c7 from july 14. Now, I am having pain in neck continuously just like a pin penetrate in neck area. Its stops only bed rest for 8 hrs in night and early morning 2 to 4 hrs. Now I am taking medicine as suggested by doctor is moven meloxicam 15 mg 1 time in day and neurochem 1 in night. But as per my exp. My pain intensity get reduced when my head doesn't move much in day hrs. When I try to run slowly, pain intensity increased. Let me know when I will be normal. I have tried pshyotharpy too for 2 days only as my symptoms got worse after it. So immediately stopped. My symptoms history as below. 1. First 3 days just have a head stuck. 2. Then started litte bit pain in neck for 1 week (i assume may be this due to wrong posture during sleep) 3. After 2 week, sudden pointed pain, tingling was observed in my left arm. But occationally. I cant understand what is going on with my left hand. So I first contacted cardiologist to check my heart. But all test was normal. 4. Then I went to neurophysician and said all symptoms he has done ncv test and neck x ray but said all is well. So no prob at my end. Almost 2 month was completed and now my neck pain, tingling in left arm was increasing day to day. From my left hand, I was not able to hold my laptop bag more than 30 sec. It feel more than 100 kg for me I was going for swimming in that days too. 5. Then I went to orthopaedic doc. While just listing my all symptoms he said you must have issue in neck cervical disc. He immediately sent me to mri and my surprize, we really found now prob. There was my pinched nerve. Defination I found on net: when a patient has a symptomatic herniated disc, the disc itself is not painful, but rather the material that is leaking our of the inside of the disc is pinching or irritating a nearby nerve. This type of pathology produces pain called radicular pain (e. G, nerve root pain) leading to pain that may radiate to other parts of the body, such as from the low back down the leg or from the neck down the arm. Leg pain from a pinched nerve is usually described as sciatica. But it may be termed as disc degeneration / disc bulging. Whatever. 5. Now, I am just wearing a neck collar and have that two medicine. Symptoms are reduced 70%. Now no any left arm pain. But only neck pain. What is the best way to get out of this neck pain?

pain is complex, so there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. There is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders. Do reply back for medications. Being also a general physician, I prescribe both evidence based herbal as well as allopathic medicines complementing with dietary tips taking into account patient preferences.

Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there are no issues with the knee joint or back pain. Since you met with an accident probably you would've had blood loss and also you must be having mineral or calcium deficiency that is one reason to feel very rigid or stiff in that area. Hot water fermentation that would help to reduce the muscle strain. Keep ice in the area where you have pain/or where the muscle is injured. Eosinophila always leads to tiredness because you get constant sneezing and cold & cough. Better get treated for Eosinophilia. You can do steam for better results.

If you have a fracture, in the acute phase, it should be immobilized in a forearm-based splint or cast for 3-4 weeks. Gentle active range of motion (rom) of the uninvolved digits, should be encouraged. A physiotherapist can instruct you to perform these exercises on a daily basis at home.
