Sir/Madam, I hv delivered baby girl in Aug. 2014 thru. Operation but after 2 mths of delivery now I'm facing severe joint pains e.G. In hand, elbow, knee, spinal cord etc. Now what should I do know & whom to consult. Please Help me>
I am resting now after acetabulum surgery. I can not move my leg to all positions. I feel like it's stuck. What can I do? Will it become normal?
I am 50 now and go for my daily morning walk. I do roughly 4-5 Kms of brisk walking on the road. Offlate I have observed that I get pain in my calf muscles and ankle. The shoe quality I have is good and meant for walking. What could be the reason/remedy? Pl suggest.
I have back pain from last 7 month. and some type of swelling .i had an x ray. But it was normal. My family doctor is not able to find the reason. Can you pls suggest what it could be.
From last few months, cracking/popping sound coming from knee while squatting, sometimes during walking/jogging. There has been no injury as such, no injury pain but knees feel exhausted most of the times and esp. After driving. Have done through few tests, have Vitamin D deficiency but calcium is fine. Checked with a physiotherapist, he said it's normal but still I'm not sure.

Have problem with my right shoulder and it happened while playing volleyball. Now it's been a year and still the pain is there.
My father is a 67 years old! He has lumbar spondylitis! He fell down on his back a few days ago and injured his back! He had disc prolapse in L1 and L2 vertebra 20 years ago! X-rays have been taken now! Its confirmed he has no fracture! But he is suffering from pain in the same region! The muscles around this region are cramping! He is being administered pain killers for pain management and other medicines but the pain is not subsiding! He is not able to get up and lie down! If standing erect he is able to walk! Also when lies down on the bed, lateral movements to either side are also quite painful! Also he is getting stomach ache and his stomach is bloating probably because of the pain killers! Is there any way to reduce the pain and also get cured of the stomach ache and bloating! He is urinating very frequently.

I am 58. Since one week I am having pain and possibly a bit of swelling near the top of both my thumbs, ankles. I am also having pain originating near my left hip and radiating downwards towards my little toe along my left leg. What could this be and what solution can you offer. I am otherwise healthy and my BP, hemoglobin etc. Are within normal limits. I am not diabetic and my BMI is 23. I do not suffer from any known chronic illness until now. I rarely take medication.
Bones are similar to a porous framework which is filled with minerals that make it hard and strong. With age, there is gradual degradation and the mineralized portion is lost, thereby leading to thinning of the bone. The word osteoporosis literally translates to porous bones, which is due to the gradual demineralisation. In addition to the natural ageing process, there are other diseases that can accelerate the demineralization process.
Women are more prone to demineralisation, and after the age of 40, they should take extra precaution to slow down the onset of the condition. The following are some ways to improve bone health and halt osteoporosis in the long run-
Diet: Ensure that your diet has sufficient amounts of vitamin D and calcium. Though calcium is the essential mineral for bone formation, vitamin D is required for the absorption of calcium, and therefore both these elements play a vital role in maintaining the quality of the bones in our body. Most people require about 1,000 mg of calcium and about 500 units of vitamin D for optimal bone health. This requirement goes up slightly in postmenopausal women.
Sun Exposure: In most people, exposure to the sun allows the body to make vitamin D, but careful sun protection prevents this from happening. Also, with age, the body’s ability to form intrinsic vitamin D also declines. The body, therefore, relies on supplements. Most dairy products are good sources of calcium. In addition, spinach, salmon, turnips, and broccoli are some calcium-rich foods. Supplements of calcium carbonate or calcium citrate can be taken if your diet is lacking in calcium. Vitamin D also should be included in the supplementation. The treatment for osteoporosis is incomplete without these two supplements.
Exercise With Weights: The constructive tension that exercise puts on the body helps in bone building, whatever the age may be, which prevents the onset of osteoporosis. Any exercise which improves muscle mass strengthens the bones, and puts stress on the bones is advisable. Since the fractured area due to osteoporosis mainly includes the spine, lower back exercises, yoga, tai chi, and abdominal exercises all work wonders. Pick any of these and do them for 30 minutes three times a week.
Quit Smoking: Continuing to smoke while taking osteoporosis medications is completely useless. Nicotine negates all the effects which defeat the purpose of taking the medication and is as good as taking no medication at all. So if you want the bone thinning to stop, stop smoking.
Alcohol Consumption: While a drink or two per week is permissible, more than this can harm the bones significantly.
Constant Health Watch: Talk to a doctor about how other routine medications (if any) can affect your bone health. Also, identify how frequently you should check your bone mineral density and stick to the schedule.
Bone health and osteoporosis can be managed with some conscious efforts.
