The best way stop using shampoos all are chemical based. So if possible you can use shikakai for your hair that will not spoil your hair and hands. If possible apply coconut oil mixed with turmeric and do a gentle massage for your hands.

Muscle Cramps - Why Do People Suffer From It?

Muscle Cramps - Why Do People Suffer From It?

Muscle cramps often occur in the calf muscle of the back of the lower leg. It is often characterized by a momentary sharp pain along with a muscle lump beneath the skin. Just like its sudden appearance, muscle cramp disappears the same way without any botheration. However, a doctor should be consulted if you see any of the following symptoms:

  1. The pain keeps coming back
  2. The cramps result in weakening of the muscles
  3. It causes frequent discomfort
  4. It results in changed skin color, redness or swelling of the skin
  5. The condition doesn’t improve with normal care
  6. Cramps are not associated with obvious causes such as playing, exercising and jogging

What causes muscle cramps?
Any strain on muscle, dehydration, muscle overuse or simply standing for a prolonged time can lead to muscle cramps. The exact cause of muscle cramps is not known in a lot of cases. There could be the following medical conditions that could lead to such muscle cramps:

  1. Blood supply: At times when the arteries narrow down resulting in an inadequate blood supply in the leg, a sharp pain can be felt followed by muscle cramps. This can happen while exercising or playing. It disappears as soon as one rests their legs.
  2. Mineral depletion: Shortage of magnesium, potassium and calcium in the body can lead to muscle cramps. Even medication for high blood pressure can lead to cramps in the legs.
  3. Nerve compression: Nerve compression of the spine can produce sharp pain on the leg muscles. The pain worsens with longer durations of walk. The symptoms, however, can be delayed a bit if the walking posture is changed, like the way one walks while carrying a shopping cart.

What are the risk factors associated to muscle cramps?

  1. Dehydration: Muscle cramps often happen among athletes when they get dehydrated and fatigued while performing in hot temperature.
  2. Age: People over the age of 60 often lose mass in the muscle. The remaining mass gets stressed out soon, resulting in muscle cramps.
  3. Pregnancy: Pregnant women face frequent muscle cramps due to the sudden increase of body weight and restricted movements in the pregnancy period.
  4. Medical conditions: Certain medical conditions such as nerve disorder, thyroid problems, liver failure, diabetes etc. greatly increase the chance of muscle cramps.

Some common ways to treat muscle cramps:

  1. A brisk walk followed by stretching relaxes the muscles and greatly helps in staying away from cramps.
  2. A diet consisting of magnesium on a regular basis gives relief from muscle cramps.
  3. A wet cloth soaked in hot water often shows magical results and gives instant relief from muscle cramps.
  4. Being hydrated throughout the day helps with muscle cramps. It is necessary to consume enough amount of electrolytes so that muscle contraction does not happen.

Tooth Pain - Causes and Treatments

Hello, everyone, I am Dr Vaibhav Garg. I’m a micro endodontic and oral care expert. Every day we come across patient’s that complain of tooth pain. The pain can be excruciating and can give you sleepless nights. Pain usually occurs due to decay or some sort of pathology in the tooth. As we can see here, tooth decay can be of different levels: minimum, medium or maximum. If we see in depth the maximum tooth decay that happens reaches the blood supply of the tooth. This is the actual cause of tooth pain. As we have seen that the decay is large, such teeth are usually treated with root canal therapy to save the tooth for function and aesthetics.

In a root canal therapy, the infected tissue is removed and the permanent material is fit in the canal and the tooth is secured with a crown. Modern root canal therapy is conducted with the latest equipment and safety measures to give the patient a perfect feeling and it will give the patient the best of treatment possible. If you are going through a pain tooth series, episodes of long-term sensitivity or something else anything that includes oral health care, please visit us through lybrate.

You can take consultations online and offline mode. You can always visit us personally. All the details are available on the lybrate website.

I have back pain from last two 3 days. I used pain relief spray and also applied ointment but it's not getting better. Should I go to doctor or is there any home remedy. Please suggest me.

Hi Mr. lybrate-user 1. Stay warm. One of the main qualities of vata dosha is that it's cold. That's why, whenever I used to wander around in the cold outdoors while growing up in Ohio, I used to notice that my pain would increase immediately, though I could not connect this cause of coldness and its effect of pain at that time. You know how we always want to be warmly tucked away in our bed whenever we feel ill? An important part of this picture of comfort is the warmth factor, which also applies to pain relief. 2. Reduce your intake of very pungent spices. Consuming extremely pungent spices in your food, such as red and green chilies and wasabi, can have a very drying effect on the body. Because dryness is another one of the main qualities of vata dosha, it gets increased with drying substances, and this can lead to constipation, as well as lower back pain due to stasis of the stools. 3. Eat warm foods. Because of the principle that like increases like, consuming cold food and drinks causes an increase in vata dosha, which leads to pain. Coldness creates constriction and congestion in the body, while the appropriate amount of heat provides expansion and allows the stool-carrying channels in the body (called srotas) to stay open so that we can optimally eliminate our food. And healthy elimination equals less pain. 4. Practice Padahastasana. Padahastasana (standing forward fold pose) is a great Yoga pose for lower back pain in particular because it allows vata dosha to flow optimally throughout the body, eliminating the constriction of the stool-carrying channels that causes both constipation and lower back pain. Whenever Ayurveda clients suffer from lower back pain that is not due to muscular reasons, we recommend this pose as a way to help with elimination. I have personally noticed that when I have had difficulty eliminating and then have done so, my lower back pain has left my body at the same time as the stools have. 5. Oil your body. My lower back pain has always intensified during stressful periods of my life. Ayurveda teaches how stress, exertion, depletion, and tiredness all increase vata dosha, and too much accumulated buildup of vata dosha leads to early aging, in addition to pain in various parts of the body, especially the lower back. Thanks regards.

I have a pain in my right knee and I feel like there is fluid. Feels like it moves up and down while I walk up and down stairs.

Dear, generally it happens in mid thirty and beyond ages. Some times it may be due to some trauma also. You can do vigorous knee pumping exercise by which that fluid may be reabsorbed or consult physiotherapist.

Hi you may consult a dietician for weight control and engage a physiotherapist for guided exercises. Bachche can be managed by an orthopedist doctor consultancy. Back muscle strengthening exercises are helpful best wishes.

Your back pain is for long time and simply taking painkillers will not help you. Your back pain needs to be evaluated in details and treated accordingly. You should consult a pain specialist in your city. Many causes of back pain can be easily cured by injections given at targeted areas of pain generator like sacroiliac joint or facet joint. A pain specialist is a doctor specialised in management of chronic pain conditions. Many patients of backpain avoid spine surgery by treatment with interventional pain specialist.

I am 21 yrs old running male . I have to ask a question for my father has knee pain he was suffering last 6 month.

Aching joints are among the most common health complaints, and they can happen for reasons too numerous to count. If you, suffer from the occasional twinge in the knee or feel your elbows demanding some tlc after hours of slogging at the desk, I have some advice that will bring you relief. I have tried each one of these, and felt better each time. The good news is, these remedies require very little effort, and yield great results. Feast on carrots: did you know that carrots have been used for centuries in chinese medicine as an effective remedy for aching joints? simply grate a carrot in a bowl, and squeeze some lemon juice on it. Enjoy raw or steamed. Carrot nurtures the ligaments, bringing relief from pain. Munch on soaked fenugreek seeds for joint pain relief. Munch on fenugreek seeds: my grandmother? s favorite remedy for joint ache. She would soak a teaspoon of fenugreek seeds in clean water overnight. In the morning, she would drain off the water and munch on the seeds. They taste slightly bitter to begin with, then slowly and pleasantly sweeten as you chew. According to ancient indian healers, fenugreek is? warm? in nature, which makes it helpful in healing your joints. Drink more water: among the lesser-known benefits of drinking more water is that it softens cartilage and keeps it hydrated. Water helps you maintain an adequate blood volume so that nutrients can move through your blood and into your joints. It also moves waste away from your joints, making them less likely to ache. Eat more onions: they are a famous anti-inflammatory food. They contain phytochemicals that improve your immune system. The sulfur compounds in onions inhibit the enzymes that trigger pain. A study establishes that fresh onions have an analgesic effect similar to that of morphine. Massage the joint: a gentle massage with warm oil eases inflammation, improves circulation and relaxes your muscles. As a result, your joints feel better, too. A tried-and-tested home remedy for knee pain in our household is to heat two tablespoons of mustard oil, along with a whole clove of garlic (which is also known for its inflammation-fighting properties). When the oil is still hot but not scalding, start massaging your aching knees with it. It brings immediate relief.
