Hi thanks for your query. I am dr akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Is your pain localized or one which is radiating down from neck region? think it can be due to some degeneration setting in your shoulders, I suggest you for intensive shoulder rehab in presence of physical therapist initially, a short course of anti-inflammatory medications and calcium/vitamin d supplementation. If it does not improve, then please let me know. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Now, tighten the muscle on the front of the thigh by pushing your knee down. You should feel your thigh muscles clench, hold for 3 secs. Repeat 10 times twice a day.

Pull your toes towards you and tighten/clench the muscle on the front of the thigh, locking your knee straight. Lift your foot up in the air, about 6 inches off the bed. Hold for 3 secs and slowly lower the leg. The knee must remain straight the whole time you are doing this exercise.

Pain in back or pain that starts from your back and side, and move towards the groin or testicles indicates kidney stone pain. Pain increases while you walk fast, climb stairs, running. Jumping or any such activity that strain. In addition to pain you may suffer from urine problem like frequent urge to urinate. Some times nausea, vomitting also. If you are suffering from such pain then yes it is kidney stone. Would request you to go for urine test and ultrasound to diagnose the size of stone and then according to that you can go for your treatment. If not then it is your postural back pain. You can take hot fermentation at home thrice a day for 10-15 minutes along with some back strengthening and hamstring stretching exercises to get it cure. Hope this answer your question. Get well soon. Best regards.

Here are some tips for how to handle your back pain while sleeping: -while sleeping, try lying in a curled-up, fetal position with a pillow between your legs. If you usually sleep on your back, place a pillow or rolled towel under your knees to relieve pressure. -find a mattress with back support. A good mattress should provide support for the natural curves and alignment of the spine. Medium-firm mattresses usually provide more back pain relief than firm mattresses. -do not perform activities that involve heavy lifting or twisting of your back -avoid bending forward and sitting in a place for long time -stretching and strengthening exercises are important. Consult a physiotherapist for detail assessment and management of your pain. Best wishes.

Dear , it is common to feel sound in your knee joint and it is obviously normal unless associated with pain and other conditions. It is called crepitus.
