After oophorectomy, there are many hormonal changes, menopause, hot flashes, vaginal dryness, difficulty sleeping, night sweats, changes in mood, hair loss, decreased metabolism, weight gain and dry skin. Thinking about your pain will always increase it after such surgeries, taking it lightly and having metal support is important. You cannot ignore if the pain is unbearable.

There are muscle relaxant oils in Ayurveda like Mahavishgarbh oil, which should be massaged by warming it and doing hot fomentation at pain site thereafter. However I would advise you to take oral vatnashak medicines for some time such as 'Ten roots and guggul based medicines. This is not pain killers but will address the problem in few weeks time generally. Pl also inform if there's any burning micturition or shooting pain on left side of back. Pl drink max warm water. If you agree to take further advise, pl furnish the info and consult.

Hello doctor I am a 28 year old man, I am suffering from ankle pain for last 3 years. The pain is mild at times and at time it gets unbearable when I have to walk or stand for long hours.

Actually you may not have gout or a bone fracture. But there are other causes of damage in the foot such as muscle injuries or tendon ruptures. I think you may need a mri scan to find out the condition of structures in yn and around your ankle. If you hae any further query please ask.

Hi Although there can be many causes for heel pain like spurs, fascial inflammation, infection, trauma etc but normally plantar fascitis is the most common cause especially if there is no history of any injury or any s/s of inflammation or infection like swelling, skin redness etc. This kind of pain is usually due to inflammation of your heel fascia. It is chronic pain which get aggravated especially when you walk more and is better with rest. Treatment modalities are aimed at relieving inflammation of the fascia, like ice packs, physical therapy, footwear modification and anti-inflammatory therapy.
