Your feet might swell in the latter stages of your pregnancy. Try to elevate them and rest them on the foot stool to avoid any ankle swelling. Wear comfortable shoes with flat heels.

I am 22 years old male and I have 3 month later to shoulders pain. Is very high please serjust a solution.
Shoulder pain may be due to strain, sprain, weather change etc. *Don’t sit continuously working on laptop etc. Get up periodically and move around. *Restrict bike driving as far as possible. *Don’t carry laptop or any load on your shoulder. Carrying very light loads equally with both hands is better *Sit straight so that back bone gets proper support. A dining chair is better than a laid back sofa. *You can use mustard oil for massage which is good in winter season for relieving pain. Eucalyptus oil is also good *Soft bed will not give proper support to your back bone. Hard bed with thin mattress and thin pillow is better. *Get yourself tested whether you have spondylitis problem. Homoeopathy has a good treatment for this without adverse effects. Take Calc fluor 200--once daily in the morning for 6 days.

Gentle massage over knees with lukewarm herbal pain relieving oils daily for about 15-20 minutes and hot fomentation afterwards will greatly help in subsiding the pain. These procedures would give strength to your knee and reduce the pain and stiffness. Regular oiling the joint will improve the lubrication also. Use knee caps over the joints and avoid over exertion of the joint. This will greatly help. Although some herbal medicines might also help you but after proper history taking.

Head holding is not attained by an infant by three months. You should be careful next time while holding the child as the child has no head control and the head tends to fall backwards. I don't think the present occurrence would lead to any future complications but be careful from next time.

For knee pain the best treatment course would be to undergo janu vasti at a panchakarma centre near u. After undergoing janu vasti, you shall be completely treated. If need the doc might prescribe you some ayurvedic medicines depending on your body type. Till then you can have drumstick soup daily. Also boil 2 pieces of garlic in 1 cup milk & 1 cup water. When 1 cup remains, strain & drink daily after adding 1 tsf cow ghee.

Hello Lybrate user, Non working of fingers could be because of multiple reasons. It could be a neurological problem (like a nerve compression near the wrist). Could be due to arthritis or even plain cold weather. What I suggest is see your orthopaedic and he will examine you and may be prescribe you some blood tests and may be neurological tests to make a proper diagnosis. E In the meantime keep your fingers warm. You can also consider wearing woollen gloves and see if it makes. You feel better. You can give hot fomentation to your fingers, apply some over the counter painkiller sprays and see how that helps you. Do get back if you have more queries.

He is 80 years old. He is suffering from pain in his left knee. Is there any natural remedy for it?

He is 80 years old. He is suffering from pain in his left knee. Is there any natural remedy for it?
He is most probably suffering from oa of knee. Knee surgery-total knee replacement (tkr) is quite safe & gives uniformly good results, in our hands.Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Surgery should be done when patient is still active & will be able to take benefit of surgery. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem. Kindly show me x rays before a final decision can be taken. You will be thoroughly investigated before surgery is under taken. Risk in surgery is less than the risk in crossing road.

I suggest you follow the below for your condition: Take Mag Phos 12x - thrice daily for next 2 weeks and update. Also do x-ray of the affected area. Heat and Ice Packs. Heat and/or cold therapy helps relieve most types of low back pain by reducing inflammation. Often patients use ice, but some prefer heat. Both may be used alternately. If you would like to consult with me privately, please click on 'Consult'. Recommend me by clicking on recommendation option.

Hello lybrate-user after your ligament surgery you did regular Physio? Coz muscle strengthening exs are very important. And you need to do progressive strengthening training dat helps you to reduce pain. Nw at dis moment if pain is bearable you can start wit static exs n dan d dynamic strengthening. Best way to visit a Physio. Till dat time you can do knee pressing exs wit towel roll beneath. Knee bending in lying down position. N in sitting position straighten your knee.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned pain in legs and back increasing at night. Can you tell me whether there is any weakness in legs, numbness or any other associated neurological symptoms etc? you can start with physical therapy, calcium and vitamin d supplementation, gentle anti inflammatory medication like etoshine for 5-7 days, daily brisk walks for 2-3 km in mornings. We will again see after 2 weeks whether you are improving or not otherwise we will get some blood tests and x rays of the involved region. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
