Hello, you will not lose calcium from your body, it is highly regulated. Don't worry. What you need is vitamin d supplements since it is a common deficiency and can be easily corrected. It will help you to accumulate more calcium in your body.

I have back pain for last five days what should I do to get relief from this pain?

I have back pain for last five days what should I do to get relief from this pain?
Nowadays back pain is a very common complaint in young adults. It can be due to various reasons any injury, muscle strain eg-sudden twist while lifting object, bad posture, overuse of muscle or any internal disease like spondylitis, infection etc after looking at your pain from last 5 days I can recommend you following: precautions: 1. Avoid forward bending, if required then bend your knees first and then bend forward. 2. Avoid weight lifting. 3. Sit in chairs or car seats with proper back support. 4. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your back like sidelying. 5. Get enough vit d from sun as vit d keep bones strong including spine, 6. Drink plenty of water to enhance the intervertebral disks 7. Avoid standing in the one position for a long time. 8. Try to sleep in a position that helps you maintain the curve in your back. Physio care: I would recommend you for i-care treatment that is especially for back or neck pain. Rest required but it doesn't mean a complete bed rest. Do not over exert your body. Work take rest and then work so that you do not feel tired and started paining. Treatment- 1. Apply ice or heat which ever suits you directly to the area of low back pain will decrease swelling and inflammation, and ease your discomfort. Apply it for 10 to 15 minutes only. 2. Relaxing for 5 minutes after ice or heat treatment. Massage - ask someone to massage your painful area using fingers or thumb. Massage using kneading technique. Slightly press the thumb and start rotating as it helps to induce relaxation, relieve pain, and reduce levels of stress chemicals, such as cortisol and noradrenaline. It will give you pain relief for time being. 3. After massage again relax for 5 min and apply any pain relieving ointment eg - volini or oraflame gel etc. Make sure not to do massage with the gel, it should not penetrate the body. Just a topical application of gel should be done. 4. Again relax your body for 5 minutes and perform some normal back extension and hamstring stretching exercises to get relief from your pain. While performing exercises if pain occurs then would recommend you to stop doing exercise. Massage or slightly rub the painful area and consult your near by physio to diagnose the actual cause of the pain as he/she can guide you proper exercise plan which will be beneficial for you after checking grade of your back pain. If you did not understand or have any doubt regarding the i-care plan, please inform

Dear Lybrate User, Thanks for your query prostate enlargement is common disease amongst male with mature age and successfuly curable with Homeopathy without any side effects. Ankylosing spondylitis is a type of arthritis that affects the spine.  Ankylosing spondylitissymptoms include pain and stiffness from the neck down to the lower back.  Mainly the spine's bones (vertebrae) fuse together, resulting in a rigid spine. These changes may be mild or severe, and may lead to a stooped-over posture. Early diagnosis and treatment helps control pain and stiffness and may reduce or prevent significant deformity. It main symptoms are Pain and Stiffness, body fusion, Pain in ligaments and tendons, it is also can be cure by Homeopathy. For Homeopathic Treatment you need to give all your history: disease,personal and family history for better treatment For further information and details you can consult online. Take Care.

I am having knee pain from last 3 months. It started out in the left knee only. Now the left knee is okay and my right knee is having the pain. Have done the x-ray and blood test. No major problem seen in them. My doctor said that it might be the onset of arthritis. But I am only 24 years old and arthritis seems hard to believe. I am an active guy and play sports. I do work in corporate office so most of my time is sound in sitting. Does anyone have any opinion about why the pain is there. The pain started 3 months back after playing football. nothing showed up in x-ray mri or blood test. Have problem while sitting cross legged and pain while walking. Also I would like to ask, whether I can continue my gymming or gymming would severe the pain. Thanks in advance.

It is good to know that you are worried about your father's health. From the complaints you are telling, it seems like your father had a stroke. The head revolving sensation might be related to that event or some underlying medical problem. It is better to get your father evaluated by a Geriatrician (an Elderly Care Specialist Physician) for the head revolving sensation and not feeling hungry. Only after proper examination, it would be apt to take medicines as prescribed, if necessary. Regards. Take Care.

I met with an accident 1 year ago and fractured my right arm but after complete rest and proper care it still hurts me whenever lifting heavy weight. What should I do?

Normally you should be able to return to weightlifting about three to four months after your injury. Once your fracture heals, the joints are typically stiff and the surrounding muscles are weak because they haven't been used during immobilized time. You will need to increase your range of motion and strengthen your hand muscles before returning to weight lifting. Please consult a physiotherapist to find out what's causing you pain and the right pain management solution.
