You have correctly been told to get urine examination done first. Urine complete & culture sensitivity. What is more important, please get your son treated with course of antibiotics first. He should drink lots of water. Give two times soda plain for alkalinisation of urine alongwith. No need to worry if it is infection. But in case he doesn't get well then must go for ultrasound abdomen to rule out any stones. Since I have not examined your son rarely it could be spine problem. But that is usually least possibility in younger age group. If you get your son treated in time you can avoid lot of problems for him.

How to Choose Your Medicines Wisely for Back Pain?

How to Choose Your Medicines Wisely for Back Pain?

THE DRUG MANAGEMENT OF BACK PAIN

Pain killers-or analgesics-are drugs that work by interfering with the pain transmission process.

Depending  on the cause and type of your back pain, some analgesics may be more appropriate than others. Paracetamol and aspirin-like drugs(non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs [NSAIDs] are often used to relieve pain caused by musculo skeletal conditions, whereas the opoid analgesics,codeine and morphine, are more suitable for treating moderate or severe pain that originates from damage to the internal organs of the body (e.g. the heart,lungs, liver, bladder, kidney and reproductive organs). 

The appropriateness of the various types of drugs also depends on whether your pain is acute or chronic. Although many of the drugs used are the same, they may be used at different doses or more or less frequently.Whilst your doctor can prescribe you a number of different types of pain killers, in many cases, drugs that can be purchased without a prescription are sufficient to relieve many kinds of back pain. You can buy these drugs yourself from your pharmacist, and if you pay for your prescription, this may be cheaper than acquiring the same drug from your doctor with a prescription. 

Your pharmacist will advise you which types of drugs are most appropriate for you. Always take medication as directed on the packaging and consult your doctor if the pain persists.Since some types of analgesic are stronger than others, you will usually start with one of the weaker drugs and if this fails to relieve your pain sufficiently, you may work your way up to a stronger drug. 

If the stages in pain relief are considered to be like the rungs of a ladder, then most people will have their pain relieved at the lowest rung. 

The higher up the pain relief ladder you go, the more likely you are to experience unpleasant drug-related side-effects.

Can I Take Pain Killers for Back Pain in Pregnancy and in Old Age?

CAN I TAKE PAIN KILLERS IN PREGNANCY ?

Being pregnant may affect which types of analgesic you can take safely without causing harmto your baby. Paracetamol is not known to be harmful in pregnant women and is usually preferred over other painkillers. In contrast,aspirin and ibuprofen are not recommended, especially in the later stages of pregnancy. Some clinical studies have been linked the use of these drugs with an increased chance of miscarriage. Your doctor will not usually prescribe opioids as pain relief whilst you are pregnant. If you already take prescribe do pioids and you are planning to get pregnant, you should seek medical advice before try to conceive. Your doctor will weigh up the risks to you and to your baby and may suggest alternative medications. This is because babies of women taking opioids have about a 50% chance of showing symptoms of drug with drawl after birth.         

CAN I TAKE PAIN KILLERS IN OLD AGE ?

Elderly people are more likely to experience vertebral fractures as a result of underlying, age-related bone disease such as osteoporosis. For this reason, they may require more pain relief than people of a younger age. The pain killers aspirin and other NSAIDs (e.g. ibuprofen) should be used with caution in the elderly. This is because elderly people are more susceptible to the side-effects of these drugs, like increased gastrointestinal bleeding and abdominal pain.

Before resorting to these drugs, it is advisable to try other means of pain relief if possible. These may include losing weight, using a walking stick and keeping warm, and in terms of drugs, using paracetamol instead of aspirin, or using a low dose of ibuprofen. Another option is combining paracetamol with a weak opioids analgesics. 

BACK SCHOOLS 

Back schools- classes taught by physiotherapists -teach people with chronic back pain how their backs work, what causes their pain and offer them advice about staying active. Educating people about how mechanical strain and bad posture can worsen their pain, and showing them the correct way to lift objects, to get in and out of bed or to stand properly, allows them to adapt their lives to reduce their pain and prevent future back problems. Whilst back schools may be effective in the short term, at the moment it is not clear whether their positive effect results extend beyond 12 months. 

Your PHYSIOTHERAPIST will be able to advise you of back schools in your local areas.

Torn Cartilage - Is Surgery Required For It?

Torn Cartilage - Is Surgery Required For It?

Torn or damage cartilage is not just a problem for the sportsmen. It can occur to anyone. It is generally caused due to a direct hit on the body parts. Its treatment is far more complicated than a simple bone injury. The best sign to know whether or not you have injured your cartilage is to check out your activities. If you have hurt your joint and don’t notice major symptoms, like if you are still capable of putting weight on and move the joint, you might have had a cartilage injury. It doesn’t hurt you a lot in the beginning, but might get worse later. 

Here are the initial care and self-treatment procedure: 

  1. Protection: It is the first thing that has to be kept in mind. You must protect the affected area from any further injury. Thus, providing an external support, for example, use a knee brace. 
  2. Rest: Provide complete rest to the affected joint. The rest is must during the first two or three days. Crutches may help the situation if you’ve got an injury around your knee or ankle. It is then advisable to return back to light activity over the next few days or weeks, as prescribed by the doctor. 
  3. Ice: It is best to apply an ice pack to the injured area for about 15 to 20 minutes in every two to three hours. This must be repeated in the first two to three days. 
  4. Compression: Use a bandage to provide the needed compression to the injured area to avoid any swelling and movement. This will not let things go beyond control. 
  5. Elevation: You must keep the injured area raised. Keep it supported on a pillow to reduce swelling. 

If there is an unbearable pain, take painkillers such as paracetamol or non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs). If your condition doesn’t improve after the initial therapy, you must consult a doctor immediately. 

  1. Physiotherapy: It can be helpful in treating the affected joint. If there is any difficulty in moving the affected joint, you must opt for physiotherapy. A professional will be able to teach you exercises that will strengthen your muscles and provide support to the joint. This will help you in getting rid of the pain. It can be also beneficial at a time when you are recovering from any surgical procedure. 
  2. Surgery: If physiotherapy doesn’t work, it means you have severe cartilage damage. In that case, you might be advised to take up surgical procedures to set things in proper shape. Surgery is done either by opening the joint or by Arthroscopy. There are various types of surgery which can be done. 1st the old and successful surgery wherein damaged part of the cartilage is debrided and filled with normal cartilage from the non-weight bearing part of the joint. 2nd is ACI (Autologous Chondrocyte Implantation) is a 2 stage procedure wherein chondrocyte is grown using stem cell and implanted in defect part in 2nd stage. 3rd is multiple drilling of the area usually done in childrens.

Study Suggests Paracetamol Can Alter Fertility of Female Offspring!

As per a study conducted by the Copenhagen University Hospital, it was revealed that consuming paracetamol during pregnancy can be detrimental for your baby, as it can weaken the development of the reproductive system of female offspring. The research was published in Endocrine Connections journal.

Although, paracetamol is an over-the-counter treatment for pain relief that is commonly taken by pregnant women worldwide. The study was conducted on three individual rodents and the results indicated that the rodents, who were given paracetamol during pregnancy at doses equivalent to those that of a pregnant woman may take for pain relief, produced female offspring with fewer eggs.

Further, Dr. Kristensen said, "Although this may not be a severe impairment to fertility, it is still of real concern since data from three different labs all independently found that paracetamol may disrupt female reproductive development in this way, which indicates further investigation is needed to establish how this affects human fertility."
