Dear Mr. lybrate-user, the symptoms may reflect, UTI or Bladder Outlet Obstruction. I would strongly recommend alpha blockers to see the effect. A personal visit for examination is also required. Prostate enlargement can cause recurrent infections and this kind of pain.

If baby is breast fed only or getting some cow's milk or formula milk or calcium syrup. You should withhold everything except breast feed. Secondly if stools are not hard, then it's ok with once a week frequency for stools, if baby is breast fed only.

No need to worry. Give few drops of Erand Sneh (dabur) every night in milk or water to your child. In the morning give Balchaturbhadrika chooran in honey 1 gm powder in little honey twice a day. Also liquid Arvindasav 5 ml + equal water twice a day. Give for a week and send feedback. These are safe ayurvedic medicines for new borns.

It can have many different causes. Treatments for foot drop vary according to the cause. Most common causes and treatments for foot drop.

What causes foot drop?

  • Foot drop is a symptom of an underlying problem, rather than a disease itself. It can be temporary or permanent. Causes of foot drop include:
  • Nerve injury
  • Brain or spinal disorders
  • Muscle disorders

Here's some more detail on these causes:

Nerve injury. Most commonly, foot drop is caused by an injury to the peroneal nerve. The peroneal nerve is a branch of the sciatic nerve that wraps from the back of the knee to the front of the shin. Because it sits very close to the surface, it may be damaged easily.

  • Lightweight braces
  • Shoe inserts (orthotics)
  • Physical therapy
