Extreme pain in heels. Earlier it was only on my left foot. But now its on both. Uric acid is not very high. Just 1 point more than the normal range. Early mornings the heel pain is terrible and unable to walk. Once in the morning I felt like a crack and heard a cracking noise in my left heel.

Hi pain could be because of bony spurs in the heel. Get x-ray done. And wear heel cushions in the shoes, take ultrasound therapy and contrast bath in physiotherapy. It helps along with foot ankle ex's.

Pain in back neck in every 5-6 days properly. Please tell me this cervical or else.

The most common causes of neck pain are: poor posture, muscle strain, arthritis, trauma from your symptoms I feel your pain is from poor posture or muscle strain. Try the following home treatment measures which will help speed your recovery. 1-heat or ice: use a heating pad on a low or medium setting for 15 to 20 minutes every 2 or 3 hours. Take a warm shower in place of one session with the heating pad. You can buy single-use heat wraps that last up to 8 hours. Try an ice pack for 10 to 15 minutes every 2 to 3 hours. 2-get moving, but carefully: movement helps your muscles stay strong. Avoid activities such as lifting and sports that make pain and stiffness worse. Do stretching and strengthening exercises to keep your neck flexible and strong and prevent stiffness.(please do private consult with a physiotherapist for specific exercises) avoid or change any activities that may be causing your neck pain, such as sitting for a long time at the computer or doing too much overhead work at a time. Gently massage or rub the area to relieve pain and encourage blood flow. Don't massage the injured area if it causes pain. 3-practice good health habits: try to reduce stress and tension at work and home. Practice relaxation exercises. Exercise regularly, including aerobic exercise such as walking. You should consult a gp immediately if the pain is accompanied by: -numbness -loss or strength in your arms or hands -shooting pain in the shoulder or down one arm. Best wishes.

I have a back pain some time mostly in night sleep so please can you sugest some tips.

Do regular yoga and exercise to strngthen your back muscles. Always maintain your posture. Sit erect. Do not sit for longer duuration at one place. Walking for 5 minutes, stretching a little every hour or two will help you a great deal. Avoid heavy weight lifting. You can also take calcium supplements for 3 months. Use ortho friendly mattress to sleep. Youe uncomfortable mattress may be causing pain to you so check that first.

Sir, I am suffering with neck pain from 3months. When I stretch my neck back it is paining. How can I control it?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist, Pune
Hello lybrate user, neck pain while doing extension of the neck can be associated with paraspinal muscle spasms around the neck. This can be effectively controlled by neck physiotherapy and hot water fomentation usage. A course of analgesics if the pain is too severe. Thank you.

Hi. This is the case of my cousin brother. His age is 30. He fell in love with a girl, one year elder than him approx. 3 years back, who was already in a relationship with another boy since past 6-7 years. She and her parents asked the boy to marry her several times. But the boy did not marry her giving some or other excuse. He kept taking advantage of the girl physically for his own needs, played with her innocence and feelings. At times when the girl opposed he used to show that he is very upset and hurt coz of her denial. This girl could not sent and used to allow him for sex even without her consent. This obviously was hurting her self respect. But after meeting my brother, they both found each other very compatible and started understanding each other well. Within some time, this girl became everything to my brother. She had almost same feelings for him. After meeting him, she realized her mistakes done in past and started focusing on her own self respect and her own aims in life. But after almost an year when my brother approached his parents for marrying this girl, they refused due to the background of the boy with whom the girl was in a serious relationship before. My brother had to get married to a girl of his parent's choice. But cd not forget the love for this girl. Unfortunately his wife ditched him within almost a month of his marriage and filed false cases against him of dowry harassment etc. My bro took a tough stand and started fighting against the false allegations against him. Since last two years he is fighting various litigations and preparing for any future false litigations. But during these two years, he is in regular touch with the girl with whom he was in love since almost three years. He used to share each and everything of his life with this girl. But cd not express his true feelings in that old way, coz somewhere or other in his heart he kept feeling guilty of not marrying her. 2ndly he is caught into various law suites. During this period this girl once again relied upon the guy with whom she was in the relation before. She made her mind to marry with that guy and now has married to him. My brother and the girl are in regular touch but as friends now. My brother still loves her, but not for any physical satisfaction. Lust was never a part of his feelings for her. He does have pure feelings for her and respect her as a woman. He cares for her. The girl also knows this and has respect for his feelings. Now when my brother has fought the legal cases strongly and is relaxed somewhat, he has started paying full attention to this girl like before. But she at various occasions have started ignoring and neglecting him. However, she keeps sharing almost every up and downs of her life with him. My brother does not have any intentions to break the girl's marriage nor he is expecting any physical favour. He just wants her presence and her time. Coz even today both understand each other well. My brother still can't remain without sharing things with her and almost the same is the case with her. please suggest whether to keep true feelings for her is wrong? What is the suggestion for the girl who still trust him like before but her behaviour somewhere is hurting my brother continuously? Is there any problem in sharing things with each other by these two coz of the trust and faith that they have on each other?

General Physician,
I have read your issue carefully and it is clear that unless both cannot come to a good understanding ther is no point in getting married and a premarital counselling will help solve the dilemma .If they cannot get together, they have to break up.

I am 29 years old I have backache most of the time for last 3 months what can I do?

Orthopedist, Delhi
Back pain could be due to bad posture or low vitamin d levels in a majority of cases so learn spinal extension exercises from a physiotherapist and do them upto 3 times a day 20 mins each. Get your vitamin d and uric acid levels done fasting and revert back with reports.

General Physician, Trivandrum
If you have persistent pain like you described you will have to take an ecg to rule out angina or myocardial infarction. If ecg is normal we can rest assured that it's other causes for the pain.

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) - 3 Ways You Can Get it Treated

Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) - 3 Ways You Can Get it Treated

The anterior cruciate ligament is one of the most delicate yet vital ligaments that holds the knee bones in place and stabilizes the movement. Injury to the ligament, on account of a sprain, can prove to be a cause of severe distress. This may lead to a partial or a complete destabilization of the knee joints and impair the normal movements to a great extent.

Some of the most common causes of this sort of a ligament tear are accidental injuries during a sporting activity, unexpected collision or incorrect body postures. This is a fairly common occurrence among the athletes. However, the physiological and neuromuscular controls make women more susceptible to damage to the Anterior Cruciate Ligament than men.

There are two cruciate ligaments in our body, i.e. the anterior and the posterior cruciate ligaments. They run in crosses to connect the insides of the knee joints. They regulate the back and forth movement of your knees. They therefore, may incur substantial damage through sudden movements like jerks or an abrupt change of direction; the degree of tear may vary from minor strains to complete detachment. Accordingly, treatments are available to cure the distress. The treatments may either be surgical or nonsurgical, depending about the extent of the injury as well as the age of the patient. A complete tear in the ligament necessitates surgery for recovery. However, one may choose to opt for other non - surgical methods to minimize the damage.

Some of the most effective treatments for a tear in the anterior cruciate ligament have been enlisted below:
1. Bracing: Wearing a brace or using a crutch for the purpose of movement can accord the knees with some stability. It also keeps the joints intact and alleviates pain.
2. Physiotherapy: Once the inflammation reduces, you may opt for physiotherapy to restore movement and reduce the pain. Heat and Ice therapies work as ideal adjuvants to physiotherapy in such cases.
3. Surgery: Regrowth of the anterior cruciate ligament may be possible through a surgical process of grafting. This enables the tissues to repair themselves. Knee caps and adequate rest accord better rehabilitation. The recovery is faster and steadier in this process. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

My mom is 45 years old. She s having backache all tym.. And she says she get problems in bones of hands too. What could be the problem. Pls anyone suggest.

Homeopath, Faridabad
Hello. Ask her to maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). At her age, low calcium in bones also leads to backache. Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Management: -Stretching or activities that place additional strain on the back are discouraged. -Sleeping with a pillow between the knees while lying on one side may increase comfort. -Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees would also relieves pain and no pillow under your head. -Some people seem to benefit from the use of ice or heat. Take care, do not use a heating pad on ‘high’ or place ice directly on the skin. Medication: Give her homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200 and Rhus Tox. 200 - both of them thrice daily for a month. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Apart from that give her calcium tablets also - Calcarea Phos. 6x/ thrice a day for 3-4months, then discontinue in between.
