Hello, Shin Pains have multiple causes other than vit d, you should rule them all out 1. Improper footwear while working out 2. Improper techniques of working out 3. Insufficient warm up 4. Weakness of certain muscle groups along with tightness of other muscle groups 5. Graded increase in workout levels You should try to correct these and should be better. Thanks.

About 2-3 weeks ago I fell face first on the ground due to inability to spot a uneven surface on the footpath. That day my right knee did pain for the night, the next day however it subsided. Since like last week the pain has increased, much more as it is like going and coming back. I feel like wrapping something around the knee, till my feet. I can't keep my leg in one position for long.

Hi lybrate-user your description here clearly indicates a knee joint injury. This needs to be taken care of properly otherwise the trouble will become permanent and it will hamper many activities in your life. I am advising you to take some medicine for quick relief. 1. Rhus tox. 1000/twice daily for one day only report me after taking this.

First of all you go for hot fomentation with a hot pillow at your home the pillow is easily available in medical stores. Please note you should lie straight with pillow beneath at the site of pain. It is necessary for you that you must lie on Bed, Couch, Sofa or any other place above at least 3 feet high from the ground level. In case of emergency kindly consult a Orthopedician at your place. You can also post message to my profile for any other query.

You should do a proper regime of medicaton and Exercises for 3 months. the kind of exercises depend on your x-ray and mri reports. Only of this fails completely then we think of other measures like injections to the spine, surgery etc. the basic principle of spine therapy is minimal intervention.

it is 8 weeks since i met with in a car accident. My ribs are fractured and there is minimal displacement of the sternum.Pain has reduced totally. However during coughing/sneezing I feel pain and slight heaviness. How long will it take to completely recover and what are the exercises to be done to improve .

You can do assisted coughing that relieves pain during cough. You can consult physiotherapist and do breathing exercises. At home you can do pranayama or light yoga also that improves flexibility. It may take 6 month to 1 year depends on how you do exercises.

Hi lybrate-user, here are some simple solutions for your leg pain: 1. Apply clove oil over the affected parts. 2. Ginger has wonderful painkilling properties. It must be included in the daily diet if muscular pains in the legs are a chronic problem. 3. Take the roots of Licorice and soak it in water overnight; Apply the following morning for getting relief in muscle aches. 4. Madhuca has positive effects on leg pains, especially if they are due to rheumatism. Its oil is applied locally over the affected regions. 5. Pepper helps in dilating the superficial blood vessels, thus helping in proper blood circulation. It also has analgesic properties and can be used as a liniment in muscular problems. 6. Do regular exercise and Yoga, you will get definitely benefit. 7. Put one part of camphor in twenty parts of mustard oil. Keep this in the sun till the time the camphor properly dissolves in the oil. Use this oil to massage the leg on a daily basis. 8. If you get a sudden sprain in the leg, then prepare a paste of turmeric with lime and salt and apply it on the affected part. Hope this helps. Good Luck.

This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. It looks like you are anaemic. If you have back pain after you sit for long hours then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain.

Hope you did not have injury due to accident or fall. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. In case it continues consult a acupuncture/acupressure dr. In your place. Also take calcium tablets for a limited period 2 months.
