Hello. Get an X-ray of both the knees done. We can't reverse the established pathology back, but we can control the process in the stage it is so that it wouldn't grow further. Apply Bakson’s Rheum Aid oil gently (2-3 times a day) and take orally Bakson’s Rheum-Aid syrup/ 1 tablespoon thrice daily. Also, increase your dietary intake of calcium which is present in green leafy vegetables, milk, milk products, sea food, white legumes, dried fig, black-eyed peas, almonds, oranges, seasame seeds. And vitamin D which is essential for absorption of calcium in our body and is synthesized naturally after getting exposed to sunlight, so early morning sunlight for 10-15 min. 2-3 times a day is mandatory. Apart from this, do walk daily along with physiotherapy will also help you.

First of all you should take rest for 1-2 days so that your body can fight with underlying infection with its full immunity and start the below medication:- take gelesemium 200, twice daily. Take eupatrium perf 200, 5 drops thrice daily. Take antifebrinum 3x, 2 tabs, thrice daily. Take alfavena malt, 1 tsf, thrice daily. Drink lots of water and take light homemade food like dalia and khichdi, avoid oily, spicy, fried, junk and cold drinks. In case of high uncontrollable fever, don't panic you should do cold sponging to lower down the temperature. If fever does not goes then go for a set of blood tests. Revert me with feedback. Take care of your health. Good day.

I have been diagnosed with lumbar sacralization of l5. There is deep pain in left sacro iliac joint radiating to legs and hip. Both sides are involved. Left side is worse. Have history of 13-16 hr sitting at job for 4 years. Back muscles are very weak. Unable to stand for 5 mins even. Pain in both legs due to weakness. Unbearable pain since 8-9 months. Please help!

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Sacralization of l5 vertebrae is x ray finding and can be seen in many people. Si joint pains are also different from lower back pain although both can happen in same patient. I will actually need: 1) a detailed neurological (motor, sensory, deep tendon reflexes) charting done by a trained physical therapist 2) your mri images and reports in an attachment this will help us in determining the cause of your weakness and maybe pain. Also please get esr, crp, serum vitamin d tests empty stomach and send all reports across to me. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Hai may I know the tips to get rid of back pain and what are the symptoms of flu.
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket . And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back . you may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * Gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * Surya Namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * In diet vegetable protein of cereal , B complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief. These are Symptoms of flu : • Fever with shivering • bodyache • dry cough • lack of desire to eat • nausea • feeling of uneasiness or discomfort

Lybrate-user, are you on treatment for hypothyroidism? if not then start it immediately, with thyroxine. Dose will depend upon body weight, t4 & tsh levels. Once adequate dose is taken all symptoms will be in check. Plus you also have to avoid soy beans, soy containing products, cabbage, cauliflower, broccoli, radish, peanuts, mustard & coffee. Consume good deal of green vegetables, salads & fruits. Use whole grain flour for chapati & roti. Avoid bakery items and items made of maida. Exercise daily for at least 1 hour. If you have any doubts please come back. J.
