I have full body pain, headache and back pain. Since last one week so please give me free advise to treat my body pain.
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. You can do hot water steaming for headache and for body pain you can take bath in hot water.

How to Treat Sciatica Without Surgery

MD, FIPP
Pain Management Specialist, Kolkata
How to Treat Sciatica Without Surgery

The term Sciatica is used to describe leg pain along sciatic nerve, with or without tingling, numbness or weakness that travels down from the low back. Sciatic nerve arises from each side of lower spine and passes deep in the buttock along the back of thigh and legs. The pain of Sciatica may be irregular/ infrequent or persistent causing severe agony to the patients. The pain of Sciatica may be confined to back of thigh & leg or may extend up to toes. The pain of Sciatica can be excruciating and "not relieved by painkillers". 

What causes Sciatica? 

Pain in Sciatica is due to irritation or pinching of nerve roots that form the sciatic nerve or pinching of Sciatic nerve after it is formed. This occurs most commonly due to prolapsed intervertebral disc (slip disc) causing nerve compression resulting in pain or it can be because of some similar conditions like Piriformis syndrome. 

Is surgery the only treatment for Sciatica? 

Most patients can be managed with medication, exercises or interventional procedures. So surgery is not the only way out. Patients who have severe pain can also benefit from "Epidural Steroid Injection" or " Ozone Nucleolysis". This treatment has proven to be effective in avoiding spine surgery in such patients. 

What is Epidural Steroid Injection? 

Epidural Steroid Injection is a procedure done by a Specialist (Interventional Pain) in an Operation Theatre using X-Ray (Image Intensifier) to locate at an exact level of injection. A drug mixture consisting of Steroid with Local Anaesthetic is injected at the epidural space of affected nerve root. The steroid washes away inflammatory mediators from the epidural space which decreases the pain. Steroid also decreases the inflammatory response of the body to the prolapsed disc. As a result, the pain arising from nerve inflammation is decreased. This is a day care procedure i.e. the patients are discharged the same day. 

What is Ozone Nucleolysis? 

This is a procedure similar to Epidural injection. Here Ozone-oxygen gas mixture is injected at prolapsed disc. Ozone shrinks the disc size and reduces inflammation of nerve. 

How is the possibility of surgery ruled out? 

Epidural Steroid Injection/Ozone Nucleolysis are proven, safe and an effective treatment that work on the concept of Interventional pain management - to provide relief from persistent and chronic pain of Sciatica. Generally, a single injection is sufficient to relieve patients of the pain. The procedure can be repeated for a maximum 3 times in a year, depending on the patient's response. With effective pain relief, surgery is negated.

It's not a wise idea to ask for medication for back pain as females at your age normally may have mechanical / degenerative / occupational causes for back pain. It's better to stop wasting time, consult a doctor or physiotherapist and get treated. Chronic back pains affect surrounding body parts like neck, shoulder, hip, knees along with your walking posture and may create problems there also.

Hi it can be fibromyalgia. Some test may be required like cervical xray, diabetes, calcium, vitamin d etc. But first it will be good if you visit orthopaedic or physiotherapist personally for clinical examination. Meanwhile take hot water bath twice a day and take healthy and balanced diet. Best wishes.

Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. 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. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Inform after 10 days.
