I have pain on my joints for many days I am taking homeopathic medicine but not getting relief. Problem increases at night nd morning .Earlier this I had viral fever also but now I do not have fever.
Hi, I am 49 years old and weigh 65 kg. Want to lose weight, though I suffer from low back-pain. Please suggest some remedy.
I twisted and sprained my ankle 6 months ago. My ankle was swollen for about a week and then I started feeling pain in my lower back. 2 months later got an MRI done and was diagnosed with disc bulge in L4-L5-S1. My lower back does not hurt anymore (just a little bit occasionally). However about a month ago I started feeling pain in my lower leg (in the region above the ankle) and numbness and tingling in the heel. My chiropractor said lower leg pain is not from the pinched nerve it could from the sprained ankle. I don't have pain in my thigh or anywhere else in the leg except the high ankle region. The pain increases with walking or standing. Pain is in the outer leg. Even when I touch that region I feel tingling in the heel. Sometime only the leg hurts and sometimes just the back and sometimes both. Ankle specialist Orthopedic took xray but said nothing is wrong and recommended physical therapy. Could this be from the ankle sprain (tissue or ligament tear) or pinched nerve in low back?.
There is back pain, which is continually for 3 months. It taos the problem in walking or doing work properly.
I have an ACL reconstruction on my right knee last 4 months ago . I have some pain when I hold my total weight on right leg . And when I'm doing squats I hear some sounds inner side So please help me about this issue I'm really scared of this.
Pain is an unpleasant and distressing physical sensation caused by disease or injury, which induces hurt and anxiety in those suffering from it.
There are many different manifestations of pain, ranging from short term (acute pain) to long term (chronic pain). Other classifications include pain in the internal organs (visceral pain), injured tissue (inflammatory pain), nerves (neuropathic pain), etc.
The reason for the occurrence of pain depends on the cause and kind of pain being experienced. In most cases, pain acts as a warning sign that the body has been afflicted by a disorder of some sort, which may have arisen due to internal sickness or external wounding. Acute pains are generally cured on their own through rest or simple medication. Chronic pains, on the other hand, are more complicated in nature and the treatment requires more elaborate diagnosis.
The mechanism of pain:
Pain is an extremely personal and subjective experience and affects each individual to varying degrees. The pain signals, which can arise in any part of the body, travel through the spinal cord to the brain along thousands of specialized nerves and nerve fibres. In the brain, it is processed in the centres associated with anxiety, emotions, memory, appetite, etc. Signals and pain inputs are then returned from the brain to the spinal cord, which may heighten or diminish pain.
In some cases, pain may also be induced by damage to the brain and spinal cord, which happens after a stroke.
A constant barrage of pain signals may cause the cells at the end of nerve fibres to become over-sensitized. This is known as ‘wind-up’ and is one of the most common causes of chronic pain that occurs even though the root of the problem has been identified and treated.
The causes and effects of pain differ from case to case depending on the signals received by the brain and its interpretation. It affects the individual’s day to day activities and if persistent, can also have a harmful impact on mental health and psychosis. Pain is always handled, diagnosed and treated differently in all patients by drawing out the best possible solution to the problem.
