I am suffering with Disk degenarative problem.My age is 26.

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist,
The symptoms described by you do not point to a particular diagnosis. Backache is the commonest ailment. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days caldikind plus (mankind) 1 tab odx10days you will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take do ask for detailed treatment plan. Don? t ignore, lest it becomes starting point of a major problem.

Its not serious. Sometimes this happens due to pulled nerves. Do not bend forward. Avoid lifting weight. Avoid those activities which cause pain. If this happens again, then consult again.

I am having pain in my knee and back. Last year I had stone in my kidney. Is it has something to do with that? what should I do?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Well renal stone can lead to a severe pain from your lower flank region on one side going towards your groin region. So if you are having that kind of pain, please consult your urologist. But you should not be having any knee pain because the pain will not go till there. Anyways get your urologist opinion done and let me know, I can advise you from an orthopaedic point of view for your back pain and associated knee pain. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

IF you have a recurrent shoulder dislocation, then ask for shoulder rehabilitation therapy from a physiotherapist. With muscle strengthening the frequency of dislocation will reduce, it may even stop.

Likely a case of osteoarthritis and the permanent cure is total knee replacement. Else you must go through vigourous physical therapy and weight losing exercises. Try to contact a rheumatologist for replacement of knee joint fluid
