I am 28 m and suffering from a continuous head heaviness and crippling fatigue from last 20 years. My symptoms are: head pulsation (felt as head heaviness, coldness (menthol like feeling) and tingling throughout the body accompanied by fatigue and pain. .The symptoms are worse in morning and wax and wane all the time with my feet also having a bad cold burning sensation intermittently. On top of the symptoms mentioned above, there is a mild overlapped/superimposed discomfort (running through the left side of head) getting me a feel to crack my neck head joint on the left side. Occasionally, this discomfort worsens into a full blown nauseatic painful unilateral headache (left side) with a very sharp pain felt at the head neck joint on the left side and also through the head on the left side itself. Not only this, the pain, during these episodes also spreads into the whole left side of the body (into shoulder, arm, back, leg and foot) and I kind of get a feeling to crack all the joints on the left side of my body, specially the neck head joint as it kind of mitigates and releases the pain. Furthermore, on some very rare occasions, while travelling in the car, there have been episodes where my nausea and tingling have become so bad that my hands have gotten clenched tightly (without any unconsciousness. However, they become better within 5 10 minutes after getting out of the car and taking fresh air. I have mild scoliosis ,restricted ROM of neck, bertolotti syndrome, vitamin b12 deficiency (234), c6-c7 nerve compression. The symptoms seem to suggest a cervicogenic headache but doctors don't agree because the symptoms are systemic well. Infact ,to some extent, I too agree with them as I have observed that it is the mint cold feeling in the extremities that precedes and starts off all the symptoms. Please help.
I am 25 years old and I'm married. I have knee pain when I fold my leg even I can't pray by kneel down.
Of all the joints in the body, the knees probably see the maximum wear and tear. In cases of severe osteoarthritis, or injuries which destroy the knee joint, a total knee replacement surgery may be advised. This procedure involves the replacement of diseased cartilage and bone in the knees with artificial materials.
In cases of osteoarthritis and other such degenerative conditions, this procedure is performed only when the adjacent joints such as the hips are strong and healthy. Before the procedure, you may be advised to discontinue any blood thinning and anti-inflammatory medication. Your doctor will also conduct blood and urine tests to check for signs of anaemia, abnormal metabolism and infections. You may also be asked to lose weight if you are on the heavier side to reduce the pressure on your knees.
A total knee replacement surgery is usually performed under general anaesthesia. The lower end of the femur bone or thigh bone and the upper end of the tibia or calf bone are removed and replaced with a metal shell and plastic piece respectively. In some cases, a plastic ‘button’ may also be placed on the surface of the knee cap. If the posterior cruciate ligament in intact it is left as is or it is replaced by a polyethene post to stabilise the joint and prevent the calf from slipping backwards.
In most cases, a patient is discharged after 3-5 days of hospitalisation following the surgery. Post-surgery, it takes about a month for the patient to experience notable improvements. For optimal results, total knee surgery must be followed by physiotherapy and regular exercise. This helps prevent scarring and keeps the muscles strong enough to maintain joint stability. Exercising can also reduce recovery time. However, not all exercises are advisable. Avoid running, jumping, climbing stairs and contact sports which have a high risk of knee injury. Swimming is highly encouraged as it boosts endurance and muscle strength without putting any pressure on the joint.
In some cases, a second surgery may be required in cases of total knee replacement to fix fractures, loosening or complications of the artificial joint. As with any other surgical procedure, a total knee replacement surgery also has risks. Some of these are:
- Formation of blood clots that can cause shortness of breath, chest pain and shock
- Urinary tract infection
- Nausea and vomiting
- Knee pain and stiffness
- Nerve damage
- Internal bleeding in the knee
- Increased risk of infections
