Sir I have back pain from long time. So suggest what can I do ?

MS - Orthopaedics, MBBS
Orthopedist,
Backache is the commonest ailment. Donot worry, 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 you will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.

Being overweight may increase inflammation in the body that can lead to joint pain. One study found that overeating triggers the body’s immune response, which increases inflammation, and that losing weight can reduce this inflammatory response. Every pound of excess weight exerts about 4 pounds of extra pressure on the knees. For prevention you have to reduce your weight. For curable try the Acupuncture treatment.

My mother suffer from joint pain, her age is around, 45 Please suggest which doc should consult.

My mother suffer from joint pain, her age is around, 45
Please suggest which doc should consult.
Joint pain can be caused by a number of issues, such as osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis, gout, bursitis, tendinitis or a strain, sprain or other injury affecting the ligaments, bursae or tendons surrounding a joint. Severe joint pain, especially when caused by degenerative conditions like arthritis, needs proper diagnosis and treatment. You should consult orthopedic doctor or physiotherapist if her joint pain is accompanied by swelling, redness and tenderness, or lasts for more than three days. But, you can get rid of mild joint pain with the help of natural home remedies. Try hot and cold compresses alternating hot and cold compresses can also help ease joint pain. Heat therapy helps decrease pain, increase blood flow and relax sore muscles and joints. Cold therapy reduces inflammation and numbs the areas around the affected joint. Best wishes.

Hi i Am 66 year female with weak bones what should I take in diet mainly for improving weak bones.

Bachelor of Ayurveda, Medicine and Surgery (BAMS)
Ayurveda, Faridabad
Lybrate-user ji, this weakness is due to degenerative process in body as per age. You should start taking 1 spoon ghee in milk. Take 1/2 spoon of methi powder, and dates daily. You also require medicine to slow down this degenerative process. Consult with full detail of your self like - you have diabetes /hypertension/ or any other disease so that proper treatment can be given.

Hi lybrate user, all these symptons including excessive levels of cortisol, indicating cushing's syndrom. For this you can try allopathic medicines initially to get immediate improvement but that will not be a permanent solution. So, you can opt homeopathic medicines paralally, on long time intake of these medicines you can reduce the dosage of allopthic drugs n later permanently with observing improvement in your condition, symptoms n suffering wise, gradually can tapper the allopthic drugs. But in homeo, you need to continue medication for quite long time as its related to harmonal imbalance,&a kind of auto immune dissorder/metobolism.

I'm a 19 year old male and I usually suffer backpain and there is lot of pimple (daane). On legs and face. What should I do?

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You have mentioned backache as your mother's problem. You are actually very young to have persistent backache. If there is only localized backache with no other associated symptoms like radiating leg pain, numbness, paresthesias etc, and no systemic symptoms like fever, loss of appetite, loss of weight etc, my advice to her for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication like tab etoshine or even tab paracetamol which suits you - intensive physical therapy initially under supervision of a trained physiotherapist and then to continue at home - adequate calcium & vitamin d intake if levels are low in body - ice packs can applied 3-4 times in a day - analgesic spray for local application like dynapar qps spray can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc if there is no improvement in 2-3 weeks with this conservative management, we will need to evaluate her further in form of dynamic x rays to look for any instability as a cause for pain and some blood investigations to rule out any deficiencies etc. You will have to consult a dermatologist for your issues about skin lesions. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Sir I have pain in my shoulders and also in legs you can explain me or describe the solution pls.
Shoulder pain can be a result of injury or disease of the shoulder joint. Injury can affect any of the ligaments, bursae, or tendons surrounding the shoulder joint. Injury can also affect the ligaments, cartilage, menisci and bones of the joint. Some minor shoulder pain can be treated at home. Icing the shoulder for 15 to 20 minutes, three or four times a day for two to three days can help reduce pain. Use an ice bag or wrap ice in a towel (putting ice directly on your skin can cause frostbite). Rest the shoulder and avoid any movements that might cause pain. Simple shoulder exercises can help to stretch and strengthen muscles and rotator cuff tendons. A physiotherapist can show you how to do them properly. Most leg pain results from wear and tear, overuse, or injuries in joints or bones or in muscles, ligaments, tendons or other soft tissues. Leg pain can also be caused by blood clots, varicose veins or poor circulation. To relieve mild pain: stay off your leg as much as possible apply an ice pack or bag of frozen peas to the affected area for 15 to 20 minutes three times a day elevate your leg whenever you sit or lie down please go to a physiotherapist if: you have pain during or after walking you have swelling in both legs your pain gets worse your symptoms don't improve after a few days of home treatment you have painful varicose veins if you feel the pain is from muscle cramp then you need to drink a lot of water because poor fluid intake (dehydration) may predispose to cramps also low blood levels of either calcium or magnesium directly cause cramps. Best wishes.

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. Also press your palm with your finger tips in both hands. Consult after 10 days.

Explain to her that bones are weak at her age and if she were to fall she might develop a fracture. Also there are proven studies that walking aids reduce risk of fall significantly.
