Hi. The basic reports are normal and there is no problem with it as such. Growing pains do cause pain anywhere in the body, so consume a healthy diet, avoid oily, fried, unhealthy, junk food totally. Take more of milk and milk products, fruits, vegetables, pulses, legumes, nuts, cereals. Drink plenty of water (10-12 glasses a day). Medication: take homoeopathic medicines - five phos and alfaalfa tonic - both thrice a day daily for one month.

Try few things for your back pain: - Apply Ice and Heat Heating pads and cold packs can comfort tender trunks. Most doctors recommend using ice for the first 48 hours after an injury -- particularly if there is swelling — and then switching to heat. You can use whichever you find comforting as long as your skin is protected. - Limit Bed Rest Studies show that people with short-term low-back pain who rest feel more pain and have a harder time with daily tasks than those who stay active. -Keep Exercising Activity is often the best medicine for back pain. Simple exercises like walking can be very helpful. But remember to move in moderation, Stay away from strenuous activities like gardening and avoid whatever motion caused the pain in the first place. -Maintain Good Posture Most people have poor posture when going about their daily activities, putting unnecessary strain on their backs. -Strengthen Your Core Most people with chronic back pain would benefit from stronger abdominal muscles. If the abdominals are weak, other areas must pick up the slack. When we strengthen the abdominals, it often reduces the strain on the lower back. - Improve Flexibility Too much tension and tightness can cause back pain. By increasing flexibility you need to put an equal load throughout the body from the feet all the way up to the head. -Sleep the Right Way The amount of rest you get is important, and so is the position you get it in. Sleeping in a bad position or on a mattress without support can cause back pain. Back sleepers should put pillows under their knees. Side sleepers should place pillows between their knees to keep their spine in a neutral position. Stomach sleeping causes the neck and head to twist and can put undue stress on the back. -Use Relaxation Techniques Research shows that practices such as meditation, deep breathing and yoga, which help put the mind at rest, can do wonders for the back. -See a Specialist Developing an individualized exercise plan is essential to managing chronic back pain. Some patients need more core strengthening while others benefit mainly from stretching and improving flexibility. Please consult a Orthopedic Physiotherapist for the right exercise plan. Best wishes.

If its diagnosed as arthritis, as you have only hands (palms) effected, due to age process, there would b chances for spreading gradually. Anyway you did not use any medications still, evn creams also you r saying, its good that in very late progress &i hope you can manage without medications to some extent. As home remedy, try to apply neem oil+castor oil or til oil together mixed n apply over jts. Effected daily 2-3 times. With gentle massage. Take 3-4litres /day is must. Consime lesss fat milk, curd, calcium rich cotents in food, do exercises particularly effecting the effected jts&for in general sake, walking etc.

Avoid sitting cross legged. Avoid squatting- quadriceps exercises- lie straight, make a towel role and put it under the knee, press the keen against the role, hold it for 20 secs. Repeat 20 times twice a day. This will help relieve some pain.

Avoid using pillows. Is your back/leg pain occurring after you walk or is it continuous? kindly elaborate on the condition. Do you have any associated weight loss, fever too? is the pain more in morning/evening? avoid heavy weight lifts and bending forwards, use hot/c\old fomentation 2-3 times a day and go for early morning walks. Hope this helps.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. In initial stages, physical therapy and supportive treatment is management of choice. You need to take following precautions: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping both for neck and back region. - take short breaks in between your work to relax your muscles. - if pain is more then you can take a short course of an anti-inflammatory medication which suits you - 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 if your pain is acute, then hot fomentation can be done at home - analgesic spray for local application can be used and is easily available. - avoid lifting heavyweight/ acute forward bending in mornings etc in case you are having back pain. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

You should do calf stretching exercises whenever you stand for long time. Try to avoid long standing as it predisposes for varicose veins.
