I get pain in my joints of arms and shoulders. Everytime when I do some work it pains me badly especially when I go somewhere by scooter, I can't handle it properly. I used most of the pain killer pastes and creams but still it's not recovering. I think that I don't have sufficient calcium in my body as my bones are weak which makes my body to pain when doing work. I don't know exactly what should I do.

Adequate Calcium Intake

MS, MBBS
Gynaecologist, Delhi
Adequate Calcium Intake

During the reproductive age, women need adequate calcium for strong bones. Since the baby takes however much calcium it requires for growth from the mother, calcium consumption should be increased to prevent the loss of calcium from the mother's bones. Women with poor general nutrition, low intake of calcium- rich foods and a positive family history of osteoporosis are more prone to get vertebral fractures from weakened bones during pregnancy. Milk and milk products, dark green leafy vegetables, sardines and other oily fish are done of the better sources of calcium.

Stiffness in back & other joints is quite a common condition. 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 mattress 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.

Dear you probably have a muscle problem. The hamstrings can give pain on getting up and down. Foot pain may be due to planter fasciitis or any other muscle of the foot. Apply ice and give rest to the muscle maybe yoga can help. If not relieved you need detailed evaluation and imaging to come to a diagnosis.

My both the knees pain . Feel weakness in knees. What care should I take ? This is since one month .Please tell.

BPTh/BPT, MPTh/MPT
Physiotherapist, Noida
Advice. 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. Core strengthening exercise- straight leg raised with toes turned outward, repeat 10 times, twice a day. Hams stretching- lie straight, take the leg up, pull the feet towards yourself, with a elastic tube or normal belt. Repeat 10 times, twice a day. Sports taping- stretch the tape from both ends and apply on the affected area contrast fomentation (hot and cold).

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Actually surgery for prolapsed disc is required when there are some neurological symptoms or there is significant back pain not relieved by normal conservative treatment. I will like to see a detailed neurological assessment, with x rays and if possible mri scans so that I ca advise accordingly. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.
