Sudenly my leg starts  paining  why?
If your whole leg is paining, then it may b linked to your back problem. If you have a history of back ache. Secondly, it can b due to improper blood circulation in your leg, which is bcos of muscle weakness. Right now take hot fermentation on your leg. If it improves fine. Otherwise consult a physiotherapist. Thank you.

Try this for joint pains try this. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. 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. Consult after 10 days.

She is having numbness in her hand along with pain at left-hand starting from shoulder?

She is having numbness in her hand along with pain at left-hand starting from shoulder?
Numerous conditions can cause pain, numbness and tingling in the left arm. It may indicate a myocardial infarction, or heart attack. However, other conditions may be more likely to cause left-sided arm pain and numbness. The most common cause is degenerative joint disease in the cervical spine (neck). Try few home remedies for relief: - improve your circulation by eating a healthy diet and exercising regularly. Massage your left arm before bed - improving your posture to reduce pinching on your nerves can avoid left arm pain. -rest your left arm and avoid any heavy physical activities. Your doctor may recommend pain relievers medicine to you. A cold compress can also help relieve the pain (note: if you have poor circulation, do not use cold compress). -rest and pain relievers can help treat tendinitis. Alternating hot and cold therapy is another effective way to relieve the pain. If you're first injured, applying an ice pack for the first 3 days or so can help reducing swelling by numbing pain and constricting blood vessels. After that, applying heat can increase blood flow, which may promote healing. - avoid strenuous or repetitive activities that cause pain. If conservative treatment does not help, consult your doctor/physiotherapist. In most cases, conditions causing these symptoms are not a medical emergency and respond well to conservative care methods. It is best to see a doctor/physiotherapist immediately if your pain is severe and of sudden onset. Best wishes.

Effects and Diagnosis of Herniated Disc

Ask Free Question
A Herniated disc also known as a slip disc or prolapsed disc and it refers to the problem where one of the discs located in between the bones of the vertebrae(backbone) gets damaged and stacks itself upon the nerves. The tender inner portion of the disc gets protruded over the outer ring. Herniated disc causes severe neck pain and back pain. It occurs when the outer ring gets weak and tears down. The most common symptoms include pain and numbness, especially on one side of the body. The pain extends down to the arms and legs. It worsens during nighttime. The muscles become weak. Overweight people are likely to have this disease, as the discs carry extra weight. Old people are vulnerable to a slip disc.

Effects of Herniated Disc:
- An untreated case of Herniated disc may cause permanent damage to the nerves.
- In certain cases, a Herniated disc is capable of cutting off nerve impulses to the "caudal equine"nerves, present in the lower back and legs. This leads to loss of bladder control or bowel control.
- Saddle anaesthesia is another long-term effect. Nerves are compressed by the slip disc, causing loss of sensation in the inner portions of your thighs, the back of your legs and surrounding the rectum region.
- Symptoms may improve or worsen.

Diagnosis of Herniated Disc:
Treatment or diagnosis of Herniated disc or slipped disc can be either conservative or surgical in nature. The nature of treatment is determined according to your discomfort level and the kind of pain you are experiencing, or how much the disc has slipped out.
- The pain caused by Herniated disc can be relieved by undertaking an exercise schedule, which includes stretching and strengthening the spine and its surrounding muscles.
- A physiotherapist should be appointed for recommending the types of exercises.
- Taking pain relievers also soothes the pain.
- Stronger medicines prescribed by doctors include-muscle relaxants, narcotics to deal with the pain, medicines for nerve pain such as "gabapentin" or "duloxetine".
- In case of the symptoms not subsiding within a span of six weeks, a surgery may be recommended by your doctor. The surgeon may have to remove the damaged part of the disc. This surgery is called a microdiscectomy.

Avoid lifting heavy weights. When bending down to lift something from below, bend your knees first and then lift the object. You can take homoeopathic medicines for the back pain.

Hi = relax and stay positive. = increase fluid intake. = eat seasonal fruits for natural vitamins = do streching of hamstring, quadriceps, and calf muscles. = if you are overweight, reduce weight by cycling or swimming as it gives low impact on joints. = do check your calcium and vit. D = apply moist heat pad to affected joint and muscles. If still you dont get relief consult physiotherapist as there are various causes for leg/ joint pain and some test may be required for further investigation. Best wishes.
