Before doing any kind of surgery on leg we have to stabilize your uncle and hence first priority is to treat the clot in brain with supportive treatment for leg

All back pain are not slip disc. Even severe spasm of (muscle strain) para spinal muscles (antigravity muscles) also won't allow you to put on body weight on the limbs. Malposition of any facet joint also leads to mechanical lock of that joint & restricts mobility severely. Of course slip disc may be one of the causes. But in acute stage & initially this is not right to draw a conclusion that is a case of slip disc as because it is difficult to perform clinical special tests at this stage due to severe pain. Mri scan only can confirm a slip disc. As of now rest (gravity eliminated position, i. E lying), icing, analgesic spray once in every 4hrly for upto at least 3-4 days is required. Kinesio taping adds on mobility & also helps in reducing pain intensity.

You seem to be suffering from episleritos or scleritis. It is usually an autoimmune disease sometimes associated wuth arthritis it has no permanent cure. Steroids as you are using are nonspecific treatment and can only cut down the inflammation. Non steroidal eye nasaid eye drops are preferable as steroids have side effects. Antimototic agents are used in severe cases. This is done by ophthalmologist in association with internist.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. You are young and persistent back pain should not occur in you at all. I advise all my patients with only back pain and no associated neurological symptoms or any other constitutional symptoms: - to maintain proper posture while working and sleeping - 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. Do let me know in 2-3 weeks time whether your pain is improving or not. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

I'm a medical student. Since the last two-three weeks or so I have a mild back ache in my lower back especially on flexion of the back. It all started as a minor ache on waking up one morning but relieved on its own in the initial few days but then since last two three weeks or so it does not go away even after a diclofenac spray over the area. Also since childhood I had a habit of sleeping with my back curled but since a few months i've been trying to sleep straight. Is it related to that.

Hi physical inactivity is one of greatest reason for bony pain this days. Remaining pathological changes like severe decrease in back bone spaces c/a intervertebral spaces, compression of nerve, fractures, tb, osteomylitis, physiological like kyposis or scoliosis like disease of back bones may gives you pain. Even wrong sleeping posture or more spongy bed can gives you pain. Muscular spasm over back can pains alot. I had explain in lyman language hope you understood please better you go for x ray. Do exercises. Apply ayurvedic oils like narayan tail do massage daily.

Hello. Maintain a right standing and sitting posture, keep your back always straight, avoid carrying weight on back. Hold or carry weight divided equally in both the hands or shoulders (to avoid over straining on one particular hand or shoulder). (Excessive sitting or standing is to be avoided as well don’t carry much weight on shoulders). Exercise: Practice Shavasana or Corpse Pose as it looks like a dead body. If practiced correctly and with full efforts, can relax every body part, relaxing not only the body but also the mind: Spread the legs one to two feet apart, the toes are turned outwards, the heels facing each other, a comfortable distance apart. Bring the arms a little away from the body, palms turned upward. Relax the neck and allow it to turn to the side if it is more comfortable. Close the eyes and focus the attention on the body, breathing normally. Begin focusing each body part and relaxing it, then moving on. Keep the mind focused on relaxation, the breath should be normal. Relax the whole body. Management: -Stretching or activities that place additional strain on the back are discouraged. -Sleeping with a pillow between the knees while lying on one side may increase comfort. -Lying on your back with a pillow under your knees would also relieves pain and no pillow under your head. -Some people seem to benefit from the use of ice or heat. Take care, do not use a heating pad on ‘high’ or place ice directly on the skin. Medication: Take homoeopathic medicines - Arnica 200, Rhus Tox. 200 and Five Phos. - take all of them thrice daily for 1 month. Also, apply Schwabe's Topi-Arnica and Topi MP Gel on the affected area in circular motions gently thrice a day. Get back to me thereafter.

Mix one part honey to two parts of lukewarm water and add a small level teaspoon of cinnamon powder. Make a paste and massage slowly onto the itching area of the body. It has been found that the pain can recede within a minute or two. Arthritic patients can also benefit from the daily intake morning and evening, of one cup of hot water with two spoons of honey and one small teaspoon of cinnamon powder mixed together. For further assistance and complete diet plan and treatment you can consult me privately.

It feels like you are having knee Osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis can occur at any time of life but the incidence increases with age. It usually affects people over 40 years of age. There is no cure for osteoarthritis but the progression of the disease can be slowed and pain and disability reduced. Treatment options include: Healthy body weight: Maintaining a healthy body weight will reduce stress on the arthritic joints. Nutritional supplements Supplements such as glucosamine have been reported to relieve the pain of osteoarthritis and halt, or even reverse. So please try to take this supplement once a day. Exercise Exercise can assist with the maintenance of muscle strength and the mobility of arthritic joints. Activity at a level that does not cause pain is not thought to worsen osteoarthritis. Non weight-bearing exercises such as swimming or aqua jogging in a heated pool may be beneficial. Range-of-motion and stretching exercises will help maintain the maximum possible movement in the joint. Stretching will help maintain or restore flexibility to the joint’s muscles and tendons. Cycling is a good exercise. You can apply cold or heat several times a day to reduce your knee pain. Just remember to cover the cold pack with a towel and keep your heating pad at a low setting to avoid burning your skin. Whether you use heat or cold, remove it after 20 to 30 minutes. If the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities you should avoid until knee pain and swelling resolve: Squatting Kneeling Twisting and pivoting. See a Physiotherapist for detail exercises programme and management. Best wishes.
