There is a pain in my right knee whenever the clouds appears on sky, only right knee, what is that problem?
It could be manifestation of peripheral neuropathy. It needs to be investigated. Investigations advised - hb, tlc, dlc, esr, sugar f & pp, uric acid, vit d3 urine r/e x ray of the affected part. Anyway you may try- 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. Do hot fomentation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, inform

Md ayurveda

Hello lybrate user - arthritis can be cure to better extent by adopting ayurveda - main thing here is to see the symptoms and advice medications - ask her to apply mahanarayana taila daialy before bath and before sleep where ever pain is there - give yogaraja guggulu 2-0-2 for 15 days - this s for the time to reduce the pain- better to consult in personal to follow the diet and lifestyle along with other medications. Thank you.

Warm mustard oil or sesame oil (1 teaspoon) with 3-4 cloves of crushed garlic and 1 tsp of ajwain (carom) seeds until it roasts to a reddish brown colour. Ensure that it does not get burned. Massage this oil on your affected areas. After that do hot fomentation with salt potli (bag).

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).

Hello lybrate user frequently gas problem is because of improper digestion. Disturbed sleep is the result of gastric issue. Causes for improper digestion skipping meals overeating eating when previous meal not digested sleeping immediately after eating having more spicy heavy fermented foods not drinking sufficient water excess coffee tea intake lack of excercise try to rule out the cause rx hingwastaka churna 1/2 tsp twice a day b/f sutashekara ras 2_0_2 with warm water b/f for 1 week.

Hi, at 25 years I guess you shouldn't be having these problems. Your weight may be responsible. To lose weight, you will need to follow a strict diet and exercise regime. You will have to avoid some small dietary pleasures to make your present & future better. This needs a detailed dietary plan. Moreover, for knee pain, as long as it is weight related, you need not do much except occasionally use simple pain killers. But it needs to be established whether this is not an early form of inflammatory arthritis. Eat foods rich in calcium to strengthen your bones. After a detailed history, I would be able to help you better. Regards.

I am 62 years male. Last few months I am suffering from grade I osteoarthritis on the both knees. Having medication with jointace c2 tablets/ rosiflex capsules and d-360 caps and cipcal tabs. Despite of above I am still suffering from pain. Advice me.

Sir, thanks for your query on lybrate. There is new way of thinking for treating age related diseases like osteoarthritis. It requires holistic approach. In my knee clinic I advise lifestyle modification, use of knee cap for walking, regular home exercises for knee muscles and low dose medication. It gives 80% symptomatic relief.

My mother is suffering from typical gout problem. She is 51 years old. Due to this problem she is unable to stand for a longer period. I want to know what kind of foods will help her reduce the pain?

Green tea can be taken once or twice a day . A general healthy approach is important . If she is overweight then she needs to reduce weight slowly and studily . Doing yoga regularly( with pranayam ) helps in regularising the metabolism . You can also try homeopathy which can address the gouty tendency and remove it .

Sir my father have problem in his knees so what is the solution of this.
For knee pain the best treatment course would be to undergo janu vasti at a panchakarma centre near u. After undergoing janu vasti, you shall be completely treated. If need the doc might prescribe you some ayurvedic medicines depending on your body type. Till then you can have drumstick soup daily. Also boil 2 pieces of garlic in 1 cup milk & 1 cup water. When 1 cup remains, strain & drink daily after adding 1 tsf cow ghee. If you want guidance on ayurvedic medicines

You may feel like resting, but moving is good for your back. Exercises for lower back pain can strengthen back, stomach, and leg muscles. They help support your spine, relieving back pain. Always ask your health care professional before doing any exercise for back pain. Depending on the cause and intensity of your pain, some exercises may not be recommended and can be harmful.
