I am Having Hernia and consulted from my Local doctor, He Gave Me Some Medicine but Still the pain inside is Not Fixed it pains whenever I Use to Pull or push Heavy Loads. What should be Done.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
For relief from Hernia- * Take lots of High fiber diet such as green vegetables, fruits, corn, oats. Such diet soften the stools and avoids constipation. * Avoid coughing & if you are suffered with cough get its treatment as early as possible. As coughing increase the pain in Hernia & chances of emergency raise. * Do not sit on floor with legs bend because it raises the pressure in belly & it can increase your hernia. * During walk or working time wear the supporter as it support the abdomen & help the body to heal the hernia. * Drink a glass of milk with protien powder everyday so that the muscle gain the strength to get relief from hernia.

I have been diagnosed with lumbar sacralization of l5. There is deep pain in left sacro iliac joint radiating to legs and hip. Both sides are involved. Left side is worse. Have history of 13-16 hr sitting at job for 4 years. Back muscles are very weak. Unable to stand for 5 mins even. Pain in both legs due to weakness. Unbearable pain since 8-9 months. Please help!

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Sacralization of l5 vertebrae is x ray finding and can be seen in many people. Si joint pains are also different from lower back pain although both can happen in same patient. I will actually need: 1) a detailed neurological (motor, sensory, deep tendon reflexes) charting done by a trained physical therapist 2) your mri images and reports in an attachment this will help us in determining the cause of your weakness and maybe pain. Also please get esr, crp, serum vitamin d tests empty stomach and send all reports across to me. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

Throbbing Pain in Your Muscles - 7 Ways You Can Deal With it

Throbbing Pain in Your Muscles - 7 Ways You Can Deal With it

The musculoskeletal structure of your body is what enables you do any physical movement. The bones provide the solid structure while the muscles provide the strength and agility for all the necessary movements. However, muscles can be affected either due to internal problems within the body or due to wear and tear. Pain in the muscles can be quite debilitating and problematic.

Some of the more common methods to treat and deal with muscle pain are mentioned below.

  1. Correct electrolyte imbalances in your daily food intake: Electrolytes are important minerals required in your body such as potassium or magnesium. A lack of these minerals within the body will cause muscle pain including cramps and spasms. These could be caused due to:
  2. Proper stretching and massaging your muscles: You should get into a habit of properly warming up and cooling down before and after exercising as this will allow the muscles to get into optimal physical condition. If you suddenly start exercising, it may damage them and cause immediate pain or may develop into chronic pain over time. The best way to correct this imbalance is to include foods in your diet which contain these minerals, such as bananas for potassium, organic meat for potassium and magnesium, organic eggs, and legumes.
  3. Start exercising if you aren’t doing it regularly: Muscle pain may occur due to atrophy or weakening of the muscles. Bad habits and posture overtime will also result in muscle pain and the best way to strengthen them is to start exercising and stretching them slowly. Once they are strong enough, some of the muscle pain issues will go away on their own.
  4. Correcting bad posture: Bad posture is another culprit for muscle pain. Especially common with sedentary jobs behind a desk postures tend to deteriorate overtime and cause, muscle pain. Thus along with exercising, try to change your posture and correct any bad habit that may have crept in.
  5. Stay hydrated: Dehydration is another common cause for muscle pain especially from muscle spasms or cramps. Ensure that you are properly hydrated throughout the day to avoid pain from spasms.
  6. Use either hot or cold therapy: You can use ice packs or hot water packs to soothe muscle pain depending on the type of causes. For example, throbbing muscle pain and spasms can be relaxed through warm compress while inflammations can be soothed by icepacks.
  7. Medications: In certain disorders of the body such as fibromyalgia, you will need to take specialized medications in order to correct the problem. For excessive and chronic pain, you should visit your doctor as it may require more extensive treatment. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult a doctor and ask a free question.

You have yourself answered in your question. This common problem with people working indoor to have calcium and vitamin d deficiency. Remedy also lies within. Have good exposure to sun (taking care of your skin with sun screen etc. And having diet rich in vitamin d and calcium and other vitamins. Taking more of fruits / vegetables, eggs and mik will help you with activity like walking and exercising and body massage.
