First you need to take a total rest for few days and apply hot water bag over the back region and after few days rest and relieve pain you can consult to physiotherapist for the exercises. Do the exercises regularly suggested by physiotherapist for at least 6 months (rehabilitation) to avoid reoccurrence of the same problem.

unless the pain is on the left side then it will not be related to your BP. only if its on the left side then the high BP can affect your heart and in turn cause pain on the left side. if you have any numbness or weakness in the upper limb then it could be due to neck (spine ).

You are probably having early arthritis of the knee. Use hot bag, pain relieving gels. Avoid activities like jumping or jogging. Glucosamine supplements help to keep you knee better. You can ask an orthopedic surgeon to prescribe it for you. Get the help of a good physiotherapist. You can send me a photo of your xray for review. A little care will help to keep your knees healthy for a long time.

Hello lybrate user, back pain that is associated with day time sedentary jobs like computer professional s are associated with paraspinal muscle spasms. The best way to tackle this sort of pain is to do well spaced stretching exercises of the back, back extension exercises, using hot water bags to provide relief and avoiding stooping posture while sitting. Posture also plays a very important part in back pain, always maintain a straight posture while sitting. While getting up from the bed try to first go on your left or right side of the body and get up side ways. Avoid cruntches or sit-ups: they may increase the pressure on your back and may predispose to slip disc. Always maintain a healthy lifestyle in terms of regular brisk walking, meditation, eating healthy. P. S: try to avoid pain killers (analgesics) as much as possible as many are associated with side effects that you may not be aware of. Stay healthy. Stay happy god bless you.

I have right shoulder pain, and not able to lift heavy object. What might be the problem.
We can't say anything about with out checking you. It must be because of overuse syndrome means if you are using same muscle for long time ya because of cervical problem ya because of artritis problems. In any case you should try to do strengthening exercises of your shoulder. Streching shoulder muscles in between you are working. You can use hot /ya cold pack morning evening. If you didn't get any relief go for an orthopaedic advise.

I have backache from last 24 days. I have been taking dolo from last 21 days but no relief. What should I do?
This is a general low back ache and for this you can follow these measures: one keep a pillow right under the knee while sleeping, next is you can keep ice in the painful area for about 5--10 minutes, if pain still persists you can stretch your body by twisting the waist on both sides how we used to do in the school drill similarly you can try which will help you relax as well will reduce the pain. Ice can be kept in the low back where you have back pain. It is suggestible to wear lumbo sacral belt which would help you to build the abdominal muscle tone which itself would make you feel better. You can also wear mcr chappals which would help you to have less weight falling in the painful back.
