Weight loss will help you (at least 10-15 kg). Restrict salt intake. For vitamin d, include shiitake mushrooms, whole egg (provided you are not hypertensive/ hypercholesterolemic), oily fish (salmon/ tuna/ mackeral/ sardine/ cod), cod liver oil capsules-2 daily-1 with breakfast & 1 with lunch. Brisk walk daily for 30-40 mins in morning as sunlight is the best source of vitamin d.

I am 35 aged person and am suffering pain from shoulder to elbow, by some special movement of hand.Please do help

Dip. SICOT (Belgium), MNAMS, DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. This type of pain can be due to a nerve getting impinged somewhere usually in cervical spine region. But it can also be due to a shoulder pathology. My advice is: - star physiotherapy with tens as a modality - take an anti-inflammatory medication for 3-5 days - you can also use hot packs at home for an inflammed area normally the pain should improve in 10-14 days time, in case it is increasing then kindly let me know asap. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
