Back pain at your age is generally due to muscle strain resulting from improper posture. This should not prevent you from pursuing your dreams. Follow these simple tips to relieve your backache. If problem persists consult again for investigation and management. 1. Sit with straight back and change posture in between. 2. Take breaks in between work and walk. 3. Do back strengthening and stretching exercises daily. 4. Take simple painkillers like paracetamol if pain is persistent. 5. Apply analgesic cream over back followed by warm fomentation. 6.Keep pillow behind your knees at bedtime. 7. Do not bend and lift weights. 8. If back pain is accompanied with radiating leg pain or tingling , numbness or weakness, consult your doctor immediately

I believe your words that nothing was found in scan. However better if you could get RA, ESR, uric acid blood test reports and send to me. It could be spondylosis, arthritis, Arthralgia of vertebral joints etc. Ayurveda explains it as 'Apaan Vayu' vitiation. However for the time being pl give him dashmool herb decoction, Panchakol herb decoction separately 20 ml each (warm) twice a day. Hot water bath after gentle massage by Mahavishgarbh oil and Mahavishgarbh oil mixed and heated a bit before applying. No bath for two hrs pl. Report after two weeks. For any clarification pl write back by consulting me.

Hello, I think you have neck problem, may be cervical spondylitis and that can give rise to pain in pectoral area felt as pain in breast. So you need proper evaluation and imaging and then it can be successfully treated with spinal manipulation.

Your feet might swell in the latter stages of your pregnancy. Try to elevate them and rest them on the foot stool to avoid any ankle swelling. Wear comfortable shoes with flat heels.

Parathyroid Hormone Treatment - How it is Beneficial for Osteoporosis?

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics, Ozone Therapy
Orthopedist, Ghaziabad
Parathyroid Hormone Treatment - How it is Beneficial for Osteoporosis?

What is Osteoporosis?
Osteoporosis is a medical condition wherein the bone becomes fragile and breaks easily even with a minor fall. The bones of spine, wrists and hips get affected the most. These fractured bones lead to severe pain and can force a person to become immobile. A spine fracture can even lead to a loss of height.

What is parathyroid hormone?
Parathyroid is a naturally occurring hormone that regulates the amount of calcium present in the body. They mitigate the risk of bone breakage in the body for a patient suffering with osteoporosis. These hormones are injected into the body on a daily basis to maintain the normal flow of calcium in the body.

How does the treatment work?
Treatments are available in the form of drugs and injections. A doctor can prescribe drugs, if the patient is at an increased rate of bone breakage. The parathyroid hormone helps to protect the bone from breaking, but have no role when the bone actually breaks. The body has a natural process of breaking a bone and rebuilding it by itself. Osteoporosis sets in motion when this process of bone formation is disturbed.

When does a doctor prescribe hormonal treatment?
If a patient has undergone a number of vertebral compression fractures and the condition has not improved, a doctor might suggest to undergo parathyroid hormone treatment. The treatment requires nursing support due to a patient’s delicate bone condition. A maximum dosage of 20 micro grams of parathyroid can be injected for a time duration not exceeding 2 years.

Things to know about the treatment:

  1. Be informed: It is good to be well informed about the course of the treatment, treatment duration, plausible problems etc. This will help a patient to be on top of the decision making process. The helpline of the 'National Osteoporosis Society' can be reached to understand the preparation required for a patient to undergo the treatment.
  2. Take the right dosage at the right time: Parathyroid injections should be injected on a daily basis for a maximum time period of 2 years. These injections are taken daily at the same time. It should be ensured that none of the injections are skipped without the prior approval of a doctor. The injection, which lasts for 28 days, needs to be stored in a refrigerator. In case a patient is travelling, special bags are available that has space for storing gel packs.
  3. Side effects: Most patients do not report any side effects, but they do exist. Possible side effects include dizziness, arthralgia, depression and headache. These symptoms often suggest that your body is reacting to the parathyroid hormone treatment. A doctor may or may not prescribe any further drugs to address these symptoms.

Dear lybrate-user, namaskar, this occurs due to disturbed blood circulation. An imbalance of blood (more) coming down to the part and blood (less) returning back from there. You must do contrast bath, two times a day. Take two buckets full of hot and cold (ice in it) water. Put both the feet (up to calves) first in hot for one minute (move the toes and ankles actively) and then in cold for one minute (move the parts actively). To be done for about 15-20 minutes. After few minutes when hot water becomes cold. Add boiling water to make it hot again and add ice to the other bucket (more the difference in temp. Better is the result). After it is done. Massage the affected side from the foot down. Above (proximal) to the calf with mustard (or any oil) for 5 minutes. Wipe them and apply elastic bandages support 4" x 2 from toes to the calf. The elastic support is to be worn whole day and should be taken out only at night. Keep two pillows under the leg at night. Keep on doing the exercises (seek advice of a physio. Avoid keeping the foot hanging. If unavoidable. Keep on moving the toes actively up and down while sitting. The problem should settle in 4-6 weeks. Always wear the elastic support from waking to sleeping time and never allow the swelling to occur even for few minutes. Because the fluid causing the swelling makes home in the tissues of the affected part (foot and ankle. We have to get that home obliterated and collapsed by observing the advised discipline. Else it finds it's way again and the swelling persists for longer time. Take care. You can revert back to me after 10-15 days with the result of the advised ordeal. To be done religiously. Take care.
