Follow right posture to sit. Take measures to avoid constipation. Take calcium supplements. Apply medicated oil over affected area followed by 15mins massage and then fomentation. Practice yoga exercises for back.

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.

No use of applying oinments that is never going to solve your problem. As you are a younger boy start doing streching exercises for your back and also for abdomen then followed by strengthening exs of back then abs. But see to that initially do not strain your back by doing beyond your pain limit. Never go in for any bouncing streches, try to stay at one particular exs position for about 20 counts initially later you can increase it.

I'm having lower back pain since last 2 months. My body type is slim and I have some fat on the tummy. The lower back pain subsides to 90% after bowel movements. I don't have constipation at all and drink avg 10 to 12 glass of luke warm water everyday. I have to go 4 to 5 times daily for bowel movements. My blood reports are all normal and uric acid is 6.5. So my doctor has advised me zyloric 100 mg 2 times daily. I have been taking it for last 10 days but no improvement. It is not due to less physical exercise or any heavy exercise. It's not muscular. I'm teetotaller and vegetarian. Please advise.

Hi, Limit sugary foods/sweetened foods Overindulging in these foods can lead to weight gain and obesity. Additionally, sugary foods, drinks and snacks often contain fructose or what might be labelled as high-fructose corn syrup/glucose-fructose syrup. A high intake of fructose can increase uric acid levels in the blood and may increase insulin resistance As well as biscuits, cakes, sweets, fruit juices and sugary drinks, high-fructose corn syrup can be found in unexpected foods. These include: Bread Yoghurts Frozen pizzas Cereals and cereal bars Jarred sauces Some condiments such as jams, ketchup, mayonnaise or salad dressings Plenty of fruits and vegetables,plenty bof starchy charbohydrate Some meat, fish, eggs, beans and pulses Eat these foods in moderation. Having vitamin C with meals can help to improve the absorption of iron, so drink a small glass of orange juice, have a piece of fruit for dessert, or serve up meals with plenty of vegetables Some milk and dairy products Including low-fat dairy products (such as skimmed milk, low-fat yoghurt, and low-fat cottage cheese) may help to prevent high levels of uric acid in the blood.

Give pressure the dipping point on the portion between the thumb and the index finger on the back of the palm. Press and release for 15 times where the pain is more. This will solve the problem. Further do some wrist rotation exercise. Report after 5 days.

You appear to have suffered from acute back spasm. You are likely to get it again in case you lift heavy weights suddenly. Avoid lifting weights. Perform good back strengthening exercises. Maintain good posture while sitting.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Actually there is no description as muscle pains, I think you have multiple joint pains as the main problem. I want to know your detailed clinical history, your relevant investigations, your treatment records till now. It helps me to better understand your condition and prescribe accordingly. Please also mention your co-morbid conditions and drug allergy. I will advise you to get some basic blood tests done empty stomach and get back to me with results: cbc, esr, crp, serum electrolytes and serum vitamin d levels. Meanwhile you can start with physical therapy and gentle anti inflammatory medication so that you can get adequate relief for it. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
