Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Actually pain at calf/leg region can be due to many reasons, commonly it is muscular in nature but it can also be due to tendons, nerves, blood vessels etc. My advise to you for initial 2-3 weeks will be: - ice packs application intensively with elevation of your limbs at night - take a short course of anti-inflammatory medication as per your body's suitability - stop your physical activity till pain completely subsides - intensive physical therapy, training and proper muscle conditioning once pain has subsided - slow resumption of physical activities with proper pre activity warm up and stretching of muscles and short increments in duration of physical activity each day as per pain tolerance. - we will get some blood tests for you - serum vitamin d and serum potassium levels, esr and crp once you have all these reports then you can contact me as I can advise you for proper supplementation do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation.

Hi Thanks for your query and Welcome to Lybrate. I am Dr Akshay from Fortis Hospital, New Delhi. There can be many causes of pain in the hand region, so it can be due to issues with the nerve, inflammatory pain, due to a lesion like ganglion, tendinitis etc. So if you can actually send me a pic highlighting the exact area of pain, i should be able to help you with an idea of management. Also can you tell me whether there is any history of associated injury to the hand region as well? Apart from pain, is there any associated swelling, or any other s/s of inflammation like skin redness, local warmth etc ? Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. You can also discuss your case and treatment plans with me in a greater detail in a private consultation. Thanks & Regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena Consultant Orthopaedics Fortis Hospital, New Delhi

Dear doctor, I am 36 year old professional and have been experincing some niggle in the left hip joint for the last 6-7 months, during standing the pain aggrevates, even sitting recently for long hours at work is getting uncomfortable. What should I do?

DNB, MBBS
Orthopedist, Delhi
Hello, this is Dr. Mathur from new delhi. Welcome to lybrate. If you are having discomfort in the hip for 6-7 months, I think an x ray of the pelvis with both hips ap view and left hip lateral view will be the first step to finding the cause of pain. Also get the following blood tests fasting- vitamin d and uric acid. Revert back with the investigations.

Give acupressure with a pencil on blunt edge between the mid portion of the ankle bone and the tendons on either side of the leg. Repeat on the other leg also. Please ask somebody to massage your spinal column from neck down upto sacral bone using both hands ie both thumbs on one side other fingers on other side do only from neck and not from sacral to the neck. Yo can also use a wodden roller purchased from a accupressure items shop. Report after 5 days.

MCh Ortho, ATLS (AIIMS), Diploma In Orthopaedics (D. Ortho), MBBS
Orthopedist,
If you were younger I would have said knee replacement. But at your age it' s not an option. So. Ask your nearby orthopedic surgeon to give steroid injection in your knee. This will help in reducing the pain. You should also start physiotherapy.

You are having both, cervical disc protrusion and vitamin D deficiency too. Your physical examination is necessary to decide upon next line of management. Higher level cervical involvement may cause a lot of sensory and motor problems if not addressed properly and timely.

General Physician,
Hello, thanks for question on lybrate, you dont mention the site as well ss duration of hernia in your question. Hernia is a surgical disease, it should be operated if your surgeon is ready for operation with due risk.
