My legs are paining at night so I am not able to sleep.
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.

Pain leg is common. Kindly rule out diabetes & vitamin d deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. Proper physiotherapy will help. Medicines will also be needed. Antioxidants like caldikind plus (from mankind) 1 tab /day helps. Paracetamol 250mg bd/tds will also give you relief kindly make sure that you are not allergic to any of the ingredients of the brands you are going to take.

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. She might be having leg pains because of varicose veins only for which a vascular surgeon is the best person to manage because it requires clinical examination and some tests before treatment can be initiated. I will advise you some blood tests which she should get them done empty stomach, cbc, esr, crp, serum electrolytes, serum vitamin d levels and thyroid profile. Once you have the results of these investigations, then you can send me the reports so that I can prescribe accordingly. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.

You should refrain from contact sports for a minimum of 4 - 6 months for the ligaments to heal. Prior to starting playing again you need to do a course of knee muscle strengthening exercises.

If there is a disc dislocation it will not heal in 2 weeks a proper treatment is required. Please do a x-ray of the lumbo-sacral region first. Take Mag phos 12x - twice daily and revert back after 7 days. Continue treatment.

I am facing problems during my mensuration days too much back pain wt could be the reason how can I'll over come of it.
During menses many females experience pain in abdomen / back for first 2-3days. Slowly this pain will go. Lower back pain during your period, or primary dysmenorrhea, is caused by contractions in the uterus. Every month your body builds up a thick uterine lining (called endometrium) in preparation for a fertilized egg. When estrogen and progesterone levels drop and cue your body to break down and detach the lining, and it does that by contracting. If your uterus contracts too strongly, it can press on nearby blood vessels, cutting off the supply of oxygen to the nearby muscles, which is the reason pain occurs in the abdomen and radiates to the lower back and even to the thighs. Have warm fluids during your menses and take mag phos 6x 4 tabs 4 hourly for abdonimal and back pain.

For knee pain, treatment depends upon diagnosis. If it's early osteoarthritis, then brace and exercises. If unicompartmental, depending upon pain, either exercises or surgery. Ukr or hto. For tricompartmental osteoarthritis, painful and minimum two tablets needed in a week then replacement is better.
