First Loose ur weight....do yoga or aerobics daily or walk daily whatever u feel comfortable. Go for fasting once a week. You can go for absolute fasting or rely on a liquid diet to digest ama (toxin). Fasting should be followed by hot fomentation or by taking a bath with lukewarm water or steam bath. After fasting and fomentation, mix powdered long pepper, black pepper and dried ginger in equal quantities and take 1 teaspoon of this powdered mix with lukewarm water twice a day. This will help you restore your digestive fire. Take one tablespoon of castor oil before going to bed, once or twice a week. It helps in cleansing ama (toxin) build up and balancing vata. Mix equal quantities of powdered fenugreek seeds, turmeric and ginger powder. Take one teaspoon daily in the morning and evening. For dry fomentation of the affected joints, take a cloth and fold it into four, fill it with hot and sand make a potli (bag) out of it. Use this bundle for the fomentation of different joints. This is very helpful in reducing pain and swelling.

Hi, i'm 52 years old, female and having tendinosis with 50 % tear on my shoulder. Doctor advises me to go for surgery. I'm a diabetic hence I need suggestion whether surgery is only cure.

Tears more than 50% are better treated with arthroscopic repair. Diabetes is not contraindication for surgery. Your sugar must be controlled. Is that doctor doing shoulder arthroscopy?

Dear user I can very well appreciate your concern. As per the symptoms explained it appears that during your accident you also injured your small stabilising ligaments of your joint. The best treatment for that is arthroscopic repair. It is advisable if you can see an orthopedician dealing in sports injuries in you city so that he can examine you and advise accordingly. Hope that solves your query. Anything more then feel free to revert.

Asked: I'm suffering from mild joint pain specially in small joints in fingers. RA factor is positive. Kindly advice.

B.P.Th, Physiotherapy/Occupational Therapy Assistant Program
Physiotherapist, Mumbai
Asked: I'm suffering from mild joint pain specially in small joints in fingers. RA factor is positive. Kindly advice.
Hello I would like to mention about some of the ENERGY CONSERVATION STRATEGIES (ways to reduce joint stress and reduce pain) which will help to reduce the joint pain in fingers: 1. Must try applying the combination of ICED water and Warm water one at a time for about 10-15 minutes. Place both the hands in warm water first for 10 minutes followed by iced water for 3 minutes and end with warm water immersion again for 10-15 minutes. This will reduce pain and relax painful muscles around small joints in fingers. 2. Make use of larger joints around the wrist instead of using small finger joints. Examples: lifting bags with both the hands and keeping close to the body, opening the door knob using all the fingers around the knob 3. Open and close fingers, bend all fingers backwards only till the point of pain. Can do this for 5-10 times with gentle speed in a day. Preferably early morning to avoid stiffness and more pain 4. Squeeze all your fingers on a towel within the painful limits. Perform 3-5 times initially and after pain subsides, continue for 6-10 times. Feel free to ask questions later on. Take care.

My mothers legs (ankle) swells in summers y is it like this we have consulted to many doctors but cant cured.

MBBS

My mothers legs (ankle) swells in summers y is it like this we have consulted to many doctors but cant cured.
Hi lybrate-user, in summer ankle edema is seen due to insufficient intake of water and excess intake of salt which causes water retention. Also due to warm weather blood vessels are dilated and cause pooling of blood and edema. Sitting and walking for long time may also cause edema. Be well hydrated, drink enough water, decrease salt intake, do ankle exercises, and walk after the weather cools down. All the best.

Hi i' am 22 male. I have a calf muscles problem. I dont know how to describe properly I cant say its pain but a feeling of uncomfortable and numbness I guess. Well I usually dont feel it when I am walking but it starts the uncomfortable feeling when ever I lay or try to take rest. And not only that it get worse after sleep. So what could be the reason I went to doctor and asked about it but he didnt took it seriously. He told me that the reason could probably because I dont do exercise. Yes I usually sleep all the time. Thank you

Hi thanks for your query and welcome to lybrate. I am Dr. Akshay from fortis hospital, new delhi. Pain in calf muscles of legs could actually be due to a lot of reasons ascribed to anatomical structures like muscles, nerves, tendons, blood vessels etc. Can you tell me what has been the duration of this pain? is there any associated swelling or any other s/s of inflammation present? my advice is that you can start with conservative management and see how it goes for the next 2-3 weeks but there are some blood tests which I will like you to do - cbc, esr, crp, serum electrolytes, serum vitamin d levels ( empty stomach) do: - 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 heavy physical activity till pain completely subsides - intensive physical therapy, training and proper muscle conditioning - slow resumption of physical activities with proper pre match warm up and stretching of muscles and short increments in duration of physical activity each day as per pain tolerance. I will be able to advise you in a better manner once I have these blood test reports. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance.
