Patient needs to be examined in detail & be investigated. Anyway you may try- sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck back knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. For emergency treatment contact your nearest hospital or family doctor. If it does not give relief in 4-5 days then inform me.

UAM suffering from low back pain list 2 weeks and I have chest pain can you suggest what should be done.

MSPT (Master of Physical Therapy)
Physiotherapist,
UAM suffering from low back pain list 2 weeks and I have chest pain can you suggest what should be done.
If you have pain at the mid of your back there is a chance that it gets radiated towards front resembling chest pain or else you may have flat back which puts over workload to your chest area- upper back joints and ribs which may cause such pain. Exercises: 1. Lie on the abdomen and lift your upper body from ground as much as possible and let is down - repeat for 15-20 times. ****don't hold breath and do this - breath in when you lift and breath out when you relax towards ground*****. 2. Lie on your back - have a towel roll under the paining area - lift your hands above head and place on floor - bend your knees - breath in and out fully for 20-25 times.

What are symptoms of Gouty Arthritis and how can they be distinguished from joint pain due to other reasons like Calcium deficiency, damage to nerves due to DM, Osteoporosis etc.

What are symptoms of Gouty Arthritis and how can they be distinguished from joint pain due to other reasons like Calc...
Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, gouty arthritis usually presents with sudden onset of joint pains, usually a single joint and most commonly the the joint of the great toe. This pain is usually severe accompanied by swelling, redness, restricted movement at the affected joint. It usually comes in acute episodic attacks. Sometimes you can also have associated abdominal pains. To differentiate between this and the other conditions you are talking about, you have to understand that the other conditions you mentioned are generalised conditions affecting the entire skeletal system. So they usually cause pains in multiple joints and also a generalised bank pain. Because the cause is also constant, they tend to cause a continuous pain or activity related pain unlike the pain caused by an episode of gouty arthritis. Hope this helps.
