Check for uric acid problems if found that you need to take low purine diet. There are many lifestyle and dietary guidelines that can be followed to protect against future flares or prevent gout from occurring in the first instance: maintain a high fluid intake (2-4 liters a day) avoid alcohol maintain a healthy body weight eat a balanced diet limit fish, meat and poultry intake. If attempting to lose weight, avoid low-carbohydrate diets. If carbohydrate intake is insufficient, the body is unable to burn its own fat properly, releasing substances called ketones into the bloodstream. This results in a condition called ketosis that can increase the level of uric acid in the blood. It is most important to avoid foods that are high in purines, to ensure that the levels of uric acid in the blood do not get too high. Here is a list of high-purine foods to be wary of: anchovies asparagus beef kidneys beans dried beans and peas game meats gravy herring liver mackerel mushrooms sardines scallops sweetbreads. I would lose some weight by walking or other exercise, avoid meats

I have pain in my legs, it starts from below the knee on the back side and continues till my ankle and further up to the toe, I also find it difficult to sleep at night because of the pain, can you explain me the reason behind this pain?

It can be a muscular pull if you are having to walk/stand too long at a stretch then this could come up. Do massage with warm mustard oil daily to relieve pain. Also take mag phos 6x - twice daily for next 7 days and get back to me for proper treatment.

Hi I have acidity issue since last one year I tired all the thing but no permanent solution Bcoz of that only I always feel back pain problem.

MD (U), Bachelor of Unani Medicine and Surgery (B.U.M.S)
Unani Specialist, Delhi
Those who suffer frequently from acidity problems may refer to having an “acid stomach.” Eating spicy foods, lack of exercise, irregular eating habits, stress, or drinking alcohol frequently can lead to acidity problems. Drink a glass of lukewarm water every day before going to sleep and immediately after waking up in the morning. Do not drink water during or immediately after a meal though, as it can lead to improper digestion that can contribute to acidity.

I am suffering from severe pain in my back from. Last few days. What should I do to het relief from. My pain. It usually occurs when I took heavy weight material. Please recommend me sone exercise so that I could get rid of my pain. I want to get rid of my pain as quick as possible.

BAMS
Ayurveda, Ambala
First of all check your posture when you are lifting any material like heavy bucket . And try to lift the heavy bucket without bending your back . you may lift the bucket after bending your knees only. This will definitely help you. * Gentle massage with lukewarm mustard oil of your waist area will also give you relief. * Surya Namaskar is only exercise which you need to do. * In diet vegetable protein of cereal , B complex supplements and half teaspoon of haldi in a cup of milk for seven days will give you enough relief.

MBBS, MS - Orthopaedics

Leg pain before periods is not uncommon. Do hot fomentation keep a pillow under the legs at night &/when resting. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days l-carnitine 500mg od/bd x5 days you will need other supportive medicines also. Do knee exercises it may have to be further investigated make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. Do ask for detailed treatment plan. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.
