Good morning, from the symptoms that you have given, there are two different problems that you are having. Firstly, your knee joint pain. Taking your age and symptoms into consideration, it is very likely to be a degenerative joint disease or osteoarthritis. You need to get some basic blood tests like serum calcium and uric acid levels and a knee joint x ray (lateral and ap view). It is better to avoid strong pain killers as they can affect your kidneys and gi tract. You can take paracetamol 650 mg if there is a lot of pain. Local ice pack application can help. However, it is a progressive disorder. You can take calcium supplements orally. Secondly, the headache may have many reasons. It is difficult to comment without examining. It is advisable to get your blood pressure checked and an eye examination done. Too much of stress may be related to headache. Hope this helps

Hi you may have to stop these exercises and take orthopaedic doctor consultation for assessment. If nothing serious is detected, which is likely to be, gentle exercises under a trained physiotherapist and having high protein nutritious diet is all that shall help. Maybe exercises you do are incorrectly done. One should always do yoga exercises after learning under trained yoga teacher, and if it hurts must stop best wishes.

Hello, first of all you should know what is backache and by which factors it caused and aggravated. The usual cause of low back pain is the sedentary lifestyle that we lead these days. There is hardly any movement. We remain seated most of the time and stand for very short periods of time. Unfortunately walking, running and cycling like activities are also not a part of our daily routine. To add to it, our diet consists more and more of junk food. Fresh fruits, vegetables and high fibre foods are consumed less and less. These daily practices lead to obesity. The increased body weight puts lot of pressure on the spine which has to bear all the extra unwanted weight. The back muscles which are already weak due to lack of exercise and wrong posture are unable to cope with this increased load. This causes pain in the back muscles. Management for Back Pain:-Along with medicines for relieving pain, one needs to identify the cause and correct it. This may require some medicines or some correction in your posture or reducing weight or improving your lifestyle. At the same time, there is a need to work on the local muscle strengthening. Back muscles need to be strengthened so that they can bear the weight of the upper body. For this exercises of the back muscles are very helpful. Regular walking is also very helpful as it is a wholesome exercise of the body, improves blood circulation and helps lose weight. Most importantly if you are overweight then losing weight is an important part of the whole treatment plan .Long term use of painkillers for low back pain is harmful Treatment for back pain:- Homeopathic medicines are very helpful. They not only treat the acute stages but are also used for the treatment of chronic back pain.Selection of the exact remedy depends upon the individual symptoms of the person.So share the complete symptom picture for the proper treament. In the mean time take Arnica 200, 3 drops in the morning and Rhus tox. 200, 3 drops at night for 7 days.Take care.

Hello Mr. Lybrate user knee pain is a very common medical condition, occurs due to constant wear and tear of the knee joint causes age knee injury arthritis symptoms it can be a dull pain or a sharp unbearable pain capable of making a person immobile Tips to manage massage regularly for 10 mins. Massage therapy helps relieve joint pain by improving circulation and soothing inflammation. Regular massage can improve pain, stiffness and range of motion in the affected joint. To massage the affected area, use warm oil like coconut, olive, mustard, castor or garlic oil and apply gentle pressure while massaging. Heat fomentation by hot water bag helps decrease pain, increase blood flow and relax sore muscles and joints. Fry fenugreek seeds powder it, take two tsp mix with hot water. Apply on the affected joint for 30 mins regularly for 7 days. Precaution: avoid excess use of knee joint for few days. Reduce your weight if overweight. Avoid prolong standing. Relax your knee joint by flexion rotation excercise.

There is no medicine or kit that can make you slim. Kindly give up this search or research into magic slimming medicines. I have seen many patients who keep trying out such stuff and keep wasting thousands of rupees and millions of hopes. The best and the only way to reduce weight is to reduce eating junk. Most of the overweight persons are addicted to Sugary Stuff/Oily Stuff/Salt or all of the above. You have to break out from these addictions. Respect your body and respect nature. Make your life more active. Look at our Olympic medalists and see the kind of effort they put in to stay fit and healthy. Do you think anyone can achieve that kind of fitness by sitting at home and eating some pills? Take charge of your health and your wellbeing. No one else can do it for you. You are in the middle age when body starts aging and giving trouble. This is the time for you to change your lifestyle and get healthy so that you can be fit for the next 60 years at least. Stay fit, stay healthy, stay happy.
