Dear you probably have a muscle problem. The hamstrings can give pain on getting up and down. Foot pain may be due to planter fasciitis or any other muscle of the foot. Apply ice and give rest to the muscle maybe yoga can help. If not relieved you need detailed evaluation and imaging to come to a diagnosis.

Hi, you should consult with general surgeon for needful. This may need decompression surgery. Do not worry this is not a major surgery. If there is no relief with medications surgery is required. You can ask about intralesional steroid injections also, this may give you relief,

I am suffering from back pain from months I consult doctors but nothing is working what can I do pls help me?
Hello lybrate user, back pain that is associated with day time sedentary jobs like computer professional s are associated with paraspinal muscle spasms. The best way to tackle this sort of pain is to do well spaced stretching exercises of the back, back extension exercises, using hot water bags to provide relief and avoiding stooping posture while sitting. Posture also plays a very important part in back pain, always maintain a straight posture while sitting. While getting up from the bed try to first go on your left or right side of the body and get up side ways. Avoid cruntches or sit-ups: they may increase the pressure on your back and may predispose to slip disc. Always maintain a healthy lifestyle in terms of regular brisk walking, meditation, eating healthy. P. S: try to avoid pain killers (analgesics) as much as possible as many are associated with side effects that you may not be aware of. Stay healthy. Stay happy god bless you.

Lybrate-user, madam, looking at her height and weight it is clear that she has (bmi 51.94kg/m2) morbid obesity, which is the main reason for her problems with joints and joint pain. Unless the weight is reduced joint pain will not go away. She may have to look the option of bariatric surgery, which can help in reduction weight.

Hi pain could be because of bony spurs in the heel. Get x-ray done. And wear heel cushions in the shoes, take ultrasound therapy and contrast bath in physiotherapy. It helps along with foot ankle ex's.

I am 19 years old, I am having pain in the tail of my backbone. I think it is called coccyx. I had the same pain when I was 17; when did an ultrasound scan doctor told there was puss and the puss was removed manually without any minor surgery or anything. I am experiencing the same pain after 2 years I am doing my btech long away from my home. I am very concerned. What should I do. Is this normal?

Hi this is not normal. First we have to rule out infection as you have a history of same. If it is not infective than start ice therapy alonge with frequent change of posture while sitting. Also use a soft cushion. Avoid longe sitting on hard surface. Do squeezing exercises for perineal area & buttucks. Try to sit on hips & cross your legs frequently to change weight.

Hi Doc, I m a 35years old male without a job, married and have 3 kids. I am very much worried with my weight. My height is 5feet 9inches and I weigh approximately 120kgs. I have gone thru the material ober tje internet flowing like flood but tjey all say me to either jog or run on treadmill about an hour or so. I can not really jog or run or neither walk briskly (due to excess weight I suppose). I am happy to walk slowly and gradually increase the speed of my steps. So, here comes the question how can I steadily reduce my weight and melt this excess fat on my body? Would you recommend any plan of action for me to achieve my target goal of 85kgs or less than 90kgs at least? Would you also let me know to follow any home remedies? I know about honey lemon and luke warm water. Apart from that if any wud you recommend me to get thru this tough time that will be really helpful and appreciable. Anticipate a quicker reply as I can not weight to lose weight. Note: I have a knee joint pain at the moment so can not run or jogg. Developed this due to intense running on treadmill almost 7 to 8 years ago. Thanks and regards, MSN.

Hello lybrate-user your bmi is 39 which is significantly higher that normal range of 18 to 23. You fall in the category of morbid obesity, your knee problems and your breathing problems are due to weight. In this situation loosing weight with just diet and exercise is almost impossible. Bariatric surgery can come to your help. It really gives good result, weight loss, solving knee problems, treating diabetes and hypertension. You can go through my website drchiragthakkar. Com for further details of bariatric surgery.

You can try steroid injections in knee. They are cheap and pretty safe. But if knees are very damaged then operation can be good for long term.
