> Change your grip position to avoid an acute bend at the wrist. > Wrist wraps can help in the short term, but it's better to strengthen your wrists. The way to improve your wrists isn’t by doing more heavy lifts. Instead, work the small muscles around the wrist that provide support. > Do wrist stretches for improving flexibility: Go for Prayer stretches, Wrist flexor stretch and Wrist extensor stretch. Drop a feedback if you find it useful.

Try this for joint pains try this. Identify the mid point between the ankle bone and tendons and give pressure with a blunt edge on either side of your foot for 2 minutes. Also give pressure in the web between 2nd and 3rd finger from your toe for 2 minutes. Finally give a good massage for both feet in hot water. Identify the dipping portion on the back of your knee folding. Press this dip with both middle fingers and hold your knee with your thumbs for support. Please swing 20 times morning and evenings. This will relieve your problem. Consult after 10 days.

Thanks for your query. As you have mentioned you are hypothyroid and this could effect your nerves sometimes. However there are several other causes of this kind of pain most commonly being that you may have a cervical neck disc prolapse with nerve impingement of pressure on the neck. I need to know if you had any pull, strain or trauma involving you neck recently. First of all a neck x-ray needs to be taken. You can use hot or cold water bag compress and pain killers till this is done. Please dont hesitate to ask if you have further queries.

Hi thanks for your query. This kind of pain is usually due to inflammation of your heel fascia. It is chronic pain which get aggravated especially when you walk more and is better with rest. Treatment modalities are aimed at relieving inflammation of the fascia, like ice packs, physical therapy, footwear modification and anti-inflammatory therapy. Do not hesitate to contact me if you need any further assistance. Thanks & regards Dr Akshay Kumar Saxena

In ayurveda we say that your mouth is a reflection of digestive system. These ulcers may me related to your digestive issues or local causes. Ayurvedic medications and lifestyle changes give much wanted relief in both digestive disorders and back pain. Pl consult an ayurvedic physician to know your body temperament-prakruti and treatment accordingly.

Sir, you need conventional angiography as ct angio is not good choice for defenitive management. If it shows myocardial bridge and does not need angioplasty then rest assured; no need to worry. You have already done many unnecessary investigtions but forgotten for the basic coronary angiography. As of now ct angiogrphy is not replacement for conventional angiography. Your cardiologist might have suggested for the same. There is no evidence of ischemia at high level of exercise, so little reason to worry.

Hello. Improvement depends upon the age of a person, the chronicity and stage of the problem. We can't reverse the established pathology back, but we can control the process in the stage it is so that it wouldn't grow further. Apply Bakson’s Rheum Aid oil gently (2-3 times a day) and take orally Bakson’s Rheum-Aid syrup/ 1 tablespoon thrice daily. Also, increase your dietary intake of calcium which is present in green leafy vegetables, milk, milk products, sea food, white legumes, dried fig, black-eyed peas, almonds, oranges, seasame seeds. And vitamin D which is essential for absorption of calcium in our body and is synthesized naturally after getting exposed to sunlight, so early morning sunlight for 10-15 min. 2-3 times a day is mandatory. Apart from this, do walk daily along with physiotherapy will also help you.

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.
