I would like to suggest you to modified your life style as well as work place as most of the back pain and neck pain occurs becuase of fail to follow the ergonomics so modified your work place accoding to the ergonomics and also avoid to sit for a longer time. Take a move every hour or two hour so it will reduced the stress on back muscles as well as neck muscles and do regualarly neck and back exercise then also it will not relieve and you getting stiffness in spine as well as night ache then I suggest you to do the blood report of hla-b27.

Hi. Backpain is a common problem. It is mainly due to bad posture and activities like bad reading position, bad chairs n bad bed etc. Stand and walk upright without stooping. Sit in a proper chair. Take 5-10 min breaks every 2 hrs. Sleep on a flat bed. Do exercise daily. While sleeping keep a rolled towel under your knees. Back pain gets relieved by lifestyle modifications. Thank you.

Morton's neuroma involves a thickening of the tissue around one of the nerves leading to your toes. This can cause a sharp, burning pain in the ball of your foot. Your toes also may sting, burn or feel numb. High-heeled shoes have been linked to the development of Morton's neuroma. Many people experience relief by switching to lower heeled shoes with wider toe boxes. Sometimes corticosteroid injections or surgery may be necessary.

During summer there will be exhaustion throughout. Please do drink lots of fluids. Take rest in the afternoon. Please do a cold fermentation for your legs. That will reduce the heat within the body. Please follow these instructions. Your pain will come down soon.

Stiffness in back & other joints is quite a common condition. Rule out diabetes & vit. D deficiency or any other metabolic disorder. 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. Any way take ibuprofen 200mg od & sos x 5days you will need other supportive medicines also. Take multivitamins & other antioxidants along with. Do back (spine) exercises contact me again if need be. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take do reply back for private consultation and detailed treatment plan.

Hello, Shin Pains have multiple causes other than vit d, you should rule them all out 1. Improper footwear while working out 2. Improper techniques of working out 3. Insufficient warm up 4. Weakness of certain muscle groups along with tightness of other muscle groups 5. Graded increase in workout levels You should try to correct these and should be better. Thanks.

Usually it happens due to repetitive use of tools for prolonged period like scissors screwdrivers which press firmly on the tendon sheath at the base of finger or thumb and also Diabetic and Rheumatoid arthritis are at increased risk
Treatment

4 . Exercises to improve flexibility and functionality

Assuming there is no history of injury from past 1 week, may be the pain is due to osteoarthritis, you need to get an x- ray done, to rule out that. Till that time you can apply" pain killer oil" a homoeopathic product from similia company, this oil has marvelous results on soft tissue as well as arthritic changes of the joints.

I am suffering with a severe back ache for the past two months. Kindly help me with a diagnosis.
Hi lybrate-user, reason for back pain can be different but mainly it is differentiated into discogenic (due to disc herniation of different types such as bulge, protrusion, extrusion & sequestration) & non discogenic (arising from other structures of lumbar spine such as facet joints, paraspinal/quadratus/ piriformis muscles spasm, vertebral body itself in case of compression fracture, sacroiliac joints etc). It is important to show to interventional pain specialist or orthopedician dealing with spine (not every orthopedician goes into spine details) for proper diagnosis & according to diagnosis treatment will vary from conservative management with physiotherapy to epidural nerve block to minimally invasive spine interventions such as disc nucleoplasty or even surgery in some cases, such as endoscopic discectomy or open spine surgery to cure it permanently. My advise will be to get proper diagnosis of backache & treatement further to cure it. Hope it helps.

A high uric acid level can be caused when your body either produces too much uric acid or your kidneys don't eliminate uric acid rapidly enough. A high uric acid level may cause increasingly frequent attacks of gout, or it may never cause problems. A high uric acid level may also cause some people to develop kidney stones or kidney failure. And some people with a high uric acid level also develop high blood pressure, heart disease or chronic kidney disease, but it's often unclear whether this is a direct cause or merely an early warning sign of these conditions. Factors that may cause a high uric acid level in your blood include: Diuretic medications (water pills),Drinking too much alcohol,Genetics (inherited tendencies),hypothyroidism (underactive thyroid),Immune-suppressing drugs,Niacin, or vitamin B-3, obesity,psoriasis, Purine-rich diet — organ meat, game meat, anchovies, herring, gravy, dried beans, driedpeas, mushrooms and other foods Renal insufficiency — inability of the kidneys to filter waste Tumor lysis syndrome — a rapid release of cells into the blood caused by certain cancers or by chemotherapy for those cancers,Also, you may be monitored for high uric acid levels when undergoing chemotherapy or radiation treatment for cancer. Avoid protein diets, avoid more milk products. bad habits , fast food/fat/oily,salty foods. Coffee, smoking, alcohol intake. Non-veg., take whole grain,oats,green veg.,plenty of water in day time, 1 glass of water at night before bed. Take tab. Zyloric 100 mg once a day. Tab. Ulracet sos for pain in joints.
