Hey I have been suffering from back pain and it have been irritating me so what to do can any one say.
It's usually the result of years of wear and tear on joints and occurs when cartilage, the tissue cushioning ends of the bones within the joints disintegrates and wears away. This causes friction among bones, leading to pain, swelling deformity and loss of motion in the joint.
While osteoarthritis mostly affect women, more so after menopause, men also can get affect after 60's. The knees are among the joints most frequently damaged by osteoarthritis and can even lead to disability. Osteoarthritis of the hip on the other hand severely impairs the mobility.
Some common symptoms of osteoarthritis are: joint pain, swelling or tenderness in one or more joints, stiffness after getting out of bed, or sitting for a long time, unable to walk even a few yard and a crunching feeling or sound of bone rubbing on bone. Osteoarthritis of weight bearing joints progress at much faster rate in presence of osteoporosis (soft and weak bone), and can make a patient crippled easily, if proper timely measures are not taken
Diagnosis involves a medley of assessments including medical history, physical examination, x rays and lab tests a patient's daily activities and mental state are important factors too which doctors consider, while relating to the symptoms of osteoarthritis affecting the patient's daily life.
In terms of treatment options, exercise is one of the best tools. It inculcates a positive outlook, manages pain better, and helps in watching one's weight. For temporary pain relief, patients can try warm towels, hot packs, a warm bath or shower. Nsaids or non steroidal anti inflammatory drugs also help reduce pain and inflammation from osteoarthritis.
Lastly for end stage osteoarthritis and when other modalities of treatment have been tried and failed surgery like" joint replacement" can give new leash of life to the patient.
I'm a girl aged 22 having severe bacķache problem since last 6 months. The ache is in lower beltline and reaches my shoulders, buttocks.
Hey Doc, I keep getting cramps randomly all over my body, even in weird places like my face, neck and back of my head or on the upper side of my head. I am most worried about it on the back of my head (near the cerebellum) and on the upper head. It pains a lot and there is almost nothing I can do to prevent it. It occurs more frequently while I am lifting weights in the gym or after getting less sleep or when its very cold. It almost paralyses me and only stops when I start taking deep breaths. Is there some kind of problem? Should I consult my doctor or get some tests done? It really worries me. Also, is it normal to get cramps in the neck, because even thats scary. Please guide me on what action to take.

Hammer toe is a condition where the toe of the patient becomes deformed. The appearance of the toe will bear a downward curl that will make it look abnormal. This condition can mostly be seen during the childhood itself and it usually is known to affect the second or third toe on the foot. Let us find out more about the symptoms, risk factors and treatment for this condition.
- Symptoms: The sheer discomfort of walking around with a hammer toe is one of the first symptoms of the condition. The permanent damage will be visible in the way the toe curls and becomes deformed. The formation of corn or calluses is also a common symptom of this condition, while some patients may also experience the growth of claw like toes. Most patients feel pain when they are walking or running even as inflexibility sets in, which makes it difficult to flex the foot or stretch and wiggle the toes properly.
- Risk Factors: While the most common causes of the hammer toe remain an injury or even arthritis, it may be seen that those with a family history and prolonged use of high and pointed heels may be at risk more than others. This deformity can happen at birth or may progress as age catches on, depending on the risk factors at play. Also, when the patient suffers from the growth of calluses, corns and bunions that go untreated for a long time, it may manifest into a hammer toe eventually. This happens because these growths can make the layer of the skin thick and lead to a perpetual formation in the area due to the constant friction that also causes pain and discomfort. People with a high foot arch are also at risk of developing a hammer toe.
- Treatment: The orthopaedic specialist is the best person who can help with the diagnosis and treatment of this condition. While the diagnosis consists of the conduct of an X-ray to find the cause and extent of the damage, the doctor may also conduct nerve function tests to find out if any nerves have been damaged for the condition to have taken place. Also, the specialist will try to find causes like ligament injuries and other such things that could have led to the condition. Accordingly, the treatment method will be put forth. A mild hammer toe can be treated by wearing more comfortable footwear with pads to treat corns and other growths. For a severe condition, surgery is the only way out.
Ensure that you report the smallest and most persistent changes to your doctor so that treatment can take place well in time. If you wish to discuss about any specific problem, you can consult an Orthopedist.
