If you have leg pain then you have to rule out the causes for having leg pain. First of all check your weight and your haemoglobin levels, as anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there are no issues with the knee joint or back pain. If not if the pain radiates down the back of thigh and legs then it might be due to sciatica. Kindly consult the nearby physiotherapist. Hope you recover soon from the leg pain.

Hello Mr. lybrate-user, I hear your problem about your on-going backache and here's what you need to do: back pain is quite common in one's daily living. Hence, to take good care of your spine is our first priority. Our spine is a continous structure so when you have pain in the low back, you tend to experience pain in the sides as well as above in the mid back all the way up to the neck as well. There are nerves coming out of our spinal cord and the soft jelly like structure between the bones of the spine tend to get exhausted and over-used because of our repetitive muscle use, lifting heavy things, sitting or standing for a longer period of time and most importantly- when you don't drink enough water for good spine health and others. I would kindly recommend you to do these exercises and notice the change in the pain: 1. To permanently solve your back pain, you must daily perform some gentle back stretches such as: bending backwards as tolerated; hugging both the knees towards the chest to feel the stretch in the entire spine and bending to the sides alternatively. Hold the stretches for atleast 30 seconds- 1 minute and repeat 5-6 times/day 2. Tuck your tummy in everytime you sit up, stand, walk, lie down and while carrying out all daily activities. This makes your core muscles strong (natural belt around the belly) 3. Sleeping- make sure you lie down with both the knees bent at 90 degrees and keep a pillow under the thigh- this releases tension in the back of the thigh muscle (hamstrings) and eventually reduces back pain 4. Hydrate your spine well. Sufficient water intake throughout the day. 5. Change your posture every 30 mins like getting up from the chair, stretching out in back and neck will also help in reducing the pain. Further queries or concerns plesse contact me and I will be happy to help you. Take care.

Hello lybrate-user, I hear your husband's problem for back and neck pain and I will be happy to help you. The major concern here is sitting in one position in a chair for hours! please avoid that. Our spine gets used to sitting and staying in one painful position for so long unknowingly while working at the office that it drains out all the energy of the spine. The water level is also reduced thus making the spine tired, weak, soft and prone to pain and muscle tightness. Let's discuss some tips and exercises that needs to be done in order to fix this problem: 1. Change your posture every 15 mins. Get up from the chair and take a small walk or do some gentle neck and back stretches as mentoned below. This will reduce the constant load on the spine. While sitting on the chair, also do some hand stretches to release overall tension. 2.you must daily perform some gentle back stretches such as: bending backwards as tolerated; hugging both the knees towards the chest to feel the stretch in the entire spine and bending to the sides alternatively. For neck, bend side ways, forwards and backwards to feel the stretch gently without jerks. Hold all the stretches for atleast 30 seconds- 1 minute and repeat 5-6 times/day. 2. Tuck your tummy in everytime you sit up, stand, walk, lie down and while carrying out all daily activities. This makes your core muscles strong (natural belt around the belly) 3. Sleeping- make sure you lie down with both the knees bent at 90 degrees and keep a pillow under the thigh- this releases tension in the back of the thigh muscle (hamstrings) and eventually reduces back pain 4. Hydrate your spine well. Sufficient water intake throughout the day. 5. Also try this stretch, cross one leg on the thigh in a figure of 4 pattern and push the knee down with the hand to feel the stretch in the buttock alternatively. Hold this stretch for 1 minute and repeat for 5-7 times/day. This stretch is called office stretch to instantly release tension off the back of the thigh and buttock muscle called piriformis further queries or concerns please contact me and I will be happy to help you. Take care.
