Age? Is there pain also? Follow these dos and don’ts to help your knees feel their best. 1. Don’t rest too much. Too much rest can weaken your muscles, which can worsen joint pain. Find an exercise program that is safe for your knees and stick with it. If you're not sure which motions are safe or how much you can do, talk with your doctor or a physical therapist. 2. Do exercise. Cardio exercises strengthen the muscles that support your knee and increase flexibility. Weight training and stretching do, too. For cardio, some good choices include walking, swimming, water aerobics, stationary cycling, and elliptical machines. 3. Don’t risk a fall. A painful or unstable knee can make a fall more likely, which can cause more knee damage. 4. Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (rice) is good for knee pain caused by a minor injury or an arthritis flare. Give your knee some rest, apply ice to reduce swelling, wear a compressive bandage, and keep your knee elevated. 5. Don't overlook your weight. If you're overweight, losing weight reduces the stress on your knee. You don’t even need to get to your "ideal" weight. Smaller changes still make a difference. 6. Don't be shy about using a walking aid. A crutch or cane can take the stress off of your knee. Knee splints and braces can also help you stay stable. 7. Don't let your shoes make matters worse. Cushioned insoles can reduce stress on your knees. 8. Do play with temperature. For the first 48 to 72 hours after a knee injury, use a cold pack to ease swelling and numb the pain. A plastic bag of ice or frozen peas works well. Use it for 15 to 20 minutes three or four times a day. Wrap your ice pack in a towel to be kind to your skin. After that, you can heat things up with a warm bath, heating pad, or warm towel for 15 to 20 minutes, three or four times a day. 9. Don’t jar your joint (s). High-impact exercises can further injure painful knees. Avoid jarring exercises such as running, jumping, and kickboxing. Also avoid doing exercises such as lunges and deep squats that put a lot of stress on your knees. These can worsen pain and, if not done correctly, cause injury.

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. If you have leg pain please check your body weight and your hemoglobin levels, as anemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. My suggestion would be to wear mcr chapels which will help you to prevent the weight falling on the if you have back pain while walking and standing first of all check your weight and your hemoglobin levels, as anemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. My suggestion would be to wear mcr chapels which will help you to prevent the weight falling on the back. And also should check whether you have flat foot on the right leg that also might be the reason to have pain in one particular leg.

It looks like you are anaemic. If you have back pain after you sit for long hours then it is due to your haemoglobin levels as it is important to check that. Anaemia always leads to the symptoms of being tired and also having back / leg pain though there may not be any pathological reasons for back pain. It looks like you are anaemic. And also you have to check with your vitamin and calcium, if the bones are weak then automatically the pain gets triggered more as there is less energy during any metabolic activity.

Lifestyle and home remedies rest. Take a break from your normal activities to reduce repetitive strain on your knee, give the injury time to heal and help prevent further damage. A day or two of rest may be all you need for a minor injury. More severe damage is likely to need a longer recovery time. Ice. Ice reduces both pain and inflammation. A bag of frozen peas works well because it covers your whole knee. You also can use an ice pack wrapped in a thin towel to protect your skin. Although ice therapy is generally safe and effective, don't use ice for longer than 20 minutes at a time because of the risk of damage to your nerves and skin. Heat. You may experience temporary pain relief by applying a heat pack or hot-water bottle to the painful area on your knee. Compression. This helps prevent fluid buildup in damaged tissues and maintains knee alignment and stability. Look for a compression bandage that's lightweight, breathable and self-adhesive. It should be tight enough to support your knee without interfering with circulation. Elevation. To help reduce swelling, try propping your injured leg on pillows or sitting in a recliner.

My father is diabetic and has neuropathy issue and uses to stick to walk outside home, so left leg has less sensation.

Frequently he has feeling of dizziness (recently couple of times he lost his balance) 2. In recent time suddenly he gets leg cramps and can’t walk (especially in the night) 3. He is getting severe pain below knee while he walk (even for a step)

Lifestyle changes: daily exercises (>30 minutes per day) or brisk walking or swimming; avoid prolonged sitting or standing (>30 minutes). 4. Food/diet should have following components: •green vegetables e.g. Spinach, fenugreek leaves (methi), radish, etc •coloured vegetables e.g. Tomato, carrot, capsicum (green/red), ladies-finger (bhindi) •milk products e.g. Milk, buttermilk, curd, cheese (paneer) •protein-rich foods e.g. Fish, egg, chicken, pulses (daal) •fibre-rich foods e.g. Bran, oats, brown-rice •fruits e.g. Apple, orange, guava, papaya, pomegranate, berries 5.

Although many medical conditions can cause burning feet, diabetesis the most common. Most burning feet treatments focus on preventing further nerve damage and reducing pain. Causes of burning feet most often, neuropathy is the cause of burning feet. Damaged nerve fibers are more likely to become overactive and misfire. The damaged nerves send pain signals to the brain even though there is no wound. In most people with neuropathy, the leg nerves become damaged first. These people often have tingling and numbness in the feet as well. Many people complain that their feet are overly sensitive to touch (hyperesthesia) and can have varying degrees of burning pain. It can range from mild to disabling. Diabetes and alcohol abuse are by far the most common causes of neuropathy in the legs. Many other conditions can cause neuropathy or a burning sensation in the feet: besides neuropathy, infections and inflammation of the feet can also cause a burning sensation. The most common of these is athlete's foot, an infection of the skin caused by fungus. Peripheral artery disease (pad) also commonly causes burning feet. The poor circulation of blood to the feet may frequently cause pain, tingling, and burning feet, especially while walking. •chronic kidney disease (uremia) •small fiber neuropathy •vitamin deficiency (vitamin b12, folate, and occasionally vitamin b6) •alcohol abuse •low thyroid hormone levels (hypothyroidism) •lyme disease •hiv/aids •amyloid polyneuropathy •drug side effects, including chemotherapy drugs, vitamin b6 overdose, hiv medicines, amiodarone, isoniazid, metformin, and others •erythromelalgia •heavy metal poisoning (lead, mercury, arsenic) •vasculitis (inflammation of bloodvessels) •sarcoidosis •guillain-barre syndrome (gbs) •chronic inflammatory demyelinating polyneuropathy (cidp) •always use the footwear of proper fitting and which is comfortable. •always use socks. Never use shoes without socks. •after a long day work, it is advisable to stretch and also to ice your feet. •provide rest to your feet as much as you can. •avoid the use of alcohol or any narcotic items. •acupuncture or magnetic therapy shall be done whenever possible to keep the nerves active. •follow all the instructions as given by the doctor. Radiculopathy, also commonly referred to as pinched nerve, refers to a set of conditions in which one or more nerves are affected and do not work properly (a neuropathy). This can result in pain (radicular pain), weakness, numbness, or difficulty controlling specific muscles.[1] in a radiculopathy, the problem occurs at or near the root of the nerve, shortly after its exit from the spinal cord. However, the pain or other symptoms often radiate to the part of the body served by that nerve. For example, a nerve root impingement in the neck can produce pain and weakness in the forearm. Likewise, an impingement in the lower back or lumbar-sacral spine can be manifested with symptoms in the foot. The radicular pain that results from a radiculopathy should not be confused with referred pain, which is different both in mechanism and clinical features. This should be due to the sciatic nerve compression in the right side probably close to your l5 vertebrae. It can also be due to the strain on the left leg, try wearing mcr chappals which would help you to get relieved from pain. Juice helps you to get cleansed with toxins. Ginger in general is good for joint pain and honey / black pepper helps you to get rid out of toxins quickly increase rom- free active exercises of lumbar spine. Pelvic tilting forward, backward in crook lying, quadriped, sitting and standing. Mobilization- restoration of intersegmental mobility by accessory pressure enables the patient to regain full functional painfree movement.

Ma'am you need to correct your posture, crossed leg sitting must be avoided. Visit nearest physiotherapy clinic and take ift for 10 days to reduce pain and later ask for strengthening exercises for lower limb. Avoid cross leg sitting, prolonged sitting or standing, sitting or lying on floor for atleast 10 days during electrotherapy.
