It might be due to lower back pain which is quite common for adults who are of your mother's age. For shoulder pain you need to do basic shoulder exerices. 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. Back pain / sciatica: back pain can affect people of any age, for different reasonsas people get older, the chance of developing lower back pain increases, due to factors such as previous occupation and degenerative disk disease. Lower back pain may be linked to the bony lumbar spine, discs between the vertebrae, ligaments around the spine and discs, spinal cord and nerves, lower back muscles, abdominal and pelvic internal organs, and the skin around the lumbar area. •acute pain starts suddenly and lasts for up to 6 weeks. •chronic or long-term pain develops over a longer period, lasts for over 3 months, and causes ongoing problems. Home advise: •resting from strenuous activity can help, but moving around will ease stiffness, reduce pain, and prevent muscles from weakening. •applying heat, ice, ultrasound, and electrical stimulation — as well as some muscle-release techniques to the back muscles and soft tissues — may help alleviate pain. •as the pain improves, the physical therapist may introduce some flexibility and strength exercises for the back and abdominal muscles. Techniques for improving posture may also help. •the patient will be encouraged to practice the techniques regularly, even after the pain has gone, to prevent back pain recurrence. Regular exercise helps build strength and control body weight. Guided, low-impact aerobic activities can boost heart health without straining or jerking the back. Before starting any exercise program, talk to a health care professional. There are two main types of exercise that people can do to reduce the risk of back pain: •core-strengthening exercises work the abdominal and back muscles, helping to strengthen muscles that protect the back. •flexibility training aims at improving core flexibility, including the spine, hips, and upper legs. We suggest you to wear lumbosacral corset (belt) which is available at our clinic. If you want you can buy from us, if you are far away from chennai we can send you by courier. The reason why we are conveying you to buy from us is we can demonstrate over the videocall (using whatsapp) and also we can monitor you throughout when to wear it and how long to wear it. And also if you find any difficulty wearing the brace you can also revert back to us for few more suggestions and we can propose you good solution how to go about it. Uses of lumbosacral corset (belt) a lumbosacral corset adds pressure to the intra-abdominal area. This adds stability to the spine. It is prescribed to people suffering from moderate to severe pain. Other benefits of using a lumbar spine belt are: 1.helps in a certain degree of immobilization of facet joints. 2.reduces pain to allow continuation of normal activities. 3.speeds up the healing process. 4.the pressure exerted by a lumbar spine belt helps in stretching the erector spine muscles. 5.this belt can also be used to support the lower back while exercising. Ohelps prevent rolling oprovides stability to lumbar and sacral regions of the back ocan be used when performing actions like lifting and handling heavy items ocan also be used when playing sports orestricts back movement to aid treatment of back problems do’s and don’ts sitting do: • sit as little as possible and then only for short periods. • place a supportive towel roll at the belt line of the back especially when sitting in a car. • when getting up from sitting, keep the normal curves in your back. Move to the front of the seat and stand up by straightening your legs. Avoid bending forward at the waist. • try to keep the normal curves in your back at all times. Don’t: • do not sit on a low soft couch with a deep seat. It will force you to sit with your hips lower than your knees and will round your back. You will loose the normal curve in your back. • do not place your legs straight out in front of you while sitting (e.g. Sitting in the bath tub). Standing do: • if you must stand for a long period of time, keep one leg up on a foot stool. • adapt work heights. Don’t: • avoid half bent positions. Lifting avoid lifting if you can. Do: • use the correct lifting technique. Keep your back straight when lifting. Never stoop or bend forward. Stand close to the load, have a firm footing and wide stance. Kneel on one knee, keeping the back straight. Have a secure grip on the load and lift by straightening your knees. Do a steady lift. Shift your feet to turn and do not twist your back. Don’t: • do not jerk when you lift. • do not bend over the object you are lifting. Lying do: • sleep on a good firm surface. • if your bed sags, use slats or plywood supports between the mattress and base to firm it. You also can place the mattress on the floor, a simple but temporary solution. • you may be more comfortable at night when you use a pillow for support. Don’t: • do not sleep on your stomach unless advised to do so by your doctor or physical therapist. Bending forward do: • keep the natural curves of your back when doing these and other activities: making a bed, vacuuming, sweeping or mopping the floor, weeding the garden or raking leaves. Coughing and sneezing do: • bend backwards to increase the curve of your back while you cough or sneeze. Driving a car do: • drive the car as little as possible. It is better to be a passenger than to drive yourself. • move the seat forward to the steering wheel. Your seat must be close enough to the wheel to keep the natural curves of your back. If your hips are lower than your knees in this position, raise yourself by sitting on a pillow. Exercises for low back pain safety guidelines • an increase in your low back pain can be expected with these exercises. This is acceptable as long as your leg symptoms are not increasing. • if while doing these exercises, your pain worsens or you have new pain or symptoms, stop the exercises and discuss your symptoms with your doctor or physical therapist. • stop exercising and let your doctor or physical therapist know right away if you have any change in your bowel or bladder control or any increase in weakness in your leg or foot. Exercises ‰ •press-ups: keep your back and buttocks relaxed and use your arms to press up. Concentrate on keeping your hips down and push up your upper body as high as possible. •double knee to chest: grasp both your knees with your hands and pull toward your shoulders. Hold the stretch for 1 second. Let your knees return, but keep them bent at arms length. ‰ •lumbar spine stretches: lie on your back. Bring your knees towards your chest. Rotate your knees towards the pain. •side-lying position: lie on your side and face forward. Have both arms straight in front and bend your knees. Turn your head as you move your top arm across your body as far as you can. Keep your arm in place and turn your head back to the starting position. Look back again and turn your head farther if you can. Bring your head and arm back to the starting position. Relax and repeat 10 times on each side. •hamstring stretch: lie on your back with your legs out straight. Raise your leg up and put your hands around the upper leg for support. Slowly straighten the raised knee until you feel a stretch in the back of the upper leg. Hold, then relax and repeat 10 times on each leg. •standing arch: stand with your feet apart and hands on the small of your back with fingers pointing backwards. Bend backwards at the waist, supporting the trunk with your hands. Keep your knees straight. Hold for 5 seconds. Repeat 3 to 5 times. Side glides: stand at a right angle to the wall about 2 feet o eliminate your pain improve your muscular endurance and strength attain better posture, balance, body awareness and co-ordination improve your balance and flexibility learn to lift properly. posture when standing: make sure you have a neutral pelvic position. Stand upright, head facing forward, back straight, and balance your weight evenly on both feet. Keep your legs straight and your head in line with your spine. Posture when sitting: a good seat for working should have good back support, arm rests and a swivel base. When sitting, try to keep your knees and hips level and keep your feet flat on the floor, or use a footstool. You should ideally be able to sit upright with support in the small of your back. If you are using a keyboard, make sure your elbows are at right-angles and that your forearms are horizontal. Shoes: flat shoes place less of a strain on the back. Driving: it is important to have proper support for your back. Make sure the wing mirrors are properly positioned so you do not need to twist. The pedals should be squarely in front of your feet. If you are on a long journey, have plenty of breaks. Get out of the car and walk around. Bed: you should have a mattress that keeps your spine straight, while at the same time supporting the weight of your shoulders and buttocks. Use a pillow, but not one that forces your neck into a steep angle. You become aware of a frozen shoulder when it begins to hurt. The pain then causes you to limit your movement. Moving the shoulder less and less increases its stiffness. Before long, you find that you can’t move your shoulder as you once did. Reaching for an item on a high shelf becomes difficult, if not impossible. When it’s severe, you might not be able to do everyday tasks that involve shoulder movement such as dressing. Shoulder exercises and stretchesregular exercises and stretches can keep your shoulder strong and flexible. A few things to remember before swinging in to exercises: •stop any exercise if you have more shoulder pain. It may be too soon for you to try. •watch your form. Exercising incorrectly can also cause or worsen shoulder problems. •warm up, even before deep stretching. Light shoulder rolls, gentle movements, or even a warm shower are all ways to warm up your muscles before exercise and stretching. Pendulum stretch for range of motion•stand and bend at the waist. •let your arm on the injured side hang straight down. •keep your neck relaxed. •move your arm in a circle up to 20 times. •do once or more times in a day. Overhead shoulder stretch•sit or stand to do this shoulder stretch. •intertwine your fingers in front of you. •bend your elbows and raise your arms above your head. You can also place your hands on your head or behind it. •gently squeeze your shoulder blades together to move your elbows back. •continue for up to 20 repetitions. Repeat 5 to 10 times a day. Physical therapyphysical therapy is the most common treatment for a frozen shoulder. The goal is to stretch your shoulder joint and regain the lost motion. It can take anywhere from a few weeks to nine months to see progress. A home exercise program of gentle range of motion exercises is important. If you don't see progress after six months of intense, daily exercises, speak to your doctor about other options. Medicationsto treat the pain and reduce your joint inflammation, your doctor may recommend an anti- inflammatory medication like aspirin, ibuprofen, or naproxen sodium. A steroid injection you’re your shoulder joint may also help. Home careplacing an ice pack on your shoulder for 15 minutes at a time several times per day can help to decrease pain. If you’re working with a physical therapist, the exercises can be done at home. Your physical therapist will provide instructions on the types of exercises you must do, how often to do them, and when to push yourself harder. Most people with a frozen shoulder can improve their condition without surgery. You might become weak due to your uterus removal for which you have consume rich mineral and vitamin diet and also you should take rich calcium for your bone strength. And also hormonal imbalance should be noted and please consult your gyneecologist for the hormonal imbalance of both estrogen and progesterone.

There is no medicine or oil etc for this. These are all market gimmicks. Follow this 1. Don't take tea empty stomach. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). No only biscuits or rusk will not do. 2. Don't overeat 3. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. U should eat whatever your mother or grandparent eat in bfast. I mean to say whatever is your traditional food. If punjabi eat paratha, if belongs to south then take idli/ dosa etc. 4. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, any fresh n seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 5. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 6. Maintain active life style7. Avoid fast foods, spicy n fried foods, carbonated beverages 8. Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 9.

I am sorry to hear about your concern but will be happy to assist you. Because the morning-after pill creates a large surge of progesterone in the body, and then abruptly drops soon after, it is a common side effect to see a temporary increase in acne when taking this form of birth control occasionally. Let's connect over a call so that we can discuss your concern in details and make a suitable treatment plan for you.

I am 30 married having pcod. I take telma 40 and lypaglin for high bp and cholesterol daily. My period is irregular and my prolactin e level gets high very often and then until I take cabergoline my periods won't come. Last month my doctor prescribed me to take meprate twice a day for 8 days every month and I will get my period. Is meprate a steroid and has side effects of being diabetic and get any infection if I take meprate every month? In that case is there any alternate option of getting my period regularly without any steroid?

I think you can work out on your other aspects like thyroid profile and sugars as well to find out if it is high may be the reason for irregular period is itself high cholesterol levels hypertension and prolactin so try to regularise it definitely reduce your weight down to 60 kgs from 70 kg. this gradually reduces your duration of cycle prolongation and helps you in having regular periods it simultaneously correct the hypertension and cholesterol levels instead of switching over to medications you can try to switch over to some healthy lifestyle and sleep pattern and try to reduce back to your normal weight which you were long back

You need thorough investigation for pcod. After getting withdrawal period, you have to take drugs for ovulation. Reddish brown color of the discharge is not a matter to worry. It is the minimal bleed following withdrawal bleeding.

No you shouldn't, one thing you must remember that hormone therapy do have some adverse effects in your health in future, so remember it, pcos is very much curable by proper homeopathic treatment, if you wants then you can go for it.
