I am gastritis and sugar patient and also left hand back pain heart pain. Last day angiography done nothing comes no blockage. But acid in stomach still today and also gas and heartburn. Please give answers gastroenterologist. Now further what to do if endoscopy ?or? 2 times endoscopy done nothing comes on.

Diploma in Obstetrics & Gynaecology, MBBS

Good to know about no blockages in heart vessels and normal endoscopy reports at age 42. Your blood sugar reports & BP should be in control too, so I presume. Our eating habits are faulty-accept it. Acid is produced within stomach to make food softer to digest and process is going on @ 24 hours whether we eat or fast-both are bad if done in excess. Drink either of these every 2 hours so that acid does not remain collected in stomach. It gets moving the healthy way without hurting the inner layer of stomach causing acidity and ulcers. 1) green tea or normal tea with ginger and saunf. 2) clear soups of any kind. 3) just plain warm water and avoid chilled cold drinks. 4) drink warm water with a bit of honey + lemon (cut down 20 calories elsewhere. 5) do eat normal food regularly but avoid excess of oils and spices ,which you must be taking care because of DM & prevention of heart disease. 5) it is not necessary to eat every vegetable/fruit. Avoid good foods but causing distention. 6) avoid non veg heavy foods if you eat. You can have boiled /scrambled eggs 7) stop Pantocid ,it has long term bad effects like kidney failure. Take saunf, heeng, jeera,ajwain, ginger and garlic and other kitchen masalas which soften the food. 8) digene type of antacids are safer as they are just chalk! 9) diluted toned milk/ chhachh are natural ant acids. 10) take these which work like cotton to absorb acid in stomach but do consider calories. These foods are healthy and nourishing too e g bananas, boiled potatoes but not fried, khichri or boiled rice and moong daal with curd, daal-roti-dahi, soft raw vegetables and fruits like guava, carrots ,radishes, salad leafy vegeies. Oats and other breakfast cereals. No juices but only fruits with lots of fiber. You can take enzyme syrups like unizyme/ aristozyme for better digestion. Good luck and do write back after a week.

Hi I am suffering from back pain due to long sitting in the office what should I do to cure from this pain.

Physiotherapist, Noida
Apply Hot Fomentation twice daily. Avoid bending in front. Postural Correction- Sit Tall, Walk Tall. Extension Exercises x 15 times x twice daily - lying on tummy, take left arm up for 3 seconds, then bring it down, right arm up for 3 seconds, bring down. Bring right leg up, hold for 3 seconds, bring it down. Then right leg up and hold for 3 seconds and bring it down. Repeat twice a day- 10 times. Bhujang Asana -- Lie flat on your stomach, keeping the palms out, bend the neck backward, take a deep breath and while holding it for 6 seconds, raise the chest up. Release breath and relax your body. Repeat the exercise 15 times twice daily.

I am suffering from upper arm pain, swelling in joints, burning sensation under feet, sometimes difficulty to breath. Is this the symptoms of heart disease. ?

Merrithew Stott Pilates, Bachelor of Physiotherapy

You should get your ecg and an angiogram done. This to rule heart issues. Secondly do a cold fermentation for your feet to cool down the burning sensation. Proper breathing exercise daily will also help in reducing difficulty in breathing. Exercise dialy and wear proper shoes to support your feet.

I'm 18 years old male having a dislocated sternoclavicular joint. Please help me.

Fellow of Royal College of Surgeons (Trauma and Orthopaedics), Diploma in Trauma Surgery, Membership of the Royal College of Surgeons (MRCS), DNB (Orthopedics), MBBS
Orthopedist, Mumbai
As doctor kumar said, mild variety of sternoclavicular dislocations do not need surgical treatment. This is a relatively less common injury. The 6 grades mentioned by Dr. Kumar may be for acromioclavicular dislocation. Sternoclavicular dislocations have three main types- simple sprain, partial dislocation and complete dislocation. The treatment depends on the type and the direction of the dislocation.

I am suffering from back pain for last two year. I consult with many doctors but there was no improvement. Please suggest me proper treatment.

Orthopedist, Solapur
I would suggest you to get a proper xray of the spine done to rule out any bony abnormality. Start with analgesic like combination of diclofenac and thiocolchicoside for atleast 7 days twice daily after food if pain subsides start with physiotherapy in form of back extension exercises and core strengthening exercises avoid sitting in one posture for longer duration and lifting weight while bending forward.

Arthroscopy - Things To Remember During and Post Procedure!

DNB (Orthopedics), Fellowship in Joint Replacement, MS - Orthopaedics
Orthopedist, Jaipur
Arthroscopy - Things To Remember During and Post Procedure!

Literally translated into two words – arthro (joint) and scopy (to look), arthroscopy refers to a process used to look into a joint. The doctor uses an instrument known as arthroscope which is used to examine a joint in greater detail. What was initially used mainly in diagnosis has gradually grown to include use of instruments through the arthrocope, thereby allowing for some surgical treatments to be done as well.


  1. Diagnosis of joint problems like cartilage tears
  2. Repairing joint problems
  3. Remove foreign bodies in a joint
  4. Track response to treatments
  5. Identify disease progression
  6. Used during an open surgery to:
    • Remove fragments or spurs of tissues
    • Shave off sharp edges
    • Collect fluid or tissue samples
    • Remove swollen tissues
    • Take biopsy
    • Extract swollen joint fragments
    • Remove deposits of calcium or other minerals


  1. Usually done as an outpatient procedure
  2. The procedure in terms of what to expect will be explained to the patient
  3. A sedative is given and the area to be studied is usually shaven and topical antiseptic is applied
  4. Vital signs are monitored
  5. Regional or local anethesia is generally used, where only the joint to be studied is injecte with a local anesthetic.
  6. In cases where the patient is undergoing an open surgery, general anesthesia would be given.
  7. The patient’s position would depend on the joint being studied, usually, is made to lie on the back.
  8. A tourniquet is used to restrict blood flow to the particular joint
  9. A small incision is made in the joint space and the instrument is introduced into the joint space. There is a constant slow flow of saline or another irrigant (to which chlorhexidine might be added) to improve visibility and to remove debris and control infection
  10. Other joint tools are used as required during the procedure either to cut off small fragments of tissue or to remove debris or foreign body.
  11. Once all procedures are done, the joint is thoroughly flushed to clear off any debris.
  12. It is closed with stitches after final inspection
  13. During recovery, crutches or splints may be used depending on the patient’s overall condition
  14. Duration of the procedure depends on what actually was done. An inspection could last about 20 minutes while a procedure could take a couple of hours.

After the procedure:

  1. Complications are very rare, maybe painful operated joint for a couple of days
  2. Rest the joint well for a couple of days
  3. Ice, pain killers, and compression bandage may be required
  4. Return to normal activity and exercises to be followed as dictated by the orthopedist.
