Cold compresses can help reduce swelling in the area. Cooling also helps to numb sharp pain. Apply an ice pack for up to 20 minutes, up to five times a day. Use a frozen gel pack, ice cubes in a plastic bag, or a bag of frozen peas. Wrap the cold pack in a soft towel. Do not apply a cold pack directly to skin. Heat therapy heat helps to relax tense muscles and soothe a stiff area. It can help with muscle pain and bonny pain. Use a heated gel pack, heating pad or a hot water bottle.

Regards Lybrate user. Is she taking any current medications that were prescribed after surgery? Did the swelling in the lips occur suddenly or over a period of time? Is there any other changes in her bowel movement patterns? The lower lip swelling may not be directly related with the hip surgery. Occasionally, medications taken after surgery may have side effects or may interact with regular medicines (if she was taking them before surgery). It is recommended to consult the surgeon or a general physician to ascertain why the lower lip tends to swell. As far as her eating concerns, does she have any concern with bowel movements (e.g. Constipation). Slowed bowel movements are common after surgery due to some pain medications' effects, and also reduced mobility. People usually do not move much after having surgery, so the effect of gravity / muscle forces on the abdomen tends to reduce, leading to slowed bowel movements. If the difficulty eating food is associated with bowel concerns, it is essential to have constipation addressed as soon as possible. Kindly consult with a general physician on the same. Try to have her walk as tolerated (with a walker), as per the recommended weight bearing instruction provided by her surgeon to help the bowel movements get better. She may also perform exercises in lying position like straight leg lift, bending the leg as tolerated (per surgeon's instructions), changing positions often, spend more time sitting rather than lying as other strategies to help move bowels.

Regards lybrate-user. I concur with Dr. Julie in regard to torticollis (which means "asymmetrical head or neck position due to a potential problem in the neck muscles or bones"). Posture of neck is dependent on balance of musculature and it could be influenced by constant positioning of head towards any 1 direction (rotation or side bent). The dysfunctional posture could be developmental (i.e. From birth or early onset) or from adopting bad postures. Also to note, if you feel there is worsening of the posture as compared to before, it will be advisable to consult a physician or physiotherapist to get evaluated. Treatment suggestible for the condition will be stretching & strengthening exercises for neck muscles, postural education and awareness to avoid bad postures. My recommendation would be to consult a physician or physiotherapist and undergo an evaluation, so it could be treated appropriately.

I had joint and probably tendon pain for 3 months (cannot grab things, everything hurts, sleeping on shoulder hurts, my muscles all gone, stiff in wrist and elbow, cannot run, walk, exercise as joints hurt) and at first thought it could be arthritis but I tested negative for rheumatoid factor and all and doctor said it wasn't autoimmune problem. If I am negative for rheumatoid arthritis, does that mean I don't have arthritis at all or I could have a different type of arthritis like osteoarthritis etc. Also, I was given arcoxia before test results that said was for joint pain and arthritis and it did made my joints feel better the day after consuming it, no knee, shoulder, wrist, elbow pain (maybe still a little but not as usual). If the arcoxia pills were effective then does that mean I have arthritis or tendonitis? Also they said could be because of stress and anxiety depression that I have unexplainable pains and I do feel a little stressed and anxious these days with depressive thoughts, so could be because my neurotransmitters are low but I am not sure and haven't gone to psychiatrist that doctor recommended cause I was too young for arthritis he said (19yo) so he suspected other things as my test results were also negative saying I am fine. Please, I need explanation before my body dysfunctions and falls apart and then doctors come and notice, I cannot image not being able to use my body.

On my right anterior forearm (the lower hand below the elbow) I am able to feel the muscles which seem to be bumpy. There is no pain at all. But when I roll a finger through it I can feel the bones. What could it be? Please suggest something.

Is there any permanent treatment for focal hand dystonia?
Suffering from the said disease since 20. Now I am 30.
Hand dystonia is a focal dystonia characterized by excessive, involuntary muscle contractions in the fingers, hand, forearm, and sometimes shoulder. Symptoms usually appear when a person is doing a task that requires fine motor coordination of hand and arm muscles. There is no current cure for focal dystonias, either through medical or at-home treatments. However, there are some treatment approaches that have been met with success. These include taking medications known as anticholinergics. Doctors may prescribe a medication called artane (trihexyphenidyl), an anticholinergic. Focal dystonia usually progresses gradually over a period of about five years and then doesn't get any worse. Sometimes, a person's symptoms improve or disappear completely. This is known as total remission and it's thought to occur in around 5-10% of people. The disorder is usually not associated with pain, but it certainly may lead to pain in affected areas. Cervical dystonia can be particularly painful due to degeneration of the spine, irritation of nerve roots or frequent headaches. Limb dystonia may not cause pain initially but may become painful over time.

I never get a temperature, I suffer with chronic pain, I have spinal problems, joint and muscle pain, I have chronic sinusitis, I get infections all the time, often multiple at the same time, I can’t get over illness well at all, iv ended up in hospital several times, I nearly died of pneumonia, the ambulance people were not going to take me to the hospital because I did’t have a fever, until I told them I never get them, when I got to the hospital I was diagnosed with double pneumonia and my oxygen levels were in the 80’s, I had to be put in an induced coma and nearly died, I am still recovering over a year later, they put me on very high dose steroids and that saved my life. When I get infections I have to have several courses of antibiotics and steroids, it can take weeks to months to recover, my pain always feels better on steroids and I always feel so much better in myself in them but I know I can’t stay on them, I have had no luck from drs. I am getting sicker and sicker and i’m more pain all the time and don’t know what else to do, iv had so many tests and nothing significant comes back.

As you said rightly you fall sick often you need to improve your immune system. Consume good vitamin c supplements in the form of tablets as if you are deficient supplements taken through food and vegetables and fruits will not be sufficient. Improve your immune system.

Resisted terminal knee extension: make a loop with a piece of elastic tubing by tying a knot in both ends. Close the knot in a door at knee height. Step into the loop with your injured leg so the tubing is around the back of your knee. Lift the other foot off the ground and hold onto a chair for balance, if needed. Bend the knee with tubing about 45 degrees. Slowly straighten your leg, keeping your thigh muscle tight as you do this. Repeat 15 times. Do 2 sets of 15. If you need an easier way to do this, stand on both legs for better support while you do the exercise. Standing calf stretch: stand facing a wall with your hands on the wall at about eye level. Keep as arthritis is very common that you get generally bilaterally. Ice therapy would definitely help to reduce the inflammation. We also advise you to use knee cap which would help to prevent the knee from damaging further and also to maintain the quadriceps muscle tone.

Treatment options depend upon the severity and stage of the disease. In very early stages, the treatment can be as simple as observation or immobilization. For more advanced stages, surgery is usually considered. Hand therapy does not change the course of the disease; however, it can help to minimize impairment from the disease. Treatment is designed to relieve pain and restore function. Your hand surgeon will advise you of the best treatment options and explain the risks, benefits and side-effects of various treatments for kienbock’s disease.
