I had a scooter accident on 25th march 2018 and I was not able to stand properly on my left leg. It was only after a crape bandage was put around my left knee could I stand or walk. I had to take rest for two days and there was no inflammation or swelling and the pain also got subjugated. A few days after this there was pain in the inner side of my left knee bend and it spread to my feet a point just at the joint of little finger and ring finger at the inner side of my left feet. Consulted a doctor and a mri was taken and the impressions are: * degenerative tear in body of lateral meniscus *oblique tear in posterior horn of medial meniscus *joint effusion with effusion in sprapatellar bursa *bone contusion in medial patellar facet and lateral femoral condyle - possibly reduced patellar dislocation. No high grade tears in patellofemoral ligament *tricompartmental osteoarthritis. I have been under treatment since april and tried allopathic and ayurvedic treatments with no reduction of the pain and also I get numbness in my left leg from feet onwards and left lumbar down words within a minute or so of my standing on my legs, which continues for two/three minutes and start disappearing, but the numbness of the feet still persists till I sit down. Once I sit, the numbness goes. Can any of your doctors help me to get the right kind of treatment. Will homoeopathy would be of any help? I have taken paracetamol injection, neuron injections, pain killers and vitamin tabs. Now I am on vibralon plus - 1/day (methyl cobalamin, alpha lipoic acid, benffaliamine, inositol, folic acid, chromium and selenium tablets) & gabazen (gabapentin tab) -1 tab at night. Kindly help me with your expert advice pl. (vijayan)

Hi Mr. lybrate-user. Are you a diabetic? Your symptoms are suggestive of sciatica which is due to compression of nerves in lower spine. It can be confirmed by a good clinical examination or a MRI of spine if needed. Till then, you should avoid bending forwards and doing activities by sitting on floor. You can also consult a good physiotherapist who can help you out.

I have severe leg pains. It feels like muscle pain. I have a huge hard mass that forms on the bottom of my thigh right above the knee cap whenever I sit. The lower the sit, the harder it is to get up. I am also experiencing the same muscle pain in the back of my lower calf, the side of my calf, and running down to my foot.

Restless Leg - 6 Ways It Can Be Managed!

Restless Leg - 6 Ways It Can Be Managed!

Restless leg syndrome is a condition where the nervous supply to the lower legs (and sometimes hands) is affected. The person has a constant urge to move the legs due to the tingly sensation or the pins and needles sensation and so this condition is called as restless legs syndrome (RLS). It is almost never a standalone condition and is often associated with other nervous system conditions.
It is a progressive condition and aggravates with time. The patient may experience episodes of this disease. Most people might experience this problem at night due to which a lot of patients complain of disturbed sleep and restlessness while sleeping.

While there is no permanent solution to this condition, there are various home remedies and techniques which can help control the condition. Read on to know more.

  1. Trigger agents: Some people are able to identify triggers like caffeine or chocolate which induce the condition. The first step would then be to avoid using these, especially before sleeping.
  2. Exercise: Any form of exercise, which gives a good workout for the leg muscles is recommended. This could range from a 30-minute brisk walk to stretches depending on the person’s overall health status. This is known to induce a good sleep, reduce muscle tension and relax the mood. Choose yoga, gym, cycling, or any form which suits your overall health and schedule.
  3. Massages:Hot or cold massages, often used alternately, can help in relaxing the muscles. This also helps in reducing tension and improving overall sleep. The ideal time for the massage is the evening so that RLS does not affect during nighttime.
  4. Diet: A diet rich in vitamins and minerals can prove to be helpful. This is because proper muscle and nerve function requires various minerals like zinc, potassium, calcium, sodium, etc. Diet rich in these helps in improving muscle and nerve function and thereby control RLS.
  5. Sleep pattern: Sound sleep practices like having an early dinner, a quiet room free of digital media, optimal temperature, and relaxing ambience helps in a better sleep. This has shown to reduce the incidence of RLS and evidence of sound sleep.
  6. Medications: RLS can also cause mild to moderate pain in the affected legs, and so pain killers can be used once in a while if the pain is not bearable. These should be used only rarely and continued use can lead to stomach ulcers and bleeding. The above mentioned nonmedical methods should be tried before trying medications. Anticonvulsants have been used to control RLS if pain killers alone are not adequate. In more severe cases, antiparkinson drugs are used with great success.
