Doctor, everyday I feel as if my shoulders are heavy and I cannot lift my arms. If I force myself to lift them, the pain radiates to the neck. What disease is this, Doc?
Doctor, how do I treat a sudden cramp on the lower back? Sometimes it happens when I stand or sit. To relieve myself, I have to lie down.
Doctor, I feel pain on the back of my knee. Some people said it is because I sit too much. How can this be treated, Doctor?
I feel stabbing pain in my spine when I sit for too long. I am 35 and drive everyday and sit to work in front of the computer for hours. Is this a common condition for my age? How to treat this and what lifestyle improvements should I make if I want to stay physically fit for a long time?
I am 58 years old. I want to ask about joint pain in the knee – based on my x-ray results, on my right knee there are growing bulges between the knee bones, which makes it difficult for me to bend or straighten my knee. It’s also difficult for me to walk, and I cannot stand for long. It feels like the leg muscles are being pulled and there is pain. I’ve taken a variety of drugs – these are some of the medicines that my doctor prescribed: methylperdnisolone, diclofenac sodium, paracetamol, Alpentin 100mg, hi bone, GCM. It’s been more than 2 months since I took the drugs above but my condition did not improve. Instead, the pain is now attacking my left knee. What is the solution without surgery? Thank you.
Doctor, thank you for responding to my question. I have a history of scoliosis & HNP in L 4 & 5. It has been more than 5 years. I have checked with several bone doctors, some are suggesting surgery & some say it's not severe. In the last year I complained more intensely. The last time I went to the orthopedist was about half a year ago - I was given an injection in the pelvis & for a few months I was free from pain. My complaint is that if I am squatting, my knee hurts & in just minutes, the spine feels like it’s going to break - it hurts so much. If I bend my knees and then stand straight, they become so stiff and sore. According to the injecting doctor, my complaint is not about my joints but my fingers are numb & stiff. I also can't stand sitting or standing for long. The back of the waist hurts. I have gout complaints. According to the doctor it can also be a cause. I'm confused now, where should I focus - bones, joints, gout? Thank you
Good afternoon doctor. Lately, why do I feel pain on my elbow although there are no specific causes? I even have problems moving my arm. Please give me your advice doctor.
Doctor, I have pain on the back of my shoulder. Last year, I experienced a collision in that area, but at that time I didn't feel pain nor was it swollen. Do you think it is related to my previous accident?
Good evening, Doctor. I am 61 years old. My left knee has been aching and swollen for more than 1 month. The pain is relieved slightly if I take voltaren, but thereafter, it persists, and hurts more if I carry something heavy or stand for too long. What problem do I have in my knee and what is the proper medication for this condition? Thank you
