Have diabetes, blood pressure. Pain in neck and upper back. Taken steam. Cure? - Online Doctor Chats
very good afternoon
i have a query on behalf of my grand mother back at my residence
her details are : age : 81, sex : female
but she takes diabetes and bp medicines everyday...very regularly
we stay in Pune city
Problem : over the last 2-3 days, she is complaining about some pain in her neck area, upper back near the spinal cord muscles
sorry to hear that
she took some steam but the pain is not lowering
She probably has a cervical spondylosis
when we press these body-parts she feels good
It should be age related osteoarthritis
ya may be... but she also complains about choked sinuses and forehead area
That is probably because of sinusitis
now, is there any cure for it ?
so anything can be done ?
The age related osteoarthritis, she should take calcium supplements
For the sinusitis, she has to continue to do steam inhalation
ok...can you please name some supplements ?
one tablet a day after food
we have tried taking steam using karvol plus, but according to her, that increases the chokage
Then she can do steam inhalation with plain water
or try eucalyptus oil
what about the pain near medulla oblongata
on back of her neck
That is also due to her senility
any medicine fr it ?
Shelcal would take care of this problem too
ok... i will note it down
will it be available at all medical stores?
Basically, her problems is due to the advancing age
Try this oil
It is very effective in such kind of pains
Along with calcium
With adequate rest, she should be fine
i will buy them today and let you know by tomorrow
do these medicines need prescription ?
It is available over the counter
how much would it cost, any idea madam ?
It is easy for you to purhase
shelcal should be within 100 rupees
And Myovedic around 50 rupees
ok...thank you very much Dr. XXXXXX
thanks for your time and consultation
Thank you too
Pleasure is mine
