I am Dr Mazumdar
Hi Dr Mazumdar this is XXXXXXX from Bangalore
I have a query about my back pain
pl go ahead
I can assist you to take a good decision here
Since one month I am getting frequent crams on my back. This happens over night
Does it pain even in the morning
I will be perfectly alright when I sleep but moring when i get up ill have the crams
Yes it does pain in the morning some times over the day ill get alright but some times i will have the pain for days
What is your age?
Does anyone else in the family has this problem?
few days back i had this problem i consulted a ortho he prescribed me some muscle relaxants and I got well and now i have the same probelm again
was an Xray done?
I am 29yrs old and no one in my family have this problem. This problem has started recently say a month
no no Xray was done
You should get the Xray of the lower spine done
YOu can take the same relaxants
You should learn to work infront of computer
Sure will get an x-ray done
You should get up from the desk once every 15 minutes
more than that your muscles go into spasm and cause more pain
You need to take hot water showers twice a day
sure will do
it relaxes the muscles
You should keep a cushion support on the chair
You should not use laptop without work station
definitely not on bed, chair etc
YOu should learn to sit straight
Sure i shall follow this
Your spine may go into degenerative changes soon
I do yoga
and this condition is irreversible
but because of this pain I am not able to do it everyday
You can take calcium supplements
twice means one in the morning and one at night?
Can i continue to use mobizox which was prescribed ealier
Yes but sparingly
Ok Thanks a lot doctor
Let me know after a week after doing the exercise and sitting modifications
Will follow all your advise and get back to you if I need anything more :)
Thanks for being here
Bye for now
Thanks doc :)
