Having tendon rupture in leg. Shows up only during jogging. Suggest the medication? - Online Doctor Chats
i have got this issue in my leg
seems like a tendon rupture
has been since past two years but shows up only while jogging/running or steep roads
like a trigger if i increase pace
Are you on any medication?
dint consult since it did not trouble me
but now that i want to jog it has become a concern since i cannot jog more than 10 mins
Let me assure you that it cannot be a tendon tear.
Because, if there is a torn tendon, you will not be able to walk.
then what can that be ? because that triggers only while i go hard on my right leg
It might be just some twisting and untwisting of tendons, which might be causing an issue.
To make sure of this, you will need to get it examined.
Once a doctor sees and examines it, you can be completely confident about what the underlying problem is.
Then appropriate measure can be taken.
do i go for a trial and error like wraping a crape band for 2 hrs or so everyday?
till i get it examined
For the time being you can use small crepe bandges while you go for a run or jogging.
You need not wear it for long time.
ok another thing that was in my mind
Sure, please proceed.
since the type of job in this corporate sector is more of sitting with laptop can you suggest few recommendations to follow to avoid harm
These all can be prevented by following a few rules.
- Always keep your screen at medium brightness.
- The screen should be slightly lower than the ey level.
- Look away from the screen every 20 minutes, for 20 seconds, by looking at a distance of 20 feet or more.
- Make a conscious effort to blink your eyes repeatedly every few seconds.
- Keep your back straight.
- Keep your foot flat on the ground.
- Your elbow should be at the level or slightly higher than the keyboard level.
- Take a break every 1 hour. Walk away from your seat for 5 minutes.
These minor steps can bring a lot of relief from all the issues stated above.
ok....thanks doc. i am afraid this 10 hr sitting work might get me fat although i avoid junk food as much as i can
It can. Only way is to be active. Make sure you work out at least 45 mins every day.
You can also do small activities such as using stair case instead of lift.
A short walk after lunch or dinner etc.
The key to maintain body weight is to utilize the calories you take in.
apart for jogging running (which I am unable to do for now) are there ways of workout to curb body fat?
Swimming would be a good option
i am hydrophobic
so couldnt learn swimming
Ok thanks anyways, will try to apply your suggestions as soon as possible
Hope this was helpful.
Is there anything else I can help you with?
nothing for now. will get back if anything required
Thanks for consulting me.
or suggestions needed
Have a Nice evening!!
Bye for now.
