Doctor :   continue for three weeks atleast befor uyou can find some change
User :   not possible everyday doctor as sometimes it rains, sometimes I do not wake up early etc
User :   i have done all that trial and error many times
Doctor :   ok you can try alternative therapies like hot fresh bath, sauna bath etc
User :   sauna bath o come on. hot fresh bath - I take it once in a while. i feel good
User :   tell me what is the problem and if there's a solution. why r u going round and round and not giving me precise answer
Doctor :   I cannot give a precise one as I cant examine you
User :   i told you that orthopedics already examined me - 2 of them. nothing unusually wrong and they gave me all generic suggestions as you are giving
Doctor :   and you said you have already consulted a ortho specialist
User :   and they said it is because of using computer and having problem with my sitting posture. you did not even mention that
User :   what kind of a doctor are you ? Ortho or general ?
Doctor :   I am general practitioner
User :   do you think it can be Karpel tunnel. or is it something else. I am sure it is not gout or arthritis as doctors did physically examine me
Doctor :   carpal tunnel is diagnosed only by physical examination
Doctor :   but yu dont have tingling and numbness around your wrist and fingers
User :   no tingling. just stiffness
User :   i dont know if this is due to computer or sitting whole day or because my weight has increased 5-8 kgs in last 2 mionths
Doctor :   ok
Doctor :   the carpal tunnel could be diagnosed by a ortho
Doctor :   he would have diagnosed it by now
Doctor :   so belive it not
User :   ok. so a computer injury is not always this syndrome ?
User :   I also feel that rotating my neck tofeel better
Doctor :   exactly
Doctor :   so in this case please consult and physio therapist
User :   ok- so you believe that i do not need any medicine ?
