Good Morning Doctor My name is XXXXX XXXXXXX
and he has a pain from his groin area
we both have a running event tomorrow that we are participating in
but its difficult to run with the pain
wanted to chevk if there is anything else we can do?
I understand your concern.
any advise? do we need to take any muscle relaxant?
You can try oral pain killers for additional benefits. Try warm compresses (hot water bags) on the affected region.
yes we are using the hot water bag too
However if there is still nagging pain while walking or running tomorrow, I would suggest you to skip the event.
which oral pain killer should we take?
Running on sprained muscles can aggravate the problem.
ok. I understand
ch oral pain killer should we take?
which oral pain killar should be take?
Oral pain killers are not over the counter in India. Hence it is unethical to prescribe then on line either on chat or on email.
Please contact a doctor nearby to take a prescription.
Have you followed?
sure. thanks a lot for your advise doctor
yes, I understand. Thanks
Do you have any other query?
can I just visit a general physician?
Yes, any local doctor can write the prescription.
ok. thanks a lot. That;s it from me
The medicines and hot water bag will provide antiinflammatory benefits.
This will reduce pain and the inflammation.
sure. Thanks Doc
But my earnest suggestion is to skip the event if either of you don't feel better by tomorrow.
