Hi,

Thanks for your query.

I read your query and I understand your concerns.

Following is my reply:

1) Since you do-not have hypertension, there is no need to worry of stroke though you have a family history.

2) The pain in spine could be due to excessive work or physical exertion recently. Take a pain killer medicine available over the counter for three days. If it does not reduce you might need examination by an orthopedician.

3) This might be related to PTSD and depression as you might feel samll pain to be larger. Hence please stop worrying. You are physically fit woman at 58 years.

I hope I answered your query.

Regards,
Dr. Mahesh Koregol
