When I twist my body, bones in neck, back, arms make a lot of noise. From last one year my bone are making lot of sound. I generally ask my wife to stand and walk on my back and I feel comfort and when she was walking on my back lot of cracking sound came from my bone.I do have lag,neck and back pain. I frequently use MOOV spry and mustard oil on my leg. I think my leg pain is due to isnophilia and that is why I applied mustard oil on my leg. Major thing is allopathic medicine do not suite me. If i fall sick I always try cure my self using home made or natural medicine and it works , suppose if I do have cough then i will take ginger+honey . If i take any cough syrup then it won't work. The question what I should do so that i can reduce the pain over leg,back and neck ?
