Body pain, leg pain. Relief when using hot water with salt. Reason?

My mother aged 56 has pain all over her body. Body pain happens whenever she walks for long time, or keeps sitting or even when she is lying in bed for a long time. Whenever she is in a particular position for a long time pain occurs in her legs or calf , and waist . Also in spine . If she uses hot water with salt then she gets relief. It has been happening past 22 years and did not get a proper relieve. I would like to know why it may happen .. what should be further action.

It seems that your mother might be having Osteoporosis and Osteomalacia giving rise to all problems.
This condition might be aggravated due to menopause.
Give high dose of Calcium, vitamin A and D supplements.
Advise her slow walking exercise.
Ok and take care.

Hi, thanks for writing to HCM.

As your mother's symptoms have been present for more than 2 decades, she needs a thorough evaluation and clinical examination to define the underlying cause.

In the meantime, encourage her to take fresh fruit juices (which contains antioxidants), Green leafy vegetables, Calcium rich diet and maintain levels of physical activity.

Consult your treating physician for a detailed evaluation and further management.

Hope this information helps. Good day

Hi and welcome to HCM
Pain all over body and in spine could be due to osteoporosis . It is common in old age especially post-menopausal women. I suggest you to get your mother evaluated by an orthopaedician. After diagnosis her he/she may start anti osteoporotic treatment. I advice her to take diet rich in calcium and vit D3.
Hope this will helps you. Take care.
