User :   hello doctor sir,
i am going for a pathaiyathra (walk) to tirupathi from chennai (ie around 200 kms). It use to take four days to reach the destination.we use to walk 40-50 kms a day.We use to take rest(ie sleep) in the afternoon and in the night and sit for a while after one hour of walk,we use to cover 4 kms per hour. During the journey we use to suffer a lot of pain in the heels,calves,thighs,knees,feet,elbow,pelvis also backpain, jointpain, shoulder pain. we used lots of gel and some tablets with no use it will just give us relief for that night and after we woke up the pain starts again and our legs position will change too.. so we all will be thankful if you suggest any gels,pain balms,energy tablets and pain killers.. also any healthy food..
