How can severe pain in the hip, back, knee, shin and ankle along with walking difficulty be treated?
please follow the advice and observe how he stays...
Welcome to HealthcareMagic,
I've gone through your query and understand your concerns for your husband,
First of all, don't let him exert at all, and just sit/lie down for the time being... Instead of only Ibuprofen, you may give him analgesics PARACETAMOL (Tylenol) 650mg three times daily and Ibuprofen 400mg twice daily in between (after some food) for the next 2-3 days and observe how he stays...Painkillers may cause some hyperacidity/gastric irritation, to prevent this, he can also take an antacid (eg. Omeprazole or Prilosec 20mg once daily for the time being)...
Also, continue alternate hot-cold compression for a quick relief, additionally you can also apply Diclofenac Spray over the affected region twice to thrice daily (just apply gently and do not massage)...
This should take care of the pain for the time being.. If despite this, pain doesn't relief, then you can visit the nearest ER for a prompt check-up and stronger pain-killers (please note that muscle-relaxants are strictly prescription based medications and beyond the scope of the online medical forum). However, with the above-mentioned measures, I'd expect the pain to relieve within a while.
If it still doesn't improve then a quick visit to the nearest ER will facilitate with the stronger analgesics.
Let me know if I can assist you further...
