Brief Answer: Pain killer like ibuprofen will help. Detailed Answer: Hello, Thanks for posting your query. The pain like you have described seems to be a musculoskeletal pain due to an inflammation or a muscle spasm. Most of the times such pains can be relieved by taking rest and mild pain killers like ibuprofen. Doing a hot fomentation in the painful area will also help. In case the pain is persistent for more than 3 days then you may get some muscle relaxants prescribed from your physician. The pain in the foot with an electric shock like feeling can be due to a vitamin B 12 deficiency or a mild nerve root compression at the level of lumbar spine. Taking proper supplements will be helpful. I hope this answers your query. In case you have additional questions or doubts, you can forward them to me, and I shall be glad to help you out. Wishing you good health. Regards. Dr. Praveen Tayal.

Hey there, I was just bathing my 4month daughter and as I was getting he out I slipped on the wet floor, causing her to go under for a moment and also unfortunately causing her to bump her head on the bath also. She has a red bump on her head, and is a little lethargic (although she is due to go to sleep as well) Should I keep her awake? or can she go to sleep while I monitor her closely? I have also given her panadol to help with the pain she may be feeling after the bump.

I accidentally gave my 8 month old ibuprofen two hours early. She is 17 lbs and I gave her 1.25 ml only four hours a part instead of 6. She has an ear infection and RSV and I thought I was giving her Tylenol the second time but instead gave her two doses of ibprofen. She fell asleep. Should I be worried?
