Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Thanks for posting your query,

I have read through your query,

From the description you have provided, your symptoms seems to be pertaining to muscle spasm due to a bad posture.

I would suggest you to do the following:

- Take an analgesic along with an anti-spasmodic or a muscle relaxant. For this you may consider Tab. Lyser-D twice daily for 3 days or T. ZERODOL-P twice daily.

- Also take Cap. Pan-D once daily half an hour before food, so as to avoid any resultant gastritis.

- Apply warm compresses over the involved area.

- Avoid pillow while resting.

Hope this helps.

Please feel free to discuss further,

Regards

I have pain in my left upper arm. There is some pain in upper spine also. Seen doctors several times. They advised physiotherapy (Hot pack, IFT and exercise ) and muscle relaxant ointments and Etoshine MR tablets. Pain reduces a bit after physiotherapy for 3-4 weeks but again reappears. Need some advice.

Six months ago, I was dancing (I know it is isn t a sport, but my injury is close), and I was doing a full split while I slipped and split fully and too fast. Since then, on my left leg, I have been experiencing pain whenever I stretch . This pain is localised to one long line from my groin to mid-thigh, on the inner side of the leg. I would like to know if the injury is serious, what type of doctor I should consult, and if muscle relaxants (like Moov and Volini) will help, along with hot and cold foamentation and wrapping the injured area with a crepe bandage .
