Hello Mr. XXXXXXX

Thanks for writing to us.

The following tests need to be done:

a. Fasting lipid profile

b. Fasting sugar level

c. Post prandial blood sugar ( to be given 2 hours after your drink 75 g of glucose (=15 tsp of Glucon D)

d. ECG

e. Blood pressure, height and weight need to be measured

f. Liver function test (if you consume alcohol) and spirometry (if you have been smoking)



This can be done at Apollo Labs/ Manipal Cure and Care/ SRL Ranbaxy/Thyrocare centre near you.

About the repetitive stress injuries, you would need to use a wrist band and a elbow band for support. Also, maintaining the right posture is extremely important. The following link should give you an idea about the right posture to maintain while working

If there is any tingling/abnormal sensation in the hand or in the forearm or any kind of weakness, please see an orthopedic surgeon. A formal assessment would be required.

Let me know if you have any more questions.

Yes please. I've been for medical checkups and the dr's don"t seem to find what's wrong with me. I've been experiencing a chronic pain right in the middle between my ribs for years. It is not affected at all by anything I eat or don't eat. It is however effected by stress and emotional pain or stress. Then it's worse. I wake up feeling as if someone wrapped my heart very tightly in solution tape. This pain is causing depression..or the other way around?

The soles of my feet feel raw and pain shoots thru end of toes which feels like knives. I cannot sleep at night from shooting pains in both feet and the hot then cold temperature changes throughout the night are driving me insane. However,I have lots of pain during the day as well. I no longer am able to do my chores at home or go shopping as the pain becomes unbearable. I have had to stop exercising as the pain is too great, I have had several blood tests and I do not have diabetes according to these tests and others. I do have low vitamin d . At times my feet and toes feel numb and also my right arm . None of my current doctors know how to treat my problem. I am scheduled to see a foot doctor the middle of April. I have been extremely miserable of late with the pain and I am anxious to see what foot doctor will advise. What are your thoughts on my painful feet and soles?

evening, I have been having sharp pains in my right hand, all fingers that awakens me thru the night, the only releif I have found is to dangle my arm over the side of the bed, this stops it from stabbing only, still aches... both hands frequently fall asleep, and sporadic shooting pains in left hand as well. The right hand tho was only the pinky and ring finger until a week ago, now its all fingers and thumb .
