Hello,

As per your clinical history is concerned, please follow like this -

1) Do a clinical examination by your family doctor and if tendinitis confirmed, then you can discuss [pain killers, steroids]

2) Do consult with your physiotherapist for a specific exercise plan.

Do follow lifestyle modifications like this-

1) Try to avoid activities that place excessive stress on your tendons, especially for prolonged periods. If you notice pain during a particular exercise, stop and rest. If one exercise or activity causes you a particular, persistent pain, try something else.

2) Try to improve your technique. If your technique in an activity or exercise is flawed, you could be setting yourself up for problems with your tendons. Consider taking lessons or getting professional instructions when starting a new sport or using exercise equipment.

3) Take time after exercise to stretch in order to maximize the range of motion of your joints. It can help to minimize repetitive trauma on tight tissues. The best time to stretch is after exercise when your muscles are warmed up.

4) If possible, get an assessment of your workspace and adjust your chair, keyboard, and desktop as recommended for your height, arm length, and usual tasks. It will help protect all your joints and tendons from excessive stress.

For a migraine discuss with your doctor about [Amitriptyline] and follow lifestyle modifications like this-

1) Try to avoid triggers. If certain foods or odors seem to have triggered your migraines in the past, avoid them.

2) Try to reduce your caffeine and alcohol intake and avoid tobacco.

3) Make a daily routine with regular sleep patterns and regular meals. In addition, try to control stress.

4) Do exercise regularly. Regular aerobic exercise reduces tension and can help prevent migraines. If your doctor agrees, choose any aerobic exercise you enjoy, including walking, swimming, and cycling.

5) Try to reduce the effects of estrogen. These medications include birth control pills and hormone replacement therapy. Talk with your doctor about the appropriate alternatives or dosages for you.



Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
