General Surgeon 's  Response
Hello,

As the pain follows occupation and work, perhaps they are related to your occasion and not from a serious organic complaint.

However, without a physical examination and routine investigations, the cause and its treatment cannot be documented.

I would recommend that you visit an orthopedic surgeon or physiotherapist for detailed evaluation when you are in pain. In the meantime, I advice you to follow proper ergonomics at work.

Take frequent breaks during work and practice mild to moderate exercise every day. You can also take pain medicines occasionally to ease of severe aches.

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

Take care

Regards,
Dr Ivan R. Rommstein, General Surgeon
