Dear Moi In all honesty I had to check what " pulse massagers " were before I could give you an answer - but having looked them up, I realise that these are basically TENS machines. TENS ( transcutaneous electrical nerve stimulation ) basically stimulates nerves so that they...

Dear Jingwen Thank you for your question - it is certainly a common problem that I see in the clinical setting, particularly amongst younger patients. Broadly speaking, pain in the wrist can be from a structural or functional issue. When I mean " structural" , this can be from the bones, joi...

Dear gni Thank you for your question and it’s certainly interesting from a physiological perspective. The “normal” heart rate ranges from 60-100bpm in the average person, it in those who are physically active and very fit it can go as low as 40-50bpm. An e...

Dear Hui Ya, Thanks for the D2D. I am sorry to hear about your back pain. There can be many causes of back pain, from discs and nerves, to joints and bones in the back. Sometimes it can be difficult to differentiate between one problem and another based on one symptom alone...

Dear Zane, Thanks for the D2D. It sounds like you are having a challenging time with your back symptoms and certainly walking should be an easy task that does not lead to aching. There can be many different reasons for back pain and it maybe worthwhile getting your b...

Dear Chen Si, Thanks for the D2D. It's an interesting one! Constipation has an interesting relationship with back pain as acute back pain, with prolapse of an intervertebral disc and compression of nerves can lead to an alteration in bowel habits, which includes constipatio...

Dear Suo Xin, Thanks for the D2D. This is very important as often people are diagnosed with muscular back pain and turn out to have a disc problem and vice versa. The reason is that is can be very difficult to differentiate the different causes of back pain as there ...

Hi Hckwek, Thank you for your question. Unfortunately I can only see half the report, and hence it is difficult to advise you fully without all the information. As Dr Sean mentions, the two important symptoms following an ligament injury are pain and instability . ...

Dear Joce, Sounds like you are having quite notable pain! One questions springs to mind: WHY? Have you changed something in your activities ? Have you altered your footwear ? Have you changed your occupation ? As Dr Sean mentions, MIBS would be an option, but perhap...

Dear Cheryl, Continuing on from the answers from Dr Sean and Dr Henry, I just wanted to add that it might be worthwhile seeing a podiatrist - perhaps one with experience in sports such as yours! They will be able to customise the insoles for you and perhaps offload the bunion. C...
