Patient's Query

Hi doctor,

I am an 18-year-old male. My left shoulder has been having a tingling sensation, which starts when I use the laptop for typing or playing games. I have been having this symptom for more than half a year, this tingling sensation starts when I am just sitting down. It does not hurt, but it is very annoying especially when I am doing my assignments. I had a knee injury when I fell on my right knee during a sports competition. I have not found the reason and solution to the pain but have tried physiotherapy. Currently, my knee aches when the activity is too intense or while doing intense workouts.

Hi,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

This tingling pain over the shoulder can be due to cervical spine nerve irritation or nowadays it is a new symptom affecting many young people using electrical gadgets. The knee pain can be an injury to ligaments or just a condition. I suggest you try doing the following. Ice is useful for the control of pain and swelling. It can be applied to the knee for 15 to 20 minutes as often as every two to four hours. The swollen knee should be elevated above the level of the heart while icing. Activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily. If the knee is swollen or sore, the following positions and activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve. Squatting, kneeling, twisting, pivoting, jogging, aerobics, dancing, and playing sports. I suggest you try taking the following medicines. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her, and start taking the medicines after their consent.

Tablet Pregabalin 75 mg, once daily at night before food for 10 days.

Tablet Etoricoxib 60 mg, twice daily after food for 10 days.

Tablet Rabeprazole 20 mg, twice daily before food for 10 days.

Tablet Shelcal (Calcium carbonate) 500 mg, once in the morning for 30 days.

Tablet Vitamin D (60K), once daily for 10 days, then once a month for 11 months.

Take these tablets only if you are not allergic to them. Do not take these tablets if you are a known case of bronchial asthma. Kindly give more history about the knee pain. This professional advice provided by me stands subject to the actual examination of the report or image and is based entirely on inputs provided to me. It should be correlated with clinical findings.

Thank you.
