Expert:  khagihara replied 6 months ago.

You should take anti-pain medication and take a rest. You should do station bike or swimming instead of walking. They are less impact to the knees.

i read that its not good to take the antiflamotory pill with cipro..i have a uti and on cipro also.why does it say that..
Expert:  khagihara replied 6 months ago.

Nonsteroidal Anti-Inflammatory Agents (pain medication) may increase the serum concentration of Quinolone Antibiotics (cipro). That means cipro works well. You may take them together. It is said that it may enhance the neuroexcitatory and/or seizure-potentiating effect of Quinolone Antibiotics. If you don't have brain problem or seizure problem, you don't need to worry about the interaction.

Both heat and cold can relieve pain in your joint. Heat also relieves stiffness, and cold can relieve muscle spasms and pain. Use cream such as aspirin-like compounds, that are absorbed into your skin.
