Is the knee swollen?
have pain when moving your foot or leg muscles?

Customer reply replied 3 months ago
Slightly swollen, all muscles around knee and down lower leg are stiff and sore, calf muscle is sore when walking or moving
Doctor: Edgar Rubio Villegas, Doctor replied 3 months ago

Dear *****ient, you should not be alarmed, the symptoms of the leg are due to the inflammation that is generated in the knee and generates slight restriction in the circulation but not to compromise the limb so the leg feels cold.
In this case, the swelling in the knee should be improved and local ice should be applied every 8 hours.
I suggest starting with 400mg ibuprofen every 8 hours for 3 days. and a muscle relaxant like Cyclobenzaprine of 10mg every 12 hours for 5 days.
You should always keep your legs up and be resting.

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
