Hi Morales Sibarani,
Knee pain and swelling as you experience can have a variety of causes such as:
Knee injury (damage to cartilage or tendons) Sprains of knee ligaments Osteoarthritis (inflammation of joints and bones) Gout disease Rheumatoid arthritis Tendinitis (inflammation of the tendons) Bleeding or infection in the joints
To determine the right treatment for you, of course, you must first know the cause. We recommend that you see a doctor so that they can be examined further, either through a physical examination or supporting tests if deemed necessary (such as X-rays, blood tests or MRI). From the results of this examination, the doctor will be able to find out the underlying cause and determine the right treatment for you according to the basic condition.
Meanwhile, here are suggestions that can be done to reduce the onset of pain:
If the pain is bothersome, you can take pain relievers such as paracetamol. Rest the sore knee Avoid excessive leg activity, such as long standing, running or going up and down stairs. Cold or warm compresses can help reduce pain and swelling. -3 pillows so that the position of the feet is higher than the heart Lose weight when excessive
