Greenish Red Streaks Appear If You Sit Too Long?
Hello, I am 24 years old, weight 64 kg and height 159 cm. lately the folds of my legs have been very painful. I find it difficult to stand up after sitting on the floor for too long. people say I am now fat. one month ago my knee hurt so much that I couldn’t stand up after a long sitting on the floor, so I went on a diet and it worked. my knee doesn’t hurt anymore. however, lately it actually hurts the folds of my legs. after I checked, it turned out that there were red and green streaks protruding from the folds of the legs. my daily activities are mostly on the floor. every day I can sit on the floor 30 minutes-1 hour cross-legged because I teach the children to read the Koran. I have also tried to do 30 minutes of gymnastics every day, but with no success. do I need to be on a more strict diet? some say I have gout or rheumatism, is that true? thank you doctor
