Knee Pain After Sitting For Too Long?
I want to ask, I have been sitting cross-legged for almost 9 hours for 3 consecutive days, on the second day I feel my knees / my knees feel hot during the night. why is that?
Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
The habit of sitting cross-legged for too long can make blood flow to and from the lower limbs not smooth. The impact, indeed often appears a variety of sensational disorders, such as cramps, heat, pain, tingling, numbness, and so on. If there are no other aggravating illnesses, this complaint will usually improve automatically after your legs are straightened back, or compressed warm.
However, if your complaint recurs very often, lasts a long time even though the leg has been straightened, it is also necessary to think about the possibility of disease, for example:
Neurological disorders, such as diabetes, post-herpetic neuralgia, multiple sclerosis, neurotropic vitamin or mineral deficiency
Vascular disorders, such as due to varicose veins, peripheral arterial disease, deep vein thrombosis
Metabolic disorders, such as atheroclesosis, hypercholesterolemia, dehydration
Joint, muscle, bone, and supporting tissue disorders, such as rheumatoid arthritis, osteoarthritis, fibromyalgia, tendonitis
Others, such as psychosomatic disorders, post-injury, viral or bacterial infections, and so on
You should check yourself directly to the doctor or neurologist so you can find out the cause of your complaint, whether related to an illness, or not. Further tests, such as x-rays, CT scans, ultrasound, laboratories, etc. may also be recommended by your doctor.
Here are our initial suggestions:
Compress hot feet and cramps with warm water, don't massage or massage carelessly
Apply a pain reliever if necessary (containing paracetamol for example)
Expand to do stretching exercises, such as swimming or yoga
Don't stand, walk, or run for too long
At rest, raise your legs, don't wear tight pants
Expand to eat foods rich in B vitamins, calcium, potassium, and magnesium
Do not smoke
