Leg Pain When You Want To Stand Or Sit?
Let me introduce my name. Alya, I am 25 years old, I want to ask, about 2 weeks, my leg joints ache if I want to stand up or sit down, then this week my ankles and ankles are swollen, I have checked with the Puskesmas and got ibuprofen and calcium lactate but there is no change in the swelling. Then I went to the pharmacy and was advised to take diclofenac sodium 50 mg twice a day, after taking diclofenac, my swelling decreased but in the last 2 days the swollen parts became red. What is the cause of the swelling of my feet and why is it turning red? And how to overcome the swelling? Thank you
Swelling in the joints with pain can be caused by the following conditions:
Physical injuries such as sprains / sprains or due to physical trauma Arthritis of the gout (gout arthritis) Infection of the skin or joints Because you have treated a doctor and the complaint is still persistent then you should discuss this with the doctor who treats you to get further treatment related to complaints You. You can also ask other doctors for your complaints, I suggest that you consult with a specialist in internal medicine to get optimal treatment.
The further tests that can be recommended by doctors are blood tests, joint fluid analysis, ultrasound or x-rays. If the complaint is indeed caused by arthritis of the uric acid, the doctor can prescribe NSAID-class anti-inflammatory drugs or corticosteroid-class anti-inflammatory drugs and cholesterol-lowering drugs such as allopurinol. If the complaint is caused by an infection, the doctor can prescribe an appropriate antibiotic to treat the condition.
The following recommendations for you:
Avoid heavy physical activity Rest the area that feels pain Compress with ice wrapped in a towel to reduce inflammation, do not compress the part that has an open wound Perform treatment and control according to your doctor's advice Hopefully useful,
