Medication For Muscle Pain In Calf Legs?
hello, my mother is 52 years old, muscle aches in the calf like running out of a marathon, what medication can be recommended for my mother? because if I stop taking pain relievers, the pain returns again
Hello, thanks for the question.
Muscle pain after exercising is called dengandelayed onset muscle soreness (DOMS). This muscle pain can occur within 24-48 hours after a fairly heavy exercise, such as marathon or jogging, aerobics, or lifting weights. Muscle pain after exercise normally does occur, especially if we rarely exercise and immediately exercise with a high enough intensity. This pain is caused by a buildup of lactic acid in the muscles, or it could be due to damage to the connective tissue and muscles, minor injury to the muscles, or because of inflammation in the muscles. These complaints will generally improve on their own within a few days. Some things you can do to reduce complaints between others:
Massage or gently massage the area that is painful
Cool compresses for 10-15 minutes
Take pain medications
Consumption of pain medications should be given on a doctor's prescription. Because if used continuously and not according to the rules, can cause side effects, especially on the stomach. Therefore, if the complaint does not improve after a few days or gets worse, or the pain is accompanied by a decrease in the sense of taste, numbness, or disturbance of moving the limbs, you should not delay to see a doctor. The doctor will conduct a thorough examination and additional examinations if needed. Handling is tailored to the condition and severity of the disease. To avoid muscle pain, you should warm up before exercising, do regular exercise, and eat healthy and nutritious foods, especially foods high in protein such as eggs, meat, tempeh, tofu, milk, cheese, and so forth.
Thus, hopefully it helps.
