Muscle is one of the organs of the body that uses a lot of oxygen when used. Therefore, when we exercise or are active, it is usually accompanied by an increase in the frequency of breathing and an increase in heart rate (pulse), to provide adequate amounts of oxygen to the muscle. When the muscles are used excessively, the speed of oxygen supply is not able to compensate for the use of oxygen, so it can cause a buildup of lactic acid (metabolic waste) which makes muscle aches and cramps (due to failure of muscle relaxation, causing continuous contractions).
If you have just been doing strenuous exercise that focuses on your leg muscles, or have just done certain activities that you rarely do, then naturally there is pain or aches in the muscles. This is called muscle pain (or myalgia), which normally improves on its own with adequate muscle rest for less than a week. In the meantime, things you can do are:
Resting muscles in the area, by not doing too much activity Consumption of lots of water (at least 2 L a day) Massage or massage can help expedite blood vessels and speed up the process of recycling lactic acid, it is advisable to massage towards the heart (bottom to top) If the pain is very disturbing rest you can be helped with pain medications that have the green logo and are sold freely in pharmacies. Use in accordance with the rules of use listed. On the other hand, varicose veins are enlarged veins that lead to the heart, and often occur in the legs, because they require relatively greater pressure to fight gravity back to the heart (chest). In varicose veins, there is damage to the valve system so that blood that should be pushed back to the heart quickly becomes behind in the venous system and causes blood vessels to dilate. Symptoms that can appear are such as pain and heat in the varicose area, veins clearly visible, purplish in color, and skin discoloration around varicose veins, swelling, and leg cramps especially at night. In addition, enlarged blood vessels often appear protruding from the skin.
If your pain does not decrease after being rested for a week, or even worse, do not hesitate to consult a doctor. So, hopefully you can help.
