Hello Jhody,

Thank you for the question.

Pain (aching) in the knee, which is heavy when cold air can be part of claudication. This condition usually occurs in patients with peripheral arterial disease, a condition in which blood flow to the lower limbs is reduced due to narrowing of the arteries from the heart by atherosclerosis, vasculitis, or injuries to the lower limbs. Not only pain, peripheral arterial disease can also make the lower limbs feel cold, pale or bluish, appear old wounds that heal, blacken, and even rot. Often, complaints due to peripheral arterial disease do worsen when exposed to cold air and are exhausted from heavy physical activity.

In addition to peripheral arterial disease, various other conditions can also cause pain in the knee as you experience it, such as osteoarthritis, tendonitis, rheumatoid arthritis, cellulitis, fibromyalgia, deep vein thrombosis, peripheral neuropathy, viral or bacterial infections, psychological disorders, and so on.

To be clear, you should check your condition directly to the doctor or neurologist. Neurological examination, blood tests, ultrasound, angiography, and so on may be doctors will recommend to you before giving appropriate treatment.

For now, you can first overcome the pain that appears on your knee with a compress of warm water, do not obey your knee carelessly, multiply rest, avoid using tight pants and high heels, do not smoke, maintain ideal body weight, and regularly exercise every day .

Hope this helps ...
