Swollen Feet After A Sprain?
Hy doctor, congratulations, I sprained yesterday and my legs were swollen and my bones really hurt, but I drank ponstans, can I reduce the pain before
Good evening, thanks for asking at HealthReplies.com. Swollen feet due to sprains is actually a natural condition, because swelling is a response that is sure to occur when there is inflammation or infection in the body. For example, when there is a skin infection, insect bites, inflammation of the lymph nodes, it is very natural to be followed by swelling. But along with the improvement of the condition, this swelling will disappear without leaving a mark.
Regarding the drug you are asking about, ponstan has a generic content of mefenamic acid, which is a class of painkillers and anti-inflammatory drugs that are appropriate to be given in cases like yours. You just need to make sure you consume them according to the rules of use, and if you are a woman, make sure you are not pregnant.
Even though the type of medicine is right, but it should be understood that a doctor's examination is still needed, to ensure that you really only sprained and there are no fractures. The severity also needs to be examined for its severity, whether the form can heal by itself, or which may even require surgery. By seeing a doctor directly, there will be no conditions that are missed and you can feel calm because you will be monitored during the recovery period.
In the meantime, it's clear you have to limit physical activity that relies on legs such as walking, and instead avoids jumping and running until his condition improves. Increase consumption of foods and beverages that are high in protein, cold compresses on the swollen parts, raise them in a higher position than the body when lying down, and consult a doctor immediately. So, hopefully answering your question.
