Hello. Thank you for asking HealthReplies.com.
I'll first try to calculate your body mass index (BMI) or body mass index (BMI). Body mass index is a calculation based on height and weight to assess the degree of a person's body weight whether classified as thin, ideal, overweight or obese (overweight). BMI <18.5 is classified as underweight, BMI 18.5-24.9 is ideal (normal), BMI 25.0-29.9 is considered overweight and a BMI of 30 or more is classified as obese (overweight). From the calculation of your weight and height you get a BMI of 75 kg / (1.58 x 1.58) = 30.0. In other words, you are classified as obese or overweight. A person with a high BMI (obesity) has a higher risk of various diseases such as osteoarthritis, heart disease, hypertension, cancer and type II diabetes mellitus. For this reason, maintaining body weight in ideal conditions (normal) is very important in order to reduce the risk of various diseases due to obesity.
The ankles that feel like they are tied, it is difficult to stand up from a sitting position on the floor and pain in the knees or buttocks or buttocks feels painful from sitting too long can be caused by osteoarthritis. Osteoarthritis is the most common arthritis disease and usually affects the knee, hip and spine joints most often. From the information you provide, it is possible for you to experience osteoarthritis of the knee joint. In this condition, the cartilage in the knee joint breaks down slowly, causing total damage to the cartilage that covers both ends of the joint over time. This causes severe pain in the knee joint due to friction between the two ends of the joint that is damaged by cartilage. In addition to causing pain, joints become stiff and difficult to move. Some of the risk factors for osteoarthritis include obesity, female sex more often, old age, genetic factors and injury to joints. Apart from osteoarthritis, your complaints can also be caused by the following factors:
Claudication / peripheral artery disease. It is a condition of blockage of blood flow to the legs due to narrowing of the arteries caused by cholesterol deposits on the artery walls. This condition causes pain and discomfort in the legs, thighs, calves or buttocks. Apart from causing pain, claudication can also cause cramps at night. Varicose veins, DVT (deep vein thrombosis) Trauma / injury to the knee Joint dislocation You should go to your doctor directly for a physical examination to evaluate whether there are accompanying symptoms such as swelling, redness, warmth, tenderness in the knee joint and other investigations. such as X-rays, blood tests, and MRI to lead to a more definite diagnosis.
Treatments that can be done to reduce osteoarthritis symptoms such as:
Lose weight Pain relievers such as paracetamol or mefenamic acid and non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs Mild exercise Physiotherapy Using braces to reduce pain Hope this information will be of use to you. Best regards, Dr. Shirly
