Hello, it’s been about one month of leg pain alternately, sometimes in the knee sometimes in the sole of the foot, subsides to the right then changes to the left. Pain like being stabbed, cramping, difficult to bend and difficult to walk. How to deal with conditions like this? Thank you

Hi Marwa,


The onset of pain in the legs and feet that occur alternately can be caused by the following conditions:

Pain related to physical injury or due to heavy physical activity
Disorders of the muscles or ligaments (connective tissue), for example sprained
Nerve inflammation (neuritis)
Joint inflammation such as gout or rheumatoid arthritis
Spinal disorders

Handling that can be done in these conditions is as follows:

Get enough rest, do a healthy lifestyle
Take over-the-counter painkillers to help reduce pain, use medications as recommended and only when needed
Avoiding various conditions that can trigger complaints
Take vitamin B6 or B12 to help maintain nerve health
Compress the part that is complained with cold water (if there is swelling) or warm water (if there is no swelling / inflammation)

If after handling the above complaints you are still settled then you should immediately consult a doctor to ascertain the cause of the complaint and get treatment in accordance with the underlying conditions. Your doctor will ask for a history of complaints, perform physical examinations or supporting examinations such as reflex examination, x-rays or joint fluid.


If the complaint is caused by a muscle or joint disorder, the doctor can prescribe NSAID and anti-inflammatory drugs if necessary. If the complaint is caused by joint disorders such as gout arthritis, the doctor can prescribe NSAID class of pain medications and medications to reduce your uric acid levels.
