Your Knee Feels Cold When You Have A Cold?
The right knee feels cold and now I have a cold, why? Is there a relationship with body discomfort?
Thank you for the question.
Flu or influenza (different from the common cold cough) caused by a virus can cause symptoms such as fever, runny nose, nasal congestion, and headaches, as well as pain in the body and joints including the knee joint. This is caused when a virus attacks the body, the body's immune system will respond by attacking the virus through white blood cells that will produce certain substances such as interleukins and cytokines. Interleukin, especially interleukin-6 which works to ward off influenza viruses, can have effects such as pain in the body and joints, so flu sufferers also usually feel pain in the body and joints.
Basically, this flu can be overcome by resting at home without special treatment. You can rest at home, take colds and heat relievers such as paracetamol, keep washing your hands routinely and correctly, and meet the nutritional and fluid needs of at least 2-3 liters per day. If the flu occurs more than two weeks without any improvement, accompanied by shortness of breath, you should visit a doctor.
Hopefully this information can help and hopefully get well soon.
