Hello doc its been seven days i have started doing exercise

Patient

Q: Hello doc..
its been seven days i have started doing exercise and now my knees and ankle are swollen.. I have started applying volini spray.. Need your suggestion should i continue with volini or icing??? And when should i start my exercise again??

Doctor

A:   Hello,
Thank you for your query at AskTheDoctor.com

I understand your concern.
The swelling of knees and ankles is not a common phenomena after exercise.
So, I will advise you to rest at least for a week and also take Advil twice daily after food to get relief from the inflammation.
If it does not settle down, get it examined by your physician.

Hope this was helpful,
Regards
