Having pain in legs from last 2 weeks. Please help.

Having pain in legs from last 2 weeks. Please help.
What is the severity of pain? is the pain continuous or intermittent? is it pulsating? since pain is a complex phenomenon, there are many treatment options medications, therapies, and mind-body techniques. Apart from pain killers, there is evidence that certain dietary supplements and vitamins can help with certain types of pain. Fish oil is often used to reduce pain associated with swelling. A therapeutic diet complemented with few medications for pain management can also work wonders.

You Won't Need Knee Replacement (TKR) Anymore!

You Won't Need Knee Replacement (TKR) Anymore!
You won't need knee replacement (tkr) anymore!

New alternative to knee replacement

Osteoarthritis (oa) of the knee is a severe joint problem, that has become highly prevalent in india. It is a major cause of lack of mobility, particularly among women. Currently, total knee replacement (tkr) surgery is a common solution for oa knee. However, there are risks associated with it. Surgeries for knee oa often throw up mixed results. Sometimes, tkr leaves patients with unresolved pain and loss of function for long periods. Now, however, doctors in usa have come up with the bionicare knee system which works by sending therapeutic electrical currents to the joint with an un-loader brace, that reduces pain and improves overall health of the joint. This is the most thoroughly researched, clinically proven, non invasive, non-drug alternative for the treatment of the knee.

5 benefits of using this treatment:

1. Effective pain relief
2. Non surgical, non-invasive and non-drug treatment
3. No adverse effects
4. Decreases dependency on painkillers
5. Improves function and quality of life

My recommendation to patients who have chronic knee issues, knee injuries, knee pain etc (particularly if doctors have suggested you surgeries for the same), is to try this treatment instead.

I have more pain in my legs. Many times I have taken medicine but no solution. Please suggest.
What kind of pain you feel ex.sharp shooting , and is it associated with the timing of day or with some work, it might be because of low calcium level, you need to focus on your diet and some streatching and strengthning of your leg and back muscles. For instant relief you can use hot pack to reduce pain.
