I have osteo arthritis and knee problem. I was taking calcium with d3 and was told by doctor not to sit on the floor and everything was going fine for a year. But due to some reason I sat on floor for 2 hours. For something and now the back of my left knee is in pain for 7-10 days and is not taking my weight. What can I do so that I can continue doing my daily activities in a normal way. I am female 56 years of age. Thanks.

Sleep on a hard bed with soft bedding on it. Spring beds, folding beds or thick matress are harmful use no pillow under the head. Do hot fomantation. Paracetamol 250mg od & sos x 5days. Caldikind plus 1tab od x10. Do neck, back, knee & general exercises. It may have to be further investigated. You will need other supportive medicines also. Make sure you are not allergic to any of the medicines you are going to take. If it does not give relief in 4-5days, contact me again. Do not ignore. It could be beginning of a serious problem.
