Stretch after workouts. Exercising, injury or overuse of muscles can often lead to leg cramps.] People can get cramps within minutes or up to six hours after working out or any type of physical exertion. If nighttime cramps are an issue, be sure to stretch before bedtime, but make sure your muscles are warmed up. Try soaking in warm water or using a heating pad. Bathing in warm water or the use of heating pads is often recommended to relieve the discomfort of leg cramps. Heat may help ease cramping by increasing blood flow to the area and relaxing the muscle. Try soaking in a warm bath and use a heating pad on muscles that feel stiff or tight. Pay attention to the positioning of your legs. To reduce the chance of leg cramping, avoid standing on hard surfaces for a long period of time or sitting for a long time.Instead, make sure you allow the blood to circulate throughout your limbs by moving and stretching your legs frequently during the day. Know your limits during workouts. Oftentimes, cramps are a result of pushing yourself harder than your body is used to. Avoid rapidly increasing the intensity or duration of a workout. Instead, train up to it gradually, and always pace yourself. Stay hydrated. Some studies have found that staying hydrated will prevent cramps (while other studies have found no correlation between the two). Researchers believe that the decreased fluid around a body’s cells causes muscle twitches, which in turn causes cramps. Be sure to drink enough water daily and replenish after exercising. Replenish sodium. Electrolytes are essential in maintaining the fluid balance in your body and can be lost when you sweat. Sodium in particular is lost through sweat more than other electrolytes. If you are sweating — especially if the weather is hot, if you are exercising, or you are an endurance athlete — the loss of sodium may lead to cramping and more dangerous condition called hyponatremia Increase your calcium intake. Ensure you have enough magnesium in your blood. Avoid potassium depletion FOR MEDICATION CONSULT ONLINE IN PRIVATE.

Pain in left knee with swelling due to osteoporosis and osteoarthritis. Please suggest me.
Do use "RICE." Rest, ice, compression, and elevation (RICE) is good for knee pain caused by a minor injury or an arthritis flare. Give your knee some rest, apply ice to reduce swelling, wear a compressive bandage, and keep your knee elevated.

Glucozone Tablet is used in the treatment of osteoarthritis. AS you r overweight n you r jogging this is causing you trouble. See actually our knees have to bear our weight n you r walking extra every day which is why knee problem. Instead do exercises that will not put weight on knee joint like swimming, cycling, yoga, strength training in gym Do following-- 1. Eat something like a banana (if you are not diabetic) or any seasonal fruit or soaked almonds and a glass of water first thing in the morning (within 10 mins of waking up). 2. Take your breakfast every day. Don't skip it. 3. Have light meals every 2 hours (in addition to your breakfast, lunch n dinner) e.g. Nariyal paani, chaach, a handful of dry fruits, a handful of peanuts, seasonal fruit, a cup of curd/milk etc 4. Finish your dinner at least 2 hours before going to sleep. 5. Maintain active life style 6. Avoid fast foods n fried foods 7.Take a lot of green vegetables n fruit. 8. Drink lot of water 9. Everyday preferably sleep on same time Eating every 2 hours increases basal metabolic rate also. If you follow this over a period of time you will see that your intake of food has decreased Exercise in the form of yoga, cycling, Swimming, gymming, walking etc. For more details you can consult me. Now about point no. 5. You should join a gym for weight training. Do it 2-3 times a week with at least 48 hours in between 2 sessions.

I am a 45 year old female with normal weight. I run ten kilometres thrice a week on the treadmill. The other three days I do weight training in the gym.

If you have a diagnosis report then share, if not then take a report. Sound have many reason in knee, so its better to take an report. No prob what's the prob in knee, by cartilage formation technique it will be good. Further query choose appropriate action.
