Brief Answer: Follows Detailed Answer: Dear Sir, Thank you for posting your query on XXXXXXX Well looking into your problem I would like to tell you that the problem that you are telling you is due to overtraining . When you start exercising or suddenly increase your exercise duration the joints are not adapted to that and hence they start paining . You need to increase the exercise gradually and build indurance . When it pains you can take rest , do some hot fomentation , apply local topical paracetamol gel if necessary . It will subside on its own , just do the proper warm up before exercising. But in case even after doing all this your problem worsens consult a doctor . Take care. Dr. Shruti
