Intense work outs, knee pain, discomfort. Used ankle brace, knee swelling. Causes?

I have been doing some intense working out for 2 weekw now and both of my knees have started hurting. Not bad just uncomfortable...probably cause I am a larger person and my knees aren t used to this kind of exercise. I put an ankle brace on my right knee this morning and now my right ankle is swollen....could it be bc the brace is a bit tight?

I have studied your case.

Excessive weight causes strain on knee .

Use ice packs to reduce swelling, inflammation and pain.
Physiotherapy with ultrasound and Tens will help you,
For early healing you can take Tab celin [vit C] and antioxidant with anti-inflammatory [Tab enzomac plus]

If pain persist then you may need to do MRI again to see for any functional defect.
Tight brace can lead to ankle swelling so loosen it or do not use it.
