User:Hello Doctor
User:Good afternoon!
Doctor:Good afternoon
User:I'm feeling pain in my knees these days (since 4-5 weeks)
User:especially when I sit down (on the floor) for a long time
Doctor:is pain radiating to ankles, foot or upside?
User:as soon as i get up... I can not stand straight (I can't make the leg striaght as it pains a lot... especially the right legt knee)
User:not at ankles... Only at knee
Doctor:Do you feel tingling or numbness?
Doctor:Then it is mostly related to posture like prolong sitting
User:I feel both the legs heavy when I travel in a bus for an hour or two
Doctor:Have you tried any medication?
User:it takes 5-10 minutes to set right
User:no not yet
User:I am a bit afraid... is it something related to Knee/Joints issue?
Doctor:It is mostly due to contractions of muscle when you sit for long time, when you stand after prolong sitting muscles start relaxing then you feel pain
Doctor:I don't think it is serious issue
User:But, I did not come across any such in the past
User:Is it just because i turned 30 :D
Doctor:I suggest you do walk for 5 minutes in between your work at 2 hours interval
User:during work... I dont feel the pain
User:only during travel... because the Seats are a bit high from the ground level... Hence I can not rest my entire feet on the floor of the bus.
Doctor:As I told you when muscles starts relax then you will feel pain hence you are feeling pain during travel
User:Yeah, I understand that. Becuase, I also feel pain in my back when I'm about to take rest for the day (when I'm about to go to sleep and as soon as i lay down on the bed)
Doctor:I also suggest you get Vitamin B12 and Vitamin D blood test done
User:*take rest after hectic physical activity
User:any other suggestions?
Doctor:No need to worry, I suggest you take Paracetamol 650 mg for pain
Doctor:hot water fomentation will help you
User:Ok. Paracetamol... whenever I feel pain? or daily till the time I dont feel that pain?
Doctor:And I also suggest you do some stretch exercises after going home
Doctor:take whenever you gets pain
Doctor:regular exercises will help you
User:I should start using European Toilets instead of XXXXXXX
