Hello doctor,

I am a 27-year-old overweight male. I have had severe knee pain, inflammation, and stiffness for two days. I cannot keep my leg straight due to the pain; it is also severe when bending my knee. Previously, I have used tablet Ibuprofen for my knee pain. Also, recently I have been diagnosed with diabetes and arthritis.

Kindly advise.



Welcome to

I understand your concern.

I suggest the below treatment plan for five days:

  • Tablet Emanzen-D (Diclofenac and Serratiopeptidase) twice daily.
  • Tablet Pan 40 (Pantoprazole) once daily on an empty stomach.

Consult a specialist doctor, talk to him or her, and take the medicines with their consent. Also, I suggest you avoid pain killers for long term and reduce your weight through diet and exercise. It will also help control diabetes.

I hope this helps.

Thank you.
