Hi doctor,

I have pain in my knees and around the ankles, since the last two weeks. It all started when I walked around in high-heeled shoes one day. After that, I got my periods and the pain got aggravated. The pain has decreased, but is still quite bad. Also, I recently went to get a Pap test done, but due to insufficient cells, the test could not be done.

Hello,

Welcome to icliniq.com.

It is unfortunate that you are suffering from knee pain and it got aggravated by periods.

  • Any pain already present can get aggravated with menses. The best thing to do now is rest and avoiding straining the same muscles. I suggest you try hot fomentation, analgesic, and antispasmodic medicines.
  • Avoid coffee, tea, and alcohol till the pain subsides. Also, drink plenty of water.
  • There is no need to worry about the Pap smear test now. You can repeat it after three months or as advised.

Hello doctor,

Thank you for the reply. Do I need to get my vitamin D or calcium test done? I have a 2 year old kid and had been breastfeeding for a while. Could this be the other reason for my tiredness and leg cramps?
