Hello doctor,

I am 30 years old. I have been feeling pain in my left knee when I sit on the ground. When I get up it takes two minutes for the left knee to get normal and function without pain. I got a massage, but that did not work. Instead, my back started hurting slightly after that. Please advise whether it is calcium deficiency or any other cause. At normal times, it does not hurt much. My height is 6'1" and weight is 96 kg.

Welcome to icliniq.com.

  • No, this is not a calcium deficiency. Probably, it is prepatellar bursitis.
  • The symptoms of calcium deficiency will not be confined to one knee and it is unusual in young persons.

Thank you doctor,

Do I need to get any medical prescription required or any test? Will a home remedy work for it?

Welcome back to icliniq.com.

  • I suggest the following. Consult your specialist doctor, discuss with him or her and take the medicine with consent.
  1. Apply ice thrice daily on the left knee.
  2. Tablet Enzomac plus (combination of Trypsin, Bromelain and Rutoside trihydrate) twice daily after food and tablet Cyra D (Domperidone and Rabeprazole) at morning on an empty stomach for 10 days.
  • Avoid kneeling on ground for a few days. In future, you can use a soft knee pad while kneeling on the ground.

Revert back after 10 days to an orthopaedician and traumatologist online --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/orthopaedician-and-traumatologist
