Patient's Query

Hello doctor,

I am a 28-year-old suffering from knee pain for two to three days. Kindly suggest me medicine for pain relief.

Thank you.


Welcome to icliniq.com.

I have read the query, and I can understand your concern.

Knee pain is a common complaint that affects people of all ages. Knee pain may be caused by an injury or other medical conditions like arthritis, patellar tendinitis, anterior cruciate ligament injury, knee bursitis, torn meniscus, gout, and infections. I suggest the following measures for your pain:

  1. Ice is good for controlling the pain and swelling. It can be applied to the knee for 15 to 20 minutes as often as every two to four hours. The swollen knee should be elevated above the heart level while icing.

  2. Activities that cause pain should be avoided temporarily.

  3. If the knee is swollen or sore, squatting, kneeling, twisting, pivoting, jogging, aerobics, dancing, playing sports, and other activities should be avoided until knee pain and swelling resolve.

  4. Also, maintaining a healthy body weight to avoid overstressing your knees is very important.

Additionally, I suggest the following medications:

  1. Tablet Etoricoxib 60 mg twice for ten days after food.

  2. Tablet Rabeprazole 20 mg twice for ten days before food.

  3. Tablet Shelcal 500 mg (Calcium and Vitamin D3) once in the morning for 30 days before food.

  4. Tablet D-Shine 60 K (Vitamin D3) once daily for ten days, then once a month for 11 months.

Consult a specialist doctor, talk to them, and then take the medication. Take these tablets only if you are not allergic to them. Do not take these tablets if you have bronchial asthma. Follow-up immediately in case of an untoward reaction.

I hope this will help you.

Thank you.
