Bursitis Bursitis Injuries Jogging Knee Pain Running Swelling Walk Walking

Go slow!


Let pain be your guide. Assuming the current conservative treatment is working, slowly start increasing your activity - perhaps just walking, or jogging a short distance. STOP if you get even a "twinge" of pain. Then see how things feel for the next day or so. If there are no signs of aggravating the injury (swelling or pain returns or worsens), then you can try again for a longer distance.

There are several possibilities here: -are you sure it's strep? were you tested? -you may also have mono (infectious mononucleosis), which usually causes fatigue, fever, swollen glands. At least 25% of people with mono also have strep. -you may have an abscess in your tonsils, which may need to get drained You should see a doctor and get reexamined to see if you need further treatment.

10 days is average


10 days is average but treating the ulcer with HeNe laser will decrease the time and reduce the pain. If you are susceptible to repeated cold sores you may consider using the HeNe laser as soon as you become aware a lesion may be forming. Use 30 seconds of spot size on each area of the lesion.
