Hello there. I can understand your concern for your mother. Your mother needs to take rest for sometime. Over use of muscles could cause pain and swelling. If there is pain also, then she can take a tab. Dolnista-p once or twice a day after food. Kindly consult a general physician in person if the issue persists. Best regards. Dr. Anil kumar jain.
