- Back pain.

Treatment

Self-care:
- Drink plenty of fluids.

- Wear support stockings to help promote the circulation of blood in your legs.

Medications:

Specialists:
Seek immediate medical attention from a Pulmonologist in case you start developing severe breathing and respiratory problems. At mfine, you will receive a comprehensive treatment plan for optimum health and speedy recovery.
