I was doing a little exercise yesterday. Following a zumba video and I am glad that I have that perspiration that I need. Everything is okay but later on that day i felt some pain on my left foot. I guess this is a sprain. When I woke up today I still can feel the pain. What can you suggest as home remedies?

You can try to apply ice to the sprain. Maybe it will help.

@caopaopao I did try it and have a little comfort doing it. But it was just a short relief. I guess I really have to rest and not walk even just inside the house.

@chavezrmc You can put the ice on the sprain,not too long at a time,like about ten minutes. You can use hot towel for hot compress to reduce swelling tomorrow. You can also put on some liquid medicine for promoting blood circulation.

I think you need to have cold compress, my friend.

I did it earlier and have a little comfort. But it comes back after. Think I really need to take rest and not walk around.

@chavezrmc You can also apply an elastic bandage and elevate the leg while lying down.

I think it would be good to have the foot X-rayed. One never knows from outside what it is. Wear an elastic sock which you can buy in a pharmacy until a physicist tells you what to do.

My place is on lockdown due to the virus till end of the month sad that it will not be easy to go to a hospital where I can see a doctor. Now I am trying to just watch movies to avoid moving. Thank you for your advice will do it soon as I can.

Okay, I will follow this thread. I too was suffering from a sore elbow after I hyper-extended my arm.

Well this can really happen. And i am hoping soon it will be gone. I'm thankful that it's lock down and not going to work.

@chavezrmc same here, I could still work out, but I think the work in the office and warehouse could worsen my elbow injury.
