Customer Question

I have a swollen knee which can be painful. It was better but deteriorated again after I had been on it for some time. In addition, I feel heavy like I have a cold and I feel very cold at times and then get very hot, like a flush, and have sweats. I am wondering if this is connected to my knee. I have been taking Ibuprofen which has given some relief.
