May I suggest, if you can, try taking a warm bath with Epsom salts and or lavender to relax and reduce swelling or stiffness in your body. Afterward, massage in either Arnicare or lavender cream to reduce the pain as both penetrate the muscles and tissues to relieve pain.
Also, you might try taking a picture of the swelling and email that to your consultant.
I hope this helps.
