Use RICE: R=Rest the knee from the painful activity. I=Ice the affected area for 20 minutes, 3 times a day. C=Compress the painful area with an elastic bandage. E=Elevate the leg. If these don't work, try various pain relievers such as aspirin or ibuprofen (some brand names: Advil, Motrin). Doctors may also recommend braces or crutches. As a last resort, doctors recommend surgery. I'm not a doctor, this is not medical advice, but merely information taken from I am not responsible for the results of following any of these recommendations.

How do you cure Osca-Shlatters disease?

This is a disease of the knee (has a different name for other body parts)that is caused during children's growing periods where the tendon and the bone are not exactly in synch. In the old days, the cure was bedrest and so on, hoping to avoid any permanent problems. When my son had it, he used the ice and Tylenol and was allowed any activities he could work through as far as the pain. Once his growth slowed down, the problem was resolved. There were no residual effects. Osgood-Schlatters disease. Osgood-Schlatter disease is thought to be caused by chronic microtrauma and it is considered an overuse disorder. The main treatments are symptomatic, including nonsteroidal anti-inflammatory drugs, such as ibuprofen, rest, and putting ice on the area after playing sports. Y-THINK-Y

What disease can kill you in 2 weeks?

Depression, technically it is now considered a disease and could cause being suicidal therefore could kill in 2 weeks. My point is any disease could kill you in 2 weeks depending on it's effects on you. Many disease cause problems that could lead to death eg osgood schlatters (the bone growing faster than the muscle, basically extreme growing pains) can cause weakness in the legs which could cause falling over. If you fell and hit your head you could die. No disease is guaranteed to kill you in 2 weeks but and disease could kill you in 2 weeks.
