    I googled it for you and found this site.  It looked like it had several remedies.  Hope this helps.

  • While you sitting, keep your legs up (decrease weight on your legs).. You can also use a frozen bag( peas or veggies) on your knees, while you keep them elevated...

  • Burt's bees makes a lovely ointment called muscle mend. When my leg acts up (broke it 2 years ago), that's what I use to ease the pain. I also use it on my shoulders, neck, and other tired, sore, achy muscles. It does smell like menthol, but in my opinion, its not as bad as products like ben gay or other muscle rubs. It's also not as greasy, and a little goes a long way, so you're not using as much.
