You mean it hyper extended? How, did you slip?

Is it swollen? Does it straighten and bend properly? How is it not the same? Donít seem to be able to download your image unfortunateky

If concerned, see a knee specialist, may have damaged something in the knee, maybe sprained or torn a ligament. May need a thorough check, or a scan
In the meantime, rest it, elevate it, ice it (20 mins, with ice pack wrapped in a cloth to protect the skin)

Yes I was on the treadmill and hyper extended my knee I moved it and then heard a crunching noise in the back of it. Got some pain but the next morning is when it was swollen, couldnít straighten it and was very painful. Went to walk in clinic at my local orthopedics office and they did a X-ray and told me that my right knee cap is a little off itís track and goes to the left. She told me that I have patella tendinitis. And to start PT. The physical therapist told me that I definitely tweaked my knee.  I canít put all my weight on it and it hurts to go down the stairs. I also get pain on the inner side of my knee and behind my calf and thigh. Also feels like something is getting caught and that my knee cap is floating around. I saw my pcp today and she ordered a MRI. She told me to ice, wrap it and take IPB.

Sounds like youíre in good hands, see what the mri shows. Could be a ligament or meniscus injury for example
Even what seem like minor knee injuries can take weeks if not months to resolve, and need lots of patience to rehab and heal. So 10 days on, itís very soon, still in the acute phase
Good luck :)
