Fell really hard & my knee is getting worse...
« on: January 30, 2007, 04:46:47 AM »
I recently had a little too much of a crazy night, and while i was running to catch up with a friend, I fell really hard on the concrete and scraped & bruised my knees. I thought it was going to get better, but its still getting worse and hurting more after a week. Its swollen and has really bad pinching around and behind the kneecap. Im also having a really hard time bending it and it throbs even when elevated. Any ideas of what could be wrong?? Thanks!

If it is not getting any better after a weeks time, you need to make an appointment with an orthopedic doctor and get it checked out. Dont take any chances. In the meantime RICE. (rest,ice, compression, and elevation). Good luck! Let us know what you find out.

Hi

Cannot guess whats wrong with your injured knee, but an urgent visit to your Doctor is required without further delay as you may have to have it x-rayed to establish that there is no serious hidden damage..
