Help Please
« on: April 24, 2014, 03:57:14 AM »
I played in a hockey game earlier today. I fell twice, once was by my own player and second I was tripped. The first time my knee twisted a little. I felt immediate pain and was having trouble skating. Silly me I stayed in the game when the coach didn't want me to. The second time I fell there was two minutes left in the third period, I was behind the net fighting for the puck and I was tripped. My knee this time went a totally different direction it should have. I was trying to move my knee when I was down and I guess I twisted it wrong. It took me a little while to get up, after that I couldn't skate, it was not possible. I was limping badly and almost fell flat on my face trying to make it to the bench. My coach asked me "ankle? foot?" I yelled back in pain knee! He was very concerned. We have a trainer, she gave me ice but that is really all she could do. I felt like someone put a knife through the outer side of my left knee. I couldn't bend my knee past ninety degrees. I still have pain at the outer side of my knee and at the back. When I bend it I can feel the tendons moving and stretching....weird? I know. It feels very unstable, it wobbles when I walk. I have no confidence in it because I have a feeling it will give out.

I am just wondering if anyone can help because I am really worried and in a lot of pain.

I think you posted before

Given you are concerned and in pain, you should go see a doctor (preferably a specialist or a GP if in a country where a referral is needed)

A twisting injury could have caused any of a number of injuries - a strain, ligament damage, meniscus damage, tendon or damage to the bones.  Instability also needs to be checked by a professional.  Unfortunately no one on the internet can tell you what you have done - a professional needs to see and feel your knee, perhaps do an X Ray or an MRI scan

Protect, Rest, Ice, Elevate, Compression.  Use an anti inflammatory or other painkiller if needed

Good luck :)
