after a fall, knee pain
notsosmooth posted:
I injured my knee after falling down a snowy hill about 3 weeks ago. When I fell my right leg was bent at the knee to about a 90 degree angle straight out to the side. Since then the pain has not lessened. There was no edema, no bruising, but if I bend my knee to the same degree I have an increase in pain, feels like a burning sensation and I can palpate an area at the inside of my knee that increases the pain. Pain is worse on the lateral inside of my knee but also have pain on the outer side of the knee. If I try to turn to my side in bed and bend my knees together the pain worsens. I am a travel nurse so I don't have a primary care doc to see, if I go to a urgent care center will they be able to check ligaments other than by use of XR or CT? If it is a ligament, am I making it worse by continuing to walk and work on it?

Hi notsosmooth,

I hate to hear about your injury and personally believe that the best thing is to always contact your medical professional. Here is the WebMD Knee Problems Overview that contains information on knee injuries that may help you, especially when speaking with your physician.

I wish you the best! Take care. :)
