View Full Version : Okay, so how badly did I just hurt myself?

All right. About an hour ago, I took a step and my knee decided it didn't want to be friends anymore. There were several sort of ... popping sensations in my knee, and then it hurt like very little I've ever felt before, and then I fell over. It still really, really hurts to bend or straighten my knee, right along the inside of my knee.

It doesn't look swollen, but it looks red.

I don't think you're in serious trouble if you can still bend and straighten your leg but if the pain continues I'd suggest seeking medical attention. Maybe you can ask your parent or guardian to check out your knee to see if they think it is bad or not?

If there's no swelling, and Like Abhorrence said, you can still move it, you should be okay. Leave it a couple of days and if the pain gets worse or it starts to swell lots then maybe see a doctor.

I have similar things happen to my joints, it could just be that your joint is hyper mobile so moves more than it should. It's fairly common.
