Knee injury, when to see a Dr?

Last Wednesday I went to bend down and felt an very horrible pain in my knee. Since then I've experienced pain in the knee and it gets worse at night and when doing down the stairs. I've been trying to stay off it as much as possible and have been using ice and elevating it. The swelling has gone down for the most part, but I'm still feeling sharp and sometimes shooting pain around and in the knee. I'm wondering if I should go see a dr or if I should just wait a few more days to see if it heals itself.

I'd suggest seeing the dr. Even if they tell you to do what you're doing now, at least you'd have the reassurance of knowing.

Good luck and keep us posted!
