Sprained my knee...
On Sunday, I slipped on muddy grass, fell, and sprained my knee (all while already at urgent care, as sad a that is! My friend had sprained her ankle, so I went with her, and she forgot her insurance card in the car, so I was running out to get it when this happened...
So anyway, my knee kills! (Right now, I'd put it around a 7/10)...
It mainly hurts on the inner side (MCL area), but the pain does go around my patellae towards the other side.
I saw a doctor at urgent care who put me in an immobilizer and told me to see a sports/orthopedic doctor this week. I called and made an appointment as soon as I could, but unfortunately, the soonest appointment that was available was Friday (which is now thankfully just a day away)!
Bending or straightening my knee too much hurts, and it feels a bit unstable a well. There's little to no swelling, but for me, that's normal as I rarely swell any significant amount (even after tearing my ankle ligaments to the point of needing surgery to fix them, there was only a little swelling -- just to give you an idea).
I hope I didn't mess my knee up too bad! I'm only 22, and I'm supposed to go back to school on Monday, and classes start Tuesday. I can't be hobbling around campus too much!
