Hi! I am an 18 year old klutzy college student. The first week of school I was walking down a hill and I tripped and fell directly on my right knee. It hurt really bad for two days and was bruised lightly for those days. After that I thought that I was just fine, until I was in my dorm room and I hit my knee on my chair. It hurt like crazy! Now, anytime I hit my knee against anything or if I kneel on it, it hurts really badly. I don't know what is wrong. How would I explain this to a doctor? Or should I even go to a doctor? Some of my friends say that I should do something about this, but I don't know what I should do. Is this pain anything, or is it something that will go away? i fell over five weeks ago, and I still have pain. If anyone could help me, that would be great. Thank you!
