Ever fell upstairs?

Well, I did last night! After fixing my decorations on my stair bannister I went to move and my knee gave away. I almost fell downstairs, but I say I fell upstairs! LOL. I have a torn meniscus in my right knee, and I never know when my knee will give away on me. I stumbled one step from the landing, and my right knee hit that step. My back kinda twisted a bit and my left knee hit the step but not like the right knee. I immediately took some pain meds, and went to bed. I was in much pain. I couldn't even make dinner. Two of our grands were there, so my dh went for pizza.

Now today, my back and both knees are hurting. It feels as though I can't get my back in a comfortable position. If I twist a bit it feels much better. I'm wearing my knee brace, but I don't have one for my back. I do see the ortho on the 3rd.
