So I fell about 3 weeks ago and sprained my ankle, and hit my knee, it was bruised for a week then the swelling went down and so did the bruising, I went to cedar point for a day wasn’t bad. My knee has been sore though just slightly almost like you whack it on the corner of an end table or something after a day.
Well I have been doing wii fit this week, and last night and today I busted out dance dance revolution, last night I was perfectly fine. Today idk what the heck happened.
I was dancing away having fun and my knee popped about 3 times after I did a jump, well it didn’t hurt I just figured it was popping, and continued dancing for about another 20 min, I went for a total of an hour with dancing… anyways once I cooled down my knee is pretty painful, slightly swollen, and getting rather stiff around the bottom of the knee cap and the sides, and it shoots pain down into my lower leg and it feels like my foot is going a little tingly.
I just had to go the E.R. the other night for an issue, and the past 3 weeks before that it seems I have been in and out of urgent care and E.R. for sprained ankle, cyst, then the other days problem.
I do not want to have to go to Urgent care yet again and have to explain WHY I keep ending up in the presence of docs this month it’s kind of embarrassing.
My primary care doc is great but she’s hardly ever in the office it seems, and she usually just sends me to a specialist if she can’t fix it. Which has happened already a couple times, I’m not complaining but I don’t see the point of having a PCD if I hardly see her. At least if I only had to explain it to one person it wouldn’t be so bad, but several people over and over and over, and my insurance company… they’re probably tired of seeing urgent care and emergency visits.
Anyone know something I can do at home other than Ice and Elevation and rest which I was doing. I can elevate my leg still now but it’s getting pretty hard to do pain free and the pain meds I have are not helping at all.
