i am sorry to know about your symptoms
when did the injury take place
what medications have you tried so far?
any swelling ?
hyperextended knee during work for the past 2 months, today as i walk to class i hear and feel a pop on r knee and had a sharp pn had to shift weight to my other leg for a second and could not walk with out pn normal x ray are negative i got noprisen for pn and swelling and a brace
I am sorry to know about your symptoms and the trauma the knee
Based on what you mentioned,it seems that you must have be having underlying ligament(anterior cruciate) injury as it may present with similar popping sound and happens due to hyperextension of the knee
xray is not sensitive test for ligament injuries
so mri needs to be done to confirm it
Meanwhile I will advise that you get over the counter topical xylocaine 2% which will help subside your symptoms
i can still walk slow but every now and then i get a sharp pn how concern should i be should the knee be completly inmobilise or partialy
I will advise that you do not put weight on the affected knee ,try to take rest as much as you can,so that you do not exacerbate underlying injury
how can this be resolve
Mri report will let us know the extent of injury,mostly it is resolved by taking anti inflammatory medications and rest
I do not think there is complete tear of the ligament ,based on what you described
how long does it take average to recover
looking at your age ,no history of medical condition,it takes 3-6 months,but it varies in every individual
ok thank you Doctor
