The injury would be a combination of extension and twisting injury.

It would not likely be pure extension, but would typically damage a lateral meniscus or ligament.

This needs examination.

OK, let me know if you have more questions.

Yes you should be concerned.This can be referred pain.It can be from an ear infection, sinus infection or strep throat.I would consider urgent care for an exam, exam of ears, exam of sinuses, and maybe a rapid strep test.OK, let me know if you have more questions.I am here as needed.Also, please click a positive rating on the rating scale.
