How long ago did this happen?

Any bruising or swelling around your knee?

Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

And about the bruising and swelling?

Ask Your Own Medical Question
Customer reply replied 7 months ago
no bruising and no swelling yet. just can't twist it
Doctor: Dr Chip (M.D.), Doctor replied 7 months ago

OK

This may just be a simple knee sprain but you may have torn a meniscus or a collateral ligament

For now, rest, ice, elevation of the leg, and oral ibuprofen can help but if after that there's still a problem tomorrow you need to see your doctor for an exam and an MRI of the knee to check for those

Please let me know if you need any more information

Thank you to the Physician who answered my question today. The answer was far more informative than what I got from the Physicians I saw in person for my problem.
