Customer Question

I just touched the bottom part of my knee softly with a chair.. Immediately, I started having trouble bending my knee.. I felt my knee and felt a soft/hardish thing that I can move around.. I can walk fine.. but just can't bend my knee without some pain.. Is there something I can do about this?

Hi there ...
If you don't have swelling or redness around knee than it would be ideal for you to have rest , cold compression and over the counter Tab Naproxen sodium 220 mg two tablets twice a day for 3 days it will help you out .
But if you have swelling and redness than it would be ideal to have examination by dr .
Please leave positive feedback for me .
Thanks .

It is typical of arthritis.
There is no question that you need to see a doctor, regardless.
Do that as soon as possible.

Use ice.
