Customer Question
I twisted my left knee...
I twisted my left knee several weeks ago. Sat morning I work up with excruciating pain when I walked. I still have that pain, there is soreness on back of the knee, on the inside and up the front of the thigh. I am in a lot of pain, Tylenol useless, I am trying to decide if I should go to ER room on a Sunday or wait to try to get into doctor tomorrow.

A little swelling behind the kneeI cannot see any bruising

I just wanted to make sure we weren't dealing with a deep venous thrombosus--a clot in a leg vein--here

Doesn't sound like we are

No need for the ER then--tomorrow is soon enough to get this evaluated

It sounds like a combination of bursitis and possibly a torn meniscus cartilage so you need an exam and an MRI scah of the knee

Please let me know if you need any more information
