you could have fractured your patella or caused a bone bruise there.
you should ice your knee to help decrease inflammation and pain
you most likely hit a nerve on the skin on your knee and this has caused this numbness on the skin.
have you tried to ice your knee yet?
it sounds like you bruised the bone there
or injured a nerve there
that is why it is numb
you should try to ice your knee
and get an xray of your knee
to make sure there is not a microfracture there.
yes, a bruised bone will get better with time.
a hairline fracture may not hurt
I am glad you are able to move your knee.
resting the knee and it should get better on its own.
you might need a cast or a knee brace.
I bet you bruised the bone pretty severely
and damaged a nerve there right on the skin.
