I will inform paypal
Expert:  Dr Anil Kumar replied 2 months ago.

Thanks for all these additional information.
I understand your concern.
Well as you describe,possibly it's ligament tear or tendonitis.

So you should take OTC Motrin 400-600 mg every 4-6 hourly.

Also take apply cool compresses with ice wrapped in a cotton cloth for 5-10 minutes.

You should wear knee brace.

And use crutches for walking.

Avoid putting weight on your leg.

And see your doctor for a clinical examination for further evaluation and management.

If pain is unbearable then visit ER.

Let me know if you have any further query so we can discuss it thoroughly in every aspect.
