Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Hello! My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm a Consultant Rheumatologist and I am reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.
Is there any swelling in the knee ?
Thanks for the detail
It can be an injury to soft tissue structure around knee joint like ligament or menisci
You should start taking an anti-inflammatory like Ibuprofen in addition to the compression
If in a day or so you don,t feel any improvement then you will need to see the doctor for examination and further investigations like an MRI and X-ray
Please do let me know if you have any other question
You are welcome
