    Brief Medical History Overview

    Exclamation I fell on my knee HARD while running

    Physical Agents In Rehabilitation
    Over a week ago, on friday.. my friend had a limo bus for her 21st birthday. We went downtown to celebrate. On our way back to the limo, it started to downpour so we all took off running full speed. Mid sprint, I start to lose my balance and fall on my right knee and do a semi-somersault.

    It swelled up pretty bad over the next few days. Ice didn't do much. I'm really not trying to "baby" it whatsoever. When I stand up on both legs, my patellar tendon wont tighten like my non-injured leg.. both above and below the knee.

    It also feels like my kneecap itself is protruding higher than my other leg. I'm worried I may have torn something. I had x-rays, they came back negative. I seen my doctor and she said she thinks I just really bruised it.

    Any suggestions? Should I get an Wikipedia reference-linkMRI to be sure, or just wait it out?

    I still gimp around, bending my leg is uncomfortable. With the tendon not tightening, I'm able to physically make it tighten but it wont do it by itself while walking or anything.

    Please help.

    THANKS!

    sorry u fell so hard on your knee but you have to laugh. i too feel playing racketball and had similar probs. it was really really sore to touch just above knee cap. it felt like it was burning. even trousers on my knee killed me. one day i noticed the area above the knee cap had a "water balloon" effect. this was all squishy and moveable. it got bigger and bigger and bigger. eventually my knee cap disappeared. i had to have the fluid drained. i was diagnosed with pre patellar bursitis. i had damaged a bursis in the knee. you have loads of them over your body but had damaged mine on my knee. 6 months down the line its ok now after draining and medicine.

    hope this helps
