Anyone ever hurt their knee?

Myriam - August 30

Hi! I know this has nthing to do with fibro, but I need help. I fell down on Saturday. I hit the edge of a metal step straight on my kneecap. I had immediate severe pain, so severe I felt extremely sick to my stomach. My knee swell. I have a small bruise, and a dark red line where it hit the stair. I am able to walk, without bending the knee. It supports maybe 60% of my weight. However, stairs are deadly, so is driving and sitting for long period of time. I am going to see my doctor today, because the pain has not gone down and the swelling either. Any of you ever hurt their knee like that? If so, you think I broke my knee cap?

I've never hurt my knee before but I have large tumours on both knees from my bone disease. So they pretty much hurt all the time.

I hope for your speedy recovery, and its a good thing to get it checked by the doc. Have a good day :)

Myriam - Going to the doctor is absolutely the right thing to do. I took a very bad fall this summer and smashed the heck out of both knees. I have advanced osteoarthitis in both of them so I was terrified that I might have added to the damage. I was swollen and six shades of green and purple from my knees to about mid shin for weeks. Everything was fine and I hope that you will be too. Let us know the outcome. I'm keeping my fingers crossed it is nothing serious.
