    Knee injury pain

    About a week ago, I fell very hard directly on my knee while it was bent. I fell from a height of about a foot and a half because I missed a step, and came down hard. X-ray didn't show any fractures. I've started having really bad pain in the back of my knee and it is tender to the touch. It also looks like there is a vein popping out on my upper calf right below the knee. Could that have been caused by the fall? Could it mean a blood clot? My leg isn't warm though it is a little swollen around the knee and in my ankle.

    RE: Knee injury pain

    Unfortunately, you can not be diagnosed on an internet message board. Go back to your doctor and insist on more testing like an MRI, CT scan, or ultrasound. An x-ray will not show soft tissue damage or potential circulation problems.

    I pray you find answers and relief soon.
