4 weeks, I've been having spasms in the back of my knee in which never goes away, and I can't walk nor put pressure on my knee. It only hurts when I put pressure or try to walk, then the spasms begin. I went to the ER and they did a PVL on my leg to check for blood clots or a bakers cyst..but none was found. The ER doctor said, I have a sprain knee and gave me flexril (knee spasms), and perocet (for pain). This is my 5th week, I can walk a little bit but only for a little while before the spasms come back. I went to an orthopedic, and he gave me a shot of cortisome which helped some. Could you tell me whats wrong..and if it is sprain how much longer will I have to remain on crutches. PS. I wasn't doing any type of exercises nor anything rigorous to cause injury...I was just walking down some stairs
