knee pain
Hello,
I ran last night about 5-6km(3-4miles). In my sleep I started feeling pain in my right knee(on the exterior side(lateral part) of my knee more exactly). When I woke the pain was so intense that I couldn't walk with that leg. I had a hot bath and applied Diclofenac.
I left for college and the pain was pretty big, but it started to disappear with time(by time I mean hours). The pain becomes intense again if I go down the stairs.
More info
-I'm 21 years old
-there are no swellings
-din't have any previous injuries to the knee.
-the pain isn't constant, it appears only when walkng
-I think by tomorrow it will be completly gone, should I go to the doctor in any case?

Hi, this could be due to ligament injury, try elastic bandage, ice compressions, limb elevation during sleep (cushion below leg), anti inflammatory drugs and rest. If no improvement is seen in a week time, do consult doctor for investigations.
