i have not notice any siffuncant swelling around the knee or bursing or redness but i feel like when i press on it (this hurts ) it feels like there is a crack or a desformed somthing in my knee

Hello Britt,


Welcome to the Pain Management Forum.

It is possible to miss a fracture (FX). However your knee and supporting structures is a very complicated joint. It is my guess that you may have other things going on beside a FX. In my opinion, it's time to consult an othro....or return to the one you originally consulted.

Best of luck to you. I hope they will be able to get to the bottom of your pain.

Take Care,
~Tuck
