swollen knee

just a quick question..i am 15 and i was just at disney and while there i had slight knee pain..not enough to quit walking just to walk slower..then just today we got back and realized my knee is a bit swollen..not alot but to make it uncomfortable and uneasy to walk..i am healthy and had not had any injuries prior to the trip..and iv never experienced this on any other trips..i think i may just have over worked it but what do you guys think

Hi there,
The exact location of your knee pain can help your doctor determine the nature and severity of your injury. A deformed and swollen knee may indicate a fracture or internal ligament tear. At the same time other causes of knee pain like bursitis, osteoarthritis, rheumatoid arthritis should also be considered .See an orthopaedician.He will examine you and determine if X-rays are needed or not. Take some over the counter analgesic. That may help. Do write to me again with more details.
Best luck and regards!

sounds like your right you overworked your knee, try elevating it and just stay off of it until the swelling goes down, maybe a cold compress will help too as that relieves swelling...good luck!! wish i was in disney lol
