Back in July I came off my motorbike. I think I mostly landed on my left knee (though I don't remember as the impact gave me concussion so I recall next to nothing of the actual accident). I was taken to hospital where the knee was X-rayed, which apparently showed no break. I was told to rest it, take painkillers, apply ice packs and perhaps try arnica cream.
Unsurprisingly the knee was swollen and painful for a while afterwards but has mostly returned to normal now. Sometimes it does ache a bit if it's had a slight knock or anything, but nothing very troublesome.
However, skin over one half of the kneecap remains numb. I've mentioned this to my GP recently and they didn't seem concerned, but I expected it to have returned to normal by now.
Anyone know if this is likely to go away eventually, or what might be causing it?
