Hi all, hope someone can help.
I hurt my knee running over two weeks ago now. I was running along fine and it was a sharp twinge of pain that left me almost unable to walk home. I rested and iced for a couple of days and tried to run again but it was still way too sore (only when running and walking downhill), still resting and icing I waited a week to run again and it was still too sore. Even sore long distance walking and walking down hill. I tried going for a run 2 days ago with my knee bandaged up and it felt good until the way back I could feel a small ache but nothing major. Later that day I could barely walk I was in so much pain! I couldn't bend my knee or anything but the pain felt like it was behind my knee on the back/side of my leg and now it has swollen up and is even worse.. The pain began in my lower knee on the outside of my leg, then moved to above my knee on the same side, then across to the middle/top of my knee inside my leg and the swelling is on the inside above my knee (not on the cap at all and most of the pain has been around the cap)
I booked a doctors appointment but it's over a week away and I'm pretty uncomfortable and also missing a lot of the activities I love! please help
Also can't take anti-inflammatories because I am asthmatic
