Before I go to the doctor....
« on: September 09, 2014, 10:19:52 am »
....I figured I would ask Stucknutters for advice.

My inner knee is in pain. 
It feels stiff (so does my knee) and it might be a little swollen.
I read that it could be a minor MCL tear.

What should I do about it?

I hear this type of injury can lead to punching the shit out of your wife in an elevator.

Well, with a sore knee I will likely take an elevator instead of stairs.   :uhh

What happens when you wrap it to stabilize it?

i havent tried.  i havent done anything with it yet. 

i tweaked it while jogging on a trail but kept running on it, despite the pain.  im dumb.
this happened a week ago.

i tried to jog on a track last night and it never really loosened up, and still felt a slight pain.
i figured the pain would of gone away by now.

It's definitely not torn, it would be hella swollen and you'd be in considerable pain.

I'm guessing it's a slight sprain. Ice it for 20 minutes 3x a day while elevated and take some Motrin, that'll help both the pain and swelling. Get a neoprene sleeve and throw it on when you're walking around, little extra support is also a great pain manager. I've had 4 knee surgeries and have a reconstructed ACL in my right knee, been down this road a few times :koolaid
