Yes in the blink of an eye my knee went one way and my body chose to go the other way!!! The pain took me to the ground. Luckily my husband was with me and got me in the house. Based on the pain, I thought I had done major damage. My local Dr., after x-rays (no bone damage), told me everything I already knew.
Better known as "Rice"
He feels that I strained, stretched, blah, blah, blah the interior collateral ligament.
I now look like this:
No fun at all. I don't take well to sitting down for very long spells....gotta keep moving. I did rest yesterday (because I was hurting so badly) but today I have found ways to move.
I can walk if I squat......can't straighten the knee, that's where the pain is! But do you know how sore squats make you? Try walking like that for an extended period of time.....oh my!
Other option is to use the crutches. Have you ever been on crutches? They are not easy to master and have made me hurt in several more places.....arms, underarms, ribcage.
Everything has a positive side if you look for it. Mine is that I am getting a workout, or my left leg and rear are....ha
Have a good day all....It's ice time, gotta go!
