6 weeks ago I was running…stepped in a hole, and hyperexteded my knee.
I had recently changed the company I work for and my insurance would be expired in two day… So I went to the emergency room and had my knee xray’d.
The results were negative.
I explained my insurance situation to the doctor and asked his advice.
He said that he saw a little movement in the acl and outer ligament and recomended and MRI but noted that the ligament damage did not appear to be severe.
It has been 6 although I have alot less pain than before… I still feel pain when I lock my knee into an extended position and put most of my weight on it.
The pain seems to be focused on the inside of my knee beneath the knee cap.
I only have a few weeks to decide whether or not to COBRA my health plan. Does this sound like a normal time period to still be experiancing pain in my kneeIs there any test besides an MRI that I can do at home to determine if the meniscus.
