On Christmas Day I was about to hop in to the pool and I stumbled as I put my foot down on the step (just clumsy LOL hadn't even had a drink yet!) and cracked my knee on the step, hard, right on the knee cap. The immediate pain brought tears to my eyes, but the pain settled to only hurting if I touched the knee. Two days later it still hurts a lot to touch the knee cap, to the point where I get woken up if I touch the knee on the bed etc. I can move it OK and it doesn't hurt if I don't touch it, but there's a funny pins-and-needles sensation in the knee when I bend it. No obvious swelling and no bruising.
Would you go to the doc?
