I don't know how I did it but I have pulled a ligament on the outside of my knee. Have a bath last night and it did feel a bit achy. However woke up this morning with a limp. Seen my gp and he said there was nothing I could do except rest and take Nurofen as it can take up to 6 weeks to heal.
It is so painful
BH you poor thing. I think we are coming out in sympathy with each other. I have trapped a nerve or something in my back/hip. Have been in agony all day. Maybe we should crack open a bottle of vino and a packet of Ibuprofen and have a party!
fell over ! thought I'd just sprained ankle, but was just agony in night and swelled up, so went to casualty, xray,and doc said I had torn ligaments across top of ankle, and side, and pulled a bit bone too, but the ligaments are the important bit, and need to be kept stable to heal. I will need physio afterwards (he says) as well! fed up!
