YANMD filter - did something weird to my knee, but I don't know what. and 24 hours later it doesn't hurt - just feels "different." What, if any, first aid should I be doing?
The initial injury was: I was trying to squeeze past someone into a chair, and was twisting funny. I twisted my right knee just a bit too far and felt, but did NOT hear, a tiny "pop" sensation in the back of the knee and felt some pain for a few seconds. But - any pain was mild, and went away fairly fast. I kept seated and occasionally tested things by bending and wiggling my knee, and it stayed pain-free the rest of the day; when I got up, I was still pain-free and able to walk totally normally. I still iced it when I got home and took some Ibuprofen, to be safe, but walked around just fine.
Today, the back of that knee feels...stiff. No pain, no swelling, and I can walk around and pursue normal activity just fine (in fact, I had a very long walk today with another MeFite). It still feels like there's some weird stiffness in the back of my knee, as if I just needed to give it a really good stretch or something.
Poking it, it almost feels like that spot is "watery," like I've got a Baker's Cyst,
but I don't see
any swelling in the spot.
Right now, I've been just taking it easy when I can, but if there's anything else I should be doing? (Of course, if there is any pain, I'll call my doctor.)
