Knee pressure in my knee cap and in the back of my knee.

A dog was coming at me to attack. I took off running and tripped over a chair in the dark and landed on my knees. I noticed that above the scrape on my knee i have two knots. When i get up and walk i feel a lot of pressure in my knee cap and in the back of my knee. Im just wondering what might cause those knots and should I go to the emergency room?

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and i understand your concern. Tripping and fall might have led to some inflammation. get the knee examined and evaluated to rule out any injury to the ligament.

I hope it helps. Stay in touch with your healthcare provider for further guidance as our answers are just for education and counselling purposes and cannot be an alternative to actual visit to a doctor.
Take care
