Hello Doctor,
Hope all is good with you!

I'am 34years old male, I fell on my knees maybe 8 days ago.....what i noticed immediately was pain in both knees, the fall was basically just tripping and landing on my knees.

The left knee having more pain. stretching the knee was not possible i would say like 65%, after 2 days the pain subsided drastically but i could not stretch the left knee completely without some pain now i would say it was like 75%.

Now its 8 days i can stretch it more, however not 100%, maybe at 90% i would say....the right knee now is completely fine, no pain and i can stretch it but the left knee is where am still having problems....should i take any meds?, or resting and elevating it is all i need to do...i wanted to go to a doctor for an xray but cant afford it at the moment unfortunately.....appreciate your input....thank you

Thank you for asking at Ehealth forum!

I read your question and I understand your concern.
Just take pain killer like advil.
Avoid strenuous excercise.
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.
