Patient :About a week ago I fell over in my figure skating lesson onto my knee and it has bruised quite badly (it went dark blue to now green) and since then I feel a sharp pain in the left side of my right knee when I bend it over 90 degrees. It is also extremely painful to kneel, and not just because of the bruise because i am used to bruises of this sort on my knees, I've just never had a pain arise from them before. Also, when I first did it I found it painful to put pressure on my knee to walk but it's easier to walk now but still painful.
