Patient :I fell on my knee during ice skating and I could barely get up after I fell. It felt like it gave way because usually when I fall on my knee it just causes a bruise. I have iced it and elevated it and it is now swollen. I can't completely straighten my knee and I can't bend it a lot either. Should I go to the doctor?
Symptoms: Swelling, can't straighten or bend it, can't but a lot of weight on it.
