Knee Injury [Pain, Swallowed, Warm]


Q: The first time i felt the pain on my knee (After a jump, i feel into the ground with huge pain on my knee, i heard a pop and it got very swallowed the next days. Even though i could walk, i felt huge pain for the next 4 days.) I rested for like 5 months, and after the first soccer match (1 week ago), i felt again with a huge pain on my knee, and it swallowed a lot for the next days, it was also always warmer than the other knee. I am about to see a orthopedist in 10 days but i have an important match in a couple days, and my team needs me considering i am the considered the best player. I always played soccer in my life and i am devastated and scared about this. I bought a strong and good quality knee cap, do you think i can play this match without any damage? Also, do you think i can possibly have ACL or other related injury? Thanks.
