Patient : About 3 months ago I tripped and fell full body weight on my knee. At the time there was no swelling only bruising and pain, however, everytime I kneel or place weight on my knee I experience a shooting nerve like pain where I fell.
When I run my finger over the area with any pressure, I get the same shooting pain. There's an ever so slight bump or something in the area, but once again, no swelling. Is it possible I chipped a piece of my knee cap or is it just a damaged nerve? The pain level has been the same since 3 months ago.
It's only interferring with my fitness activities and on it's own right doesn't impact day to day activities.
Thanks for your feedback.
