Patient :Yesterday during gym class I was tripped and I fell on my knee and scraped it on our freshly waxed floor. Immediately it started to bleed. I went to the nurse and notice I couldnt feel anything on the injury. Today when I woke up I was alarmed. The scrape is still numb I cant feel a single thing but I can feel around it. My knee is extremely swollen. And is bruised pretty bad Im concerned this is more than a simple scrape on the knee. Please Help.
