Urgent! in soo much pain


Q: Sunday evening while I was trying to get through the Atlanta airport I fell down the escalator. All the way down. At the moment I was trying so hard to not miss my flight I kept walking despite the pain. I arrived at home had ice on it, kept it wrapped. Its very swollen and red, purple. The pain is no longer acute to when Im standing anymore either. I can hardly stand or put any pressure on my right knee. I can walk but when it bends its incredibly painful. I woke up this morning and the pain is much worse. Its throbbing. Could this be just a bad fall and I bumped my knee or are theyre other injuries that can occur to the knee that cause you to be imobile.?
