    FIrstly, i know that it’s impossible to say without seeing it and there’s so many things it could be. I fell in the snow and twisted my left knee, the inside clicked about 3-4 times and it was so painful I took about 5 minutes to get up ( I have quite a high pain tolerance) I managed to walk home with my friend helping me. It’s quite swollen. It’s hurting just below my knee on the inside. When I put weight on it it feels like pressure in the same place. Any ideas of what jt is or how I could make it better? Thanks

    Try some ice and medical help. Use NHS on the Go if you can't get to a doctor.

    I’m scared to go to a doctor - I really don’t like doctors and hospitals. What’s NHS on the go?

    There wasn’t a lot on there, just that most knee pain can be treated at home and see the gp If it’s really bad. Thank you

    You may have damaged a tendon or ligament if it's at the knee?
    You should definitely see a doctor soon

    Edit: this is probably on the extremes but you may need surgery for it hence the need to see a doctor. Probably not that serious but if there has been damaged to the structures of the knee, a doctor will need to set it right.

    Yeah that’s what I’m thinking. I will go to the doctor or hospital soon But it’s still more snow coming down and I’m scared it will need surgery
