Doctor :   Ok, is the pain this time spontaneous or you had any injury ?

Doctor :   Since the pain in the last year has subsided soon, ligament injury cannot be ruled out , such pains are reversible if there is any minor amount of strain in the joint

Doctor :   i would suggest you not to rush for xray now first go for immobilization by applying CREPE bandage and so,e pain killers to bring down your pain
Doctor :   Apply the crepe bandage for 2 weeks if the pain does not subside then you can go for xray
