Slipped and fell on left knee cap 2 days ago

Hello, I slipped and fell on my left knee cap 2 days ago. There is a pretty big bruise on the right side of the knee cap, it does hurt to walk and there is shooting pain down my leg to my ankle. I can sit in one position for a couple minutes then the pain comes back. Do I need to see a doctor?

Hello There..
welcome to healthcare magic forum..
Do you have any swelling?redness in the area?
You could try out pain killers for the pain but if doesn't reduce with the pain killer you need to consult a doctor and get a x ray done..
Hope this helps.
Take care..
