What causes pain and throbbing sensation in the back of the left knee?
Possible soft tissue injury of popliteal region
I can certainly understand your concern
This health issue of yours might have been really frustrating.
Considering your symptoms, the possibility of hematoma or a soft tissue injury of the popliteal region
(back of the calf) is very high in view of the recent trauma (slippage on the rug).
A short course of analgesic medication like Diclofenac sodium and Serratiopeptidase combination will help.
Additionally, it's very important to get an X-ray of affected limited including the knee joint to rule out fracture/dislocation/hematoma/soft tissue injury.
Please check with your physician if he shares my view and if can prescribe these medications and test to you.
Further management if any is largely based on test results.
