Suggest treatment for severe pain in the knee

Hi there, I hit my knee really really hard on a sharp edge like 10 hours ago! After 30 minutes it started to feel very painful and now it s so hard to walk, lift my leg, or even bend it also there is a sharp pain on specific spot on the kneecap! I just looked at it and it s pretty swolle! What dose that sound like?And any advice?

Hi i am Dr Ahmed Aly
thanks for using helthcaremagic site ,
for the first 48 hrs try using ice bags on your knee,elevate them as long as you could on a pillow or something topical declophen gels are very helpfull as a painkiller and an antinflammatory drug,antiedematous drugs containing alpha chemotrypsin are recommended with swellings,Xray is needed to be assured its a contusion not a fissure or a torn ligamint or muscle ask your physician for physical examination and investigations if required.

Hope the above information helps you,Thanks for writing into healthcaremagic.
