Yesterday, I was at my gym class and twisted my knee oddly where there was a brief discomfort. I continued my workout that included squats. Nothing noticeable aftermy workout. A few hours later as I was sitting at a staff meeting, I noticed significant swelling and stiffnes on the outside of my knee where the IT band starts. I wasn't able to bend the knee to sit but the swelling has subsided somewhat. Still elevating, icing and taking motrin.

I am only 12 years old and I fell in gym class today. My ankle hurts really badly now and I think I need to get it checked out but, my parents won t let me. They told me to ice it and said that I will be fine. When I tried to walk on it, I was almost in tears.

My 14 year old son felt a pain in his left arm and his left hand went numb in gym class after running for a long time. He is a little asthmatic, but said he did not use his inhaler. He is not overweight, but not an athlete either. Should we be concerned?
