this morning, I went to sit down and as i was going down and my left knee buckled twisted in cracked twice wicked loud and i collapsed, it hurt SO MUCH and now i can't walk on it or bend it without excrusiating pain.

What happened?

what can i do to fix it or lessen the pain?

oh and i either tore a muscle in or sprained my right wrist, what do you guys reccomend to keep it strong while i can play mah geetarre?

i go to the doctor's tomorow to get everything checked out

I got a sprained wrist right now....and I'm wearing a tensor band to keep it stiff and strong...

Gonna sound un-metal but don't play the guitar for a bit, you dont want to use those muscles too much if you have weakened them. Thats one way to get carple tunnel.

A friend of mine did something like that to her knee, her sisters sat on it as a kid and there was a crunch. Turned out she dislodged some bone and then it fused together etc, now she has trouble walking. Getting it check out is a good move.

Take a pain killer especially for anti-inflammatory. They should help more than just Tylenol.

It happened to me... the first time when I was covering needled 24/7 and I was doing this weird thing with my leg and then BAM! but thankfully whatever happened to my knee... well it got back into position. Anyway, the second time it happened to me at my highschool prom... worst experience ever. The two experiences were about a year apart, anyways, the doctor recommended I strengthen my thigh muscles and some other crap.... and to relieve the pain well.... u're basically screwed....

Ive been off school for over a week now because of a knee injury. Some people think its fun jump around like douchebags and name it hardcore dancing...

Someone kicked the side of my knee and dislocated it, i've been wearing this huge ass leg brace for like... 10 days, i'm going back to the doctor in about half an hour just so he can give me some leg exercises because my leg is weak as ass, i can even lift my foot at the moment.

Hopefully it healed ok and i dont need a knee reconstruction

My post still stands faggots

He asked what happened - no one knows WE ARE NOT DOCTORS

He asks how to relieve the pain - take some damn painkillers and if they arent enough then you SEE A DOCTOR...not post on a forum full of idiots
