  1. Hi..
    Thanks for the query..

    Such injuries can commonly cause meniscal tears..

    But for a confirmation an x ray should be done..

    For now elevate the leg, do cool compresses, avoid exertion and take anti inflammatory painkillers like Ibuprofen

    Hope this helps..

    Regards..

  2. Hi.It seems you have suffered meniscal tear in knee.See an orthopaedician and get a Xray done to confirm the cause.Rest,ice compression and leg elevation will help .Take some over the counter anti inflammatory drug till you see an Orthopaedician.
