My knee began to hurt after I was on my knees for a while changing a tire.

I fell off of a 10 speed bike (first time trying to ride in at least 30 years), stopped too suddenly and couldn't get my foot off the pedal fast enough to stand. I fell on gravel directly on my knee. It bled for 3 hours even with light pressure, could not walk on it and hot red swelling ensued. Went to the doctor and got x-rays- no break but extremely painful. Was put on Ceflaxin, moist heat and painkillers that didn't touch the pain. Crutches. Was told to see an Orthopedist. Didn't go because of $$ (no insurance) and work.

I am a 34 year old mother of four. I was run over (by my own car) about a month ago from foot to just below the knee. I know my lower leg and foot were x-rayed at the hospital but I do not believe my knee was. Now that I am able to bend my ankle again from the sprain I received I am unable to bear any weight on my knee when in a kneeling position like putting children into car seats. The pain is severe when trying to put weight on it and will hurt for several minutes after I move from that position however there is no pain at any other time.

Knee was popping when I was walking a few days ago. No it hurts when I walk. Getting up from a sitting position is the worst thing. The pain is more severe when I rest it, then try to walk. It is not painful any other time.
