Exactly a week ago, I slipped on our tile floor and in trying to break my fall, I landed on my left knee. There was this severe burning in my knee, which seemed to last forever. I had a bruise and some swelling, but both seem to be going away. However, I can barely touch my knee because the burning sensation comes back. If I gently bump my knee against something it hurts bad. I've thought that perhaps I fractured something, but I don't have any trouble walking. Should I let time heal it, or should I have it checked out? :confused::confused::confused: Any advice is greatly appreciated!
