I am really scared right now. I did too much sport two months ago and my right knee hurt. I went to a physical therapist who tried to fix it. I was diagnosed with tendonitis. It was fine last month, but nine days ago I started kneeling to plug in something and I heard the loudest crack ever. My knee hurt and I was limping, but I stopped limping after three hours and I thought I was fine.
I really thought I had broken something because the crack was that bad. I can still walk, but I felt uneasy about all this so I went to the doctor's. Apparently I have a sprain, I have an x-ray appointment tomorrow.
My knee still hurts (3-4 out of 10 on a pain scale), I try not to walk much; my doctor told me to rest. I put ice on it but it doesn't help all the time, only sometimes. Of course I don't leave the ice on for more than 15 minutes.
I'm very scared right now. I keep hearing this cracking (tearing?) sound in my head. My doctor says I have injured my ligament but he doesn't know how badly it's injured.
It is really bad? What can I do to keep my mind off it until tomorrow?
I have General Anxiety Disorder and will probably have to take benzos soon (in addition to my antidepressant) as I probably won't make it to the x-ray place without fainting otherwise. :(
