I did it again...hurt my knee

I stepped wrong out of my Jeep and I tweaked a knee. Nothing serious, I hope. I think just twisted it.

It s a long standing issue for a few decades. (Like since five)

Yup, resting, icing, height, compression...know the drill, I just hate the fact that I will have to remain off it for a while. (Two to ten days defending how badly I tweaked it). I just hope I can avoid the doctor.

(And I needed to vacuum, drats)

2. Oh trust me I do. Messy conures.

She crashed, (the conure) against the table, so keeping an eye on her too. Checked her, she seems ok.

3. Have you tried

comfrey ointment? It helps with sub-cu injuries and promotes ligament and tendon tissue healing while minimizing the pain... a co-op or the like might have some. I make it myself and use it when needed for rotator cuff problems. You just can't use it every day long term. You can use it for a few days then take a break from it for a few and alternate. Try it, it could rescue you from the doctor and help you get back on your feet quicker than you thought. If you can't find any, PM me and I'll give you a couple recipes.

At any rate, I hope it goes away fast.

5. It should, the pain is not that bad

It will be bad tomorrow, ok just a little worst.

Usually icy hot helps a lot when I do this...thanks for the reminder. I strained it...but it has not swollen (it rarely does any longer)

8. That sort of thing can surprise you! I know 'cause I used to catch for co-rec softball.

Everything just going on like normal in other daily activities and then all of a sudden, for no apparent, or unusual, reason whatsoever, BOOM! pain!!!

7. Ouchy

I hope your knee gets better fast!

One thing that helped my knee problem last fall was arnica gel. It also helped when I fell and landed on the fingers of my left hand in December. Very good for bumps, bruises and swelling, but should not be used on cuts or scrapes.

Our supermarket (Giant in Maryland) started selling Boiron's Arnicare recently, but if it's not available in your local supermarkets, try Vitamin Shoppe or GNC.

9. Henry's should.

And yesterday I was shocked at the common remedies (from Mexico, which Arnica s) at Target.
