seant46 Thanks for the replys guys.

No I havent seen a chiro but my uncle recommend as well to see one so I might in the future. My knee is slowly getting better I think(Could have been right it just needed more rice). The pain is gone for the most part I'd say but it doesnt feel 'right' and strong like my left knee does. Im hoping this is just them being weak because I can tell the muscles around my right knee are meek right now. Hopefully physio and Ill be all back to normal.

BTW I had an MRI, showed absolutely nothing apparently(according to the mri tech). Im getting a second opinion from a reputable orthopedic surgeon to make sure. After all of the confusion I am pretty sure it is a partially torn medial meniscus(that the mri could have missed). If it is they generally dont heal on their own but sometime they can become non symptomatic and thats what im hoping for so I wouldnt need the surgery. Will know more after july 2nd my appt with the OS.

Because its more of a discomfort or weak feeling these days rather than pain like it was before I have started to do some stuff again. Went rollerblading today but am staying away from skating and tennis just doing low impact sports for now. About time I was getting a gut lol. Hopefully back to 100 percent or close to it by winter with physio or surgery whatevers needed

Deacon All this advice and I didn't see anywhere R.I.C.E. Rest, ice, compression, elevation. It sounds like you still haven't given it the basic care it needs.

paul have you considered seeing a chiropractor who specializes in sports injuries? I chose to see him instead of my GP for my ankle when I hurt it this year on a rail. Was going to slow and I went one way, board the other.. nice twist going on with some swelling. Long story short he confirmed the sprain, did some acupuncture and deep tissue ultrasound therapy and I was on my way. Swelling didn't go away for 3+ weeks; this happened superbowl weekend. It still gets sore after I do any sort of physical activity such as boarding..racquetball etc..

I am in canada and that was also all covered by my insurance.. if not it would have only ran $25 anyway

seant46 Thank you so much for taking time for me and the advice! Ill def keep it updated.

jml22 Good luck, keep me posted
wouldn't hurt to get a second opinion from a PT as well, but find a good one.

seant46 Ok sounds good. My knee honestly isnt very swollen(at least to the naked eye) that might be why I didnt think i would be having this problem last this long. It may sweel a very little bit when I do stuff but its hard to notice if it does, it looks pretty normal to the outside

jml22 Medical service plan for incomes under forgot what lol.
Here's what my plan for you would be in person:
Find out how long itll be for the "free" MRI via manitoba health care.
If it's longer than a month start calling private imaging centers and plead your case.Find out your parents medical plan and find out if you're covered under them still.

When you plead your case, make sure you're talking to someone who can actually change the price. So if you call, plead your case and the person says they can't change the price, ask to speak to someone who can and then plead your case again.

If that fails, and your wait time is like 3 months or something stupid. maybe think about biting the bullet. Pretty much you want to rule out an ACL tear, but i don't think it's that because your knee would have swelled up really badly when you hurt it. To get your MRI, you might have to go back to your doctor, tell him about the night pain and how it keeps you up. Shit even remind him you're 21 and it's been 2 months you've had this pain lol. Drop the alarm bells on him so he will take you seriously.

Is your knee still swollen or does it swell up when you do stuff?
For now i'd go on crutches and do quad sets for sets of 10, 3-5 times a day everyday.

seant46 Im in manitoba lol. Ill see if im covered under my dads company. Sorry what does MSP mean? this is a whole new experience for me this injury.

jml22 Parents?
Youll be covered under them still if you're living at home or still labelled as a dependent.
If not you can go through MSP depending on what province you're in.
