I am a 35-year-old male, weight 162 pounds, and height" 5 feet and 11 inches. I am trying to avoid going to a doctor/hospital due to the current pandemic situation, but my left knee has progressively gotten worse over the last 2.5 months. I am not 100 % sure what caused the pain, as I play disc golf (have not played since this happened) and at the time my dog ran full speed into the inside of my knee causing to tumble over. Symptoms over last couple months/ what I can or cant do. I have no issues with putting weight on it, no buckling, movement issues or anything like that No swelling. Have never had any swelling I have intense pain on the upper outside of left knee. Looking at pictures, I swear this is either meniscus or LCL as far as what is in that region. The ONLY time my knee feels any pain is after i unbend my leg and straighten it out. The pain is sharp as if someone was stabbing me above/outside my knee. The is a dull pain that spreads out across the top portion of my knee cap. this all subsides usually within 2-3 minutes. Meds do nothing, ice has done nothing (again no swelling or any other obvious signs) Everything I have read seems to not give me many answers as the common symptoms seem to be non existent, yet there is obviously something wrong. Normally I would have no issue going up to a doctor or hospital to have everything looked at, but I am trying to put this off as hospital staff are already in short supply.
