Re: Knee problem from fall

Hi Emily

I wish I had answers for you. Interestingly enough, I had a similar fall on May 30th. I'm experiencing the same symptoms as you. It's so discouraging. The bruising took almost 3 weeks to heal, but the knee stil has problems. I've been debating about going to the doctor. I figured that I should give it some time, but lately nothing has changed. I may call the doctor next week. I wish you all the best and a quick recovery! One thing I've been taking that has helped a bit is Arnica Montana, it's a homepathic tablet found at the local health food store. Just thought I'd share that! Take Care!!!!
