So I hurt my knee 3 years ago and after about a year very rarely even thought about it anymore until last weekend when I got the same exact injury. Both occurred when I intended for my left foot to slide on the clay I was playing on, but hit a dry spot so my foot stopped and my knee turned too far inward. It is a left knee injury and my entire knee got swollen, but with ice and ibuprofen the swelling is almost gone. The worst pain is on the outside ligament (maybe tendon?) but I have to really bend my leg to feel it now. I can't read these medical descriptions very well, so I'm just wondering exactly what I did. Last time I hurt it, I was out for almost a month. This time, I'm going to try some doubles after an 8 day layoff because it is not nearly as bad. It stiffens up on me when I sit for a while, but once I get moving I barely notice any pain.
