I saw a nurse practitioner (my doctor was out), who manipulated and examined my leg, and sent me home
with really basic home
care instructions, and no new information.
had given me some trouble 3 months earlier, possibly a strained ACL from running too hard. This new injury is much worse. The knee feels unstable when I try to walk, and it feels like it can't support my weight (I'm slim-average). I have full range of motion, but with mild discomfort.
