    See a doctor sounds like you cracked it

    Yeah, I cracked my knee in a motorcycle crash in April, still hurts. Not a lot you can do, unless it's actually split open, but best if it gets X-rayed.

    Seeing a doctor is the best option. I fell going up the stairs one time, and bashed my right kneecap solidly. It hurt for awhile, and kept hurting. I figured I cracked it or something, but it ended up being Patellofemoral Pain Syndrome. Funny thing is, it wasn't the fall that caused it; because I favoured the knee after the fall and placed more support on my left leg, my quadriceps weakened in my right leg, which caused the PFS. I did some strengthening exercises and stretching for a week and it was good as new.

    Whatever it is, the doc'll know.
