A week and a half ago, I was trying to bring my sons small dirt bike into the garage. I accidentally gave it gas and I was so caught off guard by the quick response of the dirt bike I panicked and couldn’t let go of the throttle. Well I came to a point I have to let go otherwise I was going to crash, so I bailed off the bike. When doing so I came down hard on both of my knees on concrete.
The pain was instant and intense. I tried to tuffen up and walk it off.
I’ve been waiting for nasty brusies to come and I haven’t seen anything near what I’ve been expecting. When I go to sit down/bend my knees there is pretty severe pain. Once I’m sitting it goes away. Then when I go to stand there is that serve pain and then the pain intensifies as weight/pressure is applied for about a good 2-5 minutes were I wince and get weak in the knees because of the pain. Then it all passes and I don’t feel anything, it just goes away, unless I go into a sitting position again.
However, on a pain scale to touch or bump my knee caps is between 8-10, i puts me through the roof for a good 30secs to a minute until I can regain my composure.
Does this type of pain sound familiar to anything specific? Could it maybe just a bad bump and bruise and needs time to heal? How long should I wait before I go see a doctor?
