If you look at my two knees, you can see that the right has an area of what looks like swelling. You can feel it, too, there's an area of raised skin that isn't there on my other knee. Pressing down does not cause pain, but my knee definitely has this dull ache and I haven't done anything today. If I'm doing anything active the area with the raised skin is also where the most pain tends to be.
This has been there for at least a few days.
If it helps, there was a past injury on the knee. We went to the Doctor's and they said it was a bone bruise, so we wrapped it and iced it. That was a long time ago, probably at least two years ago by now.
I'd like to avoid going to the doctor's if possible...
Thanks for any help!
