I know the general response will be to go see a doctor for an x-ray, however there's not one in town for another 2 weeks as he flys in between small communities way up north... Just seeing if anyone else has had this...
Blew my tool placement on a hard mixed climb yesterday, the sudden shift in body weight onto my knee in a contorted position created quite the sensation of pain. Had to slowly finish the climb, collapsed afterword, lots of pain, however was able to do the long 2 hour posthole walk home.
Pain's pretty constant, but bearable at the moment, leg stiff and sore. I can move around, walk up and down stairs, leg can flex, not without pain, but can still flex. No swelling or bruising, but did ice it most of the night and trying to stay off of it, wrapping it as well. Major pain comes when I twist the leg and straighten it out completely.
First thing that came to mind was that it was painful like a dislocation that popped back into place as well as I've had that happen with my arm and it feels someone similar. Since I'm 2 weeks away from the doctor and x-ray though, does anyone have experience with ACL injuries? Would I be able to do anything if it was an ACL - since for the next 2 weeks if at all possible and the weather's nice, I'll want to be in the hills, but not if there's a chance it's an ACL injury.
