The pain is behind my knee and not the knee itself. It hurts only when the leg is being extended.
The injury occurred 2 weeks ago and very, very slowly getting better...
I haven't ran or walked (other than coming into work) since the injury.
Any idea what I could have done and any suggestions to speed up recovery?
Since it is slooowly getting better, I haven't gone to the doctor, yet...
I once had a similar thing happen and it turned out that one or more vertebrae had twisted just enough to put pressure on my sciatic (sp?) nerve. Before I got to a chiropractor I bought a knee support because it felt like you describe. FWIW
As suggested previously seek professional medical help as soon as you can.
Good luck getting back to health!
