Should i go see a doctor for my knee or should just let heal it self

My left knee hurt after getting up at the library shelf

i was looking at something at bottom and when i got up i hear crack noise and for few i feel it went all the way to my feet and was not walking right for few mins.
it was two days ago.. and i stay off my leg yesterday and today i stand for few hours with no rest.

when i bend my knee it hurt or when i try to put pressure on the knee it hurts to climb on to bed it hurts.

i feel like i have to put straight and it doesn't hurt that much.

it not swollen

  • I'm a nurse and I wouldn't go to a doc. But that's just me. Try to ice it, don't put pressure on it (like kneeling, or crawling), but do not stay completely off of it either...walking should be okay. Take some ibuprofen if you can. And call me in the morning. That will be $20, please. ;)
