Maybe: When you fall onto your knee, many structures can be affected/injured. Best to see doctor for re-evaluation of your knee, especially because pains has become worse and symptoms have changed. Without examining you, not really able to provider much more info or help. Sorry. Best of luck with this. Dr R
