Maybe nerve injury: When you fell you may have hit a nerve and injuries it. With initial trauma you should ice for about 36 hours. After that you can use heat. If the numbness persists it would be wise to see your physician

It's up to you: Our bodies can take a certain amount of trauma and will heal without intervention. If you fall and hurt your knee, but you are able to walk without pain and any swelling or impact site pain is improving, then your body is most likely healing very well its your own. If you are concerned that you have seriously injured yourself in some way, you can always see a doctor if you would like to.
