Get an Xray: If you fell and have pain in your knee, and continue to have a hard time walking after an hour or so, you should go to the nearest health facility and get an xray of your knee to ensure there is no broken bone. If no break, use ice, rest, anti inflammatory medication, and elevation to help the injury heal. if it continues to bother you despite this, I would go see an orthopedic dr near you
