First, why did you fall from bed. Was it nocturnal seizure, sleep disorder (REM, PLMS, myoclonus)? Regarding knee, uncover if small patellar fracture or cartilage problem. Consults with neurology and orthopedics in order. Do not drive, do activities at heights, use power equipment until all of this is clarified.
