My right knee has been bothering me since Sat. Hurts to go up&downstairs. I did alot of walking and climbing stairs this past week. Some advice please?
RICE: Hard to be sure without knowing where it hurts and examining you. In general a brief trial of Rest Immobilization Compression and Elevation may help.
