My Knees Give Way
I'm having bad knee pain. Would wrapping it with an ACE bandage work or something more serious. My knee pain is: feels like its gonna give out; pain?
Start with RICE: I'm sorry to hear of your discomfort. Did you injury your knee? Regardless, i recommend you start with rice, and the "c" can be accomplished with the ace bandage you mentioned. With the sensation that your knee is going to "give out" you should plan to see an orthopedist, especially if it does not get better soon. You may need bracing, an injection, pt, or surgery depending on severity of injury. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer

It may be that you hurt more tomorrow than you do today. As long as it is not getting worse, just watch it and decrease your workout intensity until you are back to baseline. Otherwise, see a doctor. ...Read more

Sprained ligament: You may have sustained an injury to one of the important stabilizing ligaments of your knee.
