I remember now catching myself in a slip on a wet floor by an entrance (we've had some rain). I didn't fall. As MNTWINSGAL suggested, I most likely hyperextended it. I have been resting, icing and elevating. As it is not swollen, I haven't been wrapping it, although I will use a brace next week when I go back to work. Other than Church, I'm resting that knee. The pain level has decreased by about 1/4.
I appreciate the care and concern. As I've had arthritis in my knees for 43 yr and have had bone spurs removed from them in the past, I am no stranger to pain. I, also, am willing to acknowledge when 'something is different' and get appropriate treatment if conservative methods don't work.
