what injury do i have

Question: what injury do i have

Hyperextended knee while running and stepped into depression. Felt like I sprained my lower leg with a pain in knee and back of calf muscle. Eventually turned into acute pain in outside of shin radiating into top of foot. Have loss of strength in lower leg and warm sensation in back of leg behind knee. Extreme radiating pain in shin and ankle when driving car. waiting for MRI.

Answer:

While waiting for your MRI you should definitely be putting cold compresses on your knee, calf and ankle. Cold will bring down any inflammation you have and will help ease the pain. Healing will always take longer if there is inflammation present.
