I injured my knee two days ago while running on a treadmill and now my knee is swollen, tight, and making clicking noises. It doesn't really hurt and I can walk on it, but it just doesn't feel "right". I called the orthopedic clinic to see what they suggest I do (I'm trying to avoid going in unless it's not getting any better at home). The nurse told me it sounds like a torn meniscus and to ice it for 20 minutes at a time, rest and keep it elevated and take and anti-inflammatory like alieve. Icing it's not a problem but keeping it resting and keeping it elevated is hard with a fussy, teething 6 month old. Also, I didn't think of it at the time, but I thought NSAIDS like Alieve weren't safe to take while breastfeeding. Is there anything I can take for the swelling that's safe?
