I'm new on this forum. I've had a long history of TMS related pains (stomach, eyes, back, wrist, feet, you name it). Two weeks ago, I was involved in a car accident and I hit my kneecap under the dashboard. It was very painful for two days (although there was very little inflammation), I could barely walk, but I was pleasantly surprised when I woke up, on the third morning, and the pain had virtually disappeared. There was still some lingering pain, but it was not interfering with my daily activities.

Then, four days later, as I was car hunting to find a used car, I hit my patella on the side of a table at a dealership and the pain came back with a vengeance. And since then, 4 days later, it's been constant and with more inflammation around the patella (although I wouldn't say there's a lot of it).

What really bugs my mind is how the pain was almost gone on the third morning after the accident, but is now staying with me after slightly hurting my kneecap on a table. Any insight?
