Greetings, i knelt onto my right knee only to find a sharp tool stabbing my knee. I rolled my knee in an attempt to relieve the sudden pain.

When this happened my head pushed into the wall rather slowly, as my knee was searchinng for a non painful surface my head ended up bring pushed North West so to speak almost in a rolling motion. this was not a fast or heard process.However there were a couple of popping sounds as if popping a knuckle.

i continued moving about with no pain for about 20 minutes. Then about an hour later i noticsd i have slight pain about 2/10 pain. and an uneasy kinked feeling in my neck where tge wall pressed my head.

My question is what does it sound like happened? when should i go to the hospital?

Brief Answer:
Wait and see

Detailed Answer:
Hi Turnkey316,

It sounds completely benign, and you probably just "sprained" your neck. If you can turn your head 45 degrees right and left, I suggest you wait it out for a few days using aspirin as pain relief. If the pain worsens or you experience nausea you should see a doctor. Please let me know how it goes.

Best wishes.
