I'll keep it going with the icing, and try the tennis ball massage. Problem is, I don't have to go see an orthos...all my docs are booked up. Hopefully this just gets better...I doubt this is anything that serious requiring surgery...like if i tore my meniscus or something.
In the quad, eh?

You didn't say that in your original post.... only thing you said was that there was pain under your patella which is not consistent with tendonitis.

Tendonitis is generally overuse anyway, and not acquired from one session acutely. If you had been working hard, it's possible that the Muay Thai aggravated it somewhat, but I still wouldn't think that is the case. Could just be the bruise though, eh.

Can you upload a picture of where it hurts? And describe if it's primarily bone/tendon/muscle/etc. + a more comprehensive explanation of what exercises hurt?
