Well despite the dr making me feel like he thought nothing was wrong he actually wrote lateral meniscus tear on the MRI request form. Results will be back with dr within the week so just got to wait for another appointment now. Pain is getting worse still as the days go past so think I need to keep off legs for whole weekend.

well, ice the knee if it helps, and wait and see. you can try pressing along the joint line - from the bend of the knee in back towards the middle of the kneecap in front, and feel where things meet up, and if you feel pain along that joint line - then you could have an issue. its one clue they look for - joint line pain is an indicator of meniscus issues.
