Advice or insight
« on: February 21, 2005, 06:25:14 PM »
Hi, i was wondering if anyone could help me or maybe have an idea what is wrong..my knee clicks and pops, locks, gives out, is painful for no reason and swells. our school trainer said it could be tears in my meniscus.i fell on it like 4 yrs ago,  I run track and xc. If it is the meniscus how long does it take to get back to normal?

Have you been to an orthopedic surgeon to have it checked out? Otherwise, you are just guessing at a diagnosis. If it is a tear in the meniscus, it will not heal on its own. If you continue doing things that hurt your knee, you could damage it further. I would strongly urge you to see an OS to find out what is really going on.
