i have had some serious difficulties with a knee injury from several years ago and my las mri 4 years ago mentioned a n indication of a possible meniscus tear with a 5 cm cyst. i have had to use a knee brace for the past 3 years almost constantly. according to the mri they said that was "normal". a friend said there might bee anything from ruptured tendon to torn or shattered cartilage and ligaments.  but every time i stand up both knees will pop like your snapping a pencil. but i have the most trouble with the left knee. the last injusry to it was the femur twisted inward and the tibia twisted outward. and i counted at least 4-6 pops in the joint in a matter of 2-3 seconds. just wondering what kind of damage can occur from this.  and any time i step to the right the left knee will pop or snap. please help me out.i have an appointment on april 20 for a referral for another mri. please resond before then. e-mail me if you can.
