scared i have re torn my meniscus
« on: March 23, 2010, 01:13:22 PM »
hi everyone, i have not been on here for a while.
i think i might have damaged the inside of my knee. i have had a long history of meniscus and acl problems since 2002.
in dec 2009 i had my right knee scope but nothing was found so they sent me to a pt who really helped. over the last few months i had been building up strength in my quad muscles.

last wed night i was asked to help lift some equipment at the end of my little boys football training and because my knee felt so good i helped out.
the equipment was quite heavy. 4 hours later i felt something catch in my knee and the next day i could feel catching in my med and lateral areas inside the knee , i also feel poping noises, swelling, i cannot get the rom i was getting unless i ice. my quads are now getting weaker also hammy and calf muscles are getting tighter.
i spoke to my pt by phone last week and she said she will look at it when i see her next.
any thoughts?
