My guess would be a cartilage injury that maybe isn't seen on MRI.
I had the same problems like you have. With scoping the knee the cartilage defect was found and I had microfracture which gave me 4-5 years. Unfortunately I need to do something more now.

Microfracture is just one of many different surgeries you can have for cartilage damages. The surgeon makes very small holes, called microfractures in the bone where the damaged cartilage is. Your body starts to create a new surface after that. But it is never like the cartilage you had before.

But first of all you need to find out what is wrong with your knee. Bone bruising can also be very painful and takes time to heal.

Bone bruising can indeed take a long time to heal if severe - 3-6 months, possibly even longer - up to 12 months.  Kneeling on bruised bone will certainly hurt a lot.  I had severe bone bruising to my fmur - I had 2 MRIs 5 months apart - it appeared to have gone by the second one

Can you straighten your leg?  Is it sore along the joint like between the shin and thigh bone, or only around the kneecap

Best to wait for the second opinion before getting too worried - knee injuries are often very slow to heal.  I would avoid kneeling and any qactivity that affects the knee until you know what's what

Good luck :)

when i was 15 had had a bad rugby injury and have always had problems since then the reason i did not have an operation then was the oc thought is would be better to heal on its own bad choice looking back.

when i stand its not it not streight and then clicks when i force it its painful and they are getting more frequent there is pain on the outside of my knee where everything meets in the joint.

What did you / the injury do to the knee?  Surgery may not have been appropriate or available
