Newbie and need some advice please!
« on: April 11, 2014, 12:12:15 AM »
I don't know if this is the right section because I am new here, but I just need some advice on what may be going on from others. A little background is I literally just stood up really awkwardly on my right leg and I thought I heard a pop and couldn't put any weight on it. Later that day I could finally extend my knee all the way and heard yet another pop and I could manage to limp on it. I still can't squat or bend it more than 90 degrees and hurts to lock my knee. It has been a week and it hasn't really gotten any better, but no swelling or bruising. I went to the orthopedist and am scheduled for an MRI next week sometime. They gave me a brace and it helps to walk a little bit. I just need to know if it could be anything serious like an ACL tear or MCL tear.

I don't think anybody here can help you, because there is nothing we could do other than making some wild guesses...

I know you must be anxious to get answers, but you will have to wait for the MRI to come out...

Good luck!
