While warming up with an empty bar before working my way up to my working set weight, I got a bit careless, squatted down fast and slightly twisted outwards while exploding up. This resulted in a sensation that something cracked or popped followed by a sharp pain that dulled almost immediately.
I tried squatting back down but was greeted with pain in the outter region of my right knee.
Pain only seems to occur if i push my knee outward, going down stairs or squating down. No pain at all if im just standing there, even with full wight on the leg. My stance is relatively wide as my femurs are pretty damn long.
No swelling or bruising. I suspect either a sprain or a meniscus tear but that seems less likely.
Anybody familiar with the symptoms? Admittedly i'd rather rule stuff out before rushing to a doctor and paying a fortune in the process.
