I know I should just go to a doctor and I know I'm about to solicit medical advice on an internet forum. It's dumb, but I thought I'd ask anyways.
I went heavy on back squats to do a 10x3. Hadn't done that with squats before. It was tough and there was a small pop in my left knee while I was doing them. No pain. Then the next day, I experienced pain in my left knee. I only felt the pain when climbing stairs. Not a problem going down the stairs. There was no swelling.
I can walk around fine and I can get up the stairs by hopping a little bit. I've taken a week off of leg work and it's better. I still get a little pain now and then on the stairs, but only when I'm carrying something. Body weight is fine.
Any ideas? Good rehab suggestions? I've been lifting for about 1 1/2 years. Iï¿½??m 36 and this is my first ever knee problem. It's got me a little spooked.
