My Knee

Hey everyone, not sure if this is the right section but here goes.

I don’t know exactly what I did but my knee hurts when there is pressure applied to it and when I bend my knee and extend it again the knee cap cracks. When it is kept extended or if I’m just walking it doesn’t hurt.

I can’t train my legs since this happened and I’m just wondering if anyone knows whats wrong before I go to some physiotherapist first.

where does it hurt exactly? is the pain directly beneath your kneecap? i have pain in that area and turns out it’s patellar tendonitis. google it and see if the symptoms are what you’re experiencing.

I’ve been having similar pains that came up because of several collisions with other people’s knees while playing basketball…I should google this as well.

First guess, tendonitis, though go and have it checked out to be sure.

Thanks guys, I’m definately gonna go check it out.
