Hello, i'm a 24 year old baseball player, and around 3 months ago (approx) I was playing in the outfield and slid on my knees to make a catch (think of it as being on your knees then make your back touch the ground) for all you visual people.
Ok, so it kinda hurt at the time but nothing too much because i can take alot of pain. But now that the season is over and i'm back to work full time, my knee is bothering me. I will explain what hurts and what does not hurt....
if i extend my leg out it does not hurt.
if i squat down it does not hurt, nor on the way up.
if i jump it does not hurt
if i run it does not hurt
if i move side to side it does not hurt
What kills me every single time is when i try to bring my heel up to touch my butt. Or if i were weight lifting "leg curls" would kill me.
Could this be a ligament problem or a bone problem?
I had a doctor take a check at it and he went through range of motions with my knee and i didnt have any pain, so he initially ruled out MCL, PCL, ACL but i've done some research and it all kinda points to PCL problem.
Maybe someone here would have a better idea. Should i go for an X-ray or am i wasting my money?
Thanks in advance.

i figured as much. Thats why I came here first. To see if someone had a similar story as to a clue to where to start looking i guess you can say. I've never had a ligament problem so I can't really tell if thats what is bothering me. I suppose I should get in to see someone because it's starting to play a role in my every day work routine. Think I should get x-ray first then MRI? Kinda clueless as to what step is next but i trust you guys will point me in the right direction.
There is a medical health clinic that i went to 2 weeks ago and he said he can do xrays and imaging right there, its basically like a chiropractic/rehab facility and he's the doctor that did some range of motion tests. Hope he can help.
Thanks for the reply
i'll go this week and check it out
