Hi Steph,
I think you should go to the Doctor. I can relate to your story and I have also posted below about my right knee. When I was 23 yrs old(I'm 38 now) I was tripped and fell on a down hill road landing right on my knee. I actually had a abrasion and bruise and I didn't go to the Doc. I figured it was no big deal. Well I am paying for it now. Through the years I had the same problems you describe, everytime I hit it, it hurt so bad and I limped for days. About 6 yrs ago my knee started making this cracking sound and it hurt walking up hills, stairs, anything that wasn't flat. I was diagnosed with Osteoarthritis in other joints of my body so I figure it is in the knee too. Now I am having major problems with my knee locking and severe pain. I do not know what will happen from here but if I would of went to the Doc along time ago I think I would of nipped this unforseeing problem in the butt. I will probably need surgery now. Good Luck and even if your knee is OK let the doctor tell you! Raven
