Knee Pain - Second Opinion?

I have had knee pain for 36 hours. I don't remember a specific injury, however it began when I was squatting while lifting heavy objects. I have sharp pain when standing up, sitting down, or going up/down stairs. There is a dull pain pretty much all the time and the knee feels weak and loose when I walk. I can also hear a snapping noise when bending the knee. I have never had any pain in this knee prior to 36 hours ago. The pain is waking me up in the middle of the night.

I saw an orthopedic surgeon yesterday who seemed to treat it as a chronic issue. He took an x-ray which looked okay. He gave me some leg exercises to complete and wants to see me in 2 weeks.

I am concerned that this is not a chronic condition and may be an acute injury. Should I get a second opinion before my next appointment in 2 weeks?

Re: Knee Pain - Second Opinion?

Seeing you saw an Orthopedic Surgeon, I would wait the two weeks to see what he says on your return visit...If, you are not satisfied with this visit then you may decided to look further....Don't try and overdo your exercises...It could do more harm than good.....Good luck....ILD....
