Hi everyone, about 2 years ago i injured my knee playing playing basketball. I went to the emergency doctor to get it checked out and after some x-rays he determined that there was no structural damage to my knee and that i probably "tweaked" the ligaments(not sure what that means) and that i would be fine. I naively believed him and 3 months later the same thing happened, this time i was on vacation, so i opted to wait a week until i could go see my family doctor. He determined that there was no broken bones or damaged ligaments, because i was not feeling any pain during his physical tests. Because of the time between the injury and my visit he couldn't really diagnose me with anything and recommended some basic exercises for my legs and said i should follow up i had more problems. A year later my knee was still in pain and finally got to see a sports medicine doctor. She determined that i likely dislocated my kneecap both times and that i am suffering from patellofemural pain syndrome. She said that there's not much she could do but recommend some more exercises and refer me a knee brace and to physiotherapy. 3 months later I still have that annoying pain that comes and goes, and am considering physio because i want to play again and start doing leg stuff at the gym. Just wanted to see if others experienced this and how they dealt with it.
