I injured my knee about 4 years back playing football, I twisted around and just ended up on the floor in pain, went to a&e and found I couldn't put weight on it, and it was badly swollen, I never got a proper answer as to what I did, but after a year of following all instructions from the physio, I still found that my knee was giving way during running sports, and I was getting an aching pain after walking for anything over an hour, then about 6 months ago I re-injured the same knee when landing after jumping for a header, I had my knee bent on at first and was in a considerable amount of pain... when I straightened the knee I felt something pop, almost like it was popping back into place? I had massive discomfort, and some pain for weeks, I was told I had partially dislocated my knee cap, again I followed the physios exercises, then bought a bike as recommended, and I've been regularly biking for 2hrs+ a day to strengthen my knee, but 6 months on my knee now gives way alot more often during sports, and it feels almost like my knee is coming apart, my knee sometimes locks when walking which brings me to a full stop, and if I twist my knee quickly whilst putting weight on it I can crack it without fail, I still have swelling appearing at this point... I am also still suffering from aching pains, I was told I should be fit within 8 weeks of the incident, I've had an xray which showed nothing, and I've debated asking for an mri, but I'm not sure whether I should or not? I'm not sure if I am being over dramatic or if this is a major problem? I've been told by some family and friends to just quit any sports involving running, but at 24yrs old I feel like I should have the ability to enjoy the things I love... thanks in advance for any responses! any more details needed feel free to message me
