Brief Answer: Get x-ray done. Detailed Answer: Hi, I have gone through your query. Pain inside the knee seems to be due to some ligament tear inside knee joint. It can be diagnosed accurately with physical examination, X-ray and MRI. Though there can be other possibilities. Thus the doctor may advise you x-ray and if need be then he may advise you MRI. You can discuss the report with your doctor. Your doctor will do inspection and palpation of your knee joint and compare his findings with your x-ray report. Do not worry about bubbles on knee cap. These seem to be blisters. Please do not apply ice and heat together as it may increase the size of bubbles/blisters. Do not try to puncture your blisters by yourself. Let your doctor assess you. For pain you may take 1 tablet aceclofenac + serratiopeptidase 3 times a day by discussing it with your doctor. Please do not take any medicine without prescription of your doctor. Try to avoid running and prolong standing for at least 3 weeks. I hope you have got your answer. Let me know if I can assist you further. Thanks. Dr.Singh.
