Hi,thanks for query.Yes your guess is right,there has to some sort of ligament injury or meniscus injury which is giving rise to pain.You need a MRI for proper diagnosis.You need to consult orthopedic surgeon for this ,I do not know whether they will attend to you in ER or not as it is 2 year old injury.
wishing you good health.
