Pain while bending and straightening the knee. Chances of a torn meniscus?

I have pain whenever I bend my knee or put it into an awkward position and as I try and straighten it out, it begins to hurt even more and the only way for it to stop is if I straighten it all the way until something clicks or pops. I suffered from what I think might have been a torn meniscus about 2 months ago. Is there anything I can do? I don't have insurance, so I cannot get it checked or have surgery

Thanks for writing to us.
The pain that you are having in the knee is likely to be due to torn meniscus or osteoarthritic changes in the knee. Regular hot fomentation, mild pain killers, using an elastic brace and mild physiotherapy exercises will help.
