Popping pain in knee, unable to walk on left leg, had a fracture long back. Could the avulsion fracture be causing this ?

I fractured my knee when i was 12. I was jumping over a picnic table when my leg got caught between the tabletop and the seat. Im 23 now and recently made a goal to get in the best shape of my life. The first week i ran a mile and at some point my knee popped out (something it hurt) and i could hardly make it home. I took it easy and it seemed to heal and get strong in about a week. I then started to run again and went strong for 4 months until last week i ran 3 miles and had no pain or anything in fact i felt good but the next morning i could hardly walk on my left leg, the pain centering around the knee. Not much swelling at all but after 5 days im still having pain. Could the avulsion fracture i had be causing these issues? or is it more likely im just over working myself Read more: General Q and A Forum - avulsion fracture knee WWW.WWWW.WW Follow us: @ehealthforums on Twitter

Thank for asking to HCM
This may not be the case as you are thinking in fact the knee joints are very fragile joints and much vulnerable to any kind of injury some time we are totally unaware of such injury but the knee joint being badly injured, so in my opinion it is better to go for x-ray study of your knee joint have nice day.
