Hello Dr Siegel, My name is Ruby Jaitly and I am 33 year of age. Since last year i starting noticing some knee joint problems. Kindly advice me . I am very apprehensive and not able to speak to anyone on this due to social reasons. Symtoms i noticed- Initially i felt crackling pop sound with some minor pain while bending knee - this arised after one day i had gone to disco with high heels. initially also i use to feel slight amount of pain on particular angle while bending knee not in general posture but i were to try walking down stairs again minor, It goes away sometimes when i rest and do walking and strch myslef. but now i feel i have similar slight pain while i climed with putting pressure on knee ONLY...otherwise.

your symptoms would be consistent with a patient who has a meniscal tear. this is the shock absorber in the knee. diagnosis can be made by physical examination and MRI scan. treatment is arthroscopic repair or removal of the tear.
