Probably meniscus tear, follow the advice below.
Hello dear and welcome to ‘Ask A Doctor’ service. I have reviewed your query and here is my advice.
Your symptoms seem to be related to a torn meniscus.
The activities which twist or rotate your knee can lead to a torn meniscus.
I recommend you to do an x-ray to exclude other possible medical conditions.
Meanwhile, I recommend to continue using anti inflammatory medication such as Motrin three tablets a day.
I suggest you to avoid activities that trigger the pain and use ice compresses for pain relief.
I also recommend doing physical therapy to strengthen the muscles which support the knee.
If the symptoms continue you should see an orthopedist for further examination such as an MRI.
Hope I have answered your query. Let me know if I can assist you further.
