I recently suffered a knee injury where there was a popping sensation followed by instability and limited range of motion for about 6 weeks. I have regained a full range of motion and there is no instability anymore. However when I bend my knee, the fibula head tends to pop out of place, to no pain. Also, sitting with full pressure on my legs causes pain on the injured knee. I know that it is the lcl that causes the fibula head to pop out slightly. What is the likely course of action that will be required?

Hello Dr. I m a 26 year old male and I injured my left knee last night, I believe I hyperextended it or something because I know exactly when it occurred. It now has swollen up and I notice a small red circle where the most pain occurs. I cant fully extend my knee and any movement to left or right is extreme pain. I looked online for what it could be and I notice the lateral meniscus? Was wondering what steps should I take or will it eventually heal back on its own.

In a soccer game, I slid on the turf ground and scraped up/opened up my knee. It s a topical injury, it s not deep. However, in the days after the injury, the area surrounding the cut as well as up my thigh had been hurting. My knee began to hurt internally as well. Today, I noticed that bumps or pimples starting forming up my thigh starting from where the injury is and creeping up my leg. Should I see a doctor about this? I m not sure if it requires medical attention.
