What could be the reason for knee problem at the age of 12 years ?

Hello I m 12 years old and a girl. Whenever I bend my knees they crack but it doesn t hurt. When I try to squat I can t because the pain in my knee is too much to handle. If I sleep with knees bent at night they will hurt a whole lot the following day. Also, when I bend my leg really fast, back and forth, they make this crunching sound. What is happening?

You need to visit an Orthopaedic doctor as you will require detailed examination since you have pain in squatting or bending which are common movements & they should not hurt.
