Popping sounds in the joints heard occasionally is just normal. It may happen due to some excess stress. If you do not have any pain at both the places then you need not worry.Mild decrease in joint fluid may also be the cause of this sound.

I am an 18 year old distance runner and have been training for the 3200 meter in track. The other day I had soreness and a slight popping in the back of my knee. My own research seems to indicate that I have injured my Semitendinosus Tendon. The discomfort is on the back inside of my right knee where the tendon. Could this be the problem? If it is, what is the best thing to do? I have a conference meet tonight and sectionals in 2 weeks.

I have suddenly acquired pain in the back of my knee. The pain doesn t travel down my leg or extend from the upper part of my leg. I had no physical activity that caused it. I was sitting in class and went to leave class and I had the pain. I rested it last night, to see if it was just something that needed down time. The pain persisted today. I do not typically have pain when I m walking, only after climbing stairs or putting weight on the front and ball of my foot. The pain is only in my left leg, the right is unaffected. The pain is a sharp weakening pain.

I have had lower back pain; knee pain causing sharp sporadic pain that also radiates into my foot and sometimes loss of function, popping, and swelling. I don t know if these areas of pain are related. symptoms have been present for more than 6 months. Getting worse every day.
