somthin' fobar in my kneecap. It's suddenly catching and causing pain when I bend the knee...couldn't go in to work tonite cuz it was catching so much. Now it's catching with every bend...hoping it will subside, but thinkin' it might mean surgery...torn meniscus??? This started a while back with just a random major popping and pain on a routine knee bend...happened a couple more times over the next few days, now tonite again, and it's now a constant "catch"...I'm hoping for just a minor arthroscopic cleanup...dammit, I was just gonna get back to some b-ball, too!!!

A doc and rest it.  It's easy to mess it up worse.  Knees are really fragile.  They're two bones held together with a bunch of rubber bands basically.  If the tension in one of the bands is off, you can't balance on it.  You don't want that.  Get it looked at!!!!

That's what I was thinking, torn Meniscus. the popping is the bones bumping into/rubbing against each other, if that's the case.

 

Go get it looked at ASAP.

Craziest thing...I've been limping around with that noticeable catch and pain when bending my knee(tho the catch isn't there 100%, only 95%), and gingerly going down stairs, I stumbled, fell and bent my knee pretty hard. Got up and the catch is gone. Knee is still sore and needs looked at, but no catch, range of motion pretty normal...1st visit to primary doc and x-ray showed a spur on my patella, but the specialist needs to look and bring me in, hopefully soon(tho they're sayin' 2wks or more)...

Do a search for Absorbine Veterinary Liniment and check it out. It's formulated for horses, but a friend recommended it to me for my on and off knee pain from knowing Art R Ritis. This stuff works better than anything I've tried from the drug store.

Docs didn't find anything conclusive, and over time my knee just got better again. Catching and pain gone, just some stiffness at times. And I actually got out and played some hoops, it felt great!!! Strange that I can go full out on the BBall court, but just turning or a casual step will occasionally bring an acute pain twinge...

Horse tranquilizer??? I heard PCP was a horse tranquilizer, so that'd be a yep, done that(not a very fun drug, IMO)...I'm not lookin' for whoa, I want some giddy-up-go...
