Hey guys :)

About two years ago I was walking my dog and slipped on some loose gravel outside of the local park. I did some pretty impressive splits (and managed to keep hold of the dog :D ) but when I got home and took off my shoes I noticed that my knee hurt whenever I bent it. It was like a sharp shooting pain, as if I was trapping a nerve.

It went off after a few hours, but ever since then I've always had problems with that knee. It feels weak at times and almost collapsed underneath me when I lifted my suitcase onto a train. Also, whenever I have a driving lesson (I have to use that knee to operate the accelerator and brake) it hurts the exact same way it did when I first injured it - sharp shooting pain when I bend it. So for about an hour after lessons its painful to walk upstairs.

Any ideas what could be going on? It isn't swollen and doesn't cause me that much problem, I'm more curious than anything.

Thanks for any help guys.
Hi there -- welcome! Sorry about your injury. Keep in mind that a diagnosis over the internet is not the goal, but maybe someone has had a similar experience and can share their experience.

When you initially injured your knee, did it bend in (or toward) a direction it shouldn't? Or, was your injury more like a jamming of a joint? (Like when basketball players jam their fingers) Or do you remember? Which area of the knee hurts? (middle, inner side, outside, above the kneecap, etc.)

If you have recurrent problems that interfere with your life, please be sure to consult a doctor.
