    What could be wrong with my knee?
    An_245399 posted:
    I'm just wondering I am going back to the doctor in a week. I hurt my knee playing soccer, someone slide tackled me. I fell on my left knee with all of my weight. Then it started swelling and hurt a lot, I had to limp. Went to a PA and he said either bruised or torn meniscus. I am on crutches now. However, yesterday in class my knee locked in a way where I could not move it past 90 degrees but it would move back. Also my knee cap is too high up and will not move. This might just be because of swelling. Also my knee clicks and pops. What should I do until I get to the doctor? And also what could be wrong?
