Pinpoint your pain.
You may have heard a popping sound when your injury first occurred. After that, pain and swelling or tenderness may set in. Other symptoms include an inability to move your knee normally, or an inability to walk without pain or a clicking, uncomfortable feeling. Symptoms are usually worse when a patient is going down stairs or squatting or bending the knee deeply. For some, an injured knee may occasionally get stuck, or lock, at a 45-degree angle temporarily.
