I ran 2 miles yesterday pain free during the run, but my knee has become sore today. There is very little to no swelling in the knee today or after the original injury. I had a torn miniscus in this knee that was surgically repaired about 5 years ago. From what I can remember, I don't think this pain is the same. Any advice as to what this might be? Thank you.

I do have small pain near the right knee joint / knee cap. Whereas I do have more pain on the inner side of left knee joint. I had scheduled an appointment with Orthopedician next monday. Meanwhile I had regular scheduled physical therapy, who examined and said I might have rapture / strained the ligament. If I stand still I don't feel pain but I feel pain when I bend knee either while changing position from stand to sit. Is this I need to worry about and see emergency immedialtely.
Oh does it? Really. Shouldn't those hurt? I don't feel pain when I keep my leg still. But it occasionally aches if I sit down (or just stand sometimes) and put weight-like elbows on my knees. I can feel some pain flaring up which feels like inside the knee or under the kneecap, but when I change the position or move the weight away the pain disappears. I was walking some today. It was okay. Got home and it starting to have this slight locking up feeling if I move it wrong.

When this happened it was extremely painful and when I finally straightened my knee there was a loud pop. After that the back of my knee seemed alittle swollen and was sore for the rest of the day and most of Sunday. I had some tenderness and some instability going up and down stairs. I went to my doctor to get it looked at yesterday however my knee seemed fine and I didn't seem to be having anymore pain. So it was hard for her to diagnose what was wrong.

So, the surgeon suggested that since I was having such difficulty with the locking and general pain in my knee that we do an arthroscopy on my right knee. I said yes hoping for relief after all these years. The weeks leading up to the surgery he prescribed me Lortab 5-500 (when they still made this strength) 1 every 4-6 hours and would always make me call his nurse to get a refill which was a little annoying but that's fine.

im 14 and ever since i fell about a year ago i began having real bad knee pain it started in my right knee, it was relly bad & i couldnt walk w/o crutches and a knee brace for about a week. then the pain went away for a while about 4 1/2 months and now its come back but this time on my left knee. i dont know if this has anything to do with my injury, it also could be my weight even though it shouldnt because im not too overweight just average.
I do not experience any grinding, locking, catching or giving way of the knee. There are no positions that make my knee uncomfortable other then putting my weight on it while kneeling. It feels totally normal otherwise. The pain is as if I knelt on a sharp rock or tack or even as if my bone is splintered. It began a couple of weeks ago while kneeling. I have not tried anything to help the pain other then not kneeling on it. Never had surgery. No hip pain or ankle pain.

Your symptoms of grinding, popping and stiffness indeed suggest that you are having osteoarthritis. Any grinding is characteristic of osteoarthritis; locking and catching are characteristic of meniscus injuries and osteochondritis dissecans (meniscus injuries are much more common than osteochondritis dissecans); and giving way is more characteristic of ligamentous injuries.
