Hi there,This is Dr Basu, experienced Internal Medicine Specialist.I am here to address your concerns and provide great service.
Minor torn meniscus should not cause that much problem.
You likely have pseudogout.
This can be confirmed by examining the joint fluid under microscope.
The fluid can be aspirated out and steroid can be instilled in the joint to relieve pain and swelling.
You should see a rheumatologist.
