Yes but all it says if you have a question about your knee. What is your question?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.

Last night I was sitting down I grabbed my right knee and put it over my left then I heard a pop I immediately got up to walk it off felt a little pain and little stiffness this morning I got up I can walk on it no problem very little swelling that I see when I bend it past the knee it will hurt

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 5 months ago.

does the knee feel loose or giveway at all?

Customer: replied 5 months ago.

No not really it's sore and little weak

Expert:  Dr. Phil, MD replied 5 months ago.

Okay. You could have a partially torn meniscus

This is when the lining of the knee joint gets torn a bit

It is a common probably and should heal over time

I would get it checked to be sure

in the meantime, use RICE

R=rest

I=ice

C=compression

E=elevation

You should get a good exam and xrays to start by your primary doctor.
