I fell in a funny way, where my knee was bent to the right and i fell to the left. It hurts to put any pressure on that leg and its very hard to walk. When i have to walk, i have to hop a little. Every couple steps it feels like the bone in that leg pops to the right and it hurts really bad.
Whats wrong with my leg??

  • Last year playing soccer I got pushed and landed on my knee and I went to the doctors a week later because I still had brusing and trouble weight bearing. Sometimes the pain was horrible and sometimes it was fine. It turns out that I had dislocated my knee and messed up some ligaments when the knee dislocated. I also found out I never knew it was dislocated because it popped back into place when I was walking off the field.That might have been what happened to you.But I say a doctor knows best. It sounds close to the same as mine though.
