Hi all, New to the forum (I'll register I promise!) here we go...

Alright.. My left know has been swelling more and more for the past 7 days where I can now feel the 'excess' wobble when I walk. I have no problem running or playing sport.

I have no pain at all in my knee, if anything it feels numbish.. (there is a slight grind that can be heard (but not felt) when I bend my knee quickly)

The only effect the swelling is having is it's slowly stopping me from straightening my leg completely (currently around 90%)

My GP had no idea, (refered to a sports physician)

Previous injuries include 2 x lumbar discectomy, 1 x lumbar fusion (L5-S1), 1 x hernia and a winged scapular caused by an over reactive immune system following the fusion.

Oh and I'm 32...

anyone been through anything like this or heard of anything like this?
