27 male in good shape and have always been very active. Ive never been much of a runner, but this past summer I did a triathalon. During training and the race my knee would start to have sharp pains on the outside near the IT band at about the 2-3mile mark. I could wait a few days and the irritation would go away, but stretches and training didnt help. Im now wondering if I had some damage from a motorcycle accident that I had 2-3 years ago. My bike flipped when I got cut off and the bike landed on my knee. I ended up with a massive bruise and could barely move my knee. Xray showed no broken bones and a follow-up MRI showed a massive hematoma (swelling from blood in knee) but I dont know if they looked at anything else.
Im posting here because my knee still hurts and now its getting stiff and hurts when I straighten it fully. During some motions and turns it feels kind of goofy like it could pop even though it doesnt hurt too much. Im wondering if I have a torn meniscus or something else. Does anyone else have any experience with blunt force trauma like this?
