My knees have always been a little dodgy and they used to lock in place occasionaly, only ever when my leg was bent. I'd have to rub my knee until it click and then it would feel fine. They would be no bruising or swelling. Back in April my left leg dislocated and upon going to the hospital I found out leg locking isn't normal :P From a young age we just reffered to it as "leg lock" So I jsut assumed it happened to people. :P I had 3 Xrays whilst I was in hospital and they were no broken bones. I went home with a bandage and went to physio from thereafter. I had to go back to do an MRI on my leg and they said they had found something (I can't exactly remember what x_o) But the doctor told me to keep with Physio and on 12th December to return and they'll ****s my muscles in my knee and see if I can have surgery for February. I don't know exactly what the surgery will do but they said it's only a 60% chance that it will fix anything at all. Though now, (November) my right leg has been having a LOT of pain around the knee. It feels stiff sometimes and when I straighten it I can feel it click and if someone places there hand on my knee they can also feel something click. After I have straightened it my knee will be in a lot of pain and throb for about 10-40 seconds and then it won't hurt as long as I keep it straight. I have tried doing my physio excercises for my right leg as well but it's not getting any better.

Shoud I mention this to the doctor upon my next visit? I was thinking about going to the doctors tomorrow as the pain is seeming to get worse.

Do you think they are both related?

Thank you in advanced for your answers ^^
