Hi! I am 16 year old and active in sports.I have cracking in both of my knees almost everyday and once,i have a sharp pain in my left knee.I am worried if i hve injured my knees due to sports activities. So,what could hve caused the cracking?
I get the same thing, I'm always riding my bike to work and I go jogging I went the doctors and he said because of the cracking and inflammation of the knees he thinks I have cartilage trapped behind both knee caps which can be caused by any hard impact on the knees like running on concrete which I do and riding bike uphill n stuff. He said there's not much he can do just said to take antiflammatry tablets when it irritating. It seems to be gettin worse though for me, they are now starting to stiffen up when I sit down for a long period. Strange :)
