knee injury and excess hair growth

I fell out of a the door of a van whilst it was mobile and the impact of landing in an upright position cause injury to my knee.  This was over 8 weeks ago and I am still experiencing a great deal of pain when bending and weight bearing.  I experienced swelling to the knee which took weeks to reduce and have since been unable to weight bear whilst bending the knee.  Recently I have felt as though my knee is locking and can feel a grinding clicking sensation in the joint; I have also noticed excess hair growing in the affected area.  I recently visited my GP to discuss my concerns about recovery and mentioned the increased hair growth.  He seemed baffled and suggested I have an xray.  Any suggestions as to what the problem might be because its getting me down?
