Hi,
With the history posted by you it seems to be that there might be an loose bodies within the joint cavity and you may require an arthroscopy for confirmation of diagnosis.

Have an consultation with your orthopedician

that is the Ligament that makes ur knee move back and forth. and because mine is a near complete tear ,my knee gives way and i fall down alot. my knees are (no lie) blood red for some reason. They hurt everyday that there is. So much pressure in them . and when my knees crack they hurt soooooooo badddddd that i can hardly walk at times. I have been fitted for 4 knees braces. That the first one sent me to the Hospital. I kept telling the lady who put the first brace on my R. knee that it was toooo tight. She said that it was supose to be like that and it would be ok. ya right.Within one hr.  I had to be rushed to the Hospital because of the brace being too tight It pretty much jammed that Cyst
