( year old with pain behind her knee

I have a 9 year old little girl, who has been having on and off pain behind her knee for about 6 months now. I have taken her to the doctor for this twice now. Both times xrays were done and came back normal, blood tests were also done and came back normal. She is limping and on pain, at time she is crying. They are sending her to an orthopedic. What could be causing this?? This is so frustrating and confusing when you cant help your children.

Hi there and welcome.  Knees are tricky.  One can hyperextend it, hurt the cartilage, etc.  Glad she is seeing an orthapaedic doctor as this should be very helpful.  She may have something that needs corrected.  If they don't have a great answer, they may suggest seeing a physical therapist which can also be VERY helpful.  good luck!

They think it is a Meniscus Tear. The pain has stopped for now, but as soon as it start back up they are doing an MRI. Thanks for responding :)
