I play ice hockey, and over the last 5 years I have had recurring knee issues with my right knee. My right knee clicks and pops a lot when I walk. Now, tha doesn't generally cause pain, but any time this problem does occur, it is accompanied by related issues with it. For example, if I try to get on my knees (happens a lot in hockey) I have a lot of trouble and pain getting up off my right knee. I feel like the shin moves inward. I did just have surgery on my left knee for torn ACL/MCL/Meniscus earlier in the year, but that knee is acting pretty normal when I get up on it.
This issue with my right knee occurred on and off for about 3 years, it went away for about 18 months, and just started up again recently after a fall I took on it. After the fall the symptoms slowly came back, and the pain and popping is getting much more frequent in the last few weeks. This isn't preventing me from playing hockey right now, but I am worried it might be something semi-serious. Thanks.
