Knee pain

I am a 34 yr old nurse of 11 yrs. over the last 3 weeks I have been having alot of pain to the lateral side of my left knee. Mainly when I am standing from being in a squatted position. The pain is so bad I have to hold on to something and slowly straighten up. I can walk just fine. It hurts when I bend my calf to my thigh when I am shaving. I have been taking alot of IBU and applying ice. I finally went to see the doctor and they what to do an mri...Any suggestion?

I would suggest getting that MRI. I have knee issues too but mine is a cartilage defect. You may have torn something or could have a meniscus tear, which is what your symptoms sound like to me. Good Luck:)

what was the result of this Meangirl05?  I have the exact same issue right now.  If you're still around, I would be very interested in hearing what happened.
