I tore my meniscus about a year ago. My knee has been giving me problems. MRI showed internal dereangment of the knee but the specialist I was sent to refused to do anything. Now my knee for the past 2 weeks my knee has been locking up, and giving out. Everytime I move my knee you can feel and hear it click and pop. The pain is getting worse not quite unbearable yet. I'd say on a 1-10 scale 1 being no pain and 10 being the worst I would say 7 1/2 to 8. I've been talking over the counter pain relievers and I have a compression brace on it. And I have iced it and elevated it. None of these things seem to be helping. What should I do?

Doctor was not keen in listening to issue, instead he looked to be in too much hurry & appeared he wanted to target as many cases as possible. He didn't even look at previous prescription suggested by another doctor. Handed over his visiting card & asked me call his mobile recommending to visit his private clinic in future located at Jayanagar 9 block. more..
