My left leg got thinner than my right
The problem started when i first had a discomfort while fully bending my left leg it was before 7 to 8 months back. I played Cricket after a very long time i involved in this physical activity all of a sudden without any warm ups, but few days after that i noticed this discomfort. But then i started noticing my left leg getting thinner than my right. I consulted a doctor and an MRI was taken on my left knee the results showed minimal left knee joint effusion and ACL mild grade 1 sprain,This is before 8 months. But now while bending my knee i feel stiffness and it hurts a little when i fully fold my left knee, it only got worse from then. And my left leg is also getting thinner, I've been doing exercises now i have taken physiotherapy for my left knee (IFT) but no improvement yet. I sometimes feel a slight discomfort on my left lower back sometimes. I'm not clearly told why this condition persists or the reason for this problem yet.

Grade one sprain needed correlation clinically as if more than 23% fingers of ACL get stretched never heals. If you have history of twisting or giveaway feeling around knee. Better consult a ortho doctor and get your ligaments and meniscus checked clinically and if needed get MRI Repeated. You may need diagnostic arthroscopy with ACL reconstruction if needed.
Next Steps
Better see an Orthopedic surgeon.

Grade one sprain of your knee shouldn't cause you instability.. Pain should not persist for so long only with a sprain. You need proper clinical examination for instability and meniscus which might be the cause of pain.
