Stiffness in left knee since last 40 day
Dear Dr I have met an bike accident. I have got minor external injuries in hand and knee. But the left knee didn't get any external injuries. I didn't take much rest used to walk using my left leg as right leg got minor external injuries. Bones are intact as I am comfortable in walking and twisting my both leg. Problem is that in my left knee I feel stiffness. And sometime I loose my confidence in standing and walking. I feel as if I will fell on ground sometimes and having problm in prolong walking... Should I go for MRI and consult a orthopedic. Mostly it's not problematic but some time I feel little pain... Very much concerning issue is stiffness of my knee joints.

The stiffness in the left knee is because it is feeling overworked as you are protecting the injured right. Secondly to the overuse, the muscles of the front of the thigh, the quadriceps, is getting fatigued. When that muscles faces a challenge, sudden turning or getting up after sitting, it fails to provide the required support of the knee cap which feels like giving way.
Next Steps
start putting weight on the right leg so that the left will get rest.
