First, thing, first. I am seeing my physician, but it won't be for a few days. In the meantime I'm seeking to learn from the experience of others.
I believe I may have a meniscus tear in my right knee. While sitting, if I cross my right leg over my left I get a sharp acute pain in the soft tissue area in the inside of my knee that feels like it radiates into the joint slightly. Any other time I have the same dynamics (what could be seen as any pressure on the lower part of the leg toward the inside of the center line of my body, while the upper leg is stationary - think slight lever action) I get the sharp pain. So, I'm guessing it's most likely a meniscus tear.
I'm torn between riding between now and the visit with my physician. It tends not to hurt while riding, except when my pedal stroke gets sloppy. Then I get an immediate quick shot of pain, that tells me to pedal more smoothly. As long as the motion is straight up and down, I seem good.
Any other have experience with this?
