Hi folks, I damaged my knee years ago playing soccer and its plagued me on and off ever since.
I've read up quite a bit on it lately and it seems I may have a meniscus tear and/or cartilage/bone fragments in my left knee.
I could live with it up until about a year ago until I got into a routine playin soccer on astro turf, then my knee swelled up like a balloon.
Now it locks up daily (which is pretty painful), I've no strength in it at all, clicks all the time, hard lumps appear around the knee cap occasionally when I bend my knee then disappear when I straighten out my leg.
It's getting worse and now it's really starting to make an impact on my fitness/general health.
I've been to physiotherapy in the past and no joy there (its not gonna help with the loose bone/cartilage anyway) so I'm looking for a good sports doctor/specialist to set me right, ideally around Dublin city centre but anywhere in Dublin would do.
Any help or advise would be much appreciated.
