Dancer needs help with Knee pain

Patient

Q: Hi Doctor,

I am a Bollywood dancer which is a high energy dance. Last week I was choreographing and also used to go on walks or jogs. Then after a few days, my knee started to do some grinding noise and the muscles on the left side of my right knee was pulsing. Then the same night it started to hurt. like Dull pain. It feels weak and I cannot dance anymore as it requires twisting and turning, and my knee is painful. When i walk up or down the stairs it doesn't hurt, but only when i am dancing like twisting, or when i put some pressure on my knee. Sometimes there is a burning feeling on the left side of my knee. Please help!
