Knee injury or something not serious


Q: Earlier this morning I bent down to grab something that fell pretty quick, I bent down all the way and heard a very quiet popping sound which I normally hear bending down. My knee hurt immidiately afterwards but not to unbearable pain so I continued my day Andre pain went away. When I returned home today it began to feel awkward like I couldn't straighten my knee all the way and when I flexed it, there was a slight sore kind of pain. When I try and bend it all the way, it feels like there is something restricting me from doing so, like something is in the wrong place but I'm not sure. It doesn't necessarily bring unbearable pain when trying to bend it but I'm worried I'll tear something from bending it with it feeling so strange. I'm very young active and have never had knee issues before the occasional nonpainful popping when bending it.

Symptoms:  Knee pain when bending and straightening fully
