Patient : I went to the doctor 4 months ago because of right knee pain. I was playing basketball when I injured it. The doctor said I had possibly torn my meniscus and to come back in 4 weeks for an MRI if the pain persisted. Well 4 weeks later I had little to no pain and saw no reason to go for the MRI. Since then I have begun playing softball and I have a little pain on the inside of my knee again, mostly when I turn the wrong way. It also pops almost every time I walk up stairs. Should i go back to the doctor?
