So about 5-6 weeks about I was in the trees and hit a buried stump. I didn't think I was going that fast, but I ended up irreparably bending the ski that was on my right leg (yeah, new skis!).
Since then I have had pain in my right knee and also behind the knee in the upper portion of my calf. Now the pain has definitely diminished and isn't there when doing everyday activities. But if I really bend the knee to where the calf touches the hamstring the pain is there behind the knee. For about 2-3 weeks there was a popping noise along with the pain when I would bend the knee. Also, the whole knee hurts when kicking something, like kicking into snow, and also when riding a bike specifically when pressing down on the pedal hard.
I'm wondering if I pulled something behind my knee because when I hit the tree my leg straightened as my weight fell forward. But because my foot was locked in I may have torn something.
There wasn't really anything in the x-rays to be too concerned about, but my doctor recommended getting an MRI. I will probably get an MRI done depending on the cost.
I'm just wondering what I did to my knee. I'm 25 and in past injuries most pain goes away after a couple of weeks, but at the same time I probably should have taken it more easy on my knee since this incident.
