This is a real life worry. Help me out if you can. . .
I’m 26 years old, and as of a few months ago, every time I go down stairs, my right knee starts ‘popping’. It sounds almost exactly like when you pop a knuckle on your hands.
Why am I worried? My father seriously tore up his knee in front of me in the middle of a basketball game once. I play a lot of ice hockey. I take serious hikes with good loads on my back. I’m military, and I like my job. Why am I worried? That damn popping noise. It always happens. Before I work out, after I work out. There’s no pain, but just the noise. It’s freaking me out.
Anybody have this before? Should I be concerned? After walking empty handed down the stairs tonight, I guess I said “enough is enough”. I just had to ask . . .
This could end my stellar amateur hockey career.
