I have a clicking sound in my knee when walking up stairs...

Ever since the Chili Bowl, where I played a lock down cornerback and helped lead my team to victory, I have had an issue in my right knee. At first, I had a pain when I would begin to walk after sitting for a period of time. That pain has gone away, but recently I noticed a clicking/popping noise in my knee when I walk up stairs. I don't have the clicking when I walk on level ground.

The clicking seems to be coming from the knee cap area.

Any thoughts on what this might be? I read about a torn meniscus causing this, but not sure if there is pain associated with a torn meniscus, and I don't have pain.

are you still running long distances?

I get this from time to time. Same as you said- it'll hurt, but then go away and just have a popping sound. I've never had it looked at because I just chalked it up to that's what happens when you run over 30 miles/week. It's more annoying than anything else.

You just need to get some cortizone and a "pain killing injection" about an hour before game time and you should be able to play through it.

I am starting to jog again, but this clicking sound started before I started running again.

Most probably fluid on your knee.

Both of my knees pop and the doctor told me it was fluid.. Nothing to worry about.

I found this page on the subject, but "saif" could be a complete idiot...

your inner knee joint may be strained very slightly and loose causing the clicking sound

I had/have similar problems. When I sit down for a while my knees will start hurting, but once I start walking I'm fine. in 2005 I had my meniscus and ACL repaired in the knee that hurt more, and it helped with the clicking part and the pain isn't as bad when I sit for a while. I also have arthritis in them, so at 25, I'm pretty much screwed.

My Mom had both knees replace a little over 10 years ago. She can now run a 4.6/40 in the mall.

Interesting that the two studies referenced are from LSU and Thailand. Not sure how much faith that provides me in the LSU health system.

People ask medical questions on this board all the time. How much faith is that?
