If you've torn your meniscus, you may experience the following signs and symptoms in your knee:

  • A popping sensation
  • Swelling or stiffness
  • Pain, especially when twisting or rotating your knee
  • Difficulty straightening your knee fully
  • Experiencing what feels like a block to moving your knee, as if your knee were locked in place

When to see a doctor

Contact your doctor if your knee is painful or swollen, or if you can't move your knee in the usual ways.
