Please get the knee checked out anyway by an Ortho. I say this because, even small changes in your knee can make you unaware of 'compensations' you make walking sometime. You can damage tendons, ligaments and soft tissue that may need to be addressed. Leaving them unattended can lead to major problems down the road.
Many years later, I had a total knee replacement. makes me wonder if I would have needed it, if only I had cared for myself properly along the way. Best wishes to you.
I had a long and storied life as a crash test dummy. Gymnastics, football, baseball, bronc rider, and oh so much more. How does that song go? If I had known I would have lived this long I'd have taken better care of myself. I wouldn't trade a minute of it, but the slide into middle age reminds me of every step along the way!

6gun. I totally understand about sliding into middle age slightly worse for wear!! I am on the downhill slide into OLD age and have had several close calls with life and limb. I figure if hubby loves me as I am then I am going to keep on enjoying life and don't worry about wear and tear on the old body... as long as the wear and tear doesn't kill me or put me down!!
