I am going through a very hard period in my life right now.
Until two months ago, life seemed relatively promising.
But now it looks uncertain, as I feel I am losing even the small things which used to make happy.
To sum it up, I used to jog.
And last month, even if on that day I wasn't in my best shape, I went on a long run because I wanted to lose some weight.
When I finished my run, I felt that my legs were weak, and I couldn't even straighten my legs.
However, the doctor said that I had just a muscle strain, and I completely recover very soon.
For the time being, I don't feel pain, but I can't take more than just a few steps, because my legs are weak,
However, some day ago, while I tried to get up from a chair, and I used my left leg, I felt as if something had run through my left knee.
I wouldn't say it was painful, but once I was on my feet, my left leg felt a bit weaker than my left leg probably felt a bit weaker, at least for the fist moments.
Is this possible that this could have been a meniscus tear?
I've hear that there are some tests to check this, but I think it would think it would be better for me to try than when I'm feeling a little better.
Anyway, assuming this is a meniscos tear, what should I do for now and in the future?
Should I listen to a doctor again?
And how long could it take for this to develop into osteoarthritis?
