For starters: I was physically tired, working out in a rock climbing gym, the beginning of the last climb of the day, my hands gripping holds above my head, my left foot splayed outbound on a ledge, my right foot on the mat. I put my right foot, splayed outbound, on a ledge and transferred my weight to that leg. I felt a pop on the outside of the right leg. Within twenty minutes, I'd begun elevation, ibuprofen and ice. There has been no swelling. An xray showed nothing of interest. The two attending physicians, both young, split their diagnosis; the emergency room doctor thinking LCL, the orthopedist thinking lateral meniscus. A review of online symptoms/diagnosis is equally inconclusive. A 'special' consideration: when walking as normally as possible, left foot forward, when the body weight is released from the damaged right trailing leg, I experience a pop from the lateral knee.
Thanks for your attention. The injury occurred 60 hours ago as of approximately 8am GMT, 4am CST Chicago USA, midafternoon India.
