See your doctor: With these kinds of symptoms and their persistent nature, it's best if you see your doctor. He/she will listen to you, do an examination, possibly run some tests and let you know what's going on.

MRI is key: Mri is very helpful in evaluation of knee soft tissue injury including evaluation of ligaments, tendons as well as menisci. It can also visualize scar and post surgical knee abnormalities. After the MRI results, if abnormal, you should discuss further treatment with an orthopedist or sports medicine physician.
