45 yo male, very active entire life. Do cardio (elliptical), yoga and weights multiple times a week. Added more walking to my regiment, and gradually started getting a pop then slight pain in left knee left side. No swelling. What should I do?

Knee pain : It could be a meniscal (cartilage) tear from the increased activity. Also ITB syndrome or LCL strain are possible. Start with eval by your primary care doctor.
