I had a fall and my knee popped as i fell. I can't walk or fully extend my leg. Id this an MCL tear? Pain on the inside of my knee.

More likely ACL Tear: Injury of the knee associated with a "pop" at the time of injury is most often associated with an injury to the anterior cruciate ligament. This injury is often associated with concurrent injuries to the menisci, which could explain the pain on the inside (medial) side of the knee. Bone bruising and injuries to to articular cartilage may also occur. I strongly recommend an orthopedic evaluation. ...Read more

Maybe.: As long as it is an isolated mcl tear it will heal uneventfully. It could be a medial meniscus tear, though. A careful exam can usually distinguish between the two, but in some cases an MRI is needed to rule out meniscal injury. Pain with walking or bending can be seen with both. ...Read more

Consult orthopaedics: The injury to your knee was significant. While the injury to the mcl (medial collateral ligament) will heal on its own, the injury to medial meniscus will probably not. The meniscus tear is most likely the source of your ongoing pain and will most likely require an arthroscopic surgery. Seek an orthopaedic consult to discuss your best treatment. ...Read more

Mcl tear: It depends on how severe the tear is. These are graded on how much the knee joint opens up with stress, grade 1-3. A grade 1 will be painful but walking will be easy once the pain subsides.
