Knee pain: hello ~ do you remember twisting the knee because that is really important. Painful knee such that you cannot flex it at your age needs to be seen by an ER doc or reg doc; the differential here could be strain/sprain/torn ligaments if trauma present a torn meniscus or plain osteo-arthritis.

Abrasion of knee: This type of injury can lead to deeper infection and swelling of the patellar bursa (fluid sack around the knee cap). If there is redness and warmth, antibiotics are crucial to avoid spreading. Drainage and use of a steroid injection for an inflamed bursitis can speed up the healing if not infected. ...Read more

Cartilage damage?: you could have an internal derangement that is causing your clicking and pain. If you haven't had it checked out yet, see an orthopedic specialist. He will need to know when the clicking occurs and what things make your knee feel worse. You may need x-rays and possibly an MRI. ...Read more

I am 41years old. I did not have problems with my knees until I moved in my apartment because I have stairs. What can I take or do to stop?

Several things to do: I suggest seeing your doctor to consider an X-ray of one or both knees. At 41, there may be a component of arthritis present. Aside from that, if you are carrying a bit of extra weight, work on losing bodyfat. You can also work on strengthening the thigh & hamstring muscles which directly impact the knee joint. Also consider anti-inflammatory supplements like fish oil, curcumin, and boswellia. ...Read more

I twisted my knee and now can't move it. Is it broken?

Probably not: The tightness in the joint is more likely due to swelling deep inside the joint. It is possible that you have simply sprained or strained the knee and with rest, ice, and anti-inflammatory medications (motrin, aleve, (naproxen) etc) it will impove on its own.
